To the Foo ladies only! (With the exception of Chip and Jon)

Do you wear make up? If so, what does it usually consist of?

How often? On what occasions?

I wear mascara on a daily basis. I'll usually put on eyeliner and maybe shadow, but that's the extent of the daily makeup. It takes me 60 seconds.

On "special occasions", I might put on lip gloss.

I like to keep it as natural as possible... that way the guy isn't surprised at what he wakes up to the next morning.

hehe - with the exception of Chip and Jon. hehe


If I go out - I do - and it's your basic mascara, eyeliner (maybe), blush, gloss. no foundation, etc - hate the feel of that. My one girlfriend in high school caked herself with it so much that it cracked.

And if I do have to take the bus (won't commute on black ice/blizzard) then I do.

But this commute business does not lend itself to putting make up on before I leave the house. So I have it at work where I mostly forget it - especially since it takes me a while to cool down and so I sit - and start up the computer ... and Foo and other forums and ....

I wear make-up on a daily basis. I always make sure that I wear some mascara and lip gloss. The amount of makeup that I wear depends on the event. The only time I "glam myself out" would be for formal function.

I wear some sort of lip balm/gloss daily, but not full out make up. If I'm going out I'll do mineral make up (foundation), eye shadow, and depending on how fancy the event is possibly eye liner and lip stick. I try to keep it simple, mostly because I'm cheap and lazy

For me, just the lightest touch of lipstick is enough.

The only time I usually wear make up is for a belly dance performance. Then, its stage makeup. So, nope. No makeup here.

Hey, a guy can dream, can't he?

Just make sure you're all painted up if you ever want to come cycling with CyLowe.

I like it when ladies only wear eye liner. I mean uhhh I only wear eye liner.

everything else is unneeded.

Plus ladies, and when I say ladies I'm referring to myself. When you wake up in the morning and slather on the paint, please remember and this goes for myself, don't over do it. Please.

Jeez, that looks like stage make-up. I like to wear make up as though I'm not wearing anything on my face aka natural.

I wear makeup on weekdays for work:
concealer
light powder (dusting only - not caked on as I can't stand that feeling)
cream blush applied on apples of cheeks only
eyeliner (top lids and sometimes lower if I want the smoky look)
mascara (a MUST as my eyelashes are blond)
lipstick/gloss of some kind

Weekends:
Mascara (see above)
lipgloss

Going out:
Same as weekdays only I might put on eyeshadow if I want to look a little tart-ish

I wear makeup very rarely. Most often it is lipstick and clear mascara. Sometimes a little bit of concealer for the hereditary dark circles under my eyes. If I have to stand up in a wedding (they always ask me ), I will pay someone to get it done. Lately, I have gotten my housemate to do it. She's really skilled, and has a round face like me. There is an art to getting makeup done right for a round face. I only do that when I know billions of photos are going to be taken.

Homer's makeup gun is the most important invention of this modern era.

"Homer, you had it set on '[apparently bleeped word for 'prostitute' that starts with the letter w]'!"

But seriously, I know no one asked me, but the closer to natural, the better, in my opinion. Ideally, none.
