    Having run out of my Body Shop ginger shampoo I tried adding powdered ginger to ordinary shampoo. Great result - scalp soothing shampoo!

    My beauty tip is. Don’t try to cut your own hair at the back :(.

    No beauty tips, but lipstick is a thing of the past, and earrings and heels are going to hurt when we get out.

    Tip - use lockdown as a time for not wearing make up, deodorant or putting anything on your skin that you don't need to. It will give it a good rest and will reduce the chemicals which are absorbed through the skin.

    Beauty tip: don't put lipstick on before donning a face mask. Just...don't.

    And then don't go back to it afterwards.

    I don't understand make up. People who are wearing make up look as if they're wearing make up. They don't particularly look more or less nice, just made up. So why bother? Especially when it's so bad for your skin.

    I've learned that my skin isn't really any better or worse for not wearing makeup all this time.

    I like to look like I'm wearing make-up. I don't always wear it, but I like it. It's not bad for my skin. My skin is lovely. Live and let live, eh?

    Btw - there's make and there's MAKE UP. I don't go in for that muddy contouring nonsense. Liquid eye-liner and a clean red lipstick for me. It looks nice. French.

    I look better with make-up on. Fact.:)

    My roots are an inch long - haven't seen that colour in years!

    I like to look as if I am not wearing makeup, as if my skin was not blotchy and my eyes not shadowed and my lips not dull. I definitely look better with makeup! It took me a long time to learn how to look natural!

    One of the reasons I married my wife is that she never wears make up. Doesn't need to - has a natural beauty.

    Have I as a man ever found make up attractive? Hand on heart, never.

    Some of us just need a little enhancement - it gives us confidence.

    Hate to break it to you, but I don't think women wear make-up For Men.

    Also men can't often tell the difference between natural and natural make-up.

    I've always thought that kissing someone who is wearing lipstick must be a bit gross. But correct me if I'm wrong.

    Coffeekid I'm sure you have lovely skin. I didn't mean to offend.
