I saw this post that I really liked [ http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/how-much-makeup-do-you-wear ], but I just don’t have the patience to read so many responses! So I did a take-off, and created a poll 🙂
On a daily basis, I wear a lot of different products (just not very heavy). I can’t go a day without: eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, foundation, powder, and blush. Plus, of course, my trusty chapstick. (but never ever lipgloss!)
What do you wear??
I also added where you buy!

For my lazy make-up days I use powder, bronzer as a blush, and mascara. If I’m jazzing things up I add eye liner and eye shadow. I keep things pretty natural, so I’m fairly low maintenance.

@discodance: So jealous! I wish I had clear skin and could survive on just powder! Way to insecure for that.

Could you please add a “just moisturizer” “chapstick” or “other” category? I’m in one of those.

I love makeup! My normal look for the day is eyeshadow primer, face primer, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, foundation, powder, and 2 types of blush. It is a lot. On days that I’m running late, I’ll skip the eyeshadow or just sweep 1 light color over my lid instead of using different shades and creating a light smokey eye which is my usual work.
I prefer high end makeup, but recently I’ve been using some budget friendly options. My last foundation was so thick I just couldn’t use it anymore, it felt gross on my face. It was from MAC. I went out and bought a revlon foundation because i just wasted $40 on MAC and couldn’t really justify spending another $40 on foundation. The revlon works great, but I’ll definitely go back to Sephora for a new type once its finished. I also will get some mascara to test from the drugstore and for everyday use but I use high end brands for special occasions. I never use eye shadows from the drugstore though. The color payoff just isn’t the same and it doesn’t last as long. Same with lipstick and blush.

First I use moisturizer, then either mineral or sheer liquid foundation, sheer powder, tiny bit of blush, eyeliner, neutral eye shadow, light brow pencil, mascara, and chapstick or lip gloss.
I like a natural look so I use neutral colors and light quantities. I usually get my cosmetic items at Ulta so I voted drugstore. I also like Clinique products.

i LOVE makeup! I work in a medical office so I don’t get the chance (or time) to go all out. I usually use a powder foundation, blush, and mascara (sometimes). On the weekends I definitely use my primers/contouring/eye shadow. I love playing with it!

I don’t wear make up. At all. I never learned how to put it on. When I dress up, I put on a little eyeshadow, mascara and blush, but that’s about it.
I’m SUPER excited for my wedding because not only have I never seen how well I can clean up, but neither has my fiance! I have good skin and I’m not a hideous she-beast without akeup, so I’m hoping I can look incredible with the right tools!

i normally just wear mascara, a little cover-up, a little eye liner, and chapstick. if i’m going somewhere nicer though i will throw on some powder, eye shadow, and blush. most of the time it doesn’t even look like i’m wearing makeup (i’m definitely not good at putting it on!)

If I’m staying home or only going to fiances place then it’s oil free moisturizer (seriously, my skin sucks), concealer, and powder. The concealer is actually leg and body cover by dermablend, but it works and blends so much better than anything else, even their face concealer. Plus it doesn’t come off easily 😀
I use lip gloss like chapstick, so it might show up on an inside day.
If I’m going out it’s all of that, plus eyeliner, eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, and at least lipgloss and sometimes lipstick. Mascara is used if it’s kind of a special occasion, but not always because it can irritate my eyes.
No foundation. I don’t see the point in it. It just makes everything look cakey and settles into lines. I had a “professional” makeup arist do my face for free at a trunk show with MAC products, and like there suddenly appeared lines under my eyes and around my mouth where there never were any before! Plus I could just see all the makeup all over my face. Foundation sucks!

@housebee: I wanted to add something simpler! I ran out of room 🙁

@MrsFutureG: I bet you’ll look amazing! Maybe your make-up artist (or friend!) can teach you how to wear it daily if you’re interested.
@yanamari: Mascara isn’t my favorite, it usually burns a little. I started using Physician’s Formula Organic Mascara. It wears off easily, and if you cry your eyes sting a tiny bit, but aside from that it works wonders. It doesn’t bother me at all!!

Some makeup I get from the drugstore, some I get from Macy’s and Sephora, and some I order from Mary Kay.
If I wear any makeup on a regular day, it’s usually only eyeliner and mascara. I will add foundation, blush, lip gloss, and maybe eyeshadow if I’m going out.

My must haves are foundation (which also acts as my concealer for terrible days), powder, mascara for my freakishly blonde eye lashes that don’t exist without mascara despite how long they are, and eyeliner. Chapstick is also a must. Most days I use a brow pencil too, again because of the blondness, but not everyday because I’m lazy like that. It’s not unusual for me to wear blush and eyeshadow but I tend to go without.

I don’t walk out the door without tinted moisturizer, clear brow gel, and clear lip gloss.
For the office I add concealer and mascara, and sometimes eye shadow and blush. On dress-up days I add lipstick.
