In a similar manner to the other question I asked on this site, I've been reading through other peoples questions and the subject of makeup and how much to wear etc. has come up quite a bit. So I'm just curious do girls wear makeup as they feel it enhances what they've got or is it worn as a mask to hide behind. As such I've decided to put forward the challenge above, 'Could you survive a week with no makeup'. I'll even expand it to include jewelery, the exceptions to this being items which have sentimental value (e.g. wedding ring) or are practical (e.g. watches).
Basically the challenge is simple (on paper at least) wear no makeup for a week and keep a mental note of how you felt before, during and after the week and if people treated you differently during the week and post them below as an answer. Also include a very, very brief description of yourself (e.g. I'm a tomboy/'girlie girl', I'm quite shy/self-conscious/outgoing/adventurous) and info on how much makeup/jewelery you typically wear.
So is anyone up for the challenge? For those who wouldn't dream of leaving the house without makeup and have no intention of trying, respond anyway with your views on the matter. Similarly, for people who decide to stop midweek respond anyway and state your reason for doing so.

I wear makeup very rarely. If it's a fancy occasion, I'll put some on. It shows extra effort and it dresses things up.
If I'm sick, I'll also put some on because I like to pretend that I'm not sick... and I figure if I give people something else to look at, I won't look as gross. :(
The most I ever wear is eyeliner and mascara-- occasionally I'll put on some lipstick if I wanna look sultry or something, haha, but usually end up wiping it off after five minutes...
I've only worn makeup twice in the past three weeks and once was for a fancy banquet. The other was because I woke up late, was really sleepy looking and had no time to shower. I took two seconds to put on some eyeliner so I didn't look like a 100% failure haha.
As far as my personality, I'm pretty outgoing, kinda studious... I wear makeup occasionally, and my jewelery changes... sometimes I wear tons of bracelets, usually one necklace (sentimental or not), and I used to wear a watch. I always have a hairband on my wrist for practical purposes.0
