Has anyone told you that you are wearing too much make-up?

I saw this question posed on and adapted it into a poll.

Personally, nobody has ever told me that I wear too much make up, but at my workplace, hardly anyone puts on any decent make up. The most the others use is foundation and some lipstick, that's all.

On days when I just go to work with only a clear face, some co-workers do ask "Oh you are not wearing make up today?" (Like duh....)

im very conscious of my scars, im more comfortable wearing too much make up than not enough. Ive been told not to wear so much, that i have nice skin, but thats just the make up doing its job. id love to leave the house without make up :)

My mom used to say that when I was in high school. All. the. time. Then, I went on to a hippie college and wore very little makeup for years. So, then it became "aren't you going to put some makeup on?" :rotfl:

I don't think anyone has ever told me that, but I saw the facial expression of this friend I used to have as I was putting on some dark lipstick and it was sort of disgust! I was in shock and she really did not have to say much. Nowadays, I am my own best judge and I try and ask several people if they think I am wearing too much make-up. When I described to my sister my whole entire make-up routine she was shocked: she didn't really think I wore that much AT ALL. I guess I have a way of still making it seem subdued. :)

One time when I was 16 and didn't wear make up period but decided one day I wanted to wear eye liner, you know how you line the inside of your bottom part of your mom goes, 'um lookin' a little hookerish there!' It was so subtle it was just crazy but my mom was so use to seeing me with nothing on :oy: other than that, no.

Not as a part of my real life! However, I do occasionally have to wear stage makeup. But since it's so obviously for "on stage" no one has ever commented on it. Now my DH, OTOH, is of the opinion that any makeup is too much. Love him, mean it, but HELLO! This is such a guy thing!!!

My dad but that doesn't count because even when I wear only lipgloss and bronzer, he would tell me I wear too much make up! >:(

:ROTFL: hvanness and sully! I have not been told that my makeup has been too much; I'm more of a critic of myself about that. I do use makeup more for fun than everyday use, so sometimes I do a very dramatic eye... but not at the same time as a lot of lipstick, unless I'm going for an interesting look. But no, nobody would probably ever tell me. I think people are just shocked that I actually do wear makeup :P

Um, Scully, you look stunned.. I mean, stunning. When you get off work tonight, and after you count up your tips in your thong, give me a call and I'll go to the Dollar Store with you to get some more Electric Blue eyeshadow. ;)

Not usually - but my friend/boy James always hates on my makeup. He must tell me "You wear too much makeup" at least three times a day, even when I'M NOT WEARING ANY. Also, I quite often ask him whether I'm wearing makeup, and he's only gotten it right two or three times. Out of, like, a hundred. So it's more that he's anti-makeup than that I wear too much, because he can't actually tell the difference.

No, but I'm sure there have been times... I can certainly think of a photo of myself where I had done up my mouth eyes and cheeks instead of focusing on one or two features.

when i was in college there was a girl that was constantly telling me and a friend that we wore to much makes up and asking if we were insecure. finally at a graduation party i saw her and she was all made up and looked so cute. then she said she was over her granola girl days and that her ex bf had been very against makeup. now days people notice when i wear any, although i'm trying to make more of an effort. i just like how my skin feels w/o makeup and i don't work so there you go.

Not that I can remember! Maybe something similiar to Wren where my mom or sis would have said I'd gone a little heavy on the bronzer, but other then that I don't think so!
