Foot loose and make-up free!

In case you hadn't already noticed, I don't wear any make-up...shock horror! So hears why in case you're wondering. Or even if you're not ;)

I wore it very nearly every day between the ages of about 12 and 17, I had terrible skin, I needed to use it to cover up all the spots and clogged pores I had from all the foundation, I used to spend every break and lunch time constantly re-applying, always paranoid my eye-liner, foundation, mascara etc. had smudged, I was torturing my self with worrying about it so much, it was ridiculous!

A couple of summers ago, during the break, I hadn't really been out anywhere apart from around my family, and I hadn't worn any make-up for about two weeks; my skin was wonderful. I didn't have any great horrid spots or a washed out complexion, just my nice clean, fair skin. I realised I didn't need to wear make-up all the time to look good, I liked looking natural, it suited me more, and it was better for my skin, before it had been a catch 22 situation.

I only wear make-up on very special occasion now, probably two or three times a year! but certainly not everyday, If I'm kind to my skin, my skin will be kind to me, plus I'm eighteen years old, I'm trying to make the most of it!

So that's why, for me personally! What are your opinions on make-up and how much people wear? do you love/hate it? never leave the house without it? I'd really like to know.


  1. If i am not going out any where or just to have a lazy day in with my boyfriend i don't wear any !
    But i couldn't go to college without any :/ I don't know if its a confidence thing or just that i like how i look with make up on.
    Compared to my friends i'm still quite low maintenance as they wear fake tan and eyelashes everyday !!
    I think its great you have the confidence to not wear any :)

  2. good for you to feel confident with your skin now! :) i dont wear makeup either but thats just because im a noob and dont know anything about makeup or how to put anything on :P

  3. I wear mascara every day and quite often I do cat-eye liquid liner or red lipstick.

    But I do feel bad when people think they have to wear it every day, especially LOTS of it, because they don't feel confident without it.

    You look lovely as is so :D

  4. You seriously don't even need to wear makeup. You have gorgeous skin, and you look absolutely stunning without it. I wouldn't have even known that you were makeup-less unless you said something!

  5. you look lovely without it, so why bother! :) . . make-up with me is most definitely not a confidence thing, so I don't think I have a problem (yet!) - but if your skin is better without it. . . then where's the sense in wearing it?!

  6. Hi lovely! Just found your blog! I love this post, you are gorgeous!

    I do wear quite a bit of it, sometimes I wish I didnt have to, but for me it is a confidence thing. Im quite red and blotchy without and it evens out my skin!
    Although I do sometimes wonder, why people wear so much to make themselves look better, but use elaborate skincare routines to make their skin better but still use makeup! Catch 22!!
    Anyway hope you have a nice week :) x

  7. I'm so jealous that you never need to wear make up!
    I always try to give my skin a break about 3 times a week but I feel that when i'm going to work or doing something on my days off I need make up to make me feel better about myself.
    Nice post :)


  8. I will leave the house without make-up sometimes, but I prefer to do so with at least mascara and a bit of lippy.
    You're right to look after your skin now - you'll thank yourself in the future!
    I remember a supermodel being asked her top skincare tips years ago. Her reply - moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!
