So I will admit - I do look slightly different with and without makeup. I'm not completely unrecognizable, but I contour my eyes a LOT (every day!!), and as a result, yes, I do look pretty different. I'm trying to tone down my makeup and go for a more natural look (just to save time too), but I feel like I often times hide behind it I want to ENHANCE my face, not completely change it! Although that's what I end up doing a lot..some guy friends who I have known for a while and have become accustomed to my face say I look "fine" when I'm not wearing any, but other guy friends are shocked sometimes to see me without any...saying I look "tired" and whatnot :/
I'm a college student and it takes me about 30 minutes to do my makeup in the mornings. I want to cut it down to 20 or less. The eyes are most important to me. I really do transform them a lot, they look MUCH bigger than they actually are. Brown shadow does WONDERS.
I keep reading things like "guys don't like it when you wear too much makeup" blah de blah..not saying I should do things for guys, but I am self-conscious myself sometimes about wearing too little! I'm not talking about nights out - hell I love dolling myself up! But for, let's say, class. I don't think I have much natural beauty at all, and without my routine I feel naked
I know visually it would be better to show what "too much makeup" is...but does anyone have any thoughts on this? Pics, maybe? I am not a girl who can get away with just mascara, blush, and a little lipgloss!
