Why Don't Beauty Editors Wear Lots of Makeup?

Why Don't Beauty Editors Wear Lots of Makeup?

Last night, the launch party for Stylist brought out Gwen Stefani, Anna Sui, Anna Wintour and other fashionable ladies. When I looked at the pictures, I noticed that while Gwen and Anna Sui wore bold red lips, the magazine editors went with barely-there makeup. Both Vogue editor Anna Wintour and Allure editor Linda Wells (shown here) wore light, natural colors.

This is actually typical of most fashion and beauty editors I've known. You'd think that being surrounded by literally hundreds of beauty products would make them go bonkers with the stuff, but instead, they generally rock the natural look. (And for the record, lots of people think I don't wear makeup because it looks understated. Little do they know!) I have my theories as to why editors go for a natural-but-glowing look, but I'm curious: What do you think is behind this phenomenon?
