Do you get dressed/put make up on everyday?

I don't have a car during the day, no expected company, a 7 week old and a 3 year old. I think it's a waste of laundry and makeup in my situation. I pass mirrors and just think ugh i look like trash!

  • Yes to getting dressed. Sometimes with makeup (not if I'm going to the gym).

  • Yes, I have to go to work. But Saturdays are our pj days. We keep it low key and wear pjs until we go out or go to bed again.

  • I am up at 5 am M-F & showered, dressed & make up on for work. On weekends, those are my errands days, so still showered, dressed & make up on those days too. There are rare days that I have the luxury of not going any where & will skip the make up & just be in the comfy clothes I wear around the house.

  • Well I get dressed and do my hair everyday, but not always make up. I do have my bumming it days though.

  • I get dressed. If I'm sick I force myself too. I'm not much of a makeup person.

  • Yes, Im up and dressed, with hair done and make up pretty much every day. But I have to work full time, and Im on call a lot... When I was younger with little ones at home... then I was more like you. They didn't care what I looked like!! So except for the times I was going to school, or working, I stayed comfy at home with my kiddos.

  • No and no. If I am staying at home I just throw on some house cloths. I haven't wore make up in like 20 some years. Do not even own any make up. I do wear jewlery and perfume. But not at home.
