Changing Your Appearance To Please Your Family

Do You Change Your Beauty Routine When You're Around Your Family?

There's a good chance that you've been spending more time with relatives lately, and with family gatherings often come alterations in the way we conduct ourselves. Especially with outward appearances, people have a tendency to self-edit when they're around Eagle-Eyed Grandpa or Judgmental Aunt Margaux —I know I do. Days with family can be a time to relax out of the lengthy beauty routine we follow the rest of the year, or a chance to look our prim and proper best. So my question is, have you been changing your beauty routine for your family, whether by wearing less makeup and keeping your look casual or by making sure that your hair looks perfect and your face made up to a T? And do you like it, or do you resent the pressure to look different than you normally do?

I don't wear makeup or go for the natural look as they prefer we didn't wear any. :shrug: Eyeliner is as bold as it gets.

I'm with some of the others, I usually don't wear makeup around my family. I also am more prone to dress more casually around them.

I'm with mommahello, I generally don't wear makeup around my family. I also am more prone to wear sweats around them. That's the good thing about family - they still love you no matter how gross you look haha.

I find myself in less low-cut tops around the older generation but I don't change my routine for my parents and aunts.
