Do you put on your makeup everyday?

I wish I could find time to put my makeup on, but with my 3 kids I have NO TIME? I'm tired of looking so washed out. Does anybody feel the same way?

  • Unless I'm not feeling well, I always put on my "every day makeup". For me, that's: eyeliner and either tinted chap stick or lipstain under regular chapstick. If I'm going out (shopping or something casual like that) I add mascara, maybe a little bare minerals.

    My 2 kids are teens now, so I have more time than I did when they were little; but even then (even when they were newborns) I feel/felt more like myself with a touch of makeup. And I always wear some kind of earrings and brush my hair before I start my day. It's as good as my morning coffee for getting me going. :-)

  • Yes, it takes me 5 minutes. Concealer under eyes, one coat of mascara (the normal 2 coats stand out too much when you don't have more makeup on), fill in brows, and tinted lip balm.

  • omfg.. gosh i dont even have the patience when i am too busy. 3 days a week i work at 4 am and dont do my makeup then. and if i am in a hurry i just blush and gloss on the way to work. maybe u can just use a tinted moisturizer and some gloss u can keep in ur car and use a red light!.. i live with 2 eyelash curlers, they at least open up the eyes!! try doing something for yourself.. if u can make five minutes! good luck sweetie. u dont need makeup to be beautiful!

  • I get up before my kids and husband almost very morning and manage to fix the mane and makeup between laundry and cooking breakfast.

    suzzanna i went to MAC, and the girl helped me a very light everyday look. I still can't seem to find the time to do that though. lol. Like shar-hulk said I barely brush my hair.
