Ok, so the big thing lately, is the awe of women going makeup less ...... Really??? Even going as far as writing a book about it. Lots of women don't wear make up. Every day!! Why is it such a big craze to see women who wear make up every day, take it off to reveal their "true" self? Who cares!! Lots of women show their "true" self everyday. So should we do a craze for those that normally don't wear make up everyday, and show them putting make up on everyday ?? Its better for your skin to NOT wear make up every day. Make up can actually age your skin faster. But if women choose to wear makeup everyday, then good, that's what they like and want to do. And same goes for those that don't want to wear it. One choice is not better then the other. Its all about personal choice. I personally do not like to wear make up everyday. As a SAHM i don't need to look dolled up for my 2yr old. I like to wear it on special occasion, or when i want to doll up for DH or for myself. But there is no wrong in that. Same goes for those that want to put make up on even for just around the house. I just don't get the craze that's starting. We all know people on TV wear make up. Its not some deep dark secret. Just seems weird to me. 

***EDIT*** Ladies, i am not insulting those that want/like to wear make up every day. There is nothing wrong with that. There is a craze where many well known women on TV are bareing it all and going makeup less.

I refuse to sacrifice 30 minutes of precious sleep time in the morning for hair and make up before work. Brush hair. Put in hair tie, wash sleep off face and bruch teeth. Thats it. I do wear make up if im going out some where where i need to look presentable. But nothing too crazy. Eyeliner, mascara, Cheek color (cus im casper white) and lip gloss/lip color. Done. But usually nothing at all. In the summer, its water proof mascara and lip color only. i sweat every thing else off

I don't wear any makeup, really ever. I did wear makeup on my wedding day, that was applied for me. I wouldn't know the first thing about wearing anything that wasn't mascara and/or lipgloss.

I go through phases where I wear makeup all the time and then I wear none at all. I've noticed the beginning of the semester of school, I look great, then by finals it's a ponytail and no makeup lol.

I mean, if i leave the house, i make sure my face is washed, my hair is done neatly. So even if i do go out makeup less, im not going out looking like i just rolled out of bed.

I wear full make up if I'm going out somewhere or to work.  There are times when if I'm running to the store i just put on foundation.  If I am at home cleaning, i don't wear any.  I will go without some other times if I don't feel like putting it on.

I used to wear it every day when I was a teen. Now, I might throw on some eyeliner and mascara twice a week and thats it lol
