I have always worn makeup, sometimes heavy, sometimes light, sometimes not at all - and I am an artist - mostly to show up my eyes and to take on a
more professional and polished appearance at work. When playing sports or outdoor activities, I wore hardly any (or none at all), except to accentuate
As an older woman, I still prefer to make up my eyes and lips, because I look less tired and I am still in the working world, hence I prefer to look
somewhat polished and put-together. The key words here are "I prefer" and that is really the crux of the matter here.
However, I did ask my young beautiful daughter why she chooses (keyword) to wear make up. Her reply was along the same lines as mine, in that, when
going to work or into a public situation, she prefers to look less tired and healthier, as she has very light skin and can look very pale. I attempted
to find out if she was less confident in her appearance due to mainstream media's portrayal of what "they" want us to believe beautiful looks like,
but she said that was not the case. Again, some times there is just a simple reason, such as to look less tired.
