    I work from home.... in my PJ's usually! Generally I get dressed when I'm headed to the barn and it's not like the horses care what I look like, I let my hair air dry since it's going to get covered by a helmet anyways. I generally run errands and shop in the way home, sometimes gets me funny looks, especially right now since it's dry, staticky and everyone's shedding so I ended up wearing more horse hair than they are!

    I do get nicely dressed, makeup and all if I'm actually going somewhere. I lost track of time a couple weeks ago and ended up going straight from the barn to a parent-teacher conference in my filthy boots and all. I'm sure I looked lovely after prying up and shoveling frozen manure and then slogging through the mud to dump it for a few hours then riding for an hour or so. Kiddo's teacher kept asking me if I was ok!!!

    I'm with you!

    I love the freedom I have now that I dont' wear makeup. I only ever wear it if i'm going out, and I always forget to wash it off so my eyelashes fall out, yuck!

    Plus, I find my skin in healthier now that it can breathe :]

    Yeah I try to remember to run a damp cloth over my face as a last resort but it doesn't always happen. I keep baby wipes by the bed and use those instead. It's easier than soaping up my face and taking a long time making sure it's all off. Luckily I don't have a lot of places to go that require the use of make up.

    My hair is naturally VERY curly, so it took me close to an hour and half to completely straighten it back when I was in high school. That's not including the time it took to do my makeup. I used to a shower the night before, let it air dry, straighten it, got to sleep, wake up and straighten it again for about 10 minutes, then makeup time. I hated every minute of it, but I prefer straight hair over curly.
    I went through a goth stage where I'd wear lots of dark eyeliner, and that lasted about a year. The last to years of high school I only wore concealer and mascara, but I still straightened my hair.
    Now I could careless about my hair. I discovered hair gel. Wake up, shower, hair gel. Lol I still don't like it, but the horses could careless. I still straighten my hair if I'm going out, but it's maybe once a week at most. My hair is so much healthier now because of it though.

    I am in 8th grade. EVERYONE wears make-up. And boy did I glob that stuff all over my face. But then I got so tired of people saying "you look orange" or "You look like a ghost"...i just stopped putting it on. All I did was wipe some mascara on and that was it. It was nice because I didnt have to worry anymore about when I was going to throw another layer of makeup on. Until...My friend came up to me one day and says "You look bad, you need some makeup". I felt like crying:( So I am kinda stuck now. I would really rather not wear any, but my face just broke out:(( Advice??

    A light powder concealer maybe? I have tons and tons of concealers in my make up bag and I'd dot the dots and then put a think powder coat over them but I'm not a make up artist and it always looked rather messy.

    I am so with you on that one!! Being a Mom myself...I have run to school activities from the barn not thinking that I have hair on my clothes or hay stuck in my hair ..lol I don't work from home so I am forced to get dressed in the morning but my hair often goes up in a ponytail !
    Also guilty of riding in my good jeans right after work....I still wear makeup but not anywhere close to the routine when I was in my early twenties...lol I am so busy, I just don't want to spend the extra time on all the fuss. Now when I have to , I will do my hair , make up etc...or if my hubby and I have a dinner date (but that hasnt happened in months) def long over due I think

    I was a weird one. I never wore any make up until I turned seventeen. Even then, it was just mascara and eyeliner.

    I still have a uberly hard time going out in public without mascara or eyeliner, but I put it on everyday, mostly. I wear some eye shadow if it's a fancy dinner, but never been one for loads of cover up.
    Hair, I usually just air dry. If I'm going out, I might break out the hair dryer and straightener, but that's pretty rare, too.

    Mascara and eyeliner... They are my weaknesses. I look who I always look - ready to go to town is how I look when I'm at the barn - unless I throw on some eye shade. I dunno if that's good or bad. LOL

    I'm not going to lie, I love makeup! Lol I used to feel (like you said) that you always had to have it on.... but now that I'm older and more mature I've been trying to not wear so much eye stuff (don't wear coverup). It just feels more natural to not have to worry about puttting it on. However, it is still fun to get all put together and dressy and spend time doing my face lol. I own SOOOO much makeup, nail polish, glittery stuff, ect that it's more of a collection than it is useful lol.
