Daily makeup

What do you like to use daily when you put on your makeup? I usually use blush, mascara, eyeliner, and something on my lips to give them a little color. I also almost always have my nails painted, but I do it myself to save the money that I would have to spend if I got them done at a salon.

I wear make-up quite often, but not always. The basics for me are foundation or concealer, depending on how even my skintone looks or how much redness I have - it depends...-, mascara and lipstick or lipbalm, rarely lipgloss, and some blush. But I can do a whole-face make-up if I feel like having it. I love makeing my eyes up. I sometimes paint my nails, but sometimes I'm just not patient enough.

For a while I would sit there for hours putting intricate designs on my nails with little brushes and tooth picks and it just became way too much of a hassle. The polish would start to chip after a couple of days and it would just be way too much time spent making it for it to come off that fast.

I don't use makeup, but I do throw a little water on my face every morning to wake myself up. Sometimes I have to do it twice if it's been a really rough night. Other than that, the occasional slap in the face can often enhance my appearance. Apart from that, I think I am perfect the way I am.

I like to wear it because of all the different color combinations I can make with eyeliner and eyeshadow to match with my outfits. It is just a fun part of my daily routine.

If that is you in your avatar, then you have fabulous dark features that can take different colour combinations. Without makeup you'll look equally fabulous. Just saying.

That is me. Thank you very much(: I had very little on in that picture and that is what I usually have on. I had a bit of light colored gloss on, but lately I have been experimenting with different lipsticks. I was also wearing eyeliner and mascara. The only time I really go "all out" is when I am performing and it is just to pop out features that the people far away will need to see. I don't use my stage makeup as daily makeup though.

I use everything, but I base my morning make up in light colours. I use makeup, eye-shadow, mascara, blush, lip liner and lipstick. I used to use light lipsticks but as I grow up I like more intense colours that need lip liner to stay on place! Sometimes I use eye-liner too. I shape and paint my nails too, I use different colours every time and it would cost me a lot to visit the nail salon every week.

I always struggle with finding something to put on my lips that will be completely dry within an hour because I have band in school in the morning and I don't want the product all over my reeds. I play the oboe and since it is a double reed it would get on both sides. I love the more intense colors if it is something that is going to stay. Any suggestions on something that will stay put and dry up pretty quick?

I apply a layer of lipstick and then I put some face powder on them. The powder dries out the lipstick an it lasts for more hours. Then you apply a second layer to enrich the colour. There is a brand with very steady colours and great quality lipsticks, called Radiant. I am not sure if it's available internationally though.

I will have to try that! I never thought to put powder on it, that sounds like a really good idea.

I only wear makeup when I go out or when I practicing make up tutorial but when Im at home I dont put anything not even face powder, I'm a bit lazy to put on makeup when I just stay at home all day. What kind of makeup I put on is also depend on where I'll go, if I go attending my class I only put powder, pencil eyebrows and eyeliner. But if I hang out with friends or going to a party I'll put makeup from eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliners and blush on. I'm Oriflame MLM seller so most of my make up products are Oriflame.

Oriflame is Swedish product, I used to buy Avon from my sister's friend but it seems nobody in here sell Avon anymore so I changed to Oriflame.

I don't wear a lot of products, but I do like using lip gloss, eyeliner (occasionally), and concealer.

What kind of lip gloss do you like? I usually use a berry shade when I wear lip gloss.

As long as it has some moisturizers built in, I am not too picky. Lately I have been using a mauve shade. I like berry sometimes, but I have to put it on with my finger to make sure my lips don't end up TOO pink. I like a natural look. Today I put a little extra makeup on for Thanksgiving dinner--dark green/brown eyeshadow, bronzer, and "mineral veil". It's fun to dress up a little more! :)

Dressing up is always fun. I tend to just because I have fun mixing and matching different things. I have a pretty large makeup collection that I just recently organized.

On a normal day, I only wear powder, mascara, light shade of lipstick or sometimes just lip balm or gloss and i brush my brows of course and cheek tint. As for my nails, I have my mani and pedis done twice a month. when the nail polish chips off, i just re-paint them myself, just like you, to save money as well.

I really do try and spend very little on what I buy. I have tried buying grab bags on ebay and I liked the turnout of that. Some of the things I got I didn't like so I just gave them away as gifts so it worked to my advantage. I haven't gotten a mani-pedi in a very long time but it is a nice treat for yourself.

You know, I'm a 32-year-old woman that has been married for going on nine years and I've been with my husband for almost the last twelve years. I didn't wear makeup on a really regular basis before I met my husband and since I've been with him for such a long time, I very rarely, if ever wear makeup. When I did wear makeup, it was mostly just a little bit of eye shadow and a very light color on my lips. I never liked wearing a lot of makeup because it just always felt heavy to me.

I don't like to use the things that feel very heavy. I honestly don't even spend all that much on it. I was just out shopping the other day and bought a few lipsticks an eyeshadow pallet and it came to $4. I used the eyeshadow and it stayed on all day so for a dollar I think that was worth it.

I usually use just something on my lips daily but when I go out and need to be look more presentable I use blush, mascara and eye liner. Just to enhance my looks a bit. I always have my nail polish on but since I am pregnant I don't put nail polish anymore.

What is your favorite eyeliner color? I particularly like a dark purple, black, or silver? Also, congratulations on the baby, how far along are you?

I usually use basic foundation, loose powder, mascara, eyeliner, blush on, lipstick and lipgloss, so it can make my appeareance look fresh.. And a little nail polish to make my nails look clean
