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

I leave my house everyday without makeup.
I never got very into wearing any makeup, my sisters were a bit older than me, and it seemed a bit of a waste of time. I never wanted to be one of those girls with bad makeup in middle school, so I avoided it. I still sometimes wore it for special occasions, or would use a spot here or there for red spot, but I never really learned the right way to apply makeup.
More recently, I decided since I have no good makeup, I shouldn't really even try to apply it. I decided once I have some money in the bank, I can take my friend Regina with me to pick some out.
Not having makeup has allowed me to be confident in my own skin. I've had people tell me, I'm beautiful, and it felt really good that they saw me entirely and not just gussied up and still felt that way. I've even had a girl tell me she thought I had makeup on a few times! Guys I've talked to have also told me they don't like makeup, and prefer it to be natural looking.
I hope all the girls out there know, they don't have to wear makeup to be beautiful. It's not the makeup that makes you pretty, it might make you feel a bit more confident, but you are still beautiful without it.
