Things Only Women Who Don't Wear Makeup Will Understand

Women who do not wear makeup very often, or very much, have their own set of struggles and perks. It is always an individual's own choice regarding one's looks and the cosmetics she wants to use (or not) for makeup. But, whatsoever, girls are just pretty either ways.
In the melee of girls who look immensely pretty with all their makeup, and are in the process of curating hacks and tricks of their own, there exist a small and rare species of women who do not wear makeup! Here is a brief interaction between the two that lists out the sorrows and joys experienced by them.
Makeup: "You look pretty in makeup. Why don't you wear it daily?"
No-Makeup: " 'cause then what will be the difference. I will look pretty much the same everyday! No change, no variety!"
Makeup: "Check this new mahogany lipstick I bought today!"
No-Makeup: "But you already had this color?"
Makeup: "That's wine color, dear."
Makeup: "I can't be there in 10 minutes, I'm not ready."
No-Makeup: "That you won't be, even after an hour."
Makeup: "You have got a nice jawline. Why don't you try contouring to highlight it more?"
No-Makeup: "Ummm... Contu.. What?"
Makeup: "Why don't you put #NO-MAKEUP SELFIE on Instagram?"
No-Makeup: " 'cause there is no difference in any of my with or without-makeup selfie! I'm almost the same anyway; gorgeous!"
Makeup: "I got these 2 fantastically awesome shades of Orly and Chanel at 700 bucks! Isn't that a great deal?"
No-Makeup: "Wow, that could buy me 4 pizzas, 1 coke, 2 flip-flops and a couple of movie tickets"
Apart from these, here are some regular boons you come across...

- Buy a lot more time to sleep before getting up, as compared to other girls.

And some problems too...

- You are conveniently labeled as not being so 'girly'.
