Just wanted to add to the list of makeup free girls, I occasionally put it on for a night out. But less since I have been with Fiance, there are better things to be doing.

Also, after my makeup trial I decided i look older with makeup on than I do usually, so that is one hell of a reason to stay makeup free!

(confess to loving pretty coloured nails though, but only if I do them myself)

@MrsPanda99:  I don’t wear it either.  I feel completely incompetent when I attempt to put it on, so I usually give up and wash my face.  The extent of my makeup abilities is mascara, and maybe a bit of cover up power?  I don’t even know the proper terms…

Anytime we used to go out in university, I would count on my girl friends to apply it for me.  If they weren’t around I was out of luck.

Although, I do really enjoy pedicures, but I don’t go often.

@MrsPanda99:  Haha, I loathe gross feet.  But mine are pretty!  And I mostly go for the massage.  I dragged my husband to get a pedicure once.  He wears workboots all day and he has nasty feet.  He actually really liked going, but wouldn’t admit it to anyone until his buddies started talking about going and thinking it was a great idea.  Now he proudly proclaims that he’s been and would go again.

I wish I could apply it properly.  I don’t think I would bother on a day-to-day basis, but it would be nice to be able to do it for weddings and the odd outing without feeling like an idiot.

@MrsPanda99:  Nope, you’re not alone.  I wash my face, moisturize on occasion (when I remember), and pluck my eyebrows.  Spending time and money on makeup and beauty stuff annoys me.  I don’t even wear makeup to work.  If people don’t like it, too bad :-p

@MrsPanda99:  

 

I actually LOVE makeup, love getting my makeup done at makeup counters and spend an obscene amount of money on makeup

 

 

 

But I honestly couldnt tell you the last time I wore any…

 

Edit: It was the bridal shower, 2 weeks ago. Before that your guess is as good as mine…

I used to only wear makeup for nights out until I realize I could look super hot all the time. Now, I go to brunch or the gym barefaced, but wear foundation/eye primer/ nude eyeshadow/two different mascaras/eyebrow powder/blush/lipgloss almost all the time. I call it “my face” and it takes me all of 3-5 minutes to shove everything on. I look fine without it, but I look way better than fine with my face on.

Peopleoften remark on how I always look put together, and usually, I want to reply, “it’s not me, it’s Estée Lauder.”

I tried make-up back in high school.  It seemed like far more trouble than it was worth, and I haven’t worn it regularly in the intervening 40+ years.

Me me!  I actually went rounds about this with my Step-MIL.  “I draw the line at makeup” (rinse and repeat… repeatedly).  Plus Darling Husband thought it would be really odd if I wore it (which I obviously didn’t want to), since he’d never seen me with makeup.  He’d never seen me in a dress either, but he thought that was exciting. ๐Ÿ™‚

I haven’t worn makeup since I was in 8th grade, just to shut my mother up about saying I’d like it sooner or later.  “oh, you’ll feel different at 15 [20, 25, 30, 35 … she finally gave up]”. So I tried it for a couple months, hated every day of it.  I’m 37 and still don’t care about makeup or anything else “girly”.

I dated a guy for almost a year once, who wanted to give me the “spa treatment” for my birthday… :/.  I don’t like people touching me, I’m allergic to everything that smells, AND I don’t care about girly stuff… NEXT!

Also, I’ve only known one woman who actually looked better with makeup than without, but you couldn’t even tell she was wearing it.  She just did awesome job highlighting her good points/minimizing bad… I’m sure plenty of women can do it, but I don’t know them :).

@MrsPanda99:  I never wear any make-up.  Only recently did I decide that an occasional pedi was nice (but it still feels like an extravagence).  I’ve had a mani a few times, but it seems like such a waste because I always end up chipping them right away  I’m almost dreading having make up done for my wedding.

I don’t wear makeup unless I have a huge pimple or if I’m going out. 

When I do put on makeup, I only do the basic three things: cover blemishes, mascara and eyeliner.

@MrsPanda99:  Not at all i was a total glamazon b4 film school … never go out in my glasses or with out make up perfect 

 

then i had to be up at 6 to get there so no poking my self in the eye to wear contacts… if i dont have those on i cant even see my face to put on the make up (though i can put stuff on blind i perfer not to) 

 

So now most days its spf lip blam and spf mosturizer thats it … I am totally capable of putting on make up infact at one point i was going to become a make up artist (alot of ppl don’t believe me when they see me nude faced every day) 

I just choose not to i like to not hassle i have nice skin if i happen to put contacts in i might wear mascara or eyeliner 

 

I have never had a facial or any of that stuff though i do enjoy a mani and peddie

I am a girly girl. Howerver I do like to do my own nails and have my eyebrows done 1 a month, but I never where make up unless it is something special. It is bad to wear it every day, it is mostly toxic, so why would I want to wear it on the daily.

I never wear makeup ๐Ÿ™‚ Like, ever.  I had subtle makeup professionally done for the wedding, but on a daily basis/even going out, I don’t wear anything.  I fail as a girl ๐Ÿ˜‰ whatever.
