    Well ladies I would just like to say, as a chappy, I much prefer a lady au naturale, looking and smelling fresh from the shower

    Ha! Most men say that. They don't like (neither do I) the "made-up" look. It takes a lot of work to get a lady looking fresh au naturale. Our secret is that you don't usually realize how much work it takes!! Seriously, the natural look can take some time.

    I wish I could wear a face full of makeup and pull it off. The women in my family just seem to look better without it. You're not selling out. I think whatever makes you feel good at the moment is what you should do. You may go barefaced from time to time again. Sometimes we just need a change of pace.

    I have one aunt who usually makes her face up daily. She looks like the rest of us only more gorgeous. One day she did my makeup for me and I was like "wow" I didn't want to wash my face. Alas, I tried on my own and looked like a clown. So from then on, whenever I needed to wear makeup I let someone else do it for me.

    I love looking at women who wear makeup well. They look soooo pretty. It really is an art.

    I don't like to spend all that time on myself putting on make-up, so I use moisturizer (natural part of washing, really), mascara, and that new stuff that stays on your lips for two days.

    My mom wears way too much make-up and it's way too dark.

    I've always done mine, if I wore it at all, understated.

    I did go on line and look up how to apply makeup if you're over 45 and learned two things: no liquid foundation and less is more. So I'm using a powdery foundation and very neutral colors. Looks good and it's not heavy, the way I remember makeup being in my younger days. Maybe that heaviness was the liquid foundation.

    Question about foundation: do you put it just on the face or on the neck also?

    just carry on brushing down under your jawline/chin lightly into your neck so you dont get the stops dead orange jaw edge look

    and try and make sure you got lots of light cos what looks great in front of a house mirror can scare the beejebus out of you when you catch a glimps in your rear view mirror as you get in the car in daylight.

    I keep my tresses trimmed, and my eyebrows waxed and a nice colored lip tint on

    i found that less is better as you get older (in this system ) that usually does it for me.
