Definitely. I love wearing make up but I'm OK with myself without it. I usually try to go at least a day or two without it during the week to air myself out lol. I'd be hitting the gym a lot! The gym is a fine place to blend in without makeup .

I don't like the way I look in photos without makeup, but I could deal with it. There are several public photos of me floating about sans make-up, doing outdoorsy things so whatever.

PS am i allowed to pluck my eyebrows?

Oh yes! I'm a blonde and look totally washed out without makeup, but with a million dollars I could buy all the makeup i wanted. I would have to continue with my skin care though.

In a heartbeat! Even though I love makeup (except lipstick), my lifestyle has become such, that I almost never wear it anyway. When I quit the corporate world, I no longer needed to, then I moved to one of the most casual states in the US. I work at home & rarely go anywhere more exciting than the post office or the grocery store, so it's become easy for me. Honestly, I only wear it when I go out now & I almost never go out. It's been so long now without, that some makeup just feels weird & looks strange to me, like I'm a clown or something when I wear it.

As for PJ's, heck, I'd love to wear my PJ's for a year. I'd do it for half what the OP is 'offering'

No problem. When do I start...I'd like to get on this pronto.

Figures. I could have easily done this. I look pretty much the same with or without...except my eyes, but you know what, I wouldn't give a rat's behind what anyone thought or said because in a year, I'd have a million dollars and they would never see me again.

Heck yea! I don't wear much of it anyway. So, this will be an EASY way for me to earn a million.

I was thinking about this post today--In reality my job require basic make-up--so no, I am not willing to give up my health insurance, 4021k and other benefits to get a million dollars.

This is along the lines of why I answered how I did. If I could go around life for a year (or more) with my very red complexion with no consequences, it would be one thing. But the reality is that how you are treated and people's perceptions of you, including your credibility and potential, is a function of your appearance. I noticed the difference as soon as I started using foundation years ago. And in this hypothetical situation it could have longer term consequences. $1 million is not *THAT* much money in the context of many years - I certainly couldn't retire now for that payment.

I would not even have to think about it - Yes!
