    I think you should do what you are comfortable doing.
    Im pretty "fake" when it comes to looks but that's because I really enjoy looking a certain way. And I enjoy doing the "fake" stuff.
    A lot of mums at school laugh at me and make fun of me behind my back but really it's not about me it's about their own insecurities.
    If they where happy in trackies and no makeup they wouldn't give a toss about how I looked. I dont mind how they look.
    So do what makes you feel good.
    It's not cheating anymore the wearing makeup or colouring hair.
    Its all just a bit of fun. Dont take it to seriously....

    Ok, I actually didn't mean for others. I don't care what anyone else chooses to wear or how they present themselves. What I meant is this is where I draw the line for me. Like if I use makeup it's an enhancement, whereas acrylic nails on me feel too far into being "fake" as do hair extensions.

    I meant for more of a discussion on where everyone else draws the line.

    I don't consider any to far in the way of 'fake' unless you're doing it all at one lol. But even then it might just be for a certain occasion and it's ok.

    For me the line is more financially and time drawn than image

    Spent from my dome. Excuse autocorrect

    Think of it this way - you are wearing it to smooth everything so you can't see your underwear lines....nothing to do with sliming you down

    For me..... I hate the feel of make up, I hate the feel of shape-wear but I am suppose to wear it to help hold my loose skin in place so it doesn't rub and get infected but I still don't wear it. I can't wear stockings and I don't shave.

    I suppose you can say I am as natural as they come.

    Women have been wearing shapewear for a very long time. A long time ago it was corsetry, and not too long ago our grandmothers would have spent a lot of time in gurdles. I'm absolutely fine with shapewear - it's just smoothing you over, it doesn't make a fat woman skinny.

    I think too much fake stuff is not for me. I dislike hair extensions, mostly because I think they look fake. You can usually see where they join the real hair, whether they use beads, tape, glue, clip-ins etc. I'm just not a fan because nothing good looks fake (IMO) when it's OBVIOUSLY fake.

    Same with fake nails. I'm fine with them... to a degree. I'm sure a pic will help illustrate my opinion...

    If you're going with fake french (as everyone seems to)... here's an example of a good job that I'd not be too embarrassed to wear: http://cdn.sheknows.com/articles/201...h_manicure.jpg

    Unfortunately, so many people have one that looks more like this: http://s5.favim.com/orig/54/awesome-...com-530228.jpg

    Yuck, cheap and nasty.

    Fake tans, bras, make-up etc... so good as it's all done well and doesn't look ridiculous, then I don't care what people do... people might as well make themselves look as nice as they can.

    ETA - ON ME... I'm generally a pale-skin fan, but I HAVE had a spray tan before and it looked fine because it was a good brand that does green-based thus you don't look orange.

    Otherwise I'm all about shapewear if the situation calls for it, good bras that do your boobs justice (They don't make push ups in my size). I've never had extentions, I don't really like false nails (not really something I'll ever be able to wear if I get work as a beauty therapist... not so nice to have nails stabbing you during a facial/massage/etc), I I love make-up and would love to oneday have enough to buy a proper good-quality corset to shrink my waistline (I've already chosen the one I want... lol).

    OH - and I LOVE false lashes so long as they're not OTT drag queen style, and only worn on a night out or something... not just to go shopping (though individuals would be fine for that I guess).

    I love putting makeup on a little tan makes me feel better about my body I love getting my nails done an when I do colour my hair or do something different it gives me a bit more confidence... I hardly do any of this anymore but when I do I just feel good about myself.....lol I say if it makes you feel good about yourself then stuff what anybody else thinks

    If you ask my DP anything fake is TOO fake. I really think the very vast majority of men prefer the girl next door look.

    he laughed at me for putting a 'gradual tan' lotion on my glowing white legs and we have a joke now that I'll turn into a dorito.
