Do you always put on makeup when you go out?

I used to always do this, but anymore I'm more likely to just leave the house without even thinking about it. I still put it on when I am going to a wedding or something special.

I don't put on makeup everyday I only use it if I'm going out somewhere special and even then I don't wear a lot. I don't like makeup very much I don't think it suits me but other people really know how to use it to their advantage and look good with it.

I wish I was really good at putting it on, I've seen some people look entirely different after they have put it on.

I am very happy that I do not feel the need to put on makeup every time I show myself to anyone. I hardly ever use any makeup.

I only wear make up when I go to special things also. Then its very little. I never wear foundation. My mother in law has always worn make up and to see her without it is crazy. Her face is messed up from her always having it on.

I always wear make-up when I go out, even if it's subtle; just cover-up and lots of eyeliner, with the ocassional mascara. It brings out my eyes, and admittedly, makes me feel more secure and confident with my appearance.

I think I do feel better about myself when I wear it.

I am not really dependent on make-up to boost my self-confidence. However, I cannot leave the house without applying a foundation based eyebrow highlighter. I especially like shiseido products for make-up. I also use a light shade blush on. I do use heavy make-up when I attend formal occasions.

I rarely wear makeup. I used to wear it all the time cause I thought it was exciting when I finally got old enough to use it, lol. Now I just feel like it takes too long and I don't want to look fake. I still wear it for special occasions when I want to look really nice, and I think that's more fun cause it's more dramatic when people aren't used to seeing you that way, cause then it makes you look more dressy and everything. Back when I wore it all the time, it sort of became a chore after awhile, but now that I don't all the time, it's more fun since I only do it for something special. Makeup can get really expensive too! It's nice to not have to buy it as often. :)

Forgot to add that for weddings I definitely put on make-up. Cos it's a formal ocassion and must look nice for your friend's or relative's big day! For my own wedding, think my make-up artist did magic. my guests were all saying that she did a great job defining my features yet keeping the look natural and not over-made-up. too bad she's the miracle maker and not me! I know very little about make-up.

I heard that in some countries, most women do not leave their homes without make-up. the first thought that comes to mind is, what a boom for cosmetic companies! For me, I put on very light make up everyday. Some concealer if needed and eye brow liner. Too much make-up has the contrary effect of clogging up pores and giving you bad complexion.

No, I don't wear make-up at all. I am a natural person. My motto is "What you see, is what you get." LOL

Actually, I don't. I just put some powder and ready to go. Normally, I would apply make-ups when attending ceremonies or special occasions. =)

I don't believe in wearing makeup. I never believed in wearing makeup, and I never understood why my mother would put on makeup before going out in the evenings. There is nothing on my face that I wish to change or accent. I am happy the way I am, and I ddon't want to change anthing.

That is great! It would be so much easier if everybody would do that and not try to keep changing how we look.

As a woman we have to do this. But it doesn't mean you have to put thick make up (that's the way I called it), just light way,such as powder, lipgloss, and blush-on. That way you'll never look pale in any condition, especially when you feel not so healthy.

I always wore make-up, and even went as far as to take my whole stash with me to work and touch it up each time I used the bathroom. These days I wear it only to church, shopping, or parties. What kills me is people who wear make-up to the gym or the beach! What's the point!

Are you kidding me? I LOVE make up! :) Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to use any, so I can pretty much leave the house with my face totally clean. But usually, I put on at least some lipgloss. When I have a party or any other special occasion, then I reserve at least 20 minutes to my make up. I love spending time with it, and I also love looking at the mirror after the job is done!
