what about for "special" events?
if I'm just running to the store and not trying to impress anyone I usually just wear concealer (on undereyes & blemishes) and tinted lip balm. hanging out with girl friends I add mascara (HATE taking it off at night though) and powder foundation. if I'm trying to look pretty I add blush, lipstick/lipgloss (depending on occassion), eyeliner (though I'm horrible at it), sometimes bronzer. I don't really mess with anything else for fear of over-applying or otherwise messing up. I feel like I keep it pretty simple, which I sometimes like about myself and other times feel like a hippie (in a bad way).
what about you?

It depends on the time of year. In the colder months, I'm more likely to take time and contour with eyeshadow, whereas when it's hot I usually won't bother, because it's likely to just melt off my face anyway. So currently, the daily look is translucent powder to absorb shine, and mascara, with some chapstick. If it were any season but summer, I might have some eyeshadow on, or liquid eyeliner on the top lid at the very least. It only varies by the eyes. I don't ever wear foundation, and only use concealer when I REALLY need it, haha. And I don't shy away from color, whether it's my average, every-day look, or something more intense.
So on average, a normal day will look something like this, or less:
I don't really do 'special occasions' makeup. It's either I feel like it, or I don't. Sometimes I'm in the mood for something more elaborate or dramatic than usual, like this:
