This is not at all wedding related, but I am curious. This is inspired by the ‘dare I leave the house with unshaven legs’ post. While I am totally fine with leaving the house looking like a gorilla, I rarely leave the house without makeup. Most of my issue is my very dark undereye circles. I consider my daily routine to be fairly minimal (undereye concealer, tinted moisturizer, blush, mascara), but still wish I had the confidence to skip it more often. Anyone else feel the same way?

I am only in the habbit of putting it on if we are going to see friends, or out to dinner or something like that. Around my husband I don’t really wear it, and I run errands all the time without it. Just some SPF moisturizer and I’m ready. That being said, I also don’t work right now. If I had a job, I’d probably be doing tinted moisturizer and mascara at least.

I usually leave without makeup, apply a little powder and lip gloss on the way to work (there are usually several red stoplights lasting a few minutes each), and that’s it.
Wish I knew how to do makeup, but I always feel it looks silly on me since I’m not doing it right, so I rarely bother.

I used to be fairly lazy about it, but there is something about the whole process I find very relaxing and enjoyable. On a day to day basis I’ll wear eyeliner, mascara and maybe some tinted moisturiser (if even that). Lip balm is a must though, my lips feel horrible otherwise! I’m not sure if lip balm is make-up or not though. I feel like looking after myself better though as of late 🙂 So have been wearing those three things on an ALMOST daily basis, as well as dressing nicer and whatnot. It just feels nice, knowing that you look presentable!

I don’t wear makeup on the weekend unless I’m going to a particular event, ie out to dinner, party, shopping with friends, etc. But if I’m just running errands, or hanging around the neighborhood, I don’t waste time on makeup on the weekend.
I do wear makeup during the week to work but most of the time it’s “make-up lite.” I only wear full makeup with foundation, concealer, and all the other bells and whistles when I’m going out.

I normally use only lipstick, powder, and blush. If I go to some place close to home i.e supermarket, dollarama, etc., I would wear only lipstick (or maybe sometimes powder).

I leave the house without makeup almost every day. I really only wear make up for big meetings or going “out,” and only sometimes for the latter.

i wear mascara and eyeliner mostly everyday during the week. On weekends I don’t put it on unless I’m going out. Like @Meowkers: it’s the whole thing; concealer, foundation, blush, eye shadow, etc.
But there are days where I wake up in the morning for work and I just say “f it”

It depends. I’m professionally licensed as a makeup artist, but I tend to selectively wear it.
Like the poll said, I won’t wear it if I’m getting gas or at the grocery store or something.
I do wear it at:
- nice places- restaurants, etc
- work related things

During the weekdays I put on nude eyeshadow and mascara. On the weekends I tend to not be as strict, but I feel a lot better when I have at least mascara…I still want to wear something for FI, it’s not fair if I dress up for work but not him 🙂

I wear make up (foundation, blush, and eyeliner usually) almost all the time when I leave home, with the main exceptions being when I go to the gym or to walk the dog.

I wear it to work Monday – Friday. If I thought I could get away with not wearing it I would. But I manage an office, and I am usually the first person people see. So I feel like I have to put my best face forward, so to speak. On weekends, unless we are going out, I try to wear it as little as possible.
I am a professionally trained makeup artist, and once upon a time I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere without it.

Well it’s good to see I’m in good company! Right now, about 50% of you are saying ‘almost never’ which is where I would put myself. I won’t go running with it on, and will run the occassional errand without, but cannot bring myself to go to work without.

My daily make-up is usually just my eyes – shadow, eyeliner, mascara – but i’ll pump it up a bit with concealer and foundation sometimes. I didn’t wear any make-up all of last week, though, because my left eye-lid got all irritated, red and scabby. Pretty sure at least 2 people everyday, if not more, asked me if I was sick or tired… no, thanks, I’m just not wearing any make-up…

@CherryWaves: Yes! That has happened to me! Except it was more like “Where’d you get the black eyes?”
