well, makeup isn't supposed to cover your face, it's supposed to enhance your natural beauty. i wear makeup sometimes, does that make me 'fake'? no, it just enhances any natural beauty that i may or may not have.
it doesn't turn you into a different person. some people may pretend to be somone they're not, but that has nothing to do with makeup. that is just that person's fucked up personality. i'm always me, with or without makeup. i'm still the same angry little bitch.
just so you know, women have been wearing makeup well before 1900. dating back to the ancient Egyptians, ancient Chinese, every ancient culture. Sure, it wasn't all nicely packaged with a L'Oreal sticker on it, but they crushed up certain colorful plants, mixed different things together and got some kind of makeup. women have been wearing makeup for centuries. i don't think there is anything wrong with making yourself even more beautiful.
