    i agree. who cares about make up in relation to society and such. i wear it when i go out somewhere and i go for the 'natural look'. i try to enhance my features rather than change the way they look completely, some people take it off and they look so different. when they wear a lot of dark eye liner or eye shadow or the wrong colour of make up and their whole skin tone looks different after they wash it off. it's hard not to... stare um. yeah i like it, but not if it's caked on. or when you can see a line on the jaw because it's orange and not rubbed in properly etc - err, great look. *cough* no seriously. wear and do whatever you want, but jebus... do it properly

    I am a housewife, so I don't have to look any particular way most of the time. I don't like the way make-up feels on my skin, so I normally don't wear it. When I do, I try to use natural, neutral colors that enhance without drawing attention to the make-up itself.

    It's not that I don't think that I need enhancement or that I'm perfect as I am, it's just that I can't be bothered. My husband is not a make-up fan, and he's really the only person besides myself that I feel compelled to please most days and I am pleased not to have gunk on my face.

    I agree that in certain settings that it's not optional. When I go to my kids' IEP meetings, etc I normally wear make-up because it is not confidence inspiring to be the ugly betty in the room.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I should add that I think I need to be surrounded by people who really do care about how they look.. I doubt I would ever give a second thought to myself if I wasn't reminded by others that do think about things like that for me.

    Aww, poor you!

    Trying to "slyly" slip in some bragging, I see.



    Boasting...not a pretty colour on you. Kinda tacky.

    but you're welcome for the attention

    I do care about how I look. I use mineral makeup exclusively, it has natural UV properties. Mascara, some eye and cheek color and lip gloss. Very minimal most days. I don't need a great deal because I am pretty fastidious about my skin and skin care products. I could probably go totally without makeup but I'm not going to do that.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I tried mineral make up and it made my skin burn and itch. A real disappointment.
