In The Pursuit of Happiness: ELLE's editor-in-chief on makeup

I loved reading all your comments on makeup over the last few days. Everyone had such great stories, and I enjoyed learning a thing or two. Have you seen this quote from ELLE's editor-in-chief Robbie Myers? In a recent interview with Into The Gloss, the beauty and fashion maven, who "didn't wear a lot of makeup" growing up, talked about one potential side effect of wearing makeup to work...

Here’s the problem with makeup at work, and I tell this to people in my office: if you start wearing makeup when you’re young, you’re going to be wedded to it. You get used to seeing your face that way and then you feel naked without it.

Also interesting was her comparison of younger vs. more senior members of the fashion industry...

It’s interesting -- the fashion business takes women who wear no makeup very seriously, which I think is kind of great. If you look at what you’d call the more "senior" members of the fashion class, they don’t wear a ton of makeup. So... do you have to wear makeup to be taken more seriously? No. It’s just a matter of what your look is and how you feel about it.

What do you think, friends? It's something to think about from someone "on the inside..." xoxo

  1. Well, despite my constant laughter, I must be taken super serious since I never wear a stitch. :)
