I've always wondered, do girls actually wear it because it makes us feel prettier, or because it makes us think others think we're prettier?
I don't wear make up that often, mostly because I'm lazy. I also don't prioritise taking the time in the morning, because I'd rather eat a slow breakfast (and not get up as early). But sometimes I like make up, it gives me a sense of self confidence that I don't have without it. But I don't really know for sure if it's because I think I'm prettier or if it's because I think others will think I am. So once again, are we really doing this - putting all that money and time and effort into make up - because we ourselves want it, or because we think others and the society/the media does?
