^ Oooh I would to know the dark under-eye circles too. That's the only thing I hate about my face beside my acne.. which is getting better. But I was born with dark circles and people think I'm tired or something. Foundation doesn't help me.

My mom actually told me something.. I can't remember it this second.. but she said it was 15 bucks or something at wal-mart, but I don't know if it works or not.

^Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat is a liquid concealer/highlighter pen with a brush attached that many swear by for flawless dark circle coverage.

:p You know, I just went camping last week for three days with a bunch of guy friends, and I have to say that it was such a relief to not have to worry about makeup! I actually went to the bathroom to brush my teeth one morning and found three girls crowding around one small mirror trying to apply a full face of makeup... and all of them had little pink fluffy brushes peeking out of their overstuffed makeup bags! I left the bathroom with a smile on my face
I think sometimes I need to get away from makeup altogether and realize that I don't have to use it as a crutch. It enhances something we all have, and it shouldn't conceal who we are.

I admit I feel really self-conscious if I leave the house without a least a bit of concealer on. It's kind of like..you want to present yourself as the best person you can be, and looking well-groomed and pulled-together is a part of that.

I have to say since my skin has gotten better I have become more and more obsessed with makeup. I love chanel, BE, mac and napolean- absolutely top notch!!!

I think Im pretty without makeup- Ihave very defined but delicate features but makeup just makes me feel really confident and I get so many more looks and compliments with it than without. SO obsession live on!!!!

I feel weird because I hardly wear any makeup at all but I am still obsessed with buying it! I literally have 10 lipsticks or lipglosses in my purse at one time. I have so much makeup you'd think I was caking it on my face every morning, but that isn't the case. I just like to have it and try new things...makeup is so pretty!

heh. Seriously i do have a makeup addiction....but my rule for the addiction? As long as it's not too much makeup, it's fine (No european (i wont say french) hookers or cakey peeps on my watch!!) I just love makeup...it gives me a very....complete? feeling.

Lol i understand that. i feel so happy and full after buying makeup, then after 10 minutes i want more.

I've seriously had dreams where I'm at someone's house, and there's floors are COVERED with makeup, in every room, and I scoop as much as I can in my arms and pockets, only to sadly wake up to nothing

I buy it, I wear it, I read about it, I dream about it, I collect it, I stare at it, I drool at it etc....

ALaFramboise: it's okay, dear. I'd probably would've done the same thing thank god there's a thread for this...it's kind of therapeutic to know I'm not alone!

Donīt put yourself down, even because makeup canīt and doesnīt hide all the skins imperfections.
Try to reduce what you use, foundations and concealers ruin your skin- itīs not a myth.
Good points here, thank you Sofialuv I'm actually seeing a derm in a couple of days. But in the past few weeks I have also decided to try and stop being so self conscious, and learn to get out of the house without all the makeup. I really don't know if it's in my head or if others really see me as gross as I feel - but I decided that whatever the case, it's time for me to grow up a bit and train myself not to worry too much about what people think. Most of all, I have to stop associating all my self-worth (is that a word?) with my looks! I can't say I feel any prettier, but I think I've grown some balls when it comes to not looking picture-perfect all the bloody time
