Same here….ESP mascara bc I do it last and give my liner a chance to set. I always look in a mirror with my eyes done but something’s missing…dang mascara!

Last week I managed to leave the house with only one eye made up! I still don’t know how I did it my only excuse was it was early!

Yes- primer and powder ALL the time, and it always happens when I’m out and not going to be back in the house for awhile like school. It just doesn’t stay as long. I’ve also forgotten mascara as well, whoops! Lol!

Back when I was in middle school I once forgot to do one of my eyes (mascara, liner, etc) and only realized it when I had gotten to school… And I never carried makeup with me back then haha.
ever since then I don’t think I’ve ever forgotten anything.

I was catching the bus whilst running late to meet a friend once and had planned on slapping some makeup on on the bus trip over (I was 19…) but I left my mirror behind and couldn’t put anything on. I have made sure to budget time to get ready now and make sure I have a couple of back-up mirrors handy.

Lipstick and Mascara.
I keep telling myself I’ll wear the lipstick after I change and just before i leave the house, but it always slips my mind.

Mascara I just forget about 😛

This is the only one I really get annoyed by. Anything else won’t bother me and I won’t care about it, but knowing I went to the effort of putting on eye shadow, which I usually don’t, and that it’s not going to look as good as it could bothers me.

I forgot to pack foundation once. All I had was a heavy TM with SPF 50, as I was going to Disneyland the next day. I checked into the hotel, but didn’t unpack. I went to Sephora, and if I had realized my mistake, I could have at least picked up a sample, LOL! Now, I pack the night before, and in addition to my large makeup bag, I toss in a smaller bag of “essentials” like mascara, liner, brow pencil, and my Naked palettes.

Mascara and face primer. I once forgot to put on mascara on the bottom lashes… I realized my makeup was not right that day but it took me a little while to figure out exactly why ^^’

Definitely lipstick and foundation primer. I don’t get too concerned about forgetting lipstick, as my lips are pretty pigmented. Forgetting foundation primer is one of those instances when me chuckle and say, “Oh $#*%!” I have VERY fair skin so I need a primer to help prevent any signs of oxidation, otherwise my foundation looks unnatural. 🙂

lipstick, primer, mascara, but these are at least bearable to live w/o.
but once or twice i forgot brow….felt so wrong all the rest of my day so now i carry make up bag to everywhere.

I’ve gone out with concealer only applied to one side of my face. I literally don’t understand how it happened.

I frequently forget mascara. Perhaps it’s the last step that I typically do for my eye makeup, I simply forget about it and move on to something else!

Another one that I always forget is perfume.

And I feel really naked whenever I forget any of them. Grr. It’s annoying. I don’t typically bring out my makeup pouch too, so it’s quite a pain.

I have definitely forgotten mascara quite a few times, and I often forget to using setting and finishing powder. I often run out the door with no lip product on and just use whatever lipgloss is in my handbag too.

I often forget to put on foundation primer! I especially need it when I wear liquid foundation, which is my least worn type of “foundation” and I always get a bit “stressed” (since it takes me longer to apply than mineral powder or a BB/CC cream) and I’m so focused on whether or not it will turn out okay that I forget the primer! After that, it would be some sort of setting/finishing powder.
