Yep, I have to ask. Of course I have my own personal opinion on makeup as a whole. I see it as fake, a mask, unrealistic and something to laugh at- especially the hole 'natural look'- where's the 'nature' in covering your face in a ton of makeup to get it to look like your wearing none at all?
Well than. That's my cynical approach to makeup and why I dislike it...very much.
When I ask my sisters and friends why they wear it, I receive the usual (rather generic) answers of "its fun" "i enjoy it" and my personal favorite, "why do you care? It's none of your business"
Now my question to you ladies, why DO you wear it? Is it for security? If so, where's the security in knowing that isn't your real face once its all washed off at home. Is it to highlight your features and make them stand out? Again. They won't be standing out so much when you get home. I may sound like I am criticizing and judging, but that is not my intention. I really do speak like this all the time, so please take as minimal offence as possible.
So, enlighten me, I am thoroughly curious.

I'm generally in the same boat as you- I don't get the idea of NEEDING makeup to look beautiful, how can putting stuff on your face that actually ages you be good for your appearance? I'm sort of a come as you are kind of person- pretty straight up. I think I should be happy with the face I was born with and I generally am.
But I do wear makeup now and again- mostly for special occasions where it's expected (weddings, formal dinners etc.), job interviews (for some reason it's simply considered professional for women), and every now and then when I feel like playing around with make up. That's just mostly to see what it can do because, I'll be honest, it can definitely high light your features. But a lot of make up for me is mascara, eye shadow, and lip gloss. That's pretty much all I wear, ever and day to day, I'm usually natural. I don't like how makeup feels on my face and I like to think I'm pretty without it most of the time. (Except when I'm sick or tired, then I just look, well, sick or tired lol).0
