I notice this on lots of older women.

CeraVe. You can find it in any fully stocked drugstore. I use the both the day and night cream. One of its ingredients it hyaluronic acid. Its good stuff.

Just as lack of makeup does not equal uneducated or dull, neither does wearing makeup create an intelligent or interesting person.
But you said specifically "the last word in the sentence", which is "woman". To say that you disagree that she's a woman is rude, in my opinion.

I think it's a matter of opinion; I've seen some (in my opinion) unkempt-looking people and also some overly made-up people on TV and in both cases I think, Yikes!

I also think the long-time trend of photographing people for interviews in an in-your-face style is bad for just about anybody; in my opinion, everyone would benefit from backing the camera up a bit!

I am sure everyone could use a little improvement on MANY things IF they wanted to look PERFECT such as weight, clothes, hair, nails, teeth, posture, boobs, height, etc. BUT people come in all different forms and have different genetics. Plus not everyone has the time or money nor is everyone as hung up on LOOKS as you are.

As long as someone is clean and practices good hygiene that is the most important because that affects their health. And many of the things people are doing to their bodies and skin can be very unhealthy.

So stop judging unless of course you are perfect in every single possible way yourself which, of course, we know isn't possible.
Ironic, don't ya think?

The original poster is a make up artist. Her viewpoint is tied to her art, or work, not petty slandering judgement. Most anyone who creates something for a career has an opinion on their subject. If a person builds homes for a living & is building side by side with another builder, they will have a different way of looking at the homes than perspective buyers. Years ago knew someone who painted show cars. Could not go through a parking lot anywhere w/o a comment on the appearance/paint work of a car. It was his trade. Does that make any sense?

Do not believe the o/p was purposely trying to be malicious or harmful in sharing an opinion that is a work based point of view.

But carry on saying it makes no difference at all! You all obviously have nothing to prove and think your personal appearance is just dandy without basic grooming!

And no, im not talking a full mask either (who can be bothered?). A bit of color is ESSENTIAL when you get older as everything fades.

More like she NEEDS the make up.

Grooming and being in full make up are not the same thing. Do you get that?

And seriously, why bother to pretend you look like something other than your true self? I would rather people see me as I truly am, naturally, instead of a fake painted up me. (Like that horrible before/after pic someone posted).

I will agree that a little bit is fine, IE, blond lashes with a coat of mascara, lip gloss, but the photos someone else posted...really? Wonder what her SO thought the first time they took a shower together!

It doesn't make sense in the sense that all cars are painted, so it's reasonable to comment of the quality of the paint job on a particular car. All women do not wear make up and OP's career notwithstanding, the women who choose not to wear make up are not wrong or "distracting," they are simply making a different choice. It would be more like your friend criticizing any car that wasn't air brush painted. Or I guess criticizing any car that was "female" or whatever the car equivalent would be.

No.

I could buy this if she didn't mention hygiene. She could have made her point without the mean spirited remarks about how dirty the woman looked.

Yep, it would be akin to the friend deciding that some car must run horribly because the paint job wasn't up to snuff. The outside might say something about the inside, but then again it might not, kinda silly to judge on looks alone.

That woman looks like she is going out to work the streets. That's A LOT of make-up!!
