Since makeup gets in my eyes and stains my clothes, I generally don't wear much of it to school. I usually wear foundation, some tainted lip gloss, eyeliner, a little eyeshadow, and occasionally mascara. What about everyone else? How much makeup do you all generally wear to school or work? And how long does it take you to apply all of it in the morning?

It varies for me. Most of the time I just wear some blush to work. There are days where I might wear e/s and mascara - depends on how I'm feeling. Lipgloss/color I can usually slap on in the car on my way. Most times it's gone within 5 seconds of my first cup of coffee so I don't bother so much with it at all.

Now if I'm going out after work or on weekends somewhere, I might put on more - all depends on where or what the occasion is too!

Since it's mostly just blush - a minute or two. If I were to do the whole enchilada - maybe 20 mins total.

I usually don't wear much make up at all. Even to work or when I was attending school.

You would think w/the amount of make up I own I'd wear it all the time or tons of it but nope I don't.

I wish I had more places to go. I love wearing MU but as a stay at home mom I don't get to wear it that much.

I keep it fairly light - and lately it's pretty natural looking as far as colors go. If you're concerned about your makeup staining your clothes - have you tried mineral makeup?

I rarely wear makeup unless I feel like crap and think I look horrible, then I wear nuetral colors during the day and wear more dramatic eye shadow. For both day and night, I like to use Maybelline mascara, kiehl's lip serum day and night and anything MAC.


Are there cosmetics that don't stain the collars of my shirts?? I ruined a lot of oxford shirts with my powder :-(

I just use ELF foundation to even up my skin more. Then pressed powder. I also use ELF facial shimmer whip, but they don't make that anymore. I put some eyeshadow, mascara(sometimes) and eyeliner. Oh and lip balm or lip gloss.

I wear concealer under my eyes. A nude shimmery shadow on my lids. A dark black liner on my upper water line. Then I curl my eyelashes and apply black mascara. That's my usual look. I really like it because it gives more definition to my lashes, makes my blue eyes look bluer, and it doesn't take any longer than 5 minutes. Although, if you start to do this it'll take a little while for your upper water line to adjust to the application.

P.S. I'm a student as well.

If you have a good routine you can probably apply a pretty good job in like five minutes for day wear. I highly suggest Bare Minerals- I have seen such a HUGE improvement in my complexion (no break outs) since I started using it. If you go to the Ulta stores they color match you for free and teach you how to use the system- I think its amazing- I recommend every woman try this product!

I only use a bit of Compact Powder and Lip balm, or maybe Mascara. But it always smudges my face.. so none at all sometimes.. go with your natural look, make-up is just a mask..

make up is okay as long as you don't use it too much- it probably ages your skin though. just put on a little foundation to smooth out skin, mascara and blush. thats a good day time look.
