My kid asked me a question today

Illustration for article titled My kid asked me a question today

And I couldn't really come up with an answer that satisfied me. We were walking and he pops out with, "Mommy, why do you wear make-up?" And about the best I could really come up with was the realization that I don't really know why I wear it, except that it's expected of a professional grown-up lady. And occasionally, I have a day (like today) when the stars align or something and I feel like it actually looks pretty damn good and helps me feel pretty. Prettier than I would have been without it. But most of the time, I don't really feel like it actually makes much difference. If I'm not feeling pretty on a given day, adding make-up is not going to change that much. So, really, why do I wear it?
