    Ok, this is really silly question.

    Several years back my Dad was scared I wasn't getting married and I'd be at home forever.

    He encouraged me to start wearing makeup.

    Several people got wowed, but I didn't want to impress them.

    Finally I got married with makeup, clothing, svelt 115lbs, but the person prefered p0rn stars, prostitutes, and was having affair with his married girlfriend.

    Who am I trying to impress when wearing makeup.

    And let's not forget, there is wear-and-tear to your skin everytime you try to remove it (even though it is not water-proof)

    I feel healthy is beautiful. Rather than mask imperfections with makeup, why not take care of health from the inside?

    Even when I stopped wearing makeup for a while my Dad was alarmed, thinking that I am ruining my marriage prospects (in USA, among people here)

    At this point I don't care.

    How do I peacefully tell Dad I don't want to wear makeup without crying and creating drama.

    He is already under enough pain and stress

    To the extent, I wish I can wear a scarve fashioned like a dupatta when I am outside, or around unfamiliar people.

    I mean really.

    I want to help take care of Dad, and when things have some momentum, I'd like to resume hobbies like painting.

    Hi

    It's true maintaing health and inner beauty is important.

    But nothing wrong in being presentable.. This is not to impress others but feel good and confident.

    Am not talking about brushes contour and make ups.

    But simple combed hair, a face cream , a light lipstick would do..

    At this age you can't change your dad's views or opinions. You can just tell heavy make up is spoiling your skin and you feel skin irritation. And you would wear make up when it's time to meet prospect groom..

    Yes, of course

    I keep my hair tidy, use vicco turmeric with olive oil.

    And if I remember, I use light lipstick (I'm a lip chewer)

    Spoke with Dad who said do what makes you happy.

    If you are not happy putting on makeup, don't do it.

    Of course, I'd make myself look presentable to prospect groom :)

    If you have sensitive skin you should avoid makeup . Otherwise a little coloured lip balm and kohl is good, gives you confidence and look fresh . Try natural brands .
