With makeup you just hide your true image and deceive other people.
I would recommend you to focus your thoughts on something else and stop over caring about what other people think about you.

#2 Fats- monounsaturated should dominate(olives), followed by polyunsaturated plant sources(nuts) but not if you have acne. the health benefits of fish oil and fish are controversial and i dont consume them due to mercury contamination and immune supression avoid processed fats if possible.
#3 Protein/amino acids- dairy and eggs best sources for tryptophan and methionine which convert to powerful antioxidants melatonin and glutathione.
#4 Carotenoids- alpha- beta carotene, beta cryptoxanthin, lutein zeaxanthin, astaxanthin. these are vital to human nutrition, carrots, butternut squash, pumpkin, chili pepper and cayenne pepper are the best sources.
#5 Regularity-BM at least once a day, Moist, large stools, 1 piece ideal, no maldigestion, no floating stools indicative of maldigested fat. HOW- insoluble fiber- wheat and cooked vegetables. soluble fiber-oats/ good bacteria ferment soluble fiber making short chain fatty acids that inhibit pathogens.
#6 Circadian cycles-Light, get up with the sun, and expose your entire body to it. darkness-melatonin is released upon the sensing of absolute darkness. sleep in a pitch black room, try to ensure 10 hours total darkness, wear sunglasses before bed. do not eat too late at night.
#7 Desirable physiological states(positive moods/emotions) do precisely what you like and what feels good to you, but not regardless of consequences, just from a perspective that, you own your life, and can determine precisely what you do with it and need not answer or ask of permission from anyone,achieving maximum autonomy and self government.

So like someone else suggested, maybe use concealer and some powder?
And then a week after that, eliminate the powder. And then if you want to go fully make-up free, then stop using the concealer the week after.
Make yourself feel feminine or attractive without the makeup by wearing your hair really nicely or some lovely earrings. Emphasise the parts of your appearance that you really like.
I'm sure that people will hardly notice that you're not wearing make up...without sounding rude, most people are too involved in what THEY look like!
I went through a period of not using any makeup and just instead chose to draw attention to my eyes by wearing mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow which made me feel like I still looked good without clogging up my skin.
Unfortunately at the moment, I'm wearing concealer and powder because my skin is so bad with PIH/skin tone at the moment but I'm hoping to reduce to just concealer in the next few weeks.
I hope that you manage to go without makeup and feel confident in doing so.

I really want to stop wearing make up as I hate the feeling of it on my face, and i want to be more natural. Also I feel like foundation is making my skin worse. But I'm really insecure and haven't got much confidence, make up is the only thing that makes me feel better, can any one help?
Your decission is right.Wearing makeup is not the option to look good.I would suggest you to take good care of your skin.A glowy skin is more impressive.You need not to put make up if you have a healthy and glowy skin.Thats more than enough.
