full on, heavy makeup WILL have adverse effects in the long run. that is why you see hollywood people with such horrible skin. they live in makeup day in and day out. their skin cant breathe and becomes splotchy and awful no matter how expensive their skin treatments are.
you can wear heavy makeup every day if you dont care what you'll like like in 10 years...but if you have any desire to stay looking youthful you will stay away from that kind of stuff as much as possible.
its impossible for skin to be the same after being treated w chemicals day in and day out. its the LONG term that matters in this case. its not some "myth".
I have wore makeup for years and my skin is in great condition. As a matter of fact I am 29 but everyone thinks I am 18-21 y/o...My mother wore make-up everyday for many years when she was working and her skin is fine and she is 63 y/o.
I don't compare my skin to those of White/Black Hollywood actress considering 99% of them look bad because they've abused/or currently abusing alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, excessive partying, and plastic surgery because that stuff will age more than anything. Let's not forget how you eat (and we know African Americans have the "best" diets) and stress matters too.
Also, the lack of sunscreen affects the condition of your too...(yes, we as AA need sunscreen) There are too many factors to determine why someone skin is "Broke out" or "Aged" and you darn sure can't blame it all on make-up! I am mean your face can break out from your bacteria filled cell phone, touching you face after using your computer (which have more bacteria than some toilets)...
