I think make-up is too overused nowadays by women. I personally rarely put make-up on. Given, I'm still young and probably don't need it yet, I think it's better to show the world the real you. I hate all the time people spend on putting on their make-up and preparing themselves to face the world everyday.
I too, grew up in a household of mostly women who spends at least an hour every morning getting their makeup on and hair done. I think it's a waste of time. I don't think I should have to make myself up to be considered attractive. People should like me the way I am and if they don't, it's their loss since I've already found my perfect guy who does love me for who I am - with or without makeup.
I do put makeup on when it's a special event (party, wedding, etc.) but even then, it's very mimimal and very natural, just enough to highlight what I do have.
Personally, I think makeup should only be used on special occasions since it's not really good for our skin anyways. People should be confident enough to not wear makeup! Anyways, that's my two cents.
