Ladies do you wear makeup every day or just when you are going somewhere?

I guess I am strange but the only time I put makeup on is when I'm going somewhere, to church, town, etc. I work at home so I don't have to get dressed for work so I usually just leave off makeup until I have somewhere to go. My husband is so sweet, he tells me he doesn't see why I wear makeup at all that he thinks I don't need it. But if I have somewhere to go I would rather wear it to make myself feel better. LOL

What type of moisturizer do you have? The reason I ask, another reason I make sure to wear makeup when I go out is that my daughter and I sell makeup and skin products. I have never heard of a tinted moisturizer. :)

I rarely wear makeup since I'm a stay at home mom. I'll put on some makeup if we are going somewhere nice or for church. And every now and then I'll put on makeup just around the house just because I feel like being pretty that day lol.

Edwin, I don't need make up to show femininity. I'm quite feminine enough without make up which is why most of the time I don't wear make up. I'm confident in who I am naturally.

I don't wear a whole lot but what I do wear I want it to look natural. I can't stand to see a lady wearing makeup that looks about an inch thick, to me that does look fake.

Because I know makeup is basically plain old bad for your skin (even if you have the natural makeup) I only wear makeup when I am going somewhere. I wear more makeup on Sunday morning than any other day. That's not saying a whole lot because I don't wear a lot of makeup anyway. It's just too bad that even the most natural makeup there is, isn't something that aids your skin. I'd like to find a makeup that clears pores as you wear it. LOL

That would be really great. I wear BeautiControl and I find that I like it better than any other I've tried. I love our skin products because they are broken down into different age groups that include a facial scrub you use once a week and toner that you you use twice daily. The toner is really refreshing. My mother and mother-in-law both tried it Sunday and they said it felt good too. This is what rinses your skin after you cleanse it.

I just started wearing mascara and lipstick recently. I do wear eyeshadow and a bronze blush. I like for my skin to look natural even with makeup on.

Your husband sounds like my fiancee. My fiancee has always told me that he prefers my natural beauty. I very seldom wear makeup at all. I never really liked wearing makeup so the only time I bother wearing any at all is when we are having a family photo done professionally.

I don't wear make-up at all. I used to and when I met my husband, he told me to stop that I was fine without it and it made me look fake. It sure makes my morning routine a lot simpler and if he is happy with how I luck, that is all that matters to me. Great Topic !

Hi, I only use a brow pencil to highlight my eyebrows. It is a must for me before I leave the house for work everyday. There is always a loose powder on my kit, too. Apart from these two items, I don't anything else on my face. Well, retin-a cream also before I go to sleep.

I don't wear make-up at all. I am the type of person... what you see is what you get. Besides, since I wear glasses most of the time I feel the glasses hide the make-up anyway so why bother. When get to wear contacts, sometimes I will put on some black eyelineer to highlight my eyes but that is all. Hubby met me without make-up so I didn't have to worry about him running off screaming the first morning he saw me without it lol.

Hi,SheliaLee! I don't think you're strange,it's your stlye--natural.Please keep your own stlye,and you don't need to copy others'. For me,I seldom makeup meself.I want to keep my natual.I dislike using cosmetics because they are harmful to health and most of the addition in cosmetics are toxic and poisonous.

I wear make-up every day. I only wear it when I go out, but I do go out every day. On the rare occasions that I stay home, I give my face a break and go without make-up. I don't wear a lot of make-up though and it takes me literally five minutes to get myself ready.

I wear makeup only on special occasions where I would be wearing formal wear. For everyday, I just wear a light lip stick. I guest not wearing makeup everyday keeps me look younger that my age.:)

I don't ware make up. I hate using them, i feel so irritated when i wear them. I think i only wore make up 4 times, 1 when I was 4 years old and I was a flower girl at my cousin's wedding, 2nd my high school graduation, 3rd my college graduation, 4th my wedding day. and that's it. all my older sisters are forcing me to wear make up because i look so young and during interviews, people need to see somebody who is matured to handle some work. BUT I don't want to. Until now, I don't wear make up if i go to parties, work, etc. Some people thought I'm 18 or 19 but i am actually 26 years old.
