How do you look without make up - be brutally honest. I look positively ill & like another person RO

It's mostly down to the dark eye circles which there is nothing I can do about. With concealer I look normal again & it brings my face out from looking "hollow" and sick & all the other features shine again.

I hate it when people criticise those that wear makeup everyday - some people have no choice, we actually look terrible & it makes us sad & leaves us feeling insecure in public.
