Don't put makeup on no one cares!

My 13 year old daughter left her homework folder and science book home today. When I saw it on the table after she left I groaned and started putting makeup on. My son heard the phone ring and brought it to me. It was my daughter asking me to bring her things to her. I told her it would be there in ten minutes. She said ten minutes was to long and said "Don't put your makeup on no one cares." Well girl I care and I wear makeup for myself not for others! It makes me feel more confident.

Kids really do not filter what they say, but such are kids!!! I always wear makeup if I am to be out of the house. Heck, I wear it all day long even if I do not leave the house.

The first thing my mother always did when she woke up was put on eyeliner and mascara. That’s all she ever wore but it was a big difference to her looks. She looks sickly without it.

I am the opposite I don't wear it if I don't go out and see anyone. At home my skin needs a break from the makeup.

@shaggin I'll wear it sometimes when I go out but at work I'm in and out of the cold and the hot and sweating too much that it just doesn't matter. I will wear mascara most days though

She's a straight A student and has the second highest gpa in her grade so her teacher will cut her some slack if her homework is ten minutes late.

@shaggin that's is why she was asking you to come to her at the earliest . You knew it so why you wasted time. You daughter knows you better.

thats funny. yes some of us have to have it for our own well being. but some don't understand. my mom would not step out of the house with out it. i started out that way at 14 yrs. , but kept getting told it didn't work for me by others. so i got to where i seldom wore it. now i wish i had worn it more because i don;t know how to apply it right. never learned

If you feel okay without it then that is awesome! It is harder to apply as we get older due to wrinkles etc. I started wearing it daily when I was 12 stopped for a year then started again and have worn it anytime I leave the house since and I am 34. My mother put eyeliner and mascara on as soon as she woke up always!

I can relate from a very subtle stand point: when I want to enhance my already super cute face, I'll put the appropriate cosmetic enhancers and dazzle people but to just go somewhere like grocery shop or library, what the heck for ?

@shaggin I feed that concept of myself and some can even call it the arrogant bi**h syndrome I socially yield when confronted by lets say 'the fashion police' . . . I laughed when a great guy I was dating once said, "God don't like ugly" and he meant it by what comes from within radiating out is not always nice so to work on that first instead of covering what appearances to some appear as 'ugly' can be very beautiful indeed. Does that make sense my beautiful girl without make up ?

@enlightenedpsych2 In high school I had that syndrome but it was all an act I put on so people would not know how shy and insecure I was. If I laughed at their taunts they couldn't get the satisfaction from hurting me. For the most part I think I am beautiful on the inside and that is much more important then being pretty on the outside.

We use to put make up when going out. If it's your habit you will always do that. I'm used to going out without makeup now. I look plain when going out now. But we always look good with at least lipstick

I can go without lipstick as it doesn't really do much for my looks with my tiny mouth. I absolutely cannot go out without at least foundation as my skin has so much redness and blemishes its embarassing.

@shaggin I love these BB creams, even the cheap ones. They seem to heal the breakouts I still get in my old age. They even the skin tone and do not seem to rub off on everything. I treat it like moisturizer, and am pleased with all the good things it does.

There is nothing wrong with that at all. I definitely look a lot different with makeup. I draw the line at all that contouring and eyebrow shaping etc. I wear foundation, a small amount of eyeliner, mascara, blush, eyeshadow and lipstick. That’s enough junk on my face without contouring and all that.

@jaboUK I had no filter so I said anything that popped in my head. She is pretty blunt at home but hopefully out around other adults she remembers to use tact more. Her teachers love her so I assume thats more the case.

When she was small and would ask why I wore makeup I didn’t want her to know I think I’m ugly and to think someday she should wear it so I would tell her I just liked to get fancied up.

You have a very observant 13 year old. Most teenagers today have a short attention span given the wide variety of distraction available...which was probably the reason she left her homework behind.

Lol nope she prefers band cds and other merchandise of her favorite bands which is always growing. She wanted eye liner so I bought her some but with the eye condition she was born with (nystagmus) she couldn't put it on.
