When I was a little girl my mom used to always tell me "less is more" when it came to make up. That always stuck out in my mind so I always tried to go with more of a "natural look" Just some foundation, powder, eye liner, mascara, a little blush and lip gloss on occassion. If I was getting really primped up I might put on a little bit of eye shadow, but not much.
Pretty much everyone I know and have hung out with wears make up. To me it's just part of being a girl, trying to look nice and your best face forward.
When I started working at my job I was really surprised at how many women DO NOT wear ANY make up. I'm not talking old married women either. These are cute, single gals. But they are all so PLAIN looking.
Maybe it's the nature of my job. I work for a "conservation" agency which is pretty much tree hugger central. I didn't plan out to work here, it just kind of fell in my lap so I don't have the mentality that someone that picked this profession would have I guess.
You know, kind of hippy-ish, down on the farm, maybeimalesbian type.
It's really kind of a culture shock sometimes.
Especially when we are discussing wardrobes and someone shows off their "natural" legs. Now I've seen hairy legs before but they were always on a man. The rule of thumb has kind of always been that if you wear anything but jeans, you shave your legs.
Not quite the case here.
So how about you? Do you shave and wear make up on a daily basis?Pin It
