Why wear it then?

I love love LOVE my make up. YOu have no idea but I have quite a few friends who look at make up and complain cause they want to "look natural". I don't understand this. Like I understand not wanting to look fake but isn't the point of make up to cover up your naturalness? Like if you want to look natural then why wear it? I don't wear it cause I want to look natural I wear cause I don't like my naturalness. So why? Why do it if you want to look like you do without it?

  • I like to make myself look better without looking like I'm trying, unless I am going out or something. Even out my skin tone, thicken lashes. Still looks "natural" but a slightly more polished natural

  • they mean they want to cover their flaws without it looking like they have flaws to cover. i personally don't wear any makeup cause i love how i look w/o it but some women like to just cover up tiny imperfections and that's what they mean by natural

  • I always thought the point of makeup was to enhance your features. I think many women prefer not to look overly done. I wear makeup but the colors I use match my skin tones in each area but are a shade darker, personally I prefer not to have heavy makeup, I think it looks funny.

    If I dont wear it I have blotchy skin, I like to cover that and even out my skin tones. I still look very natural I am just hiding some of the aged look in my face.

  • a "natural" look with make up, typically means a look that just enhances or conceals features on their face without making them look lik ethey are going out for a night on the town. (aka, the day look vs the night look)

    They want to LOOK like they don't have certain flaws while showing off a few good features without it looking like they are wearing make up.

    Basically it's like photoshopping a picture.. you want it to look natural, but want a few changes done to it.

  • Example:

    I have naturally light brown hair.. however typically I color it to a dark brown. My lashes are a little lighter than I like, making them look shorter than they really are. A little mascara and a lash curler and poof, I look like I have naturally long sexy lashes

  • I believe in looking natural. However, I use a little concealer under my eyes to get rid of the baggies, on my chin to remove the blue vein and under my nose to remove the redness. I enhance my eyes with a little liner, and mascara.
    The point is to Highlight the natural beauty of your face and to hide the stuff that is not so pretty. KWIM?
