You look fine, really.

Makeup is a total pain in the ass. It blocks your pores. It's expensive. You can get pink eye. It takes a chunk of time out of your day putting it on and taking it off.

Why bother with all that nonsense?

You look fine and will stay looking fine a lot longer without it.

Leave it off or wear less and go enjoy yourself!

  1. When I was in high school, I got a card from a friend that said, ‘Smile — it improves your face value!’.
    I like wearing a smile rather than a lot of makeup. I think many women would look a lot better if they left most of it off.
    Besides a smile, I admit that I like to wear just a little makeup, now that I’ve got a few more years on my face…just to emphasize my eyes. It makes me feel more confident, just like a good hairstyle puts a bounce in my step.
    But that’s it! I’m not interested in covering anything up. I earned those wrinkles!

  2. I stopped wearing makeup about five years ago, after I found out my boyfriend couldn’t tell the difference between when I was wearing makeup and when I wasn’t.

  3. Excellent advice for all. I wore make up through age 20 and haven’t touched it regularly since. I’m into sunscreen by way of moisturizers and that’s it.

  4. Heh. I’m erratic about actually using it, but I actually find that the light sunscreen/foundation I like seems to make my skin *better*. This seems counterintuitive even if it’s not supposed to be pore-clogging — my working theory is that it makes me subconsciously less likely to touch my face during the course of the day.
    Never have gotten the hang of eye makeup, though.
