I don't wear makeup around the house, just light moisturizer.

When I go out my makeup routine takes only minutes, light foundation to even out complexion, light powder, blush, eye liner ( look best in blues and greens) and lip gloss.

I don't use mascara, or lipstick. never tried false eyelashes.

I used to do a light, but full range of makeup. During my cancer treatment, lost all hair including eyelashes and brows - with my very fair complexion I looked like an alien. A wonderful group called "Face in the Mirror" visited me and did a total make-over using only biologic, organic products from cleansers to moisture creams to cosmetics. They're a non-profit that helps women undergoing cancer treatment feel better about themselves by being able to smile when they look at their reflection in the mirror. They give you full-sized bottles/jars of all the products they used and will also fit and give wigs, hats and scarves - all totally free. That snapped me out of my "ugly" funk and I began at least using the moisturizer to hydrate face and body. I went in for 'permanent makeup' - tattoo-like eyebrows, eyeliner and lip color - and all I had to do was dab on a bit of gloss and I was done. That was 3 1/2 years ago, and even after lap swimming or a full workout at the gym, I still don't need more than a bit of gloss and blush to feel and look like I spent a lot more time at it.

I used to not leave the house without the full gamut of makeup plastered all over my face - foundation, blush, powder, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lip liner & lipstick. But at some point I stopped wearing it little by little - first the mascara & eyeliner went because my eyes itched so much. Then the eyeshadow. Next the lip liner & lipstick. Then the foundation, I just put a little blush & powder on. And eventually those went by the wayside. So now I don't wear any makeup. I'm sure I would if it were a really special occasion, but being a "biker chick" I don't find myself in those situations very often anymore! People tell me I have beautiful skin and don't need makeup. I just feel like if you don't like the way I look, you're welcome to look somewhere else! This is who I am, with or without makeup.

When I was younger, I wore it almost every day, but in the last 10 years, I've changed my habits. I think that started when I had cancer the first time around; going through chemo and everything, and having a bald head at the time, I just didn't care, and even when I got better, I was so use to not bothering with makeup, that I just got out of the habit, though for work, I would use concealer (I've always had dark circles under my eyes), and depending on if I felt like it or not, I would use eyeshadow, blush, mascara, and lip gloss.

Now that I am no longer working, I don't bother with makeup most days. I usually put concealer on under my eyes if I am going out. I haven't done eyeshadow, mascara or blush for a long time. I wear glasses, so people usually don't notice if I have eye makeup on anyway.

Sometimes, if I want my skin to look a little more evenly colored and less pale, I will use a BB cream. I use lip gloss fairly often.

I wear it everyday even if I don't plan on going anywhere. Makeup today has many ingredients that are good for the skin so why not? takes me about 10 min. if that. I always wear 30 SPF which I get in my Gamier moisturizer and then top with bare Minerals.
Tried false eyelashes in the 70's. Hated them as they kept falling off in my food. lol Then tried them about 3 yrs ago when I lost a large portion of them on one side due to sneezing while curling them. Yep...strange but true. Again, they didn't work right so i threw them away and suffered with it for 3 mo.

I do not wear makeup every day. Just for special occasions. I use base, blush, lipstick, and coverup for the circles under my eyes. Sometimes I will wear eye shadow and mascara. Mascara sometimes makes my eyes tear. It usually takes 5 - 10 minutes to put on. I have never tried false eyelashes. I have been blessed with nice eyelashes and never needed to enhance them. I always put on a sun protection moisturizer. That is an every day thing for me.

I wear make-up most every day, but not a lot. Just a little mascara & eye shadow. It takes about 5-7 minutes to put on my make-up. Sometimes I just don't feel like it, so I'll just put a little mascara on & that's it.

Keep smiling!!

I do for special occasions and when we are taping TV episodes or news photos for work. I don't use much - Bare Minerals face powder, shadow, mascara, overall powder, & lipstick. Takes under 10 minutes to brush it on.

In my early 20s, false lashes were a fad so I tried them. Wore them for about a month, then my interest waned...as it does with most things.

Do you wear makeup? How much, and about how long does it take to apply? Do you wear it for everyday, or just when you go out somewhere? Have you ever tried false eye lashes, if so are they difficult to put on or remove?
