Is Makeup Important?

I don’t normally wear makeup day to day, so I don’t really think about how it looks to the world.  I never wear it to work and I only wear it on weekends if I’m going on a night out or going for a meal etc.  However on Monday, after work, a family friend needed someone to do bridal makeup on for her course so I stepped up.  I took this ‘before’ pic for my own amusement (most unflattering pic of the century!) and then another after to show my boyfriend.  I didn’t think much of it, I know what I look like with makeup on, it was only afterwards when I compared these pictures side my side that I noticed the difference!  Look how much younger, more awake and refreshed I look, it got me thinking should I wear makeup everyday?  Does it look more professional? Does people’s opinion of me change?  Does it make a better impression?  I’d love to know what goes on in peoples heads.  I’d also love to say I had some deep meaningful reason for not wearing it but the truth is, I’m just not a morning person, and getting up any early then I absolutely need to just doesn’t happen.
On a separate note I hadn’t realised how strange it would be to have someone else do your makeup using completely different products and techniques!  It was really relaxing and I have to say she did a really great job, I never normally wear eyeshadow unless it’s crazy, over the top, bright colours for goth/alternative nights, so it was really different to have neutral colours.  I think it looks really nice but I don’t think I’d even know where to start!
I would love to know your opinions, how much of a difference do you think it makes wearing make up?  Can you face the world makeup-less, or do you like o have the perfect face?
