Default Life without a birthmark

Over the past 3 decades I've had many treatments to remove my port wine stain on my right cheek. The last several treatments have almost completely removed the birthmark and with very little makeup it is unnoticeable.

I feel so confident now - especially when meeting new people. I'm happily married but I sometimes I feel I need to makeup for the countless times where I shied away from beautiful women. I'm not accustomed to being looked upon as a handsome.
I'm a whole new person now it seems.
Has anyone else experienced this?
