In recent months, the #nomakeup movement has been trending, thanks to an article penned by Alicia Keys, who has sworn off makeup to encourage realistic female beauty standards. For this week’s edition of the DoubleX Gabfest Slate Plus bonus segment, hosts Hanna Rosin, June Thomas, and Noreen Malone their own approaches to makeup both in and out of the office, as well as how they approach the topic as modern-day feminists.

What do they think about men wearing makeup? What about high schoolers when they’re just beginning to wear makeup? And do we judge women in the workplace differently when they don’t wear makeup?
