I wear make-up and heels on a daily basis, but I don't expect anyone else to - my 'fussy feminine sh*t', as it has been referred to, is a product of supreme insecurity and constantly being told how I have to look/act. I agree that beauty comes from within (although it makes me extremely unattractive, lol) and I think that the most beautiful person is someone who is comfortable with themselves, whether that's in a 'make-up, skirts, heels' way or a 'tracksuit, comfy' way.
Just adding my copper to the sum :)
Ask me mistakes I have made
Ask me whether what I have done is my life
Others have come, in their slow way -
And some have come to help, or to hurt -
Ask me what difference
Their strongest love or hate has made.
I dont own smart clothes but find looking tidy always gives a good impression.
I always were jeans or combats and tshirts/rugby shirts/loose fitting shirts, even to work.
My psych usually puts in letters that I was smartly dressed, even though the clothes I listed above arent what I would class as smart, so its possible to look it without actually wearing sterotypical smart clothes, if that makes any sense?
Like my nurse used to comment I was always smartly dressed which I took to mean my clothes were clean, looked liked theyd been ironed (I dont iron anything), id washed and washed my hair and things...
Might not be everyones idea of smart but thats what it means to me.
I dont really like wearing make up, makes me feel uncomfortable, I have to admit when people comment on my lack of make it makes me feel self concious enough to start wearing it again, untill i get bored
I think its what ever makes you happy, if your happy wearing comfortable clothes then thats a good thing. im kinda the same i would rather wear something practical and warm rather than fashionable. Its whatever makes you happy. i once wore a party dress with a pair of uggs lol. xxx

I like to make sure I don't look like people would stare at me, but I do get shy, But I work in a shop so have to look presentable. Though sometimes I cannot be bothered(today for example I never even brushed my hair when I went out)
I don't think it's important to look or even be beautiful. I know I like to make myself look nice if I'm feeling a bit glum or if I'm going out somewhere nice. It's not for other people, it's for myself.
I don't wear make up... Well I wear lipstick and lip gloss but that's it. No foundation, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, nothing. I don't feel the need to, I used to when I was younger and now I look back I think "Urgh I looked awful with make up!" not because the make up was badly done, just because I personally think I look like a transvestite with it and look better without.
The media are always trying to put their distorted image of beauty across to the public and really it's just someone who is really good at Photoshop and a normal person being faffed and played with on there to look "beautiful".
Looking good is a better term I think, if you feel good with the way you look then you look it in my mind. :)
