When do you wear makeup? When do you not wear makeup?
I rarely ever wear any makeup but today I felt like looking pretty and played with my eyeshadow and mascara. And usually I feel like a clown with makeup on. But I liked the way it looked.
FI and I are going to a backyard bbq with his work friends. I’m planning on wearing jeans with a grey and black top. And black boots (really mellow boots, nothing crazy). FI is wearing a polo with jeans.
Is makeup inappropriate for this occasion? I put on some concealer (I’m breaking out like a 13 year old!), eye shadow (lol, a dummie kit that tells you which color to put where! :] lol) and mascara.

I only leave the house without makeup on the weekends when I’m running quick errands. At the very least, I leave the house with eyeliner and mascara on. Usually though, it its a safe bet that if I am leaving the house, I have a full face of make-up on. So, I don’t think its inappropriate at all. I honestly can’t think of any occasion where I would consider makeup inappropriate.

Makeup isn’t inappropriate for any occasion! As long as you aren’t wearing really crazy club makeup or something, you probably look great!

lol okay, thanks for the reassurance!! I just never wear it.. No one ever taught me how! And when I ask FI how I look he gets this ‘deer in the headlights’ look on his face, lol!

I was never taught either. And probably your FI either doesn’t see a difference with the makeup (guys don’t really notice that stuff) and wonders what you are asking him about lol.

lol, very true! He’s so funny about that stuff. He has an automatic response: Yes honey, you look wonderful.

My mother never wore makeup, and my sisters and I are kind of tomboys. I just recently started wearing makeup (and I’m 30!). I have to wear a suit every day for work, and I just don’t feel put together without makeup on. FI hates that I wear makeup.
Now that I’m getting the hang of it, I feel like I look really nice with it on. I’ll tell you how I learned. Youtube. I highly recommend the Beauty Broadcast videos. I like her because she almost exclusively wears drugstore makeup rather than the expensive stuff. I’ve gotten a ton of good tips from those videos.
My mom and sisters decided I was the family makeup expert, and I ended up doing my sister’s makeup for her wedding.

I hardly ever wear make up. Honestly I try to downplay my femininity at work so that my patients take me more seriously.

I agree with some of the PPs, i can’t think of any occasion where it would be INappropriate to be wearing makup. Even when I played sports, i would still wear mascara. Personal preference maybe. 🙂

I wear it when I feel like playing with colors or when I get bored. 🙂 So yep, I would say that’s totally appropriate!
