  • I used to be like that, when I was younger. Now that I have reached my 40's I wear it all the time. Even though you don't wear makeup now, you still need to be using a good moisturizer with SPF.

  • Your're not alone. I'm in my fifties and I wear lipstick sometimes and blush, but not often. I'm too busy with family and life.

  • i cant stand makeup. only time i ever wear it is on special occations... but those only come a couple times a year... if that...
    i dont believe in societies standards of beauty. makeup (most of it anyway) isnt good for your skin and makes u age quicker... and i dont believe you have to wear makeup to be beautiful like society makes people believe...
    i think natural beauty is FAR better than anykind of "beauty" from makeup...

  • well foundation you have to have the right kind to feel clean and very light which is the mineral makeup but if my face is very clear that day i just throw on some mascara and eyeshadow i hate eye liner only because i think it makes some girls look trashy instead of extending the beauty but thats my opinion

  • I don't own any make up, I never wear it. The last time I wore any was for my wedding 10 years ago.

  • I haven't worn makeup since my wedding last September. I usually only drag it out for weddings and other special events.

  • Well I don't think you're alone, but to the PP, I think it's an absurd blanket statement to put a generalization on women who do wear makeup. I love make up. I don't wear it every day, but I wear it several times a week. And I love it, I FEEL prettier with it on. I don't have to wear it to impress you or Joe Blow, I do it because it makes ME feel nice.

  • No you are not alone. I'm a mom with two kids, working and trying to keep up with life. I keep my hair shorter now and no make up. If I have my choice between extra 10mins of sleep and make up, well I stay in bed!
