    haha…after voting here I thing I need to give my face a rest. I wear makeup every day of the week. Although I don’t wear foundation (except when i go out on Saturdays) and my work makeup is more sutble. I just feel naked without makeup…

  2. I would have to say everyday. However most of the time this might only be a bit of eyeliner to make me look more awake! My skin has been pretty good for a while so I have been trying to stop using foundation as often!

    Thought i’m only 14, i ALWAY’S wear make-up.
    i mostly wear really natural. Unless it’s a special occasion then i go a bit draker.

    But alot of times i copy the looks from temptalia.

  4. / days a weeck. I can not live without my mascara.

  5. Well, my standard makeup routine is everyday I wear foundation, blacktrack liner on inside of upper lash line, mascara, fill in my brows(I just started doing this about a month ago for the first time in my life, Im 27), a little blush, and just some chapstick of clear gloss. This is my work makeup, I’m a correctional officer at a men’s prison in Northern Cali. so eyeshadow and lipstick or colored gloss is just too much. So, on my days off I try and do up my eyes even if I’m not going anywhere(which unfortunately is usually the case I have a 6mo. old daughter) just cause I love it so much I can’t let my eyeshadow collection go to waste, I have 70 something MAC shadows and still growing!

  6. I wear makeup all week for work…I don’t think my co-workers have EVER seen me without makeup, lol. Generally on the weekends I dont wear any unless I am going out…just running errands I don’t usually wear anything, or I just wear mascara and lip balm. Don’t ya know, the days wear I wear nothing at all, I run into someone I know? Murphy’s Law!

    I wear make-up mon-fri(if i’m going out on the weekend ..then yuppers) …I work and I like to look alive ..ASAP ..and make-up does that for me lol.

    Everyday!!!
    I dont wear makeup if I am sitting all day at home or when I am sick.

      i’m with badkitty. i think the only people who have seen my bare face are 1) my (immediate) family 2) the people in the neighbourhood. there is no way i’m going put powder on just to buy the papers or a carton of milk from the convenience store.

    • lol! I wear more makeup when I end up sitting at home all day!

  9. Julia

    I wear makeup everyday except for Sunday. I like to give my skin a break on Sundays, although I may throw on a little mascara.

  10. I love makeup! I wear it almost everyday!

  11. Amanda

    This question is way too vague…. I just cant leave my house without eyeliner and mascara. But on my days off I do put on a full on face. What can I say I LOVE makeup!!!! ;-)

  12. Kris

    Always for work and during the week. On weekends, I give myslelf a break, unless I go out. No makeup needed for yard work:) I do always wear lip gloss though.

  13. Ashley

    I wear concealer, foundation, eyeliner and mascara everyday, and usually also full eyeshadow, I work at a vet clinic and get to wear brightly coloured scrubs and I like to match my makeup to them!

  14. Ashlee

    Probably only 3 or 4 days a week. I don’t go anywhere much anymore (I babysit since my mom works nights), so I don’t have a reason to wear it most days.

  15. viv

    it really depends.
    during school days i’ll probably not wear full make up.. sometimes i just line my eyes or wear a bit of gloss. and even then i only do that maybe 1 or 2 days within the 5.
    when it’s a holiday though, i’ll wear it more often – depending on how much i go out : )

  16. Hey Cristine,

    Well its almost everyday i wear makeup but without foundation and heavy bases.It also really depend on my mood sometime just liner and lipglass and sometime whole makeup.Yes iam very MOODY.

    zZAINY..

    I tried not to wear makeup everyday. but we don’t have choice for the working-days and the dating-night. For some of these days, I may wear less color as I wanna keep everything simple. It depends on my schedule and mood. And I will get ride off all the colors as soon as I got home.
    I don’t think makeup can damage our skin. But it can be a shocking when you saw your pale face and dark circles from the mirror

    I wear MU to school everyday + work on Saturday. That basically includes; lipgloss, eyeliner, and some eyeshadow. I only do up the foundation, blush, etc for special occasions.

  19. Chica

    Full make up for work – now that I’m using mineral foundation my skin seems to like it rather than freak out! At the weekend just eyeliner and lipstick.
