    Default Do wear make up everyday

    I have never been one to wear make up except for nights out, I only have the bare minimum of make up kits. I did try using bb cream and lip gloss for a while but then just went back to normal moisturiser but I have started noticing more and more women who have at least some make up during the day and when I look in the mirror I have been thinking maybe I should put in more effort. How many of you wear some kind of make up every day?

    Nope. Unless i desperately need a bit of a pick me up in which case i put a bit of mascara on. But generally no, i dont wear it every day. I honestly dont see the point. And to be totally truthful, I dont want my kids growing up thinking they need make up to look nice. When I was working i started wearing it every day but got over it in about a week lol. It was a very casual work place though (think jeans, sneakers and a singlet or shirt).

    I wear the basics every day. Light foundation to even out my skin tone and make me less pale. Blush, mascara and tinted lip gloss. I also have to draw my eyebrows in to make them darker if I haven't been able to get them tinted for a while..It makes me feel fresher as I am naturally quite pale and red around the nose area. Takes me 10mins in the morning. I do wish I could get away with nothing and if you feel you can then don't feel pressure to do what anyone else is doing. Why add more complications or things to do if it hasn't worried you yet. But if it makes you yourself feel better than go for it. I don't think you ever "have" to make more effort.

    I generally do, but my look is pretty minimal - light foundation (I won't wear anything heavy), concealer for dark eye circles, a little blush and some mascara on the top lashes only.

    I'll often not worry about mascara on weekends when I'm being casual.

    On the rare occasion I do something fancy or go out at night, I'll add some eyeliner and eye shadow.

    I am without any make up more often than not but if I want to wear a little something then I use Dermalogica tinted moisturiser and some lip gloss.

    No. The older I get the less I seem to wear makeup! I have really sensitive skin so there's no way I could wear it everyday even if I wanted to. The 'natural' brands make my skin flare just as badly as the chemical laden ones. If I look in the mirror and feel I'm looking particularly tired I'll put some mascara on my top lashes. That might happen a couple of days each week. I usually wear BB cream (if my skin is up to it) and some eye makeup to church. The only time I wear blush and lipstick is if I'm going out somewhere nice.

    Default Do wear make up everyday

    Yes I do, if I'm at home I skip the foundation though.

    If I'm going out anywhere at all I wear moisturiser, foundation, concealer, powder, eye shadow, brow pencil, eye liner, mascara, blush or bronzer and a nude lipstick or tinted lip balm.

    It sounds like a lot but it doesn't look heavy at all, just makes me look awake and "fresh", otherwise people think I'm extremely sleep deprived or sick when I'm neither, I just look that way Lol.

    Takes 15 minutes to apply.

    Yep! Unless I'm at home unseen all day- I hate my blotchy skin dark circles and general overall look without makeup- with it I just feel more confidence/normality.

    No I don't. I used to wear the bb cream for a while but i got lazy and stopped. I am really bad at choosing colours so I tend to shy away from wearing much unless I am going somewhere special.
