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 had a boy in the 8th grade dump me because he thought kissing me was like kissing wet drywall! Lol that's a direct quote too! I was scared straight after that, he had a point... and I had a revelation. I don't wear it unless I have a reason now, and even then, its minimal. Ill need my skin in shape when I'm 85, why gunk it up if you don't have too.

I stay at home with my kids, and I wear make up every day. Even if it's just a little BB cream and mascara. I like the way I look with makeup, and I know a lot of women who don't wear any at all. I really couldn't care less what anyone else thought, though.

Me too. My husband actually tells me not to, he doesn't like make up. He says this but he doesn't complain when i wear it either lol Unless I want to kiss him when I have a tinted gloss on lol 


Quoting alexsmomaubrys2:

I'd be extremely hurt if my husband told me I needed to wear make up.

Quoting babyblue415:

Why?  i'm a sahm and hubby thinks i should wear make up, i think i look way better with make up but i just dont see the point. my hubby wold only see it like two hours a day anyway , its not like i'm meeting other people. maybe you could motivate me to do it more often? ! thanks

Quoting PinkyPan:

Quoting AdensMommy1107:

I wear foundation, mascara, and just recently started wearing lip gloss. Everyone says i just look "natural". I don't really know how to put extravagant makeup on so it's usually just those 3 things

I have tried and tried lip gloss, i cant get over the sticky and gooey on my lips.

So would I. It's a pretty offensive thing to say.

 I wear it everyday. I dont go bonkers or anything with it, but I dont leave the house without it unless I am going to workout.

I only wear makeup if its a special occasion or I know my picture is getting taken.
Hubs doesn't like makeup or perfume so he's glad that I normally doesn't wear it.

I work a professional job and wear makeup everyday.  I also get ready on weekends.  I prefer to look put together.  I don't care what you do.
