Most days, nothing other that a good skin care routine. If I'm going out, sometimes tinted moisturizer (or light foundation), blush, followed with a dusting of powder foundation to minimize shine, mascara and light lip color. Takes about 5 minutes... nothing like I used to do on a daily basis prior to marriage, kids and RA..

Before I got RA, I used to wear eye liner, mascara, blush and lipstick or lip gloss to work but when I got RA, it hurt to do my eyes so I gave up on it and never went back (that was in 2004) but if I'm going to work or somewhere special I usually put on lipstick or lip gloss ahead of time.
I sometimes wonder if I should figure out what kind of and colour of foundation to try but it's too difficult to figure out and like Cyndi, my face is naturally young looking and doesn't require too much help.
I gave up on makeup YEARS ago. I do put on some powder if we are going out to dinner or something, but just to keep me from being all shiny. Since I don't leave home often, I tend to not wear any makeup because I sweat profusely while walking (97 degrees today at 10:35am).
When I worked, it was powder and some lip gloss or a light color. But I always eat that off, so I don't have it on all day.
And its not makeup, but I haven't put any hair "products" on my head since my BFF got married when I was 20. No hairspray, mousse, gel... nothing. For some reason, hairspray makes me sweat. It makes me feel like my pores can't breathe and I go into a complete sweating fit and its like laying a hot, wet blanket over me. YUCK!

I find I'm wearing it less and less. I used to wear it regularly...these days I wear it rarely. It's too much trouble to put it on and I tend to either sweat from a hot flash or have my eyes get teary and it messes it all up.
I do...I wear mineral make-up (the only thing that doesn't make me break out....yes, when my mom told me my skin would stop breaking out once I became an adult, she was wrong)...concealer, foundation, powder and mascara...takes me less than five minutes to put it all on in the morning.
