    This reminded me of my stepmother. She’d never leave the house without “putting on her face”. When I was a teenager, she was doubled over in pain due to kidney stones, and Dad and I were trying to get her to the car to take her to the hospital. She absolutely refused to go until she’d put on makeup. 

    I’d say I don’t wear any makeup 60-70%. When I do, it’s usually just a little lip gloss and blush. I only ever put on a significant amount of makeup when Darling Husband and I are going out.

    Full face, every day. I wear it because not only do I feel more complete with it on, it makes me look much more polished than normal (I’m definitely not a natural beauty). I think makeup makes everyone look better! 🙂

    I don’t wear it now at all on a daily basis, but I will put on the minimum (a light powder, blush, eye makeup, gloss) when we go out… like… a few times a year. But that might change if I end up with a job where I see people a lot.

    I always wear concealer and mascara. Sometimes I will spice it up with eyeshadow and blush. I am pretty low key and low-maintenance but I won’t even go into Walmart without concealer and mascara! LOL!

    I always put on at least eyeliner/mascara before going out in public… I just feel more “put together” when I put makeup on. I don’t want to be one of those mom/wives that “has let themselves go”… not saying a woman who doesn’t wear makeup has let herself go, I am just not much of a natural beauty.

    @AmeliaBedelia: Yea if I HAD to go quickly I would leave but I would also probably bring the essentials with me and do it in the car unless it was like a super serious situation… lol

    I *have* gone out without makeup, but I normally wear eyeliner and shadow and lipgloss, but that’s about all.

    I usually do not wear makeup. I only wear makeup for going out or on special occasions (weddings, holidays).

    No makeup:

    I don’t ever wear makeup. Didn’t even wear it for my e-pics. I’m not that great at applying makeup, and my mom doesn’t really wear it either, so I never had anyone to teach me and was never motivated to teach myself. I think I have pretty average looks, nothing pretty, but I don’t think I look any better with it on than without it. I have pretty good skin though.

    @AmeliaBedelia: You have gorgeous skin and you look great in all three pics.  But you can totally get away with no make-up.  All you need in the first pic is a little color/gloss and tiny bit of blush/bronzer on the cheek and you are done.  I think your lashes look better without the mascara.  You are so lucky!

    I think how much make-up you wear is based on where you grew up (I’m generalizing). I had heard that Southern girls always wear full make-up and when I was driving through the South, OMG! It was totally true. lol  And I think East Coast girls are also more into wearing make-up on a daily basis.

    I’m from California and it’s not that we don’t wear make-up, it’s just that it’s much less and much more casual.  It’s very beachy and laid-back. Dark colors and lots of make-up stand out there.  I just wear a tinted moisturizer, a bit of blush, I curl my lashes and wear gloss.  Maybe I’ll put on some mascara. And that is all-very easy:)

    I wear it because I’m 22 and if I don’t wear it I look 14. 🙁 I wish I could go without it but I hate people thinking I’m much younger.
