I rarely wear makeup anymore. Haven't for over 10 years. The once or twice a year that I do I usually just use some light blush, some brow powder, a bit of black liner pencil (well smudged so it's not obvious) and some lipstick. Takes all of 1 minute if that, to apply.
Years ago I was a heavy makeup wearer. Foundation, powder, liquid eyeliner, sometimes 5 eye shadows at a time, blush, mascara, brow pencil, lip liner, lipstick, nail polish, concealer sticks, camaflage colours for dark circles/skin rudiness...you name it, I wore it. Actually I think I still have all that stuff sitting in my bathroom not being used.
I can't stand mascara. I haven't worn that stuff in more than 20 years. I used to wear contact lenses and found that even the non flaking mascara flaked and caused my eyes to feel dry and irritated my contact lenses. I don't need nor want my eye lashes to look like they are 3 inches long.
Au Natural is so much better. I can't tell you how many compliments I get from guys since I stopped wearing makeup.
The girl who is the "go between" for me and my long term disability company is very pretty. But she ruins it all by packing on the makeup so thick that she looks like she had a session with a mortitian. And that's at 10am. I'd hate to see how much she wears if she is going out in the evening.
