I've gone a week without make-up
And not because I have found
That "true beauty's within
Be yourself, Be a star"
I've simply forgot to apply

I've gone a week without make-up
Never looked too much different in truth
I didn't wear greens,
Or yellows and blues
So my face isn't missing a thing

I've gone a week without make-up
No more cakeing gunk on my skin
Don't scratch your eye
And watch what you eat
Or you'll mess up your fake face

I've gone a week without make-up
Haven't got anyone to impress
Broke up with my boy
And I don't got no friends
So there's really no reason why

I've gone a week with out make-up
But what's this? I'm dabbing it on today
Nothing special going on
Just my best friend John
Giving me a reason to dress up again

I love how this poem captures the conflict of make-up. We hate it because it's a nuisance and it's fake, but we think that we need it to look beautiful.
