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.
