    I have always worn make-up even back when I was in Nursing school. I don't feel dressed without it, & I don't want to scare my patients!

    Light foundation, powder and lipstick, here. No eye make-up, as I get really sweaty at work, and it would be a mess.

    I too do the natural look...I end up looking like a racoon within a few hours if I put mascara on. Maybe a little lipstick now and then. One thing to remember, some facilities/hospitals are now implementing 'no fragrance' policies...so if you do use hair productslike gel or hairspray, you might have to make sure they are unscented. I don't think too many make up products are heavily scented, so your probably safe there.

    I don't wear makeup because it feels like I'm wearing a sticky mask no matter what makeup I try LOL...and my poor face just breaks out every time I try it...as for hair, mine is VERY short so I can usually blow it dry and spray it with a little hairspray and it looks great! (until I look in the mirror when I get home, however! lmao) :chuckle

    I can't imagine wearing makeup...this is what I look like...no artificial colours. When men are expected to wear makeup everyday too, perhaps Id consider it. Until then its sexist to think I don't look presentable without paint but my male coworkers do. Then again, I think its sexist that I have to wear a top to the beach but men don't. I just want equal standards for grooming and dress...no so much to ask.

    I use one of those all-in-one stick makeups that has the foundation and powder together. I use just enough, so I won't go into work every morning looking like something out of the Body Snatchers. :stone
    LOL!:chuckle

    I remember a time when I wore something by the name of makeup.. seems like a time long ,long, ago. Currently I race around class to class.. wishing for a professor with just a smidge of patience, some more aah hah moments in the classroom and a uniform that wasnt entirely white. Maybe makeup will reappear in my future, somewhere right about the point something called free time appears again.. :chuckle
