So the vote seems to be half and half with no make-up slightly leading the way (but one guy voted for no, haha). I thought I wore "light" make-up because I have seen many girls wear very heavy make up but I guess I would be in the moderate category.
I don't know if it makes me superficial or perhaps weak (to succumb to make-up) but deep-down I just love make-up, like how some women love shoes. Make-up gives me that something "extra" even though I look alright without it. And I do agree that when
applied properly, it is enhancement rather than deception.
Thanks for voting, everyone! It seems to be split down the middle. My final words are that you should all continue doing whatever makes you feel good. If you don't like make-up, great! And if you use it, don't be ashamed or defensive.
Not all of us were born with perfect skin and some of us do need make up to cover the scars. And for some, make-up is an art form (Kevyn Aucoin, Bobbi Brown--> absolute geniuses at what they do). The most important thing is to feel good about yourself!
i wear makeup most of the time, like if I'm going out with friends or at school or work, but if I'm working out (which takes up most of my life), going to the store, or just generally feeling lazy I won't wear any, maybe some mascara if I need a confidence booster.
when I do wear makeup I wear
*benefit cosmetics some kinda gorgeous foundation faker (but I hardly wear this, only when my skin is looking particularly unfortunate)
* eyeliner (if its pencil, then I will put it lightly on top and bottom, but if its liquid, I put thick line on the top and skip the bottome)
*and really really occasionally blush and bronzer.
My natural routine is wearing it all. I cannot imagine daily life without it, especially since my normal skin is a little blotchy, dealing with acne and redness. And as a former model, I've learned many cool technique's of wearing stuff several different ways. My most prominent is eyeliner and mascara as it truly outlines my beautiful hazel eyes (so I've been told many times). Also, I used to do Mary Kay and Avon, so I do know a little more than just something about cosmetics, and I used to do my close pals and help them with color sharing, applications, etc.
I only wear mascara on most days, sometimes I add in some light golden & brown eyeshadow, just to enhance my eyes a little bit, but nothing to heavy at all. When I'm going somewhere special, ill put on some liquid e/l, but that's about it. I don't like wearing lipstick, I'm always with lip balm.
I always wear some kind of eyemake up because I'm used to having it on and for some reason feel prettier for wearing it, I used to wear heavy foundation because I had bad acne but now don't do that because I don't have any anymore.
I don't always wear make up but it's mainly out of laziness. I work at a comestic counter and after several days of working straight, sometimes I just don't want to touch my face. Also, I mainly wear make up for work and that's when I experiement. Usually for everyday, I wear a lot less make up
