    Yup, wouldn't dream stepping out of the house without it!

    Most of the time but I occasionally go without

    Occasionaly, if I'm feeling fancy!

    Never... I don't bother

    I wear it everyday!


    ETA: I have gotten really “skilled” at makeup application and it only takes me about 5 minutes in the morning – mineral powder foundation, concealer, eyeliner, mascara, bronzer. Then I throw on some lip gloss as I leave the house.

    I work in construction, so I don’t bother– every now and then, if I’m in-office for a full day and I expect to have a meeting or something I’ll wear mascara & lipstick, and now eyeliner if I’m feeling reallycrazy (I bought it for the wedding, so I’m using it up at least, but it’s definitely NOT part of my “routine”).

    Occasionally, if I am feeling fancy or have a big meeting.  For daily life though, definitely not.

    I rarely wear makeup. I wear it for special occasions and very rarely just because I feel like it. But 99% of the time, I’m bare-faced.

    When I do wear makeup, I prefer to still look natural. There’s not much of a difference of me with or without makeup.

    Me with makeup (at my baby shower, hence why I look a little heavier than the picture above):

    I don’t own foudation – the closest I have is tinted moisturizer.  On weekdays I usually sweep on some loose powder (just to keep down some shine), blush (because I’ve just covered up my naturally rosy cheeks), and mascara.  Never on the weekends unless I’m going out.  My husband doesn’t like makeup, so I don’t do it for him.  I will put on eyeshadow once in a while – I certainly own enough to do myself up everyday.  🙂

    I hardly ever bother – there are other things I’d rather be doing than faffing around with makeup.

    I pretty muich never wear makeup but it has recently become an issue at my job.  Nobody has said anything specific but I have been given the impression that I am being unprofessional by not wearing any makeup.  As a result I have started wearing light makeup on a daily basis to work (tinted moisturizer, blush, and eyeshadow.)  At home I only wear makeup when we’re going out somewhere nice or we’re going somewhere where we might have our picture taken.

    I rarely wear any unless if there’s going to be a big event where I know a lot of pictures will be taken, like art exhibitions on campus.

    If I even bother to wear make-up it’s no more than eyeshadow and mascara. I’m paranoid about my skin, so I try not to put things on it besides a moisturizer/sunscreen combo.

    I’m in engineering. I think I look good enough, so I only wear it if I’m feeling fancy.

    The only thing I never leave the house without putting on my face is moisturizer.  I wear makeup occassionally… maybe on the weekends.  It’s like when I turned 30, I just did not give a eff anymore lol.

    I actually look younger without it.

    @beachbride1216:  That’s crazy, I can’t see how they can feel justified in saying you’re unprofessional by not wearing it.  What kind of work do you do?

    I never, ever wear makeup. I have no idea how to apply it and I’m just kinda lazy. 😀 A few times a year I might put on some eyeshadow/mascara, but that’s where it ends.

    I actually used to be pretty psychotic about it…then I got eyelash extensions, and it looks so fabulous, if I do too much to my face it’s so pretty it destroys the universe…so now I’m kinda going to the no makeup side of life…which is weird
