Make up or no? Use it? Like it on others? Why?

I almost never wear makeup and am not sure I wouldn't know how to effectively apply it anymore. I never was much on using it except when I modeled a bit or special events. I think I'm who I am with or without the makeup! Do you wear it? Do you like it on others? xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo Joy is the best makeup. —Anne Lamott

I rarely use makeup either. If I am going out, I might use a little blush for some color and some mascara, thats about it. I can't even tell you the last time I wore eye shadow. I never have been one to wear much make up even when I was young.

Don't wear it. Don't like it. I remember a roommate in college that would get up 2 HOURS before her class and apply makeup! Good Grief! Now I have a roomie (not the blind one) who spends at least 3 hours getting ready for work. Granted, about 30 minutes is walking around for each item.

The only time I wear makeup is when I am going out somewhere special! I have a very busy life and cannot take the time to sit there every morning and apply makeup!

I don't use makeup since I got out of college. It was fine during the years that I was there but it just doesn't suit me anymore. I doon't mind when other people wear it as long as they don't have it caked on. That's just tacky.

I never wear makeup either. I think it makes me look like a clown. I think that I look okay without it. I think it looks good on alot of other people though. There are some people who do not look good with it at all though. They use way too much of it. I wear mascara on my eye lashes every now and then though if I feel like expressing my eyes.

No, actually i don't wear make up as a whole. I am more on a lip shiner girl or sometimes I wear my lip balm only. LOL. I used face powder everyday but on blush on it depends if I am inspired to use it. Like i want to look beautiful for a day for a change. I am very simple and I don't patronize to use make up for everyday use.

I like to wear make up, it even out my skin tone and makes me features stand out. If I am going out somewhere at night, I always where make up, it makes me feel like I am more dressed up then. I would feel too casual if I was going to dinner or something without make up. When I am at home I don't wear make up. I like make up on others, I would love to learn how to apply eye make up really well. I particularly like using mineral make up.

As i'm a boy,i dont use makeup.But i dont mind others use it if they make up lightly and naturally.I think the womens seems more beautiful if they use makeup properly.

I have to admit, I'm a big advocate of makeup. It's fun! And it isn't as scary as many people think. The biggest misconception is the so-called "artificiality" of makeup. But really, makeup isn't meant to be like a mask. (If your skin can't breathe, then you're putting on WAY too much!) Yes women are beautiful without makeup--but personally, I believe the sole purpose of makeup is to ENHANCE one's natural beauty.

When I was younger I never wore make up but now I wear a little every day. I never go all out except for special occassions. On a daily basis, I usually just wear soe eye liner and mascara.

I'm definitly not a fan of makeup, and I don't wear it much. It makes my face itch and feels dirty. I feel more like myself and less fidgity when I keep it down to lipstick.

Mimi Bobeck - Mimi from the Drew Carey show.
Well, when I still lived in Vancouver and worked in the movie biz, I wore full makeup all the time but now I just do the mascara and lipstick thing if I'm going somewhere that I need to look half-presentable (not always, though). I have a friend who just loves eye makeup, and often goes to stores' makeup counters to use their samples instead of her own makeup. Most of the time, she ends up looking like Mimi from the Drew Carey Show. I tease her about it.

i am not a fan of make ups ever since. i just use them during special occasions. when working, i just put on a light powder and a little pink blush on my cheeks and i'm off to work. i have lots of make up kits from friends and mascaras which i bought myself but are just piled in my cabinet. sometimes, i feel like putting make up like even on ordinary days but i am just so lazy to do it. anne
