    Is there any make up you wouldn't wear to work? I ask because I bought a new lipstick and it's red and my friend said I should wear it when I do my intership. :lol: Is she being silly or do you think that's true?

    As long as it flatters you, wear it. There is an art to wearing makeup well. Red lipstick is a nice accent- you have to find the right tone for your skin color. If you don't normally wear makeup, take it slow and go for a more natural look.

    I am trying hard to think of any makeup that I would feel comfortable wearing to work... can't think of any reason.

    Guyliner? It might be me, all my friends think I'm nuts for saying so, but I love a guy in eye liner. *drools*

    I think it probably depends on your school. In my district teachers definately stick to the 'natural' make up look.

    Like czacza said, as long as it flatters and works with your skin tone, ect, then go for it. Applying make up so that you look good, and not like a tropical bird, however, is a learned art. I rarely wear make up, but when I do, it's basically "natural" tones...except for lipstick. I wear a dark raisin shade, then blot it so it's a stain instead of a coat. It's still pretty dark, but I get "wows!!!!!!" from everybody. The color works. What can I say :D.

    Cool. I think I'll wait until a week or so. See what everyone else wears. I try to stick to the norms. I feel like a guest in the school.

    I wouldn't wear a hot red lipstick or any form of eye liner to school. They're just not manly enough for me.

    I wear foundation, mascara, lip gloss and blush everyday of my life. I feel like a slob without it. It is all natural looking and usually pretty much worn off by 3 pm! I wouldn't worry about your makeup too much.

    I'll second that.

    I wore a lot of glitter make-up in college. I try to stay away from that now.

    I wear makeup every day. At this point, I've figured out what looks good on me and that's the makeup I own.

    MM, I think you and I have the same coloring-- lipstick with purple or plum overtones looks much better on me than anything too red.

    And I am absolutely not a fan of "guyliner" or anything close; if you're not in a Broadway play, then I don't like makeup on guys.

    I wear basic cover-up, a bit of a light shimmer eyeshadow, and mascara. Occasionally chapstick. My school has a variety of make-up wearing people, some are done to perfection while some are Au natural.

    I'm a big fan of make-up, and I wear full make-up every day. I wear different colors in different seasons, but that's about it.

    My husband is a musician, so I'm used to "dolled up" guys. Even though he plays country music, he's still has to "dress up" sometimes. Hats, earrings (3), foundation, a little eyeliner, highlighted hair. He used to spend more time getting ready than I did, and he borrow my make-up and hair stuff.

    I don't wear red lipstick to school. I did it once and the kids I was working with (3-5 yr olds) said it looked weird (not in a negative sense..more like "Why are her lips painted red? My mom doesn't paint her lips red..why do her lips look so strange?") things like that..stopped wearing it :). The kids seemed happier and easier to work with when I was "au natural" then all made up...and they were the ones I was trying to impress anyways :)

    I've worn deep burgundy lipstick & red lipstick to work. Also eyeliner lining the top & bottom of my eyes at times w/ mascara. I've also work a smoky eye shadow look. Now that may sound like a lot, but it doens't look overdone.

    I admit I wear a lot of blush, but otherwise I wear natural-looking makeup...a light sweeping of mineral powder, my blush, mascara, Carmex, and sometimes subtle liner and sweep of shadow. I don't think wearing more or less would be inappropriate...heck, if someone wants wants to mimic that Mimi character with wild blue eyeshadow and rocks it as a teacher, I don't care. It may scare the students, but... :p

    I just do my eyes (little bit of eyeshadow, some mascara). That's it. I can't stand the feeling of foundation or powder, don't need blush, and all lip stuff wears off. I do occasionally use a tinted chap stick or almost natural color of lip gloss, but it would be hard to tell that I am wearing it.

    Most of the teachers in the school are along the same lines -- mostly natural looking. Some do a little more than others.
