"Not the best photo quality but... I have trichotillomania, a hair-loss disorder that causes the urge to pull out my hair. I have no brows whatsoever, and last year I was shaving my head but also had a wig I occasionally wore. I did this photo to sort of defy beauty standards, and show the different 'sides' of me. I still have fun with the rest of my makeup, but I've stopped drawing my eyebrows on altogether and embrace the bald face! :)" – gessiep

"This may also be after a haircut and beard trim, but a beard is really just natural contour, right?" – donjawn

"I have severe rosacea and allergic shiners as a consequence of a genetic disorder and some days all the makeup in the world won't cover my skin up entirely, but I love makeup!" – jacquelinelaurenh

"Being a natural redhead, my brows and lashes are practically bleach blonde and my skin has a red undertone. I love playing with my makeup and seeing how I can accentuate my features!" – Adeka12

"It's amazing what working at a makeup store and loving Halloween will do for your makeup skills. If you think you can't do it or aren't good at makeup, just practice at it. Trust me, real changes happen. The first makeup picture and the second one are only six months apart." – carlyl12

"I'm not artistic at all but, with a lot of practice have gotten pretty good at doing makeup. It's so relaxing and a great way to focus on me, but I love sleeping in and am confident in my bare face, too!" – chelseac48071f7cc
