    Hey TSR. Okay, so I know most of you will probably think there's no point in wearing makeup to school everyday and that I'm too young or that it's a waste of time. However, I'm 16 (in yr 11) and I already wear makeup to school everyday (BB cream, concealer, eyeliner and mascara) but I feel more comfortable when I wear false lashes (very natural ones ofc) because my eyelashes are so short. I'm not sure if I should since it is quite time consuming. I just wanted to know your opinions on whether or not I should wear them?

    I also have a couple of other questions:
    1) If any of you wear makeup, what age did you start?
    2) Do you guys think it's neccessary to wear makeup to school
    3) What age do you think it's best to wear a full face of makeup
    4) Do you prefer natural or heavy makeup?

    Thanks

    I wouldn't advise you to wear false eyelashes. Not because they don't look nice, because they can! But they're just so damaging to wear regularly and for me at least, I would become to reliant on them.

    1) I started wearing a bit of makeup when I was 12. I think it was clear mascara, tiny bit of eyeliner, and concealer for my under eyes. Oh and lipgloss probably lol.

    2) No, I don't think it's necessary full stop. I enjoy makeup and see it as an art form, but not necessary. If you want to, fine. If you don't, also fine.

    3) I don't think there is age where it is best. I would say put off wearing a full face for as long as possible. But if you want to wear a full face, as long as you look after your skin and are still confident without it, I don't see a problem with it.

    4) I go through phases. Sometimes I like glamorous makeup, sometimes I like natural. I mainly prefer neutral, as it's in between natural and heavy.

    Thank you! And I agree with pretty much everything you said lol

    As a 23 year old I'd say I completely understand. I don't wear make up (full face) regularly. I save that for a night out. I may wear concealer, lippy, mascara from time to time.

    Keep to a good skincare routine and it wouldn't be a problem wearing make up daily. Only thing I would say is keep it very natural in school otherwise it's difficult to see when you make an effort when you go out.

    As for lashes, I wouldn't. You get the whole "in what way are you making an effort when it's a special occasion when you wear them daily" but you also won't look natural. If you have naturally short lashes take advantage. Do a nice cat eye or something with them.

    1) Well when I was twelve in my school where make up wasn't allowed I wore kohl in my waterline. Nothing else though - and was only caught once :cool:

    2) Nope. So many people don't wear make up to 6th form! I wear concealer always, because my under eyes are like purple, and sometimes eye liner and/or mascara.

    3) I wouldn't say there is 'an age'. I know people who were wearing full faces in year 9! And, like I said earlier, there are people who rarely wear it. I'd say, if you're comfortable without it, keep it that way. There are so many societal pressures saying you should wear make up (I recall one website saying "If you think you don't need foundation you are a) 12 or b) lying to yourself" - which I think is a disgraceful message to send to young girls! Basically, do what you want. Your face after all

    4) Personally, natural. I think so many people are naturally pretty and they trick themselves into believing that they're ugly and 'paint themselves pretty', which I actually think is really sad. One of my friends was in a ltr with her boyfriend and never showed him her face without make up...what kind of relationship is that if he can't see your naked face? Nevertheless, they've split up now.

    You are perfectly entitled to wear whatever make up you like. If you feel more confident with falsies, go for it! Just never be afraid to bear your natural face once in a while, and remember: less make up = more sleep, and you can never beat a smile no mater how pretty your face

    1. 14 although I did occasionally wear some mascara and lipgloss at parties from age 12.

    2. No.

    3. Not sure, maybe 16-18?

    4. Depends on the occasion and what I'm wearing.

    I used to wear makeup to school from year 9 but it was quite natural looking (just some concealer, mascara, blusher and clear lipgloss). I'm straight and went to an all girls school so I didn't wear it to impress anyone, I wore it because I had pretty bad skin and it made me feel a bit more confident. If you feel better wearing it then do so however I do second not wearing false lashes everyday due to potential damage to your natural ones; I know a couple of girls it happened to.

