I wish I had the kind of skin that doesn't need makeup but I don't.
Revlon Colorstay foundation in Ivory or Buff works well for me
Also Covergirl ageless foundation with Olay #205 (light) is good.

I like to use less makeup during day or at night. Actually i prefer putting an eyeliner, mascara, and little light pink lipstick, with a little moisturizer.. I never use harsh chemicals on my skin or experiment with other products as my skin is sensitive. Instead i drink loads of water to keep my skin well hydrated throughout the day which keeps my skin fresh. So that' s the way i take care of my skin.

I wear makeup every day of the week. I use mac for foundation, eye-liners and powders. I use urban decay or too faced for eye color.

I work in the cosmetics industry, so obviously wear make up. And love it!

My work routine is usually under under eye concealer (over primer), very sheer tinted moisturizer, setting powder, eye shadow (usually a darker crease, natural color lid, and brow highlighter), liner (liquid or pencil depending on my mood), mascara, and a very light dusting of blush. I also fill in my brows, more due to a scar where no hair grows in. Usually just chap stick with that.

At night, I may go heaver on the eye make up... if I'm really feeling up for it (weddings, NYE, etc), I'll wear lashes too. Depending on what I'm wearing, I may wear lip color, but typically focus on my eyes.

Reading the other responses is surprising, but it may depend on where you live (and in my case, the industry you work in!). Cosmetics/beauty industry in NYC tends to see a lot of faces with make up!

I wear makeup but rarely now. I wore makeup everyday before I have kids but now I don't have too much time except weekends.

I usually wear Iman foundation, Maybelline and L'Oreal eyeliner/mascara and Revlon Color stay eyebrow pencil and gloss.

A lot of different brands for me but I prefer certain makeup from different companies.

I don't wear any makeup, though I like the look of some lipsticks. I can't be bothered to wear any, though, even with these dark marks from left over acne.

As a guy all I can say is I wish they tasted as good as they look.

I prefer a more natural look.
If I'm not wanting to break the bank I use Physicians Formula products... but I prefer Urban Decay

Depending on how I am feeling, I might put on a bit.

Light: mascara, lip gloss, powder
Medium: above plus concealer, eyeliner, maybe blush, maybe highlighter, maybe brow pencil
Heavy: above plus eye shadow

I tend to skew towards natural, but occasionally I go for a crazy eye shadow color.

Not really into makeup, I use it mostly when I look exhausted or need to add a little polish.

I only go heavy on eyeliner sometimes. Lipstick sometimes is also heavy. (1 or the other not both)

If I leave the house I usually wear makeup of some sort.
Everyday its a natural look with a little cat eye bit.
I save the dark eyes or lips for night.
Sometimes I use the red lipstick only and some powder if my skin is pretty good.(+mascara)

Usually my daily list is: (with current stocked brands)
- concealer - nxy, maybelline, costal scents quad, elf, everyday minerals, coastal scents minerals
- powder -nyx, covergirl, elf, everyday minerals, coastal scents minerals
- liner - nxy, benefit
- mascara - elf (cheap mascaras are the same as $$$ to me)
- lip product - elf, nyx, MAC, blistex, cherry culture gloss

Sometimes:
- blush - elf, maybelline, coastal scents, everyday minerals
- eyebrow powder/wax - elf, revlon
