I usually don't wear makeup unless I'm going out to a nice event or party. With the summer heat in NC, most women don't wear makeup unless they are inside all day anyway.

Or more accurately, those with good skin. There are a lot of people who are attractive with bad skin, and they use makeup to improve.

I don't have a problem with makeup, but I'd hate to feel, as many women do, that I can't leave the house if I don't put any on. On days I don't wear makeup, I still wear moisturizer/sunscreen.
We have the same philosophy it sounds like.

My mom and grandmothers never really more makeup other than occasional lipstick at church, so I didn't even learn how to use it until I was in college really.

Yes, that's true.

I feel so lucky.

I wear lipstick and SPF moisturizer most days. I will wear blush, powder, and a little eye shadow on occasion.

Almost every day is no makeup day for me. I simply don't want all of those chemicals on my face day after day. I will wear something occasionally if I am dressed up for an occasion, which isn't all that often.

I also wear my naturally long curly hair, natural. I wash and condition every day and comb through some leave-in conditioner and let it air dry. I haven't used a blow dryer in years and never straighten it either. I get so many compliments on my hair, much more so than when I spent hours trying to straighten it in my younger days.

I rushed out the door one day without putting on my makeup, and people at work asked me if I was tired or coming down with something. Heck, I'd totally go without my face on if it meant I could finagle a sick day.

Are you kidding me? Make your way further east and diversify your mind.

Every day for me is a no make-up day. I also don't use moisturizers or well, anything. Can't stand the feel of it and don't see the point of it.

Wearing no makeup is no problem. Heck I don't even own any, lol. Actually most of the women I know including my stepdaughter don't wear makeup. We have a lot of farmers and natural/green hippie type people in my area. I like the natural look. The people are also very real


My hair many days is natural although sometimes it drives me crazy. I am in the grow out stage right now so I clip it anyway.


I draw the line at shaving. I am Italian and there is no way I will stop shaving. I might push it in the winter but no where near 60 days
