Just and ID. :D It is edited (as you can see, lol) and I dont have make up like this everyday, actually I usually don't have any makeup because I find it boring to do. And I rather think it is just a beauty mask we can show to other people, a way of expression, not authentic ourselves...

Don't like makeup and you definitely don't need it :)

Beautiful!!! well, one can use make up to enhance their attributes, not everybody knows how to use it properly, so I guess using it shows as well how artist or less artistic we are with it, it doesn't have to be like a fake person, but like an enhanced person, as long as you don't use it as a mask... an authentic person can be authentic with or without make up because being authentic is a quality of the mind and not of the physical aspect! :D, the challenge is to be as self-confidence with and without it! if you are then you will always look authentic no matter how many layers of make-up you have on!:D

Of course you are right it is a not physical aspect, but I didn't say that it is. I meant that when we cover a part of face it's not natural, as we are made, it's a little faked (intended to beautify, but still not natural), just it. But also it is worth noting that if a person is with makeup like... always it can say that probably she (or he? :D) doesn't like herself enough to show themselves without it. Thus it's obviously not bad to have a makeup (especially on occasions, I would say that's even appropriate because it makes the moment special, e.g. on date a partner can feel nice, that a girl dolls up for him) it makes views in life more interesting, prettier. I like it that people use it in their own various ways and I for sure couldn't criticize somebody least because it's their life not mine. :D But I - and it's only my subjective opinion - wouldn't feel good having it every day. And tbh I don't even feel completely well when I have it sometimes because I feel like "ahhh, It's not my real face" (especially because I like kinda expressive makeup because then it's like art, isn't it :P) and when I'm removing it I think "Hm, I should look like before without putting cosmetics" XD Maybe it's just because I'm not accustomed to or because of my eccentricity. :D

Yes, you're right, it's good to wear it occassionally, and for certain occassions, putting every morning the same amount of make-up at 8 am to go to class like you would do to go clubbing is totally worrying (I've seen people like that, there was one in my german class, very peroxid blonde, with like a thick layer of make up, then like blue-black metallic colour lipstic, and big eye make-up, I'll always remember her, even though I never crossed a word with her... lol, she definitely would probably be noone without make up) and in her case would really be like using make-up as a part of herself... a very important part,... Most shockingly I've read in one of those magazines somone was holding on the bus "my husband has never ever seen me without make-up" and apparently it was something to be proud of!! I was curious to read how was her day to day life like that, must have been close to a nightmare, never going to the swimming pool together, never bathing together, never going to a spa together or things like that.. and waking up earlier than your husband every morning just so you can cover your face... horrible. And yes, that's sick, to take it to that extreme. In my case I use make up to hide my teenager and not so teenager skin, as I still have some pimples here and there, blemishes... yes...nothing I can do about them to be honest, once I win the lottery I'll try that of burning the top layer of skin so hopefully my cells regenerate into beautiful new skin, and be my natural beautiful skin, in the meantime, if I want to feel like the rest of pretty women out there with super soft beautiful skin, I only have make up as a choice to level up with them. Since I'm married now and don't need to compete with anyone, I don't care so much about putting make up on so often or so regularly, but only did it to go out really, or something discreet to go to class or to meet friends for coffee, like only the eye kohl eye line and well the spots covered, so it wasn't the first thing people noticed of my face, my pimples! I'd rather have people thinking "she's wearing make-up, than have people thinking "ohh poor girl, her skin looks aweful" :D. But that was when I was younger, now I can't be bothered that much, my skin is part of my self, and well, I guess I'm scarred for life, until I win the millions, luckily my husband likes me without make up too, so not too bad! but I don't feel like covering, rather I do it sometimes to avoid people the horrible view of my more than imperfect skin. :D. But yes, I know the feeling of getting read of the make up and think... "without it I just suck" but I don't do that anymore, lately I see myself better without than with it!:D. But yes, my mum spent all her life without wearing make up, she feels a bit like a fake when she puts some on to go weddings and things like that, she's just not used to it at all!:D
