I definitely find that people respond differently when I wear makeup vs. when I don’t have makeup on at work. I feel like my customers think I’m less put together when I don’t have on makeup. I work with an older crowd and they appreciate seeing a pretty made up face with the works. I don’t wear makeup to work everyday and it is something I enjoy wearing, but I enjoy wearing it for myself, not for others.
I will admit I feel a bit more confident with makeup on. It’s like you’re wearing a mask that you can customize each time you go out. Do you want a natural look? A dramatic look? I love the versatility it gives you. However, there are plenty of days that I go without makeup. I feel fine, just plain and barefaced but there’s nothing wrong with that! As much as I love makeup nothing beats a fresh face.
