  • It should be minimal, natural-looking and in good taste.

  • Adults 18 up- there business don't care--even though personally I never wear make up.

    Children especially those under 116 have NO business wearing it-period.

    16-18--okay, but would prefer that they didn't.

    My opinions--you don't have to like it--you are entitled to your own!

  • I consider modesty over-stated and over-emphasized in the United States. I don't habitually wear any make up at all.

  • Natural looking is always best.

  • I don't care what ADULTS wear on their face although I think its sad when they look like clowns and/or are unrecognizable without their makeup on

    me personally is VERY minimal .... a little coverup and some cute lip gloss. I wear glasses so any eye makeup is completely pointless.

    Daughter is 4 1/2 and wears nothing except for 2x a year for dance recital. Although I consider modesty so important I would pull her from dance if the costume showed belly or other private parts. A little makeup to make her pale face visible with all the harsh stage lights. Dance recital and perhaps prom.... otherwise I wont allow makeup for her as a youth/teen. Maybe some coverup for a bad zit.

  • I don't think anyone needs makeup.
    But I do allow her to play with it, and use it for stage uses.

  • I wear it naturally but enhance what I like the most about myself. I wish I could pull off a red lip but it's not for me. I think you wear what works for you. As for age I wasn't allowed to wear make up until I was 13. Even then it was minimal. Earth colored eye shadows and lip colors.

  • I see no need for modesty, by the definition others put on it. That said, I believe the purpose of cosmetics is to enhance the natural beauty of the wearer not to cover it and should be made out of chemical free and healthy natural ingredients. I believe the person below the cosmetics is the important aspect. If you look at a woman and think "Huh, I like her makeup" she's wearing to much or the wrong stuff... And if it's full of chemicals or other junk that is going to cause her skin damage, she really needs to do some searching as to what's important, her or her looks...

  • "Modesty" as you're referring to isn't a consideration for me... in the states, we're all prudes. I do not wear makeup unless there is an event which calls for it, at that, it is no more than a little cover to even my skin tone, lip gloss, perhaps some mascara. I find makeup to be false advertising. My daughter will have to make up her own mind how she feels about it, once she is a teen and can buy it herself.
