There are so many posts about make-up and beauty on the bee. I get it, it’s mostly women. However, does anyone not wear make-up or engage in these beauty activities? I think I may just be the odd one out.
I hate the spa. I don’t want to get my nails done or have anyone picking at my face. I don’t find it relaxing. It’s overpriced and annoying. I also don’t wear make-up pretty much ever. No mascara or skin coating or anything…well, except chapstick.
Am I alone?! Lol.

@MrsPanda99: I’m not a big makeup wearer either. I usually just can’t be bothered. 😛

I used to think that chap stick and a bit of mascara counted as make up… but now I need a few dabs of under eye concealer and some powder to even things out. Then I added in some eye shadow (light, natural, not overdone) and a second coat of mascara to make my eyes look like they’re open and alert!
I don’t wear a lot of make up and I am certainly able to leave the house without any at all, but for my day-to-day look, I feel more… finished?… I don’t know if that’s the word.

@MrsPanda99: Heh, I’m with you sister! The only thing I tend to wear (unless it’s a special occasion) is blush, just because I look like death not even warmed over if I don’t cause I’m so pale. Other than that, nada.
I just hate the feeling of stuff on my face, and I can’t stand not being able to rub my eye if it itches! I have extremely sensitive eyes, so nothing goes near the eye area except sunscreen.
I feel the same way about spas and similar things: paying people to touch my face is not a fun way to spend my afternoon.

I wear no make-up, none. I never have. My mother passed away before I was old enough to be taught to put it on, so I never learned. I never feel the need and I just use Chapstick also!

@MrsPanda99: I wear it for nights out or special occasions, but I’m way too lazy to wear it on a daily basis. And I’m utterly clueless about it.

@DaisyBelle: That is a huge part of it for me – I am not used to wearing make-up and I have allergies. I often rub my eyes and then I end up looking like a circus freak! I am really worried about my wedding day. I will have to tie my hands up so I don’t ruin my face.

@MrsPanda99: For everyday life (outside of work & party/functions) I don’t. I’ll put on chapstick & SPF 30 and call it a day.
But for work, I do. Like @DaneLady: said, I feel more polished & put together. It’s the same reason why I don’t show up to work with a messy bun, even though I wear that almost everywhere else.
Work face: SPF 30 (always), tinted moisturizer, light bronxer & mascara, chapstick.
Actually going out (to fancy bars, clubs, fancy dinners, etc): A lot of sh:t.

I don’t wear makeup if I can help it!
Anytime I am able to go makeup-free, I do, especially on the weekend.
I have long dark lashes and dark brows, which helps a ton.
I do wear some for work… some eyeshadow and mascara, and that’s it. If I don’t, I look (and feel) very tired and sloppy, unfortunately. :/

my mom never wore makeup, she told me it’d ruin/prematurely age my skin so I never bothered either.
out of curiosity I’ve let my friends put makeup on me a couple times, but I’ve always hated it. I like the way I look (and feel, god mascara is heavy) without any extra paint!
if I REALLY want to look pretty for a day, I put on some tinted chapstick. hahaha

@MrsPanda99: you are not alone! My make up routine involves putting on ChapStick every few hours. I very rarely throw on some mascara (maybe twice a month) and will sometimes throw some concealer on the occasional pimple but beyond that I’m so clueless about make up. I just can’t make the time to apply it in the morning. I would rather sleep in our catch up with DH over some coffee in the morning.
My skin is also super sensitive and I’ve had bad reactions to some make up that I’ve tried. Allergies also make me wary of wearing eye makeup.

@MrsPanda99: nope, I’m right there wit you.

@chronicwhimsy: +1. If I’m going out and want to look extra nice, I will. Every once in a while, I’ll wear something very light on a random day. But it’s definitely not an everyday thing. I’d hate to wear it every day and then not wear it one day and look “tired” or “sick” to everyone who’s used to seeing me with makeup.

@MrsPanda99: I rarely ever wear makeup. When I do, its normally special occasions and I wear only eye makeup. I have noticed many times though, that my face looks more alive when I do wear makeup, and very dull and lifeless without it. I typically change my hair color because I just don’t wear makeup often. Change of hair color gives life back to my face.
I do get pedicures every once in a blue moon. I rarely ever get nails done because I feel like I’ve been rendered incapable of doing pretty much everything. So after a day, I want to rip them off.
I do pluck my eyebrows though.

@MrsPanda99: I rarely wear makeup. It’s just so much trouble for something that ultimately just seems to make me break out. I do get my nails done, because I like them, but I don’t get my brows fixed or anything like that.
