I feel like a fake when I wear makeup...?

I like looking pretty, everyone does, but I just don't feel "me" when I wear it. I have a lot of friends (the majority) that don't wear/have never worn makeup, and I end up feeling like I'm trying to be better than them when I wear it. I feel pretty plain without makeup, but when I wear eyeliner (the only thing I pretty much need, at this point) I feel more like the people I'm trying so hard not to turn into. A few of my friends went popular and makeup-y this year and have acted mean and hateful to me and the rest of their former friends ever since... I don't want my current friends to even think for a second that I'd leave them for that crowd. I still want to feel my best and possibly get a boyfriend, so... what do you think? Am I blowing this way out of proportion? I just feel... different... when I wear it, and I'm not sure if I like that kind of different or not.



Lol at the picture :) that's me. i WOULD like a change, so i'm not really looking for any of the "be comfortable without makeup" kind of answer....

many many many people wear makeup and aren't trying to out do their friends or make others look bad. but also you can wear makeup to enhance or stand out. i like the more natural appearance.



but as long as you don't look like Mi Mi off the drew carey show you're fine lol

ask yourself, why do you wanna wear makeup? is it because you wanna be more attractive to guys? thats normal since most girls do at least some or else they wouldnt even get up and fix their hair a little bit. to wear make up is just like fixing your hair-its just something you do if you want to look more attractive. but i know how it feels like its not you people are looking at. thats good you dont want to be fake. its good to do what you want to do even if your friends dont understand. but do it for you-if you dont feel comfortable, then dont. if you feel pretty with it on, wear it. if you want both you gotta decide. what do you want more? also, you could just wear it on special occasions or until you feel more comfortable with it.

I dont think they'd think that. As long as your truthful to them and let them know, (basically without telling them) that you'll be there for them, like still hanging around them.



Everyone gets to that stage in life when they wanna explore different styles and things, (Hair do's , makeup , clothes, etc) and i think its okay for change.



Just dont wear much, your skin is beautiful (:

I usually wear eyeliner and mascara daily if i wear any at all.



And just because they chose to wear makeup and be mean to you girls doesn't mean wearing makeup is bad...they just made it look that way.



Yeah i know what you mean about wanting to wear makeup, i have started wearing a little here and there and my friends have as well. Not much but some.



Anyways, just do whatever makes you feel great about yourself(: If you like makeup, wear it girl! I think your friends will still be there just because you want to change a little....besides, its a new year...(:

I don't think you'd be showing off, and if your friends were good friends, they wouldn't think that either.



It's good to experiment! Everyone needs a change once in a while or else you'd just look the same ALL the time and that's boring. Change is a part of life!



Although, you don't need makeup, some people do and I think you are lucky enough that you don't need it. I, for example, need it because then I just look like a little kid, which I am I guess. A little eyeliner/mascara and blush can go a long way.



Just be yourself! If you don't want to wear makeup, don't wear makeup! Although it seems this way, people, women mostly I guess, don't NEED makeup. It's just there to cover up the things we don't like about ourselves and sometimes make them prettier so I can see why you'd feel like a fake but a little bit just to emphasize your beauty not hide it, can't hurt.

if you want to wear makeup then go ahead and wear it if you dont feel like its you then dont,dont worry about your friends they will all start wearing it eventually trust me if you dont want to wear to much make up and go natural i suggest that you should just put on a slick of clear lipgloss & some mascara there the basics for looking good without looking like your trying to hard!& also have your eyebrows perfectly groomed as this shapes the face:) hopw ive helped.
