Trade Secrets

As I have posted over and over again, I am now wearing eye makeup. I wear it everyday. One of my guy friends informed me that I should NOT be wearing makeup every day, just a couple days a week. And I shouldn't wear it to work. What a joke. I will come right out and admit it. I wear makeup for men. I don't want to be single forever. I think I look perfectly fine without my makeup on but I also know I look better all decked out. I think I need to wear my makeup everyday. And especially at work, cuz lets be serious, I work with doctors. And I want to be looking good enough every day that just in case I meet a guy who looks at my incredibly makeuped eyes and thinks, "I should ask that girl with those great eyes to be my wife". Or at least offer to pay for my dinner. Imagine if I didn't wear my makeup everyday and that one day I were to meet a guy who doesn't even notice cuz I am looking all sorts of blah. And please don't leave a comment saying that I only want a guy who doesn't care what I look like and loves me anyways. Whatever. Does not exist.

So anywhos- back to my trade secrets. So according to this guy, makeup should only be worn a few time a week. He is a moron. But ladies, where do you wear your makeup? I don't go to the gym, but I have to admit, I probably would wear it if I went. I don't put my face on if I am not planning on leaving the house all day. Would you wear it if you were to go to the beach? Boating? Working outside? The gym? At work? Not on weekends? Share your wealth of knowledge with me cuz I have no idea and I am not about to start taking advice from a guy.

Bottom! It was so fun talking to you today and so fun catching up on your blog too! LOVE IT! Can't wait for your next post.

Autumn, this is probably no help to you since: a) I don't work, b) No one ever sees me, and c) I don't wear much when I do.
BUT, I tend to wear makeup every day. Some foundation, mascara and irridescent white-ish eyeshadow (for highlighting). Lip gloss is on all the time. Another weird thing, I don't really wash my face much, so I guess that means I wear my makeup to the gym the next morning by default, right? Don't listen to the one guy who says only wear makeup a few days per week. I mean, what does that mean anyway, Monday/Wednesday/Friday? I'd definitely wear makeup to work too...I get your point for sure! And lastly, you are gorgeous with or without makeup. :) I know you just let that go in one ear and out the other, but hey, I still mean it!

I'm with Jen - I always wear makeup. It's too fun not to (plus I have white eyelashes and I look like a fish with out it)

I remember when you posted this I had a nice long reply, but its late and I've got a long drive ahead so I'm going to try to write what I remember....no, I don't wear make-up to the gyme (in fact I haven't been wearing it since I stopped working), so yes I wear it to work. It helps me feel a little more confident and I think that when I look more put together it helps the patient be more confident in me? Wear what makes you feel good and appreciate your unique features, that is why I think make-up is wonderful. Obviously different kinds for different events, but you are smart and know what I'm trying to say.....
