Real women explain why they don't wear makeup

For some women, putting on makeup is like putting on clothing — second nature. On the other hand, a lot of ladies choose to forgo the morning makeup ritual, whether it's because they lack application skills, they desire to cash in on an extra hour of precious sleep, or because they want to take a stand against modern beauty standards.
