I wouldn't like it, but for a million $$$ I'd do it. But I'd be biting my lips and pinching my cheeks to get a little color in them....

Hell yes for a million bucks I would. My make-up is subdued anyway, the hardest thing for me would be no lipstick. I never leave the house with lipstick. It brightens my whole face.

I would do it for the million. It would pay for my children's college. I'd also go get a few facials to make my skin look better.

Sure...even though I don't think I look great WITH makeup I really don't like being withOUT it.

But I'm relatively solitary except for work and if I'm getting a million bucks I won't sweat the small possibility that I won't get promoted because of my looks. Actually, with that kind of money I'd retire now instead of waiting 10 years! I'm not turning down a cool mill because of vanity!

I hear that a lot ("men prefer the natural look"), but what they're imagining still requires some makeup for many women. We've lost sight of what "natural" actually looks like.

Absolutely! I'd even (happily) wear pajamas for a year if I'd make a million.

Then after many years of that, I just got tired of it. Weekends were for being lazy (and not applying makeup!), but hubby was always asking me to run to Lowe's or Home Depot with him and wouldn't wait for me to apply makeup. I started giving it up to go there. Then stopped altogether. Well, except if we're going out in the evening. I don't work outside the home, though. That might've kept me using it for much longer. I'm early 50s. Thank goodness for a good complexion. I do curl my eyelashes and put on a dap of colored lip balm to feel more than just a bum, though :-)
This! Ten years ago I'd have said "No, I AM the person you see with makeup. I don't know that other person and you don't want to know her..." In the last few years I've realized it doesn't change a damn thing.
