I never wear any for a few reasons: I'm too lazy to apply it, I don't really know how to do it and feel like whenever I do have it on I look weird (ie prom make-up made me feel like a drag queen), I have nice skin already, and I like to go jogging, biking, hiking, swimming outside a lot so I would have to constantly be fixing it and am not sure I have that much patience.
But I am like the only one of my friends who doesn't wear any so sometimes I feel weird. I have a baby face so people still think I am 15 years old and maybe wearing some would make me look my age? And also I don't know if it's 'immature' for someone my age to not wear any? Girls at my school walk around with a perfectly applied face and it makes me feel less...professional...haha...
Girls: do you think it's weird to not wear any?
Any ideas on what I should even use if I wanted to start wearing some?

It's not weird to NOT wear makeup.
I use to wear a lot of makeup because I had really bad skin and under eye circles and not very shapely lips.
My skin has gotten a bit better.
Plus I am not married so my husband says I'm beautiful with no makeup and hair not straightened so I have gotten really lazy and not done my make up or my hair for the last few months that I've been married.
If you want to start wearing make up and don't want to spend a ton of money here's my tip:
use a good foundation so you won't get acne, try bare minerals at Ulta, they let you try it for free so that you get a good color for you skin tone before you buy it. Make up artists there will help you. That will cost you about $50, $25 for the foundation and $25 for the brush.
Now for the rest of the stuff, I just use wet and wild, which is about $1 each. First use a wet and wild lip pencil for your entire lip, and then put on wet and wild lip balm on top (I use the flavored ones and they taste really good). Later your lips will be moist and have color for LONG LONG hours.
The second thing is use wet and wile eye liner pencils, use the white one for the inner eye tear duct and use the dark brown one for all over your top and bottom lines (use tight lining if you want). Try watching some michelle phan tutorials on how to do this. then lighly pat on some light biege eye shadow to your lids and then some mascara and make sure to lightly blot it with some kleenex so that you will not get smears. If your face is dry you will not get much smears, at least I don't.
Hopefully all this make up stuff will cost you less than $100.0
