When I'm going out, I am not ashamed to say I NEVER leave without a scrap of makeup on!! But when I'm just having a day in and don't have to go anywhere,I don't wear any.I think it gives a bit of time for my skin to breathe and I always cleanse,tone and moisturise, so my skin never gets "damaged" by the makeup that is on my face every other day! I suppose I could live without it but I wouldn't want to,its okay for people who are naturally beautiful but some of us need a little help to look our best lol!! I'm not so bothered about what other people think,thats not the reason I wear makeup,it's just without it I don't feel like myself and I feel this makes me less confident and even though that may sound a little silly to some people I am sure many people would agree!!What about mylotters do they do makeup and can they live without it

If I ever go out I must have make up on, I cannot leave the house without it on. I could not live without it, ever. When I'm in the house I won't wear any unless I have visitors round. I just love my make up to much, I am a cosmetics junkie.

i do agree. i love everything about make up. its fun! its not about changing the look but just enhancing "your" look to bring out what you are like and make your face pop.;0)

i love makeup. its all art. alot of the comments here have different opinions abiut. For me, its just to bring out your inner beauty thats all. The purpose of wearing is not to change the way you look. you could its one way to accessorize with your face and not to change or cover you up. im not insecure of what i look like i just got use to wearing make up everyday. its part of my routine especially when i leave the house but i dont look aweful wthout it either. my fiance seems to love what i look like with or without. basically accessory would be the word for it to add up what u have already. to conclude i can live without makeup but i cant leave without makeup.:)

Well I usually cleanse, tone, moisturize, and put cream on my face every day so that my skin will be nice. If it's a weekend, I usually put at least a little mascara and blush on, so that I'll look normal while still being somewhat natural. I think I can live without make up, but it's pretty hard, since I like looking nicer than usual.

yeah i can live without make up..why? because i'm still young and don't need more beautification in my face..maybe when i get old i need to used make up everyday..but as for now..I don't really care if i can used make up once, twice, thrice...what is important to me, is i have able to take a bath daily, have a facial on my face and look clean and neat..

I could live without makeup if I didn't have to go anywhere. My spouse likes me better without makeup but I like to put it on for special occasions and going places. I don't like it when women refer to putting on makeup as "putting on my face" though since that makes me feel weird, almost like they're wearing a mask or something.

I am not a make-up user. But I must say that I really like wearing lipstick from time to time. It lights my face up. Never mind what other people say. We use it because we want to feel good about ourselves and not to satisfy other people's curiosity.

I leave the house with no makeup on everyday to put on makeup just to run everyday erranads is a waste of good makeup. Noone cares what I look like when I'm shopping for groceries or pumping gas. The only time I do wear makeup is when I go out to dinner or to an event like a play or concert something of that nature where you have to dresss casual. And then its only very light blush , colored lip gloss and eyebrow pencil to give a nice point to my brows no foundation and fake lashes lip liner ect.. My husband likes the natural look and so do I.

Hi Prabhalini For me I don't use makeup very much at all I use a little eyebrow pencil to give my brows a nice point to them occasionally a little colored lipgloss but I am not into foundation and lip liner and that kind of stuff. I do also use a little blush from time to time , But I never where makeup just to go to the store or shopping I do wear very light makeup if my husband and I are going out someplace nice and the dress is casual. And in the summertime I don't see how some women can wear makeup with the humidity some of it just looks really shiney and greasy.

I wear wake up only when I'm going out where alot of people will be seeing me. I don't wear any if it's just me and my girlfriends hanging out, but I don't like guys seeing me with out make up, so if I'm going somewhere with hot guys..i always wear wake up :P I also carry my make up bag in my purse so i can just apply if I need to.

I will not leave the house with out makeup on. I feel like I'm not attractive enough to just walk out with no make up on. I'm addicted to my make up and i love it so much and am always putting it on when i leave as it makes me feel better about myself and more confident to talk to people then hiding my face behind something as it has red spots on it and not very attractive to me at all. I don't go out and buy the new products that come out, but i try and stay with the same products as i know those are the ones that work for me and i don't have to bother looking around and wasting my time at the stores seeing what other products are out and i like using the same products every day and all day.

Much like you I don't leave the house if I don't have at least lipstick on, I actually keep some in my car in case I have to leave very quickly, I can comb my hair and apply lipstick. Normally I wear a mineral powder base, a little blush, eyeliner, mascara and lipstick. When I am staying at home and not expecting to go anywhere or have visitors I wear no makeup at all. It is nice to let your skin breath and I think it is very healthy for it to have a break.
