    Default I’ve made a big decision...

    ...while I’m not leaving the house I have decided I no longer need to wear makeup every day I have always worn it, since I was about 14 but I’m fast running out mascara and I want make it last as long as possible.

    I’ve asked my family to support me in this and to stop asking if I’m ill because I look so pale

    Good luck with that Mouse......I don't wear a lot of make-up anyway just a bit of foundation and magic eye cream to hide the dark circles so not too worried about that more concerned about the grey hair coming through

    good luck everyone!


    I've never really worn make up, and when we moved ( almost 9 yrs ago now! ) I decided to stop dyeing my hair and its been great! - yes, i'm rather white now, but that's me!

    I might be prepared to try the no makeup look, but I don't think I'm ready for the grey hair look!

    I bought hair dye on my last trip out to the supermarket. I'm holding off using it for as long as possible, but I won't be grey when I emerge from hibernation!

    My roots desperately need attention but I reckon hardly anyone’s going to see me anyhow! My hair is tied back constantly at the moment , I just feel when it’s down , long and wafting about it might catch onto more germs , probably overkill I know. ..... I only usually wear makeup in the day if my rosacea is bad so this won’t make much difference.
    Ohs hair is completely white has been for many years even though he’s in his 40s . Ds reckons if he has to isolate he should take the opportunity to try dying it!

    Well, I lasted 1 day without wearing makeup!

    Every time I caught sight of myself in a mirror I had to do a double take because it didn't look like me

    Why not try less make up rather than none Mouse.i used to wear foundation all the time but haven't for years and can’t bare it now.i do wear mascara on upper lashes but strangely enough not on lower lashes. I too also have rosacea so spend half my life looking red . Given up trying to hide it.
    My hair has never been dyed so the greying doesn’t bother me.

    I only started to colour my hair after the grey starting coming through, in my head I am only 40 but in reality I am 50+ I don't won't the real world to realise quite how old I am
