Make up or Without Make up?

Most of the girls now put on make up whenever they go out. And it is almost impossible to not make up before going to work for the ladiez. Girls have to dress well and put on make up and also smell good especially when they goes to work. I mean just being neat. I have a girl friend who would never ever go out without make-up. I believe this could be anyone of the girls here or at least someone we know. What do you think about this? .To me, if it is the case, it would be hard to see her without make up. lol probably would look not as good as after putting the make up. the question is do you support the saying that "girl should make up whenever they go out just to look good?" Personally I think girls do not need to be in make up all the time they go out. It is enough to be natural. I think I just like to be natural.

Before I got married and had kids I wore makeup every single day. Now most of my days I'm just natural without any makeup at all. I think it's important to have some "no makeup" days so that your skin can breathe and recover from all of the chemicals we put on our face.

I guess it depends on the occasion. If it's for a formal event that requires a proper, positive presentation, then it's mandatory to apply proper makeup to enhance the outlook. This calls for the knowledge of applying the makeup to give yourself the positive image. However, when makeup is blatantly used without the knowledge of dress sense or the nature of the occasions, then it does not enhance the beauty but will destroy it. For casual occasions, perhaps a light and simple makeup would do, otherwise just go natural as you have said. I know for some girls they see makeup as a layer of protective defense against the of external harmful elements such as the UV rays from the sun, air pollution. But the fact is makeup in itself is still a layer of various cosmetic chemicals, more than the so-called vitamins or plant extracts included in the ingredients to protect the skin. One may receive some protection from the sun with the UV absorbing foundation, but can one say keeping the foundation on for the whole day is not damaging to the skin? Especially if the makeup is not removed thoroughly, then in fact the residue could harm the skin bit by bit. I remember there's an advice that if a girl wants to learn to put on makeup, then she must also learn how to remove it, thoroughly of course.

I don't wear make-up on any kind of regular basis. I have worn it on occasion, but it's definitely not a thing I keep track of it. I don't even know what colors I should wear.

I do put make-up when I go out at times, but not the heavy ones. Just a wipe of face powder would be enough for me. I find this helpful especially that I tend to have an oily face at times. Putting make-up for me is just for staying neat and protection from the harmful environment outside.

Just this weekend I saw one of the teacheers I had when I was in high school and she wasnt wearing makeup. As she left the store she came up to me and said im so glad I got to see you, but im sorry you saw me without makeup on. Personally I think she is one of those people that is pretty with or without makeup. I wear it if I go out but the people that see me every day it doesnt matter and shouldnt. If you see me every day then you should get use to how I look no matter what.

I don't wear makeup usually. Being a student it seems like I just don't have the energy! I'm amazed when I see girls that wear makeup everyday. However, I do think that makeup makes most women not only look a little better and more put together I think it makes them feel that way. I know that when I wear makeup it boosts my confidence!

I've never really been into makeup or anything. It's only recently that I started to wear makeup, but it's not everyday. There are some days, when I'm not in the mood to wear makeup, at all. For me, it really depends on the day and how I feel.

hello lovesummer if one has that natural beauty to them, then they ought to let it show. if not, then make-up should be required. lol i never leave my house unless i have my make-up on and my hair fixed up the way that i want it to look for the day. i do not have that natural beauty like some women do. i need all of the help that i can get to look my best on a daily basis. take care and have a beautiful afternoon.

Hi, Love! My mother was once a Miss America finalist, and I was the ugly duckling, so I was told never to leave the house without makeup from the time I was 9 or 10. It's all a matter of perception, because when the students at school vote for labels to put on teachers, I'm often most attractive and best dressed. Anyway, I hardly ever leave the house without makeup, and when I do it just doesn't feel right. As I get older, I often think it can stop, but old habits stick with us!

Wearing make up all the time really isn't good for our skin. I know some women don't have very good complexions, so they may feel they need the make up to hide some blemishes. I probably wear make up three days out of the seven days of the week. I always wear make up to places like church, but if I'm just going to the store or running errands, I don't. I look okay without it, so I like to let my skin "breathe."

I use to be one of them girls that would not go out without her make up on. I felt naked without my make up. But am no longer like that. Now i am not bothered by it. I prefer the natural look. I only ever wear make up when i am going out for the evening and that is only if i have the time to put it on.

I hardly ever wear Make-up, I guess I'm a plain Jane as some people would say. If we go out to a concert or something special I wear Make-up. I never wear it to work. I clean Rooms and Toilets I don't need Make-up for that.

I'm not pretty. I know this. I'm comfortable in my skin. And my older sister ALWAYS has cakes of make up on so it taught me young to not like it. My one vainity is nail polish but having kids has tempered even that. Rings are nice too but aren't really make up so maybe that doesn't count.
