Do you wear make-up on a daily basis?

And what is your routine if you do? I wear it pretty much anytime I go out but the light/"natural" way:

liquid foundation

eyeliner

some light shadow

mascara

sometimes lips (usually light lipstick but on most days it's chapstick)

So the vote seems to be half and half with no make-up slightly leading the way (but one guy voted for no, haha). I thought I wore "light" make-up because I have seen many girls wear very heavy make up but I guess I would be in the moderate category.
I don't know if it makes me superficial or perhaps weak (to succumb to make-up) but deep-down I just love make-up, like how some women love shoes. Make-up gives me that something "extra" even though I look alright without it. And I do agree that when
applied properly, it is enhancement rather than deception.
Thanks for voting, everyone! It seems to be split down the middle. My final words are that you should all continue doing whatever makes you feel good. If you don't like make-up, great! And if you use it, don't be ashamed or defensive.
Not all of us were born with perfect skin and some of us do need make up to cover the scars. And for some, make-up is an art form (Kevyn Aucoin, Bobbi Brown--> absolute geniuses at what they do). The most important thing is to feel good about yourself!

  • i wear nada because I hate having to think about checking it and fixing it, and it's a pain in the ass to carry bag full of makeup around.

    • It's cool that you don't wear any, but I have never had to check my make-up when I'm out, and I don't carry a single piece of make-up with me, anywhere. it's all kept in my bathroom by my sink.

  • I wear makeup usually every day even when I don't go out. But I keep it looking natural:

    concealer (only underneath the eyes and on pimples if I have any)

    foundation (only on top of the concealer underneath of eyes)

    eyeliner (only on the top & I tend to due to cat eyes)

    mascara (only on the top lash)

    powder (to cover up the oily parts of my face)

    as for my lips I prefer chapstick (Soft Lips Brand) or lip gloss

  • everyday - powder & blush

    almost everyday - curled lashes & mascara

    once in a great while - eye shadow & liner (I kinda suck at applying eye make-up though... so I rarely attempt it)

  • I don't wear it on the days I'm not going out, but when I do wear it, I wear tinted moisturizer, a little blush, eyeliner, mascara, and chapstick.

  • I don't wear makeup. I might use some concealer if I breakout, but that's it.

    Honestly, makeup overwhelms me, haha. I wouldn't know what colors to use or the best way to apply it. And with my skin, I just don't feel like it would be a good idea.

  • i wear makeup most of the time, like if I'm going out with friends or at school or work, but if I'm working out (which takes up most of my life), going to the store, or just generally feeling lazy I won't wear any, maybe some mascara if I need a confidence booster.

    when I do wear makeup I wear

    *benefit cosmetics some kinda gorgeous foundation faker (but I hardly wear this, only when my skin is looking particularly unfortunate)

    * eyeliner (if its pencil, then I will put it lightly on top and bottom, but if its liquid, I put thick line on the top and skip the bottome)

    *mascara

    *carmex

    *and really really occasionally blush and bronzer.

  • My natural routine is wearing it all. I cannot imagine daily life without it, especially since my normal skin is a little blotchy, dealing with acne and redness. And as a former model, I've learned many cool technique's of wearing stuff several different ways. My most prominent is eyeliner and mascara as it truly outlines my beautiful hazel eyes (so I've been told many times). Also, I used to do Mary Kay and Avon, so I do know a little more than just something about cosmetics, and I used to do my close pals and help them with color sharing, applications, etc.

  • I only wear mascara on most days, sometimes I add in some light golden & brown eyeshadow, just to enhance my eyes a little bit, but nothing to heavy at all. When I'm going somewhere special, ill put on some liquid e/l, but that's about it. I don't like wearing lipstick, I'm always with lip balm.

  • On usual days I just use bronzer to even out my skin tone and mascara to make my eyes pop.

    On days that I work I add in a little blush and some eye shadow. That's usually it.

  • I always wear some kind of eyemake up because I'm used to having it on and for some reason feel prettier for wearing it, I used to wear heavy foundation because I had bad acne but now don't do that because I don't have any anymore.

  • I only wear make up when I'm not feeling lazy and not in a rush to get ready haha. I usually wear: foundation, eyeliner, mascara and lip balm I guess.. if that counts?

    • That definitely counts. Some people even consider that "heavy" though I think that's in the light/moderate category.

    • Yeah, I used to think it was heavy, but since I started dancing, this is about light-moderate. Stage make up involves EVERYTHING!! to list all that I use for that , its foundation, powder, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, false eyelashes, blush, and finally lipstick!! My light range is usualy just mascara and foundation, which sounds so much better than the stage make up hah

      I like to give my skin a break once in a while and it feels so nice to not wear any make up on your face :

    • Yeah, I'm sure celebs wear even more than you listed. My main three are foundation/concealer, eyeliner and mascara. But I have a ton of products as I'm considering going into the beauty field. I would love to study stage make-up or anything like that. It sounds cool and I love theater and dancing!

  • I always have make up on when in college or out somewhere, but I have natural days as well

    especially when I'm in a rush or feeling like not doing this to my face haha

    and I use:

    mascara

    black eye liner

    foundation

  • I think I got you beat when it comes to minimal make up... mascara and chapstick (haha would I be too conceited to say that my face is pretty enough without it?)

    • Haha, no! Yay for confidence! But that means you must have pretty great skin. My skin is horrid without coverage.

    • Haha, yea I really can't complain, I got pretty lucky :)

    • *shakes fist*

  • I don't always wear make up but it's mainly out of laziness. I work at a comestic counter and after several days of working straight, sometimes I just don't want to touch my face. Also, I mainly wear make up for work and that's when I experiement. Usually for everyday, I wear a lot less make up

  • I wear make up if I go to school/see friends/bf.

    Just mascara, blush and a little foundation around the nose area, and soft lip gloss. If I feel daring I put on a little dark brown eyeliner, that's it. I'm au natural.

    No make up for work...who cares about how you look at a local deli lol.

    I snicker at girls who cake it on or has like rainbow colored eye shadows...:)

  • I hate foundation. I can't stand it, but I don't need it fortunately. I just wear eye liner and eyeshadown and I'm good to go.

    Sometimes I will wear lip gloss, but usually not. I tend to lick it off.

    Hehe.

  • I don't like to wear a lot of make up as it is so I usually just wear mineral foundation and mascara.

    * Going oh-natural is good for your skin!

  • I only wear makeup if I'm leaving the house.

    I just use eyeshadow, mascara, and some sparkly/glitter eyeliner for my top lids.

    Foundation, I dunno. My face isn't a cake, so why cover it all up? :|
