    Oh it could be worse in the hair fashion dept.

    Anyone remember the late 80's?? The big shrub for bangs? The side wings?? A permed frizzball for the rest of the hair? Took an hour to do, and an hour to comb out after washing it 5 times, since the hairspray wouldn't come out? Buying AquaNet aerosol hairspray like crazy?

    (or maybe that was just me.)

    yes I wear makeup. Tastefully. I enjoy making myself look alive and pretty for work. Call me a weirdo. I just put it on for work or going out, never at home.

    I don't wear makeup on or off the job, unless it's a very special occasion like a wedding or for formal pictures.

    not to much. Just enough so I don't look as bad as my pt. base, blush and eyeliner just a little color. With three kids and a twelve hour shift to go it kind of falls to the back burner.

    I wear very little make up, clean, healthy skin, moisturizer,mascara and groomed brows - I think the clean professional look is important.

    I love clinque too!

    Me neither. I went to Marshall Field's once to get a lipstick for a special occasion to wear with the foundation which is the only makeup I wear even on special occasions otherwise. I let myself get talked into having some eye makeup and such applied just to dress me up. The look on my husband's and son's faces when I got back to where they were was priceless. Of course, my husband scored major points when he told me his objection was that I am so beautiful without makeup that he thought putting all that goop on my face just hid my natural beauty behind a bunch of paint. Needless to say I went home and washed it all off then just put on my normal dressy bit of foundation plus a light brush of lipstick, and both he and I (not to mention Peanut) were all much happier with the outcome.

    I feel nude if I don't wear makeup.

    Yes, I use it, but am a "beauty sped" as my friends have dubbed me. I wear enough to keep from scaring small children in the parkinglot, but that's about it. If it takes longer than a couple of minutes -- NOPE. SO, I guess I am a minimalist in the makeup department. ( Hair -- wash and go style -- missing my ponytail . Since I got it cut short, I actually need to do stuff with it!)

    Now where were all these ponytail vs. short hair threads back in October when I was considering my short haircut??? I know, I know... selective reading. >doh!< All I was seeing was "wash and go"... I completely overlooked the part about "now I have to spend more time fixing it". :roll
