Ladies - Do you wear make-up everyday?

Since becoming a mother and moving literally into the middle of a forest, I only wear make-up if I have to. Which isn't very often. Do you wear make-up everyday or just when the mood strikes you? Or do you just wear it when you have to go out?

I have a three year old boy with autism so I don't have the time to put my makeup on everyday plus I stay at home with him so it seems kinda pointless to take the effort to put it on and nobody but me see it. So I definently one of those mom that only put it on when I either get this urge to feel better about myself or if I'm going to be having any interreaction with actual adults.

I'm so glad that I'm not in the minority here! Make-up seems so pointless to me unless I'm doing something other than taking care of chores and kids - and that is pretty rare for me!

I don't wear make up at all. I just never was really into wearing makeup. I'm not very girly. I wouldn't mind using a little now that I'm getting older, but I'm a stay at home mom. I don't really get out much or have a need for makeup.

I wear it every now and then. But I'm at home all day too and can't see a need for it. I just wish my husband would see it that way. I don't think the chickens care if I dress up for them while I'm mucking out the coop! LOL!

I've never worn makeup. I don't like the feel of it on my face. I think some women wear way too much. As for me, my Mom never wore it and most of my sisters never did either. I guess because I was brought up a simple country girl It's Ok on other woman, if not too much. But I prefer not to wear it.

I used to wear it but I don't anymore unless I'm going somewhere special. My husband likes it, but to me, it's like wearing heels to mop the floor. I'm outside taking care of the chickens and animals. Who wants to wear make-up for that?

I have tattoo eyeliner so I suppose you could say that I do. But to put it on everyday, no. My routine is dependent upon what I have to do that day. I always wear a moisturizer with sunscreen. During the winter I might wear a tinted one if I am feeling really pale and washed out. If I am working on a client site than I will usually put on some mascara. If I need more than I might put on something more but usually not. Lipstick, yeah usually but I actually use a stain so I don't have to put it on more than once a day, then a light gloss over the top. I will glam it up for a night out with my husband. This is primarily because he likes me "cleaned up" as he calls it. It is fun I must admit.

I like to wear makeup and use it on most days. I must say that my look is more natural, so I don't pile on the makeup. I don't like feeling like I have stage makeup on. I think that makeup is a bit of a pick me up on the days when you are not looking so great. I know that some people disagree with me on this statement and believe that women are beautiful with or without makeup. I have to say that you are more beautiful if you think you are beautiful. I also think that you should do whatever makes you feel best about yourself. If that means wearing makeup whenever you want, I'm all for it.

I always wear eyeliner and mascara. Other than that, nope, I don't wear makeup everyday. If I am going out to something special, I will put on more makeup.

i don't really wear make up, only when i have important or special events to attend. most of the time i just wear powder and lipstick to give my face some colour. sometimes i wear eyeshadow if i have time. i rarely wear blusher too

No I don't. I work from home. So that eliminates one need for it. I usually wear it if I am going out with my hubby. For him I make the effort. Or if there is a special event, other than that, no need really.

To go to work (2 mintues tops) - I wear powder foundation and eye liner. To go to the store or just out running around (3 mintues tops) - Powder foundation, eye liner, masscara and lip gloss. To go out to dinner, or movies or where ever (10 mintues tops) - Foundation, eye liner, eye shadow, mascarra, lip liner, lip stick and gloss. So yes I wear make up every day and it doesn't bother me to put it on. It doesn't take long.

I don't wear makeup everyday anymore but I used to. I got sick of looking like a Jezebel and plus concealer and foundation makes my face break out. Now the only makeup that I wear is eyeliner, lipstick or gloss and mascara on occasion. Sometimes I wear it around the house and almost always when I leave the house to go somewhere.
