I have to touch up my t-zone with powder a couple of times during a long day, and also my lip color. But never shadow, mascara, etc.

Always; it’s a habit. Although we now have so many amazing, long-lasting products available, that wasn’t always the case. Even if I don’t actually touch up my makeup, I do check it often. Besides, lip products don’t last very long on me, so those *do* get touched up often (which is why I rarely wear anything but balm).

Lip products never last on me so I keep checking those and touching them up during the day. I also touch up with pressed powder semi-regularly because my skin is combination and my chin and forehead get shiny. But I don’t touch up eye products or blush or things like that.

(Speaking of, Christine, I picked up the Hourglass Film Noir mascara the other week and I’ve decided I really like it. It doesn’t flake, smudge, smear, or anything, and it didn’t leave me with raccoon eyes when I forgot to wash it off before bed. Plus, it gave me long black lashes. Is it still your favorite?)

I reapply lip products through the day as needed. On a really long day, sometimes I’ll need to touch up blush or concealer, but not often. And it depends whether I can be bothered or not. 😀

It depends on what I’m wearing. If it’s eyeshadow/blush/etc., then no. Lipcolor I will routinely touch up every three to four hours or so, in part because even the most hydrating lipsticks tend to dry me out a bit. Eyeliner, when on the lower lash line, is my most high maintenance look – I have to check it bihourly, if not every hour, to make sure it hasn’t run out of my waterline in the corners.

No, I just let it all fade away then wonder why my makeup remover wipes are still clean after rubbing them all over my face.

I usually need to reapply lipstick/gloss every couple of hours if I am wearing any, and I sometimes also reach for a blotting paper to touch up my T zone.

I always have touch up my lipstick during the day and will usually have to apply a bit of pressed powder onto my nose or, in summer, my t-zone.

Only occasionally. I will touch-up my lip color if it’s a brighter or darker one I’m wearing. It can look awful when the lipstick is gone in the middle but partly remains on the contour and in the corners of your mouth.

I touch-up my lip product a couple of times a day. I’m trying to get into the habit of touching-up my blush once a day too. I do check my makeup around lunchtime and I’ll blot if I need to. If I’m going to happy hour after work sometimes I’ll carry some makeup and try and fix my face before I go out.

I just touch up my lips and blot my face, maybe some powder. I wear primers and longlasting products so the rest of my makeup usually looks good all day. I also think its gross to touch up things like foundation and eyeshadow, I feel like I’m spreading bacteria on my face and makeup.

My oily skin seems to eat makeup so I touch up whatever I’m wearing fairly often, even eyeshadow (though primers help a bit). The weather here gets into the 40s (Celsius) in summer and I’ve found that there’s honestly no point applying foundation to my skin in that heat- I’d probably use up a bottle every week if I did. I’m very envious of how long Christine can get makeup to wear. 🙂

On the rare occasion I get to wear what I want for a regular day – not reviewing it – hence why I said very rarely and only at things like special occasions/business events, as I rarely test makeup in those settings. 🙂
