To leave myself enough time to do school work, I usually only go out one day of the weekend (if that). If I’m going out somewhere special, I’ll wear a full face of makeup โ€“ย meaning more makeup than I’d normally wear to, say, class. If I’m just going to get the groceries, it’s moisturizer and sunscreen and that’s all.

I like to give my skin at least one makeup-free day a week to breathe, and that tends to be Sunday.

Nothing changes I wear what I like no matter the day. If im home all day I dont wear any makeup of course

it only is less makeup if i’m lazy and sleep in a little longer before school! even then i try to have as much fun as i can with it even if i have 10 minutes before i need to leave!

I work hospital shifts, so weekends are often work days for me, too. As a result, my makeup doesn’t really differ much – I may just go lighter on the face products, as I’m often working in areas where foundation may rub off on face masks and whatnot. My workplace is pretty lax on makeup, so the only thing I have to avoid is the really crazy colors. ๐Ÿ™‚

About half the time, my makeup stays pretty much exactly the same from weekday to weekend. The other half of the time, I wear a lot less makeup on the weekends. Like maybe just some tinted SPF for the times when I’m just grabbing lunch with my boyfriend or when we’re going out to buy cat food.

I only wear makeup when I go to work or when I go out, because my skin is too sensitive. I go to work two days a week so it doesn’t matter whether it’s weekday or weekend.

Weekends are my time to have fun with my brighter colours. I might reach into my bag of loose minerals and pick something at random and make a look around that colour.

I tend to be more creative with my makeup on the weekends. I would be more wiling to try more funky things and brighter colors. If I go out a night, I will wear darker colors.

Yes and no (how’s that for a non-committal reply?). Because I spend a fair bit of time at the gym and also at my yoga studio, practising hot yoga, and I go to these activities from home (rather than heading to them after work, as I do on weekdays), I obviously wear a whole lot less on my face (though still sunscreen or a sunscreening mineral powder, as well as concealer since leaving the house without it is almost out of the question, and some lip gloss), while during the week, I arrive with my “work day makeup” still on, though I don’t wear mascara if I think I’ll be going to yoga. Anyway, on weekends, I go to these activities with minimal stuff on my face BUT I also have more time on weekends so when I get home, even if we’re just going for coffee or to drop in on friends, I will have both the time and the inclination to take a bit more time and maybe be a bit more flamboyant that I would with the makeup I wear to work.

Usually yes. I go for a natural office look with hopefully flawless skin, a light eye and a gloss or shiny lipstick. On weekends I either go a nearly no-make-up-look only using tinted moisturizer and mascara or for a full face with color. The weekend is my time to experiment with colors I shouldn’t wear at work.

I tend to wear really light/sheer/creamy stuff on weekends – the goal being not to pick up a makeup brush and get everything applied quickly and seamlessly.

I will amp up eye makeup for a weekend night out, but those are rare these days.

If I’m going out on the weekend I wear a full face vs the weekdays I’ll go out with just eyeliner most days.

I almost never wear makeup on a day to day basis while going to school. But I do put on some light makeup on the weekend, especially if I’m heading out. ๐Ÿ™‚
