・Just like washing your face in the morning or changing your clothes, makeup is also part of your personal appearance (40s) ・Since I was 20 years old, my mother has told me, “When you grow up, it’s good manners to wear makeup.” That’s what I was taught, and I think so too. For example, when I go to lunch at a hotel or to a fancy place, I feel disappointed when I see someone without makeup. (50s and up) – I think it’s good manners for adults to maintain their appearance to a certain extent, so I wear makeup. I use things that save time, such as liquid foundation. (30’s) – My family says that it’s adult etiquette to wear makeup properly, so I wear makeup when I go out even if it’s a hassle. (30s) – Honestly, I’d like a world where people are allowed to wear no makeup. There is an impression that you can’t wear makeup because you’re a woman, and even at work, makeup is compulsory. (30s) – I don’t wear foundation when I’m relaxing at home. Basically, I don’t want to wear anything on my off days. So when I go out, I only think about the minimum manners. (Forties)

・We live in a world where it is natural for working people to wear makeup. But if I don’t have to do it, it’s really troublesome and expensive, so if I don’t have to do it, I don’t want to do it. The minimum level for stains and anti-aging is good. (Forties)
・As we age, we get more dark spots and it becomes unseemly if we don’t apply base makeup. It is customary to greet mom friends and neighbors when dropping off children at school, so wear makeup as a courtesy. (Forties)

・For me, the reason I wear makeup is because it’s my manners and appearance as an adult. The reason is that I think it would be rude to wear no makeup because of my age (I’m in my 50s and up).

self-esteem, but after receiving compliments on my appearance, I did it in various ways.

When we surveyed 165 people on the theme of “What is your reason for wearing makeup?”, 28.0% of the respondents answered “It’s good manners as an adult.”
Regarding the first place answer, “It’s good manners as an adult,” there were other reasons such as “It’s a natural part of being out in society,” and “I don’t want to make other people uncomfortable,” but “I don’t really want to wear makeup.” It was interesting to hear that some people said that they only wear make-up as a courtesy to others and as manners.
Other reasons such as wanting to have self-confidence, wanting to cover complexes, and wanting to look beautiful were motivated by makeup, such as, “By wearing makeup, I gain self-confidence and it acts as an on/off switch.” I found out that it was a change in mood and mood.
There are days when you don’t want to wear makeup, days when you want to enjoy makeup, and days when you have to wear makeup even though you don’t want to, but I hope you can make your makeup time more in line with your mood by using time-saving makeup and heavy-duty makeup. — At Sheer Co., Ltd., in order to deliver real information to society as “beauty information that you really want to know,” we regularly conduct questionnaire surveys and disseminate the results to society. ■About Sheer Co., Ltd.
