I was just at a comestic make-up party last weekend and we discussed the need for make-up. Make-up has it's place in a girl's life if her skin can handle it. Some girls and ladies have naturally flawless skin and look beautiful without makeup, and can survive without it. Other women with skin sensitivities, acne, and age (older women), can use a boost to enhance their appearance. For me, it depends on the ocassion. I must admit though, I always like a little lipgloss no matter the situation. Try mineral make-up for a more natural look and feel. There may be others.
