wearing a mask?

I admit it, I wore make up when I was younger. That didn't take long to change when I realized that I
was wearing a mask to cover up what I really looked like. Why would I want to do that?
People naturally judge others based on their appearance so why would I hide who I really am?
Why are women so obsessed with how they look? My opinion is that they are ashamed of how others
will view them, sad, we ruin our skin and bodies to appeal to others??

How do you feel about this?

I agree, I constantly worry about how others perceive me, even though I tell myself not to let it happen. It is a tough world and people are nasty and cruel.

like looks etc even matter on Aug 12, 2013 @ 11:08 pm

We are the ones who should admired as being brave while most think your lazy and don't care about yourself.
Just because I don't wear make up doesn't mean I don't shower, wash my clothes or like to look good, just only on the comfortable presentable type.

It's important to always look your best on Aug 26, 2013 @ 07:29 am

You can see wearing makeup as putting on a mask if you like, and sometimes it is. What makeup is supposed to do is enhance your natural beauty so that you stand out in a crowd. It is supposed to complement your look, make the dress look more impressive. Things like that

The idea is to make you as a woman FEEL incredible.

Taking care of the way you look when you go out shows others that you care of yourself and respect yourself. This goes with clothes, keeping in shape, it's about everything.

It is important to use beauty products that are good for your skin and not products that are just covering up and worsening your problems.Here is an example, L'Oreal's visible lift has a foundation that has a serum with 5 active ingredients in it. Look http://www.skincarehq.org/articles/top-10-best-foundations-for-mature-skin/8-LOreal-Visible-Lift.

Remember, there is nothing more attractive than a woman who is confident and puts in the time and effort to take care of herself.

There's nothing wrong with makeup if it's for the right reasons on Aug 26, 2013 @ 09:30 am

My opinion is that makeup is a personal choice and as long as the reasons for wearing it are "appropriate", then why not?

"Appropriate" might mean to enhance your natural beauty because you enjoy doing it and it makes you feel confident.

It might also be necessary for those who have confidence-crushing issues that makeup can help, like acne or extra pigmentation that turn an otherwise amazing young woman into a trembling fearful person who does not feel comfortable in social situations because she thinks she looks unattractive.

You should never wear makeup solely because it's "expected" or only to impress a man. It should be about your personal choice and what makes you feel beautiful.

I personally don't like it when women spackle it on with a trowel and look so outrageously fake, but again - this would be every woman's personal choice.

Natural beauty is of course always best/ideal, but most of us like a little bit of help now and then :)

JMO!

I agree with amandagreen and mamluv... on Aug 26, 2013 @ 11:22 am

I completely agree with the two above mentioned, it is a personal choice and if done for the right reasons, nothing wrong with it.

Now I can understand that being judged for not having any is a bad thing... it truly is but at the same time, women who do wear make up should not be judged either... if you do not want to wear make up, that's fine and that is your right, I would not judge you as lazy and in return I would expect that you do not judge me because I do wear make up... I am not "obsessed with how I look" nor am I "ashamed of how others will view me" I wear make up because it makes me feel good and I think it is fun.

I don't understand why people can't just live and let live...

You not wearing any make up does not change a single thing in my life and my wearing make up does not change a single thing in yours.... so who cares?

You are right tho... people have to learn to be less judgemental

Looks do matter on Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:30 pm

I hate saying this... but looks do matter. If you go to a job interview, you'll make a better impression if you look better than the other candidates (including makeup!).

I don't think it's right that we do judge on appearance but I think it's unrealistic to assume that it'll ever change.

"Appropriate" occasions sounds right to me. And that really depends on the person. Like I dropped by a friend's place and went grocery shopping today and I didn't wear any make-up at all whereas some people refuse to leave their house without makeup for whatever reason. I don't wear make-up when I go to the gym and workout but I often seen girls putting on makeup BEFORE they workout. I still haven't figured this one out yet. But I will wear makeup if I'm going to work or going on a date.

It might come down to that people should respect your choice to not wear make-up just like you have to respect their choice to wear make-up.