    I love false lashes but don't wear them often tbh. However, I have gone through phases where I have worn them quite a lot. I prefer the individual ones to the strip lashes. Also you can sleep in them and things :teeth: However, I apply them underneath my natural lashes - got a certain knack for it :flutter:

    1) Started at 13, it got heavier and heavier :nothing: And then I turned into an orange :indiff:
    2) I wouldn't say that it was necessary but if you have the time and aren't running late then it definitely doesn't hurt
    3) No age tbh. Although I think that ageing skin probably needs a heavier foundation :ninjagiril:
    4) I love porn star makeup :daydreaming: Or red lips :kiss:

    If it makes you feel comfortable then wear it!

    I started wearing makeup when I was 13, only eyeshadow and lipstick though. Now I only wear bottom eyeliner and lipstick everyday. I prefer natural makeup on casual days but if there's any events then heavy makeup.

    As someone said above I wouldn't wear false lashes everyday as they can be damaging I've never actually worn them because the glue scares me :nooo:

    1) I think I started wearing makeup on/off when I was 14. I wore it a lot at 15, in year 10, but by year 11 I couldn't be bothered anymore.

    2) I don't think it's necessary nah. I would wear it near enough every day in year 10 and I was just tired due to waking up earlier to do it and nobody really commented on it etc. When I got to year 11 I'd wear it very occasionally and felt better about that.

    3) I'd say 16+

    4) I like both for different occasions. I usually go natural because it's easier and quicker, as well as being more suitable for all occasions. But I do love the heavy look.

    1) I started wearing make-up when I was eleven, but I was only allowed to wear lip gloss (my lips were constantly drowning in pools of sticky, neon pink gunge!) and occasionally foundation.

    2) I honestly don't mind whether people like to wear make-up to school all the time; I do so, but limit myself to foundation (which, if it wasn't for my spots, I wouldn't bother wearing at all), Vaseline and a bit of mascara. However, I do recoil in horror if I ever see girls who pile on foundation - I've had nightmares in Maths whenever some girls, or should I say their spider leg-like eyelashes, have glanced in my direction!

    3) 15 onwards is perhaps alright, but I think that the TOWIE wannabe look should be restricted to 16 and up.

    4) Usually, I just wear foundation (Bare Minerals), a bit of eyeliner/eyeshadow (Mally eyeliners and Bare Minerals eye shadows are amazing) with mascara (Great Lash or Bare Minerals) and nude lipstick (Maybelline in Rosewood Pearl). In my opinion, the natural look is better, but I do like to vamp it up with a darker lipstick or black/brown eyeliner from time to time!

    1) I started around 12-13, before that at my school we weren't allowed it
    2) In my opinion, it's a choice. Its not like you HAVE to wear it, people have different views and if someone doesn't want to wear makeup I would say good for them, and at the same time if they do enjoy makeup then that's fine too!
    3) I'd say whatever age you feel comfortable with but to be honest I don't like seeing it on anyone under 16 as it makes them look a bit ridiculous, like they're trying to impress boys and stuff when they should just be enjoying life for now! Just my opinion though.
    4) I usually wear natural makeup but I do like the look heavy makeup! I save heavy for special occasions though.

    About the false lashes, I'd say use extra thick mascara and curl them if you want to try a different way of making them look long

    if you were make up everyday that is totally okay, (who doesnt want to feel good about themselves.) but you have to ask yourself , who are you trying to impress? there may be some hot guys at school but to be fair guys don't really care for make up anyways ( or at least the good guys that wont relationships don't care for too much make up, they care about personality) guys who like you wearing lots of make up are usually the guys that aren't datable, they only care for one things. :K:
    however wearing make up is great but just let your skin rest and maybe only were full on make up when you go out or to parties that way people will notice how amazing you look with great make up and not just everyday makeup.
    its all about personal preference so don't let anybody tell you what to do and whats right and whats wrong. you do what you want and tell them where to shove it if they dont like it.
