I would have started a poll but I can't see how to do that.
My daughter has just asked why I don't wear any make up,
It's uncomfortable, makes my face itch, makes me look very odd and I can't do it myself and look like anything other than a clown but my husband says it's because I'm autistic, what do you think?
I wear minimal makeup for work, though I only do that as I feel I have to make the effort. Outside of work I don’t wear it at all unless it is a special occasion. I can make a single foundation last 9…
Could easily be a sensory issue. I like wearing make-up, though - and I'm a male!
I can identify with so much of this. Especially your last paragraph - I can't imagine not putting up a 'front' - dropping the masking. In some sense it seems logical to me to behave as I do with other…
I never wear make up. I feel like others are looking at me funny when I wear it. I also have acne-prone skin and wearing make-up worsens the acne.

many women really dont need it ---- wear as little as possible I say :)
I agree with you. I only put it on for special occasions really.
