A chore or fun

Is putting on makeup mostly a chore to you or mostly fun.  A challenge?   Or..how would you describe it? 


For me it's fun and exciting, a bit a of a challenge because I try to do new things every time.  It's part of my "me" time.  I don't wear makeup every day but when I do I get really giddy about it.  It's almost ritualistic lol.

Not really a chore, not really fun, just another necessary thing that I have to do to get ready to go out like brushing my teeth and combing my hair. I see it as another part of daily life.

It is just something that I do every day.  I don't see it as a chore but it is not necessarily fun either unless I am going out or somewhere special.

Nah, I am soo over makeup.  I only wear it now when I get dressed up.  I don't wear it every day.  My make up of choice now is Lorel Mineral foundation, eye shadow, long wearing lip stick and Mabyline's waterproof mascara in brown.  I used to use the black, but now I like a more subtle look.

Same here.  Like I mentioned it's kind of a ritual for me.  I turn on Little Einsteins or SuperWhy for the kids and get them some snacks.  Put my ds in his high chair with his snacks.  Turn on my favorite music.  Get out my beauty mirror and get to work lol. I love it.

It's fun for me. I feel like its art time, lol. It's creative expression using the body's natural features. I guess the challenge can be finding a focus, whether to accentuate eyes or lips, make them bold, natural or dramatic.
