When I go out of my house (I work from home, so I stay in mostly) I do wear makeup--everything. I just feel more confident and most of all, I find makeup kind of "fun" to wear. I use a light foundation (Make Up For Ever's Face & Body) and then I use Bare Minerals Mineral Veil, plus sometimes some blush. I love Urban Decay eyeshadow, especially funky ones. I have very light eyelashes--almost white--so I always wear mascara. I feel icky when I don't.

The funniest thing is that my husband looooooves me without makeup.

I routinely wear the mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, foundation, blush, powder and lipstick - due to working in the professional business world. However, on weekends, anything goes and usually I'll wear blush, lipstick and eyeliner.

Earth mother! That's my style.

Makeup is a nuisance and gets all over EVERYTHING! Yuck. I will wear it, only when I feel that I need to dress up for some very special occasion.

Otherwise, it's au natural for me!

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Mascara - every day. Also, I wear lipstick over lip balm because I like the way lip balm feels, but want some color too. Sometimes I wear eye shadow - I think it's fun to wear it occasionally.[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana] [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]I cannot stand foundation! I have never been able to find one that looks and feels right on my skin. It feels like thick "goop" on my face, no matter how "light" of a formula I choose.[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana] [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]I'm still searching for a fragrance-free moisturizer with sunscreen. I use one that doesn't have sunscreen because I don't like the way the sunscreen formulas feel. The smell of the sunscreen bothers me as well. Maybe someday I'll find the right one...[/FONT][/COLOR]

At home, I just put on moisturizer and a tinted lip gloss. When I go out casually, I'll add mascara. When I go someplace special, then I'll add blush, eye shadow maybe a little sheer foundation.

Have you tinted your own moisturizer with a dab of foundation, before? This has worked well for me, but it's only good if you don't need much coverage.

When I was younger and more insecure, I'd wear full makeup a lot. Now, I usually just wear mascara and sometimes eyeliner and a bit of powder, but usually, just mascara. I hate the feeling of face makeup, and honesty, I think my skin has improved a lot from not wearing it.
