Have you ever gone to bed without taking your make up off?

Have you? I've never done this, becuase these days with face wipes and such like it's easy enough to take your make up off quickly and easily before going to bed, even if you've come home really late and are really tired or perhaps drunk! I always, no matter what, make sure my eye make up has been properly removed and that my face has been washed or cleansed,and that i've applied some face cream and eye cream. If i don't do this not only do i get make up all over my pillow, but i also ruin my skin as my skin is sensitive, and leaving my make up on over night makes my eczema worse and cxloggs my pores, brining me out in spots. So tell me, have you ever gone to bed with your make up still on, how often do you do this, why do you do this, and what are the results of you doing this! Or maybe you're a goody two shoes like me and have never done it!?!

Hi I'm Toya I must admit I have When I come back from partying sometimes but I always try and keep to a cleansing routine and found some great cleanser and toner which also moisturises The results - nothing really except I don't feel as refreshed as I could do when I wake up as cleansing and toning my face always gives me a pick up. Yes my makeup runs so I don't know what my boyfriends or friends would think if i wasnt at home But my last boyfriend thought it was attractive the messy look!!! I do try to cleanse, tone and moisturise when i get up and go to bed though every day

When I was younger I definitely used to do this, but I haven't in a long long time. It makes my skin feel icky and strange the next morning and I'd rather wake up with a clean and fresh face than a face that feels suffocated. Needless to say I've never worn much make-up, I've always been quite the natural girl.

Yes I have done this many times. The makeup I use does not come off so easy and so it doesn't like smear or come off when I am asleep. I just remove it the next morning while in the shower and reapply.

I used to all the time when i was younger, but as i've got older i tend to make a real effort, and it's become a routine now, i feel guilty if i don't.

I have to take my eye makeup off at least or wake up with swollen eyes in the morning. I havent gone to bed with makeup on for many years. I think my skin was a bit more forgiving then, also I dont tend to get blind drunk nowadays.

When I was younger I use to do it all the time, I would never bother to take my makeup off before going to bed and only very occasionally woke up with it on my pillow. Nowadays I don't wear makeup very often but when I do usually by the time I go to bed there is none or very little of it left on so I don't usually bother about it too much.

I am very guilty of sleeping with make up on sometimes- it's really bad for my skin I know but sometimes I even forget I have them on lol. I tend to get a few spots if I do this but nothing too major, and a oily face! I try and take it off all the time now, I found really good biore wipes that take everything off which is really good for me as it's easy to use!

Usually only when drunk! Sometimes I just have to fall into bed before I hit the floor instead (I have to sleep a lot). It's not a good idea when sporting a gothic look though. Many's the time I've awoken to my eyes pasted shut with make-up. Bleugh!

I simply cannot go to bed with my make-up on. Even if I come home drunk or super tired, I still will take off my make-up. I have to use eye make-up remover and then face wash to make sure all of my make-up is off. I don't like leaving my make-up overnight because I don't want it to clog my pores or irritate the sensitive skin around my eyes. However, I have probably done it once or twice though, but I get mad at myself then next morning.

I've gone to bed with my makeup on, mostly because I forgot I was wearing any. I rarely ever wear makeup so when I do, I usually forget. When I do wear makeup its usually just a little blush and some mascara. I'll remember in the morning because I will have dark brown circles under my eyes from the mascara.

No, never in my life. I have always remember to take off my makeup no matter how late or tired when I get home. I use cleansing oil to remove the makeup and it's really easy. I dont want to skip my skincare routine and be all regretful the next day. Even I use mineral makeup now and it says it won't cause any breakout even you sleep with it, I still take them all off every night. Better safe than sorry.
