Makeup or No Makeup that is the Question

I went to a party this evening at a Smokehouse and Tavern. I have to say, I think tonight was the first time I have ever been inside a Tavern. I've been to a nightclub twice and I've been to a bar once. Yeah, you could say I'm a real party animal. Anyway, I was getting ready to go out tonight and Forrest was sitting on the tub watching me put on makeup. After I was finished, I turned to him and asked him how I looked. He gave me a shy smile and in the sweetest voice you have ever heard he told me that I looked better.
Better? Better than what?
Now I must admit, I am not a makeup kind of gal. I hardly ever wear it. I have never felt that I just had to have it on in order to be presentable to the public, so his comment sort of took me off guard. Does makeup really make people look better. I thought about that for a moment and decided that obviously it does, or else it would not be a multi-billion dollar industry. I then began to think how sad it is that we were not just satisfied with our own natural beauty. Now don't get me wrong, I certainly do not feel that I would win a beauty prize, but I also don't think of myself as ugly. And do I really need makeup to make myself look better? I don't know. But Forrest and Nathan both agreed that I looked pretty tonight, and make up or no makeup, that made this hot momma feel pretty darn good about herself. I guess I could just let you all decided if you think makeup makes me look BETTER.


No Makeup

You're really pretty--with or without makeup. And I'm not just being diplomatic, I mean it.

Agreed with Leah- you look great in both photos. I never used to wear make up but once I hit 45 I started using a bit here and there..and now I KNOW it definitely makes me look better (I think, I hope!) Makes me feel better anyway.

I like both pictures.

Funny thing - my mother never wears makeup, and my sister very, very rarely, but I do every day. I think at this point I'm just so used to doing it as part of my routine that I feel naked without it!
