I only wear facial care cosmetic such as : moisturizer and lip balm when at home. I wear an SP moisturizer, basic loose powder and lipstick if I'm going out for a non formal activities. But if I have to attend formal activities such as : attending wedding partys and dining out with my husband colleague I'm out in full force (I mean : lipstick, mascara, eyeshadow ,etc... everything to boost my appearance.. LOL ) What about you ? Do you think it is possible for woman to go outside without a make up, specially for a formal occasion ?

I usually wear total make-up to special or formal gatherings and light make -up at work and outing. If im home I never put any cosmetics, I let my face feel more relax and clean.

Whenever I leave the house I wear foundation, mascara, eyeshadow, blush, bronzer and sometimes a little bit of eyeliner and lipgloss. When I go out to someplace special I wear all these things but just put more on to give it a more fancy/night out look. I think it's a personal choice for a girl to wear make up or not. If someone came to a formal occasion without make up, I wouldn't really care since that is not for me to decide for her.

Is wearing a make up or not affecting your self confidence Captainmorgan ? I mean if you go to a formal occasion without a make up, do you still feel confident to socialize ? If I'm in that situation, at the first time I might feel a little uneasy, but I believe I can handle the situation and will enjoy the occasion any way.

Hi there....for me, I don't put on any lip balm when I am at home but the moisturizer is on my face all the time whether I am at home or outside. As long as after I cleanse my face, i would apply moisturizer and eye cream. I don't go full force when attending formal functions as i have very very sensitive eyes. I only put on moisturizer + press powder + lipstick + very light eyeshadow (sometimes none at all - due to sensitive eyes). I have tried various brands and it does not help. My eyes will have tears trickling down after about 1/2 an hour applying eyeshadow so I don't really put them on though I have 2 palletes (blue shades and pink shades). Even on my wedding day, I didn't put on any masacara and eyeliner...don't one to be a bride appearing as though she is crying !!!....so it's only moisturizer + eye cream (even for eye cream - tried so many brands and finally found beauticontrol eye -x-cel eye cream which does not make my eye trickle down with tears) + lipstick + press powder whenever I go out for formal functions

It's must be very troublesome about your sensitive eyes. Have you tried to consult a dermatologist for your condition Eagle_f15 ?
