There’s a lot of reasons why I don’t wear makeup. The one portrayed in the comic might be the strongest one, and maybe also the reason why I’ve never liked dressing up in a costume. Other reason for not liking it is that I don’t think makeup makes anyone look better, just… painted over. I don’t like my face with makeup, even if it’s only a bit of eyeliner, I like my face exactly how it is and I’m proud of it (although, to be fair, hormones have done a bit of their magic there). Also my mother and other close females I’ve known through my life use it very rarely, or not at all. And the same goes for jewelry. I just like it simple and natural.

Fun fact, this is the first script I ever wrote for the comic. I have a ton of scripts done in advance, but I usually choose the one I like the most for the next comic.
