I don’t have much time or patience in the mornings before heading off to class, so I tend to wear the same thing every day I have class. other days, I might switch it up, but more often than not, I stick to the same ol’ same ol’. if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, yeah? :]

If I don’t have a lot of time in the morning, I just stick with one of the two basic looks I have. Otherwise, if I have some time to play around, I’ll try something new.

I change my makeup to match my outfit. I love neutral-y eye makeup (like browns and golds), but I sometimes utilize peach shades to make it less predictable.

During the a heavy work/class week, not so much. The only thing that sees a lot of variety during the work week is my lip color – that I try to change up every day. Part of it’s because I work in an IV room, so all makeup has to be cream based with no fallout, and I’m currently in an organic chem lab that technically doesn’t allow for makeup at all. (Which, I assure you, not a single woman in the class pays attention to, instructor included, but I try to keep it light.)

On my days off, however, I do get more experimental and play around more with eye makeup. Those palettes need love at some point!

that is so funny. in my orgo labs no one ever mentioned not wearing makeup. are they afraid of eyeshadow particles getting in the way of Grignard reagent formation or something? LOL.

I think it’s more a general set of concerns, like powder fall out affecting compound purity or chemical reactions between experimental materials and those in cosmetics. The class lab itself is pretty loose with the warning, but areas of the campus where they do legitimate compounding and preparation of more noxious chemicals have much stricter rules.

I like to do a different look every time I do my makeup unless I am in a hurry, then I tend to fall back on one of a few stock, never fail looks that I know can get me out the door fast and with dignity. πŸ™‚

I treat my makeup like most people treat their clothes…I plan everything out (that I plan on wearing) the night before, and I try not to wear the same thing twice in one week. I just feel like I have so many products, especially eye and cheek products, that if I don’t do at least one thing different every day I’ll never use them all and then it would just be wasting products. πŸ™‚ If makeup never expired and money wasn’t an object it wouldn’t be a problem haha

I try to do this too! Otherwise I find myself in a rush in the morning and just reaching for the same, foolproof things.

I’m exactly the same. I think through what I want to wear and I make a real effort to use everything I have. Otherwise, I’d just constantly be reaching for the last thing I bought.

I do the same thing. Every day is a different look. I am a wife and mother of three. For the folks who are always in a rush LOL

I feel the same! I try to match my makeup to what I wear or atleast colors that would complement it. I tend to plan the night before so I don’t waste too much time in the morning. The goal is to try to use something new from my stash:)

I love neutrals and sometimes tend to fall into a rut even though I own about 100 MAC eyeshadows in various colors. Makeup blogs like yours help give me new ideas and mix things up so I don’t let all those pretty colors go to waste.

I don’t wear makeup everyday, but I try to change it up as frequently as possible since I have quite a bit of makeup to get through, and to have a little creativity in my life, lol. I’ve been kind of blah with the makeup lately, though, so I have been sticking to a few looks that are all very minimalistic. Now that I have some mixing medium on hand, I am going to try to get more use out of my pigments from MAC since they are kinda sad and lonely in their little container.

Well after buying all this make-up: primers, foundations, mascara, 5 shades of blue shadow, 20 tubes of gloss and lipstick and countless blush, polish, nail foils..Yes I do change my look everyday. If I don’t, all ths stuff will go to waste.

Most of the time I’m not wearing makeup, so I guess it’s not different everyday xP But my go-to looks, if I have one, usually changes every few months. Other than that, I try to use different products and come up with different looks (usually with products I’ve recently purchased) when I do wear makeup!

Yes, almost never repeat the colour for eyeshadows but I do use the same few lipsticks …
The makeup I have will probably last for my life time!
For technique,I am getting lazy now.. I normally only do the basic (lid+outer 1/3+outer V)…
Sometimes when I am in good mood and have too much time.. I change the style too to entertain myself. πŸ˜›

It’s a matter of pride for me to change my make up every day I work. Sometimes I do twice the same makeup but not more. I really love to change an to try some new colors schemes

I change products and look every single day. I feel it really difficult to stick to the same thing for long, and I think that makeup is such a fun and creative tool to experiment with thanks to colour, textures tec…

I have a couple different ‘go-to’ looks that I have perfected for short on time/running late or just being plain lazy but I try to change it up at least once a week and try a new or updated look. I keep a couple different items (a few lipsticks, lipglosses, eyeshadows etc) in rotation and when one gets used up or is no longer in good shape, I pull out a new item.

I DON’T like to have a ton of items open/used because I am afraid I won’t ever get to them all and it irks me to know that I have 10 lipsticks on the go, or 10 cream eyeliners on the go. I guess it’s an OCD of mine?

Non, non! I’m terribly boring in that regard. I just want to look like a naturally enhanced me, with occasional classic looks like smoky eyes, etc. If I tried to be all interesting I’d own too much rarely-used makeup!

Well,I do have a couple of go-to looks but I always try to change something – most of the times I just change the lipstick color. I try to rotate my stuff otherwise I don’t get to use them all.

Yes I have to ! I have more than 40 blushes and more than 100 lipsticks so I change every day. I really love changing but I never wear too much make-up. My routine is a blush + an eyeshadow combination ( 2 or 3, sometimes just 1 ) + a pretty lipstick.

I’m always wearing a different look because I love to play in my makeup toy box. Sometimes if I’m running late for work, I have a go-to 5 minute face look but for the most part I prefer to change it up.

to work, not usually. i might mix up blush but that’s it. having to get up at five means i cut as many corners as i can…plus i cant look that fancy for work anyway!
in my personal life i mix it up a bit more since i have more freedom there!

I don’t wear makeup every day, and I used to stick to several go-to looks until I started running a blog! I don’t think anybody wants to see the same FOTDs or EOTDs every time I do them, so I try to incorporate new products and technique!
