I don’t always wear makeup, but the main goal is to not look like a zombie.  I’m being honest when I say that I am sometimes startled by how tired I look in the mirror sometimes when I don’t wear makeup.

@lookingglass:  I wear make up for many reasons, but first and foremost because I enjoy putting it on. I like trying new colors/techniques. I like mascara, a lot. My skin used to be TERRIBLE, so I had to learn to shop products that wouldn’t break me out, but cover my problem areas.

I wear foundation to cover my bad skin and eyeliner every day. Past that, only on special occasions. 

Although I did recently just discover the Just Bitten Kissable balm stains and I’m head over heels in love. I might be adding one of those to my daily routine.

I only wear it for work and when we go out.

Foundation to even out my skin tone. Mascara as I have very short and sparse eyelashes. And eyebrow pencil for the same reason as mascara (but for eyebrows, LOL). That’s all I use!

I wear Bare Minerals – so my makeup is usually light.  You can still see my freckles.  I like blush – so my face isnt so pale.  I also use Boiing concealer to cover up these gosh awful dark circles under my eyes – WHERE DID THESE COME FROM?!!!  I never used to have them… but once I graduated college and started working – BOOM.  Theyre here.  haha…

I don’t wear or use that much make up 75% of the time- mostly because I’m lazy about it!  I ALWAYS wear chapstick and re-apply about 5 times a day.  When I do wear make-up, it’s usually mascara, pressed powder for anti-shine, and lipsticks.  I go all-out about a dozen times a year and wear tinted moisterizer, blush, pressed powder, eye liner, eye shadow, concealer, masacara, and lipstick.

I wear makeup to cover my acne scars/even out my skin, and eye makeup to make my eyes pop.

I usually wear foundation, neutral colored eyeshadow, mascara, and tinted lip  balm. Sometimes blush, lipstick, and/or a more developed eyeshadow/eyeliner look if I’m feeling fancy.

I don’t usually wear make-up on the weekends when we’re running around doing errands or whatever.

I guess I just wear it because I think it makes me look better. I don’t feel self-conscious without it, but I like the way I look with it on. I also think it’s pretty much expected for me as a professional.

I have to wear something to cover my bad skin and I definitely need some mascara because I’m blonde – which means blonde eyelashes. They don’t even exist unless I put something on them. They’re super long too, so I can’t help but love them all darkened up.

The rest is just pretty stuff. I don’t mind going with my bare essentials, but I don’t have to so I won’t.

I have tempermental skin.  Some days, I have clear skin; other days, my skin is splotchy and breaking out.  So, I almost always wear foundation and blush some days it is only a light coverage foundation. 

I’m jealous of the girls who have time to touch-up their makeup and lipstick.  I can’t wear lipstick on a daily basis because it always wears off.

I only wear makeup if we’re going out for the evening. I have never been one of those girls that you put make up on and they look completely different, I always look like me with some eye makeup on.

I’m currently in love with BB creams though, they are amazing! it’s like a primer and tinted moisturizer in one.

I just wear eye makeup to make myself look more awake. I never leave the house without mascara. I recently discovered Bobby Brown’s eye corrector, which I put under my eyes and it seems to brighten my entire face. I am very lucky to have good skin, so I only really use foundation for special events. 

Since my skin is so fair, any heavy or creative makeup looks rediculous on me. I am jealous of women who can wear of fun colors or smokey eyes, but I can’t pull them off.

@lookingglass:  a little primer can take your make up a loooong way. Loreal (sp?) has a line out that includes a few different types of primers that I’ve used and like. I dab a little in the corners of my eyes, bridge of my nose and also around my mouth where my make up tends to ” crease” because of laugh lines and it helps smooth over those spots so makeup doesn’t slide too much.
