Most Helpful Girl
I think they look good with or without it, and I posted up my own answer there just for the hell of it. I think most girls 'in real life' don't really need makeup at all, and for many it comes down to a confidence issue, or just having fun playing with different looks. I'm in the latter category, and most of the time don't wear any makeup at all, which is explained in my answer on that question if you care to look. So I don't see it as putting myself through anything because it doesn't effect me that way.
I know tons of girls who never or rarely wear makeup and look beautiful without it. My boyfriend thinks and tells me I'm very pretty without makeup and doesn't care if I wear any or not, but he also compliments how I look when I DO put some on because he thinks I look nice that way too and likes to acknowledge the effort I took to 'get pretty' and dress up. I don't feel any less confident or attractive around him or anyone else when I don't wear makeup. Plus, we live together, so he sees me at my best AND 'worst' in terms of attractiveness, because no one can look perfect all the time in that situation, and he digs me no matter what. If anything, I think he likes that I feel so comfortable with him, and likes the intimacy of just being real with each other in all of our attractive AND disgusting moments, haha, because we have both and that's inevitable when you live with someone.2
