97% of the time i’m bare faced but usually wear lip gloss (and once in blue add some mascara/eyeliner). I simply don’t have the energy or desire to do the full face thing, which I only do that for special ocassions. When I do it up, its usually foundation, mascara/eyeliner, lipstick/gloss, eyeshadow. Never any blush. I own primer but rarely use it.
I don’t have great skin, far from it. I’ve just never been good with routines. I own tons of makeup but most of it goes untouched.

My skin is very sensitive so I am usually bare faced. Ocassionaly I will do a simple look with just tinted moisturizer, eyeliner, and lip gloss.
If its a special occassion I do a full makeup face including blush.

Carmex is the most I do daily. When I did my engagement photos I did wear make up but I had it done because I am not a makeup person at all… Here is a photo with the makeup from that day

I wear Mary Kay foundation pretty much daily. I ALWAYS wear it to work, church, or out. However, I don’t really consider the grocery store or the dry cleaners “out”. On days I don’t have anywhere important to go, I may skip on the foundation, but I usually don’t. I wear a little blush and lip gloss with it. I don’t do anything with my eyes. I’d probably rub anything off before I got out the door anyway. I kind of go for the natural look. Mary Kay foundation is pretty sheer and people have commented that I don’t even “need to” wear make-up because my skin is so smooth or even, but what they don’t know is I wear it all the time and that is why my skin looks “so smooth” or “even”! lol! I must be doing something right. : )

By the way… She used MAC products on me and I thought that they were great, considering I am not much of a Makeup person.

DEPENDING ON MY MOOD THAT DAY I WILL WEAR A “FULL FACE” BUT USAULLY I JUST MAKE UP MY EYES AND WEAR LIP GLOSS AND GO OUT THE DOOR. PEOPLE TELL ME I DO NOT NEED THE “FULL FACE” BUT I FEEL A LITTLE MORE POLISHED WITH IT ON. BUT I LOVE MAKEUP BECAUSE IT ENHANCES YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY AND YOU CAN GET CREATIVE WITH IT. I USE HD EYE SHADOW AND LIQUID LINER W/ MABELYLENN’S FAISIES MASCRA AND GET MANY COMPLIMENT SON MY MAKEUP, EVEN REQUESTS FOR ME TO DO THEIR MAKE UP. BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY IT A PERSONAL CHOICE.

I am a primer and foundation type of girl for work. I use the primer to keep my oiliness in check. I always wear blush (which looks more like a bronzer; sweet as cocoa by MAC), mascara, lipgloss, and a little eyeliner. When Im going out, I will do eyeshadow and some contouring. For relaxed days I will do a tinted moisterizer just to even me out, lipgloss, and mascara. I just love makeup, but I am comfortable going bare because I do have nice skin as well.

I’m generally bare faced during the week, however, pretty much do makeup regularly on the weekends. When I do makeup on the weekends, it’s full face with the exception of primer, which I only do primer for special occasions.

Only lipstick during the week. I’ve been a workout fiend most of my life so I never got into the routine. I do get my brows down religiously every 3wks and its worth it because. For special occasions I will wear a tinted moisturizer and I’m looking into buying Chanel since my MUA used it for my wedding. Hopefully I’ll learn how to put on eyeshadow for special occasions.(Just never had a desire to learn)LOL

@cameronwedding: You look beautiful! I love it!
I’m a MAC addict. I used to wear a full face on the daily, but not so much in the summertime. I’m in Atlanta and it is sweltering down here.. the last thing I need is another layer on my face, LoL. I always just end up looking greasy.. So most of the time, in the summer, I just do eyeliner and lipgloss. Sometimes I’ll put on lashes, though I used to wear them daily.
I wear Smashbox primer when I do a full face.. it’s the best! Foundation, eyeliner, eyeshadow, blush, lipgloss, mascara= all MAC. I do have a few lipglosses from other lines… but with eyeshadow, I’ve never used anything else that lasts as long as MAC. Oh, and Urban Decay eyeshadow primer is GOLD. :o)

I’m a make up junkie, haha. Usually I do full face (foundation, bronzer, eye shadow, mascara, blush, tinted lip gloss) except in the summer I usually just use a bronzer, mascara and lip gloss.
For the wedding I plan on having a flawless sunkissed look with eyelashes and blush. Not sure if I want to do a matte red lip or my regular tinted natural lip. When I did my first make up trial I did a heavy smoky eye and I think I am moving away from that since it will be so hot in Jamaica. Here are a couple pics.
1. Just washed face, no make up.
1st Make Up trial, heavy eye, nude lip.
I have my 2nd make up trial on Sunday. Something totally different than the first. I will post pics then.
