I'm a girl that looks ok with little or no make up daily and I think I look much better when I use more make up (well at least I was told that).
I had to do some photos at my uni so I did that. All my colleagues said that I look pretty, even a girl that I'm not close to, looked at me like saying " yeah she looks good" and asked me why I don't wear it like that more often.
But I don't understand that. It's like I didn't exist on their radar until then. Are they more aware of me now, just because of that? Why is that?

Kudos do you. Whilst many others think they need makeup to look attractive, you are content being your own person. It shows confidence in yourself. I guess for most its knowing that whilst they may already look pretty, they could look even better with makeup on (at least in the eyes of women for the most part). Competitive instincts perhaps? I don't mind up to moderate amounts of makeup on a women, but anymore and like most men I get put off by the barbie doll look! How are we men supposed to compare with that!2

Blah! Sometimes I hate people because they say one thing, but then do another.
*insert cliche "girls look better without makeup" "natural is better" blah. Blah. Blah."*
Most guys think "natural looking makeup" is the same as "no makeup". It's not.
I'm the kinda the same as you. And on those very rare occasions that I wear makeup, people are different. It's like I become a whole different person that is wearing a sign that says "treat me like an actual human being".
It's kinda sad that we humans treat attractive people better.
Guys and girls, complete strangers, will compliment me.
Girls who I've never spoken to, but pass by on a daily basis will ask the same "why don't you wear makeup more often?" It's like wo girl, chill. Do you even know my name? Lol
Guys will hold the door more often.
More people greet me. Or like cashiers when I say hello they won't ignore me.
It's weird. And my brother always tells me to stop being a slovenly bum because "people treat attractive, or those who put efforts into their looks, better".
People say natural is better, but the majority will treat you better when you wear makeup.1
