I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup until I was 18 (effectively, when I went away to college), and my mom wore makeup very, very infrequently – for a wedding, funeral, etc. so it was not at all part of my knowledge at all. My best friend growing up in high school wore makeup, so what little exposure I had to it was more from her. I think it helped me be less invested in the aspect of it “covering” up flaws or “enhancing” and let me dive into it because I loved color and playing with it. There was a period where wearing foundation regularly did start making me feel awkward about my bare face, but I got over that quickly and I imagine part of getting past that quickly was because it wasn’t planted in me earlier on.
