I was a tomboy as a kid and my mom, though she loved makeup, never ever said a word to me about it. My parents always taught me that a firm handshake and respectable clothes (just professional; nothing super girly) were the keys to landing a good job, not makeup. PS, I also look like a kid with no makeup because I'm fair-skinned and have light eyelashes. I put it on once in a while, but no teenager should ever feel like they "should" wear makeup because it's expected. PPS--I have a very good job where I am quite high up in the organization. And I barely ever wear makeup to work.

i'm 32 and only recently got into makeup about a year and a half ago. I was raised in a super religious household where makeup was forbidden and seen as something that only vapid, "loose" women wore (i know, i know, lol). I don't wear it all the time nor do i feel that i need to but i find it a lot of fun to try different looks. i'm not anywhere near good at it though since i haven't had years of practice like other women my age but i'm definitely having fun trying.

Our neighbors belong to a church where the women don't wear make up. All of those women (we've socialized with them at our neighbor's parties and functions) all have perfect and amazing skin. I think a lot of people have skin issues - greasy, dry, break outs and such - because they DO wear make up. I wear it myself, but it's really not good for your skin.

Imo, you're super lucky if you don't need any makeup at all. I can see not wearing eye makeup, but no concealer, foundation, powder either? My face would be a greasy, uneven mess without it. I guess I just don't have the skin type/tone to pull off 100% bare faced.

So I've been thinking about the whole makeup debate and vowed to myself last night that I was gonna go bare-faced to work today. Got out of the shower, got dressed, dried my hair, put my face lotion on..... then started to apply makeup like I was on auto-pilot. Maybe next time on the whole bare-faced thing, but still I'm wearing less today than normal. It did make me think, though, the fact that I started putting it on out of sheer habit. That can't be good. More to think about.

I think I look stupid with make-up. Yes it's done right - it just looks silly and out of place. Probably just my face though!

I confessed on here too and was mocked, called a troll, and told how stupid I was for allowing such and such to happen.

In response to a confession. I disagree with you heartily, OP. I am grown woman, and I don't wear makeup, style my hair, or shave - unless I want too. I never dress inappropriate to an occasion, but that is as far as I am willing to cave to society's expectations. To infer that makes anyone less of a grown woman is insulting.

I was just saying to a friend yesterday how DD19 really needs to wear makeup more often, and today she's texting me that she put makeup on today. She's very nearly a grown woman, and women wear makeup. Particularly to places like job interviews and dates and events and stuff. She's beautiful without it, but it's expected in our society. And she should be adept at putting it on, and make it part of her routine just like shaving or styling her hair. I mean like- if she's going to wear a dress she needs to shave. If she's going to an event she needs to style her hair, not just run a comb through it. And she should put on a little makeup, not just wash her face if she has somewhere important to go.

I hate raising kids in the internet age. HATE IT! And I hate that kids are exposed to and have to worry about all the the bullshit that goes along with it.
