Some people cannot wear cosmetics due to extreme sensitivity, especially mascara/eyeliner. There was a video posted on some website recently that showed how much of the cosmetic enters the tear film, which can really cause some serious irritation. It was disgusting.

I think most women nowadays go way overboard with the eye makeup. I am tired of seeing tarantula leg eyelashes and panda bear eyes.

Am I alone in finding this sort of inattention to appearance, extremely distracting?

She would've looked wonderful with a bit of color about her appearance, as it was both she and her topic were colorless and bland.

I know it sounds shallow but, grooming does speak about personality, and this scientist really looked as though she barely showered once a day.
You should go to Korea or Japan. Women of all ages wear make-up almost all the time. It is considered "impolite" not to wear it.

Yeah Im kindof sick of fake eyelashes. I always see them in the most awkward places like in class or at church. It's a little much outside of special ocassions.

We went to LA to see Craig Ferguson a few years ago, and when he walked out I couldn't believe how HORRIBLE he looked. He was so yellow he looked jaundiced. And so did the guests. We got to see the show later on TV, and he looked perfect.

I don't understand TV makeup -- but I think it's needed....

It's not shallow, but you're like most people in having your thinking biased by your profession. Your profession leads you to look at makeup, just like I'm sure a manicurist always looks at people's hands. On one hand, sure, you have a point. On the other hand, would you post in the same way here complaining about teenage boys who look like slobs or teenage girls who look like sluts?

All I said is I found her appearance distracting.

What on earth does this have to do with teenage sluts?

Am I missing something?
