Sunday Sharing: Question for you

Sunday Sharing is not just for me to blab my thoughts. I think it’s about time I ask the question now, don’t you think? This is a very general makeup related query. I am a firm believer that when I go to work, I want to look presentable – that is, with some makeup on. Most of my colleagues however, do not wear much makeup. In fact, many of them do not wear any makeup at all!


Even when I’m in a tremendous hurry that leaves me no time to apply makeup at home, I will take 10 minutes to apply it once I get to work. I do keep a full set of makeup in my office for days like these. I will put on a tinted moisturiser as a base, concealer to cover up marks, a cream blush, face powder, brow pencil and mascara. When I have extra time, I do put on some eyeshadow (just a single shade will do) and eyeliner before mascara. Oh, not to forget the lippie!

When I ask around at work, my colleagues who do not wear makeup at all tell me that they don’t have to meet with clients, hence, it’s OK for them not to put on makeup. Some frontliners who do meet up with clients wear very minimal makeup too. I observe some wearing only eyeshadow without liner or mascara. Some apply very streaky blush and some just do not care much about their appearance.

Now, what say you? There is no right or wrong, just individual preference – do you think we should take some time in the morning just to apply some lipstick to brighten up the complexion, or do you think it’s OK to go to work bare faced? Please bear in mind I am not talking about young girls born with flawless complexion, rosy cheeks, red lips and thick lashes. Most of those who do not apply makeup are mature enough to have fine lines, eye bags, dark circles and hyperpigmentation.

I would really like to know what you think. You definitely know where I stand, since I am a self professed vainpot. If I may say it, at least, the very least, some colour on the lips will be great.

Now, your turn. Bring it on 🙂
