No makeup? Oh, really....?

So I use this face stuff called "Make Up Optional" by Philosophy. It's supposed to make me age more slowly (ha!), and be perfectly happy without make up. Make up is my crutch. I love it and feel quite grown up with it on. But this morning as I washed my face (you rub the soap on dry skin for 30 seconds and then rinse off, put on a cream, then applied a serum (things that sound medical must work better, right?), then applied lotion, and then spot treated places of future wrinkles, added sunscreen, and finally put on Smashbox's photo finisher, when suddenly it hit me. Sure I might be going without make up, but by now I have 6 layers of cosmetics on my face before touching make up. Make Up Optional? I think I should call it flesh optional.



Of course I'm a product junkie and quite addicted to my six layers...

why don't you just wear a burqua? that's a lot of crap to do. I like a natural look on a women and by natural I mean enough makeup to make her look like a prostitute. there's nothing more natural then having to pay for sex ;)

Lol, I love the hooker look. It's right up there with the Baby Spice look. I guess deep down inside I don't let the inner slut out much. :P

That sounds like a lot of work!

I have to wear make up or I'd scare the hell out of everyone that looked out me.At least with make-up they smile.

Perhaps only because I then look like a damn clown,but hey,it cheered them up!

Rebecca - I love it.

I've really hated seeing my birthday loom before me. But the other day a mom at the girl's school asked me how old I was and I told her and she punched me in the arm and said didn't believe me, she thought I was younger.

The sunscreen is the first to not develop into an allergy - Lorac 30spf.

All in all, I've very satified. And it smells nice...
