I feel like I have to wear it. It's probably more of a habit or "armor".... but I feel like I really, really need it. I look like a ghost/corpse without it. I have really dark circles under my eyes and I need concealer. I am envious of those women who don't have to wear any! A friend of mine doesn't even own any makeup - just lip gloss. But she can get away with it... and it's funny because on the rare occasion where she might do her makeup, she actually looks better without it.
