Re: Are you able to leave your house without makeup?

I'm 20 years old and have never really worn makeup by choice. The only time I think I had any makeup on was my prom in 11th grade because my mom basically made me but I hated it. I was always a little behind in fashion and everything growing up hah I basically still am. But my point is all my friends and such were wearing make-up before I even thought about it. This was probably around the start of middle school. I always remember my prettiest friends would think they looked so ugly even if they didn't have on a much make-up as usual but really they looked great! That is when I decided I would never wear make-up.
I know some people really enjoy make-up as well but as for me I am also lazy and would much rather sleep in instead of getting up to do make-up and would just rather spend my money on something else. Also by this point I feel more me without it. Like I was just looking at my prom pictures and thought I looked odd.
It really does just bring down people's self confidences. I wish people could just see natural beauty instead of a bunch of fake **bleep**. People would be more accepting of their own problems if they went out and could see that many other people have the exact same problems. Though since I have choosen not to wear make-up I am the rarity in society at my age and I still do have a really low self esteem and self confidence etc. Would I feel prettier with make-up on probably but who knows because I'm not going too.
