Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Make Up. Yes or No?

Laughing Now back from my party, I did get a lift, need to walk back to get car tomorrow. At the end, a few of us left, bloke a few years older than me, grew up in Wandsworth, didn't have electricity in his house till he was 12. Puts things into perspective. Only one woman was wearing conspicuous amounts of make up. And purple hair. But Roisin has always been a law unto herself.

Sometimes I do, sometimes I dont. Same with running. I often wear a bit on a race day, as I know there will be cameras, so tinted SPF BB cream (factor 20 at least) and waterproof mascara. Plus lip balm.

Seriously though why does anyone care what anyone else has on their face, and why is it almost a competition to be one of those who doesn't wear makeup skiing as if that makes you a real skier. As I said I wear makeup when I run races, does that mean Im not a real runner? Im still running a bloody marathon or whatever Very Happy

It depends on my mood, and if I am up early enough to put some on before the lifts open. In general though due to googles and a muff up to my nose, it tends to be fairly minimal , I can't see how a thread got going on this though, if someone wants to wear make up then it's up to them.

I use Heliocare SPF50 daily (with a slight tint), no matter where I am in the world. It is non-comedogenic, paraben free but contains active mineral ingredients and filters UVA and UVB. I lived in Asia and can tell you that if I had not got into the habit of SPF50 every single day then I'd have a lot of damage now. Add in a bit of mascara and coloured lip gloss and I am ready for any sport, skiiing,netball and running. I wonder if full make-up on professional sportswomen means they might get better sponsorship deals?

Make up, yes.

Lipstick and lashes, no.

I pretty much wear a basic layer every day. Foundation, mascara and blusher. I save the war paint for big nights out though.

Apparently you haven't seen what too much sun does to a person's complexion.

Out here, all the gals wear makeup. And the hairstyle is long and braided. Especially the girls on the High school ski race teams. And so do the older gals. You never know who you might run into on the slopes...Could be your future spouse, or just someone to ski with! Very Happy

For what it's worth, I've just asked my 15yo daughter if she plans to wear make-up whilst we're skiing.

"No, that's like effort"

Gosh... as a father to a teenage daughter, I could say so much on the subject! She used to have lovely English-rose skin, but at age 12, starting applying make-up (it caused a row at the time!). She believes all the ads, ie that it's good for her complexion etc, but I can't see how putting anything on your skin, all day and every day, can be good for it, as it stops it from naturally breathing..? When I now rarely see her without make-up, her once-lovely smooth pale skin is now pink and blotchy, so she puts even more products on, to try to reverse that... so sad!

And while ski-ing, it means she has to get up half-an-hour, or more, before the rest of us, to put it on... and, as pointed out above, on a couple of occasions has burnt her skin in the sun. Again, so sad...

Ditto with her hair by the way, and the need to constantly dye it - which makes it look far worse and in poorer condition, than it was originally, imho...

I, and I think prob most men, much prefer women who don't wear make-up, or very little, at most. I find heavy make-up, esp that trendy orange look, with "enhanced" eyebrows etc, looks awful, and don't really understand why girls and women do it - victims of marketing, maybe? Anyway, that's my two-penny worth on the subject!

@BobinCH, Down due to lockdown and facemasks. Tech investments will make you look way better on a video call than make-up can, though I guess you might then use a little more if you're not filming with a potato. Lipstick was always a “recession busting” product, cheap enough for many to buy but still helps you feel a bit better. Not anymore. No point even wearing lipstick if nobody will see it.
