    • I don’t wear a lot of makeup.  (I should!).  I wear it to work and when we go out.  I don’t think I’ll ever stop wearing it.

    • I think it’s an individual choice.  Angelcart, I’m with you.  I don’t wear a lot of make up but I put it on everyday.  Even though I work from home, I feel better with a little eye shadow and mascara.  I think I will always wear it.  And when I can’t put it on anymore, then maybe someone will do it for me?  estatic

    • I feel it depends on your skin and how you feel.... maybe just mascara? or lip gloss? instead of full face?

    • I don’t wear any.  The only time I wear some is to go out which is very seldom.

    • Like Maryann I usually just wear mascara, a little blush and lip gloss.  It’s too hot down here in the south to wear foundation and powder.

    • I think it’s best to discontinue the make-up when one can see the make-up.  Cosmetics are supposed to be an enhancement to nature not an artificial mask.  

      I am 55 and come from a generation when all the women had to “foxes,” jogged while pregnant, and no one breast fed an infant to prevent sagging, etc. The minute one woke up the feet ran to the bathroom to begin the beauty process.

      My first jolt to the questioning of make-up was to run for Queen at Pasadena City in CA.  I was 24.  I noticed some of the women showing up weren’t wearing any make-up as a norm on a daily basis, but kept it preserved for special time periods.  These were the trophy queens. They won everything they entered. They had so many beauty pageant and home queen type trophies under their belts, it was awing.  

      It’s perception.  To me being at the college on a daily basis was a big enough deal to justify cosmetics, but to them it was just the dirty grit of life.  I guess, it’s a round of how to read somebody visible to all.  

      I let go just a bit after that.  For me there as the jolt, as dumb as it sounds, of noting, the checker at the grocery store makes the distinction of who can pay her bill, and not who makes that splash with her personal effect.  

      I noticed by 55 foundations and powders are obvious, eye make-up has to be just what lightly tones down the blotches,
      and rouge has to blend in.   I’ve noticed in magazines and on t.v., Hollywood per se has the elderly woman in a light pink lipstick or gloss regardless of personal color bests.

      I noticed at 55 it’s worth the money to have eye brows professionally waxed.  The difference is night and day.  The properly shaped grooming a professional does stands out and creates a new woman.
