Re: DO YOU GO OUT WITHOUT MAKEUP

[ Edited ]

To run errands I am down to the bare minimum.  Foundation/tinted moisturizer to cover redness, my skin will actually be more irritated without it (thank you rosacea - sigh).  Brows and lip gloss.  Honestly, what people think of me when I'm out running errands I just don't care about.  It's not even on my radar.  As long as I don't look like some crazy insane bag lady I'm good.

 

Sales clerks don't care, they barely "see" you anyhow.  And they aren't going to remember you 2 minutes after you leave the checkout counter.

 

Even going out with my husband I don't wear much.  Very light blush and sometimes eye shadow and liner but it's a chore to do and I'd rather skip it.

Re: DO YOU GO OUT WITHOUT MAKEUP

No - I have too much fun playing with it!

 

In the summer sometimes I stick to the essentials for me - tinted moisturizer, mascara, brow gel, and lip gloss. 

 

We went on a trip once and I realized my makeup case was sitting in the middle of our kitchen table! It was a small town, and the only place I could buy anything the next day was the drugstore. It was not fun! We were there for a long holiday weekend. I bought eyeshadow, brow pencil, and blush. I had my "emergency" lipstick in my bag with me, along with a travel size version of Mally's Face Defender, some hand cream, and mints! Definitely don't want to do that again! Smiley Wink

@QVCkitty1 - When I first started with QVC this is what Laura Geller used to talk about too - a little B&B, a little lipstick, and huge sunglasses! Smiley Wink

Yep - completely.

Meaning, only (non-tinted) moisturizer with SPF and (non-tinted) SPF lip balm .

 

That would be always when I'm home, and often when I'm out.

If I'll be out for any reason, sometimes I'll add a bit of brow stuff, blush, and a lippie (clear or colored).

 

I really don't care what others think; being authentic to myself is most important.

And it's really freeing.

 

Like you I'm also super fair, so just the above gives me 'something' LOL.

I wear eyeglasses full-time, and they seem to also help.

 

I can definitely tell you that your skin will thank you for allowing it to 'breathe' more while still protected.

And I bet you look more youthful.

rarely-maybe grocery or gas station--always wear makeup when out!

Sometimes I do and it never fails, I run into someone I know.   Think I would learn.

Re: DO YOU GO OUT WITHOUT MAKEUP

Yep.  I wear a little makeup to work.  If I wear any when not working, it's just a little powder on my cheeks if they are a little red.  I've always used little makeup.

I hardly ever wear make-up. I am 69 and people tell me I look like I am in my 50"s. I have good skin (I think it is genetics). My mom had virtually little or no wrinkles when she passed away at 95. My dad had little or no wrinkles when he passed away at 88. I always wear moisturizer and wash my face with the Clarisonic. I use Philosophy Purity and Microdelivery Exfoliating. I wear make-up when I go out with my family but that is the only time. Sometimes, I think make-up makes you look older when you don't apply it correctly.

Re: DO YOU GO OUT WITHOUT MAKEUP

No. I don't go out without some makeup. I always wear sunscreen and/or IT Cosmetics CC cream SPF 50 on my face. I always do my brows no matter what as I have some bare spots that I need to fix. I always wear a lipstick color as I look washed out without it. And I always comb and brush my hair and if I need to I use Toppik or L'Oreal Root coverup to disguise any gray roots or thinning area. It takes a lot of work to look natural!
