Moms Without Makeup

The glitz of Hollywood glamour is largely show and that's something we all know, but the other day my jaw hit the floor when I caught a segment on television condemning moms without makeup. Of course, kudos were given to a fistful of women for their God given beauty — Heidi Klum and Jennifer Garner — but that was only after actresses like Marcia Cross were condemned for being too pale on the playground. As a fellow mom, I think the forty-something mother of twins looks rather fabulous bare faced! To see what happened,


Other notables were cited for offenses from lacking luster and not having taken the time to smudge on a smoky eye or pouty lip before heading out. I'm fairly certain those who dared to comment on the appearance of the women weren't parents themselves. Otherwise, they'd know that when in a rush — a mama is more apt to grab a tube of sunscreen than mascara. And, some are lucky just to fit in a shower. Do you make wearing cosmetics a part of your daily routine even when you're hanging out with your offspring?

I wear makeup 90% of the time, but my daily makeup looks like I'm wearing no makeup for the most part. Never anything on my lips as that just smudges up the baby's face :-)

i think its ridiculous for ppl to bother a mother taking her kids to the playground for not wearing makeup. wth? BUT in hollywood, it comes with the territory so im sure they're used to it/will get over it.

A quote from my 10yr old son when I put on makeup "mom, why are you wearing that stinks."

That's so ridiculous. She looks beautiful. Masonsmomma is right, no matter what they do there's always someone criticizing.

And I suppose if all of these Hollywood moms went out dressed to the nines and fully made up, they'd be condemned for being self-centered enough to do that. They can't win either way so might as well do whatever they want.

i don't bother becaue my kids love me just because i'm their mom and not my looks :) i give and get lots of kisses from my little ones, so lip gloss would be messy. i think those people were being silly.

I agree, she does look beautiful. It's women like her and Nicole Kidman, that make pale look beautiful. It's because of them I have never fake baked in my life.

Her dress is amazing. I admire her for staying pale.
