Women that wear too much makeup at our age....Page 17 of 22    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22)

Oh, and btw, as one who's rapidly transitioning from salt and pepper to silver, I find a woman who proudly displays her own natural color, grey or not, sexy at any age.

Oh thank goodness...hope there are others who think the same...I have silver coming in more and more these days and frankly, I'm too lazy(?) to deal with what it takes to keep it from showing.

ladyc4 is correct....ageism in the workplace pushes us to do some things we would rather not do, but if the choice is losing a job/pension, well, then, I'll do whatever.....

Apart from the health concerns (of the carcinogenic chemicals passing through the skin), make-up is fine

IF

it's invisible.

Too often, esp down here in SA, the make-up is so bad it's distracting, too thick, curdling, the eyelash thickener/lengthener is crumbling off, the transition in color and texture from face to neck and ears is very obvious. Is her natural skin so bad that (she thinks) this mess looks better?

I think at our age we all need a little help. Mostly moisterizers and lip gloss but when I go out I do wear a little bit. I still use the indian earth bronzer from the 90s works best and doesnt cake. Its all in the brush / application too much of anything is bad no matter what it is.

Some lipsticks with the red dye had been associated with cancer I want to say it was r*vl*n but Im not too sure.

I just do not see women wear make-up that is so obvious. Most everyone I know wears natural colors and it is hard not to be able to match your skin tone for your foundation if you have any clue at all. I think it is huge to go light on the powder so it does not migrate into your fine lines.

Appearance does matter in the work place and in real life. Everyone needs to do what they feel confident with.

I don't personally think makeup is bad but I do know that the older we get the less we should wear, I mean we can wear it lightly as I noticed too much or too dark gives the clown look and why some women don't see that boggles my mind. I just don't want to find half my face glued to the pillow the next morning and wonder why my bf ran for the Hills

young women, old women, whatever...

you can still look like a CLOWN

just a young CLOWN or an OLD CLOWN

I would submit that the older a woman becomes, she should have learned a thing or two about what TRULY is APPROPRIATE and things that "work well" whether :

Makeup, colors, use, methodolgies, application

Style of Clothing,

Style of Hair.

Length of Hair

Color of clothing.

Length of skirts/dresses

Height of Heels/boots
(come on, what's with 5 inch platforms on a 45 year old ?)

Style of purses/handbags

(come on what's with the glitter, huge dancerbags and bangle on a 45-50 year old smart and mature woman ? )



Surely......SURELY women have to know better

I see nothing inappropriate about someone my age wearing platforms, large handbags, bangles or even glitter. Those things are fun and many of us in our 40's and 50's still love having fun and being creative with our appearance. Sorry, but looking matronly is not for me!

I think the reason I have good and healthy skin today is because I have never worn make up in all my life..Eye liner,Lip liner, and my lip gloss and im done. Works for me.


Sweetie eye liner.lip liner.lip gloss,,,>>>>>>>>IS MAKE-UP. so don't be saying that you never wear make-up of course you do!!!!

Nothing worse than a woman who looks like she had a rear accident with a Mary Kay Cosmetics Delivery truck.

Worse than the make up is the ones that need to show the cleavage or mini skirts and expect to be treated with respect. Be comfortable in your real and own skin, thats what is most attractive to me. Some of the most beautiful women i have ever met or seen have no or limited make up.

Makeup is great for enhancing the beauty we already have. I am all for looking natural, but sometimes I think it's great to play with colour and bring out certain features. My eyes and my lips are my favourite features to emphasize. Choose the best colours that suit your complexion (and mood) and enjoy! Makeup is art.

I think it's funny: men complain they don't like women wearing make-up, however when women wear absolutely none men complain these same women are either lazy or not feminine enough. Fess up guys, you know it's true. The key with make-up is judicious and appropriate use. For example, sunblock and chapstick for a day of mountain biking, smoky eyes and lipstick for an evening at the Pantages.

a good dose of the mid forty somethings grew up with 'Glam Bands' that wore too much make up
Poison,
Motley Crue
Cinderella
Twisted Sister
and for you older than that... KISS

If your gal looks like she belongs in one of those videos, or bands... at our age - it is too much

I wear cosmetics. If I do not, I am told that I look ill. Even my own mother told me to get it on before going anywhere. I also sell cosmetics,and in addition to covering baggy eyes I also work on clients with black ones, malignancies, accidents, and congenital defects.

Who are we to decide who wears cosmetics? If on told a man what shirt to wear, he'd ignore the critics.

Too much make up is a total turn off. And all the men I have talked to about this say the same thing.

I will also add if you wear the old lady stinkie stuff, no different. You know what I mean. God it gags me. I think they wear it to keep men away from them. I really do.

Use make up lightly ladies. We want to see you , not a red and blue person.

I like light makeup, most in my age range are the same way. We women USUALLY know what looks best on us.

The same could be said for men as well thought - get rid of the comb-over, trim the nose hairs, ear hairs and eyebrows, get rid of the god awful stinky aftershave, get rid of the uniform of ill fitting jeans, ball caps and too tight shirts. And spring for some new clothes once in awhile - including underwear and socks. Update your glasses. Nothing worse that droopy drawers, not shaved, bald guy with a ponytail. Yuk.

I am close to that age and have worn makeup every day since age 14. I have had no cosmetic surgery nor do I plan to but I still turn heads for the right reasons...tried going without my warpaint once but the screaming children and villagers with pitchforks were too distracting.

So, I guess it is warpaint until I die and even then my tombstone will read,

Here Lies Maybelline. She was a Cover Girl.
