With/Without

With Makeup (and an earbud trying to feel up my boob)

Without makeup, and no frisky electronics. Also several hours later, so forgive the sleepy face.

I think this is brought on by a certain rage comic:

Through my eyes, I see every flaw, every blemish, every acne scar and every little wrinkle line beginning to form. I see every reason to wear makeup and cover it up. It makes me feel better, and more confident. But I sometimes wonder how other people would see me. Would they notice any difference at all? Or would they be taken aback by my makeup-less monster face? Because I always feel like they'd go the second way, and shun me for being so horrifyingly ugly.
I'm not saying that I am ugly without makeup. But considering I'd probably start crying if I realized that I forgot to put on my makeup before going out for the day.. it makes me wonder.

I don't have the WORST acne in the world--- but is what I would call mild...
I'm embarrassed- so without makeup is not an option- however! I do not believe on "putting on a face." I hate when women cover their entire face and glob and glop on everything.
You are gorgeous- don't forget it.

I, too, think the same thing. But based on your photos up there - you are absolutely beautiful without the make up!

You are beautiful!

I don't wear makeup unless it's a fancy occasion or I feel like playing dress up. Yes, I call it dress up in my head. I probably need makeup, but I just can't be bothered. (Although I just like wearing lipstick for fun so I wear that more often.)

I have worn makeup hardly at all since being in Cambodia. I'm used to it now,but it's still so nice to put it on when we're in a big city. It really does make you feel beautiful.

You are beautiful! I always wear makeup, but I'm definitely lessening the amounts when it's not a special occasion. I just love eyeshadows and eyeliners and blush and lipstick.

Omg! That last picture really made me laugh!!

Chica, you are soo gorgeous!! But I think we all care about how we look and we always want to try and look Ok no matter what. I think it's our nature to want to feel secure? I love wearing makeup, but i only wear it on special ocasions!
