    Not me, no. I wear a very strong prescription in my glasses and they make my eyes look really piggy. If I didn't wear mascara, I'd feel like **** because my eyes aren't naturally small - they're just made to appear smaller by my glasses.

    Therefore, No, I won't leave the house with absolutely no makeup on.

    Not really, no. I have quite good skin, but still always wear full foundation, concealer etc...and despite having naturally dark hair, I have really pale eyelashes and eyebrows, which makes me look really washed out!

    Plus, I absolutely adore makeup, I spend a lot of my wages on it, and I love doing it! Love doing my eyeshadow and stuff, and I look so much better when i'm fully made up

    Yes. I think it's pretty pathetic if you can't. You should be just as comfortable without makeup.


    Whenever I see people wearing lots of make up, even if they look pretty, you don't know whether that's them or the make up. It's so easy to look beautiful with make up. It's whether you look beautiful without it that's the interesting thing.
    Yeah but some people aren't lucky enough to be born beautiful, and are they supposed to have it worse off just because of their genetics? Make up can enhance your looks if you weren't born like Audrey Hepburn. That's why I like it

    My skin isn't perfect - it's not horrid but it's not perfect. And I'm really pale and washed out. I'd just rather be spending the time doing other things that aren't make up related. A night out then yeah sure, give me my make up but for a uni lecture I don't see anything wrong with the natural look unless I reeeally need to hide tired eyes.
    fair. But i take it you've never had acne? and no, i'm not talking the little amount of zits most teenagers get, i'm talking the disease that you have for years on end..

    Yeh I can and do, but I prefer to cover spots and blemishes :p:

    I look very pale without make-up though so I usually wear a little bit when I go to uni or round a friends. If I'm going to the shop or something I won't wear any.

    I don't wear it often, apart from occasionally some foundation to cover up spots that's it.

    Aww it's such a shame your glasses make you feel like you can't go without make-up Can you not get contacts in your prescription?

    I was going to say you look like you don't need make-up to look pretty, but obviously you're wearing it in your profile pic so I wouldn't really know :p:

    You mean I'll look ugly if I don't :zomg:

    Ah well, you can't win 'em all. I cannot be bothered with makeup, I only wear it for special occasions. Just meeting up with my friends I wouldn't dream of wearing it, they've seen me without it enough times, why put up the pretence?

    I rarely do unless I'm going somewhere nice - restaurant, cafe, cinema ... if I'm just going shopping or to uni, for example, I don't bother.

    Though sometimes I've bumped into people I know and have regretted not making more of an effort!
    Always happens the day you choose not to apply make-up :rolleyes: And it's usually someone you haven't seen in ages/want to impress/always look made-up.
