Should I wear make-up or not?

It’s a personal choice whether you do or do not wear make-up.

Make-up isn’t supposed to hide your face. It’s for accentuating and showing off the nice things about it such as your eyes, your lips, your teeth and your natural rosy cheeks. But make-up is basically used a lot by older women trying to look more like teenagers (minus the spotty moments).

Make-up should be something you use as a bit of fun, or not at all. It’s not compulsory. Lots of people never wear it. Some people only ever wear lipstick. Others only wear make-up on special occasions.
