I hardly ever wear make-up, but I do still dye my hair. I hate the way make-up feels on my skin, which is very sensitive. In the 50's, all my female relatives wore make-up. I began to wear make-up as a teen in the 60's - all pale "Mod" stuff, including false eyelashes! But my eyes are small so eye make-
up smeared - the raccoon look. I went to a freak college in '69, and no one wore make-up.
When I moved back to Boston in '73, I worked in the retail business where you had to wear stockings, pumps and make-up at the job. When I entered the BAC, I didn't need it. I lived on a sailboat, and worked as a draftsman - didn't need it. I'm a writer and filmmaker now - don't need it. If I work as a background extra on a movie I might use tinted moisturizer and lip-gloss. But I mainly moisturize day and night and keep my body clean. There's more to life than looking "sexy" and "youthful" - at 64, I need my body to stay healthy to work
