    I finally bought "Bare Minerals" and love it. Foundation on we older women just accentuates our imperfections. I've had makeovers that make me feel like a hooker.

    I don't like lipstick but a colored gloss is good for me. I carry it in my pocket.

    We do have one CNA who is quite beautiful - tall, gorgeous long curly hair, lovely face. She is in her 20's. Comes in to work at 0245 w/o makeup but then after report, she heads to the BR and puts it on. Way too much - "Tammy Faye" - with wild colored eye shadow. She is so much prettier w/o the makeup and has no imperfections to cover. But she won't believe us.

    Do you like Bare Minerals? I have thought about trying it, it just seemed too good to be true in the advertising.

    I like bare minerals too! It only takes a couple of minutes to apply and the concealer is great! Not chalky or "masky" at all.

    Yes, I do. It looks more natural - to me. And covers some things I don't like about my face.

    It took me a long time to try it - I've had such bad experiences with cosmetic counters.

    I just use Bare Minerals real quick to get rid of the shine and to even my skin out. That's it. Even when I go out I rarely wear much more than that, and since I work with babies I don't want it to rub off on them. I'd rather spend the extra time in the morning sleeping.

    We are allowed to wear "minimal" makeup at our workplace, but they don't want you to go overboard. If you do, they will send you home without pay to take it off and come back looking "decent". We are also not allowed to wear long or artificial nails or ANY nail polish if we work directly with patients.

    Unstoppable mascara by mabelline, that stuff is good. Era face, waterproof, sweatproof, is good too. I dont do well with maintaining it but hell I make an effort in the am, part of getting dressed to me. Also, the one plus of being a woman, is we can change what nature gave us a bit.

    I guess I won't be working in the OR then....that bites! I love surgery too, but I would feel too self-conscious all day. :uhoh21:
    Hey!:uhoh21: I work in the OR and without sounding too conceited, I have been told I am most definitely NOT homely, LOL. You just have to find a good makeup that stays put. The hats can make your hair a little messy but I've found that when I have long hair, it's easier. I just run a brush through it and voila, it looks nice again. I have also found that OR nurses tend to look younger than their age, at least around here. Most of us have really nice complexions, believe it or not. I think it's because we're hardly ever outside. Maybe the chemicals and gases have something to do with it as well. As a side note, over the past few days I've noticed a lot of bashing of OR nurses in a couple of posts. Be nice to us-you never know when you might need surgery and we're the ones who will be keeping an eye on you and making sure that not everyone in the OR sees you naked! :spin:

    That is why I don't work OR. Those blue hats are not attractive.

    The only time I've gone back is to be the baby nurse for cesareans.

    And no one looks at me because they are all busy with mom . . . and I can hightail it out as soon as the baby is stable.

    They make really cute cloth scrub hats with various patterns, which are what a lot of us wear. I have long thick hair, so the little paper hats don't work for me.

    I know - all the nurses wear them - the docs just wear the blue ones.

    However, I do not look good in any kind of headgear. My face needs hair. . . . that came out wrong . . . not hair ON my face, hair AROUND my face.
