    The increase in staff taking a day off sick would go up by a significant amount.

    My relative attractiveness would go up significantly (I rarely wear make-up due to sensitive skin).

    Other than that, I think many girls my age or younger (21) would just not leave the house for a day. Some women would love it, some would want to see what their friends looked like without make-up, some would hide, some would make a joke of it and wear fake moustaches, and the cosmetics industry would lose millions.

    Nothing would happen to me... I don't wear makeup. On the other hand, a lot of my friends would be in hysteria :rolleyes:

    Also some people you know might look 'different' and some would try to get their hands on makeup any way they could... (Not everyone though)

    There would end up being a feminist protest about how the government are taking away woman's rights?

      Wouldn't affect me. So long as I don't have any spots that day.

        No, it wouldn't, it's only one day and people aren't prevented from buying make up, are they?

        I reckon the approximate volume of make-up not applied during that day (thus available for another day) runs into several tonnes.

        Riots on the street. Feminists would go crazy. The person who decided it would be hunted down. School attendance would drop. Work attendance would drop.

        Well, many people would be concerned that I'd be about to pass out. Many people would be concerned for widespread illness in the female population, because as soon as I walk out the door without makeup, I look tired and ill (which I usually am!)

        Lots of car crashes, planes crashing into buildings. Lots of relationships breaking up when the boyfriend sees what his wife really looks like. :lol:
