Am I rude for not wearing makeup? Have I really been so competely clueless?
Of course you're not. This whole sexist thing about women having to "look good" for men is nonsense. Nonsense, I tell you!!
That said, I've never worn makeup, whether to work or to go out. When I tell people this, they always say, "But you don't need it; you have lovely skin!" Um, yeah, have you heard of LOGIC? I have good skin genes, but I'm sure the fact that I've allowed my skin to breathe without clogging it up with cr*p for the last 25 years (I'm 37 and have no discernible wrinkles) also has something to do with it!
I have dark circles under my eyes, but they're not caused by anything I've done or not done; they're genetic. If you look at pictures of me as a baby you can see them. I've just never worried about it, and because of this no one else has.
The last time I wore makeup at all was for my brother's wedding... four years ago. Guess what the first thing was that I did when I got home after the reception? Rushed into the bathroom and got it OFF me!
