Do you wear make up everyday?

I'm one of those people who only put make up on if I'm going somewhere, but even then it's only a tinted moisturiser, not actual make up!

I have a friend who's worse nightmare is the thought of being seen with no make up at all, I find this very strange :s

DH used to go out with someone who wouldn't leave the house unless she was fully made up, with hair extensions and fake tan, then when he got with me he was so relieved, he'd pick me up and we'd go for little drives around, and I'd be in ugg boots, leggins and a t-shirt, with very minimal make up, he finds this more attractive than if I were to pile the make up on!

I keep my best make up for when I'm actually going out for a meal or something. I don't see the need for it everyday, it's good to let your face breathe! Well I think so anyways :)

  • Sounds like you got a good man.

    I'm off and on with my make-up, somdays on, somedays off. I usually keep it light; heavy make-up scares my DH...too clowny.

  • ..i don't even own makeup. I have a twin sister who won't be seen without it.. and she DOES look 'sick' or, frankly, like shit when she's not wearing any.. lol. which doesn't speak well for me. ;-) but still, its just not my thing.

  • I only wear makeup if I'm going somewhere, and even then, it's minimal and it looks "natural"...I used to do the whole shebang back before I had kids, but since, I never have time to get all "dolled up". lol

  • I wear makeup almost everyday. I only do myself up when I go to work or somewhere nice. If I am at home, I wear a tinted moisterizer or just bareminerals foundation and nothing else.

  • I the last time I wore any makeup was for my mom's wedding 3 year ago.--I don't own any so I had to borrow my mom's and sisters (thankfully we all have the same skin tones). The time before that was my own wedding 11 years ago.--didn't own any so again borrowed from my mom and sisters...again thankfully they are the same skin tones.

  • I used to be so afraid to go out without make up. Now I like my natural look. I may put on some lip gloss so I still look a little polished. Or a little mineral powder to protect my skin from the sun because it does look natural and breaths. (im in TX where the sun is brutal) But really only when I go somewhere special do it....its part of the dressing up...or sometimes when I want to feel good.
