You feeling me, ladies?

P.S. Nobody cares if you don't/rarely wear makeup. Good for you. Typical comment: "I only use 100% organic, natural beeswax on my lips to protect from wind burn and chapping. I collect the wax from the bee colony on my farm and sell it on Etsy. I squeeze some ripe berries and rub the juice on my cheeks for a nice, natural-looking flush and I'm good to go! I don't need makeup to feel good about myself! I have nothing to hide!"

Edit: Sheesh, people. My two cents on the makeup debate on Reddit and other sites: [link] Also, she's frowning because she's being insulted. Duh.

Wow. There's always a group of people putting others down. Geeze guys.:/ some people are super thin because the pressure they feel from society and some are just built to be skinny. Some people are just built bigger too. And who gives a shit what men want?! Be what you want whatever that is. Stop putting other people down! You guys are ridiculous.

While I personally don't usually wear any makeup (except for special events) I respect those who do. It honestly depends on the person; some are more suited for makeup, some are not. The point is, I don't it matters. You can have your preferences, but you shouldn't think any less of those that go against them. 
To some, makeup lets them express their creativity, and makes them feel confident.
To some, makeup feels fake and awkward; they feel like they can't do anything without ruining it, and that its constricting.
I think its okay to do what you want, as long as YOU are comfortable with it, and you are not being pressured into anything.

people just think everybody could and SHOULD (?) comment on what women do/wear/say/...

If somebody is thin, they say they should gain weight.
if they are 'fat' they should lose weight.

You act as if it's a fine line.
Men don't actually like ultra thin women, anyway. Evolutionarily, it's unattractive. 
Thin women don't produce babies, and the lineage does not continue.

I don't believe I said anything about that men like/want thin women.
I know that a lot of men don't want the uberthin women,

But sadly the media will always say that something else is better then what you have.
it's very sad that this even exist

I'm loving that eyebrow and sour look on her face without makeup. It looks so badass! Screw being "pretty" or sexy!

I don't wear make up AHAHAHAHA I TOLD YOU ANYWAY


but seriously, when I was like, 11 or something? IDK, when I was at that age where I wanted to be MORE LIKE MOM, I wanted to wear some makeup, and she said,

"No, you don't, trust me. Makeup is a slavedriver. Once you start wearing it, if you oversleep or for any reason just don't wear makeup for one day, every one you run into will go 'well what happened to you!?' the longer you can stay off of the GOD AWFUL MAKEUP, the better."


However, I do get the opposite problem. Let's say on one particular day I just feel like changing it up a little--so I wear nice, blended eyeshadow or some shit I learned how to do on youtube, people will go WOW HOW PRETTY!!! I know that doesn't sound like it would be obnoxious, but it is. I'd rather that no one ever notice what I look like.
