Someone in another thread said something about looking "scary" without makeup, and that got me thinking. How do you think you look without a stitch of makeup on? Do you really "need" it?

I look like a walking corpse because my dark circles are so bad! Also I have really sparse eyebrows that look totally weird, and of course I usually have brown spots where a blemish healed. When I appear bare-faced (rare) I get asked if I'm feeling ok. Yes, I NEED makeup, to avoid frightening innocent people.
Good thing I also LOVE it!

Me without makeup? I look rather sleepy without it, cuz I have very dark circles too! I inherited darkness beneath my eyes and on my eyelids... so much that sometimes people say "Oh, I love that brown eyeshadow you're wearing!", to which I reply "I'm not wearing any makeup!!" I feel much more awake & healthy once I put on some foundation and concealor, just to even everything out.

I can basically go without it. The only item that I HAVE to have is eyeliner. However, I wear makeup most days just because I love it so much.

I never leave the apartment without foundation, concealor, and powder! Not only do I have dark circles like several girls have mentioned, but I also have very oily, shiny skin and normally have several bright red blemishes which really stand out on my pale skin!
Fortunately I can hide all of those things pretty well with makeup! (Well, only if I keep applying powder to hide the oil!)

I can't go without make-up. I look pale/reddish spots on my face/dark circles under my eyes. I basically look like a bad mugshot.



Remember this pic?

I look fine w/o mu. I can honestly say that I can step out of the house w/o it and look fresh. I am very fortunate to have good skin. Never went through the acne phase in high school. My friends use to be so jealous of me. And even now, as I am in my 30's, my skin is good.

Happy Easter!

if I wouldn´t apply self tanner at least once a week I´d look like I´m sick. i´d be sooo pale. add the almost-purple circles under my eyes and the red spots from past breakouts and here I am


funny story: not too long ago a guy saw me taking off my makeup at night and asked me what I was doing (like he has never seen a girl do that *gg*). I said "I´m taking off my makeup"...he said "WHAT? you´re wearing makeup?"

I dont know if I should take this as a compliment b/c he has seen me w/o makeup and obviously liked that sight too. or should I be mad cause after all I mainly do this to look good for the guys and they don´t even notice!

I don't like the way I look without makeup. People say I look drastically different without it also. The funny thing is, when I do wear makeup, its all very natural looking and its not like I wear so much I look like a drag queen or a such.
Jeez! One "friend" of mine said I look like a ghost.


Anyway, yeah - I do look *different* and I usually don't wear makeup when I know I'm staying home and not going anywhere.

I think I look okay without mu. If I can have some blush and lip stuff then I have absolutely no prob at all. I do not have dark circles around my eyes and realize I must be really lucky for that.

I don't think I look that bad w/o makeup. I mean, sure I don't really like the red spots from past breakouts and dark circles, but if I don't feel like wearing makeup one day, I definitely won't. I've only had one occasion where a teacher asked me if I was feeling all right when I wasn't wearing makeup, but I really was sick as a dog that day and just couldn't afford to miss school. I guess people don't notice, or they don't say anything.
