During the day for work, I just use Garnier BB Cream (tinted moisturiser).

I can't remember the last time I wore mascara, foundation or eyeshadow. I only tend to use make up when going out for a nice meal/event. Much prefer just a bit of tinted moisturiser.

Plus, I like my face to be the same colour as the rest of my skin 😁.

I don't wear as much makeup as I used to. I more secure with myself now. A lot days I don't even bother with my makeup and when I do finally put some on it's usually in medium light colors.

I don't like make up. Mascara feels like my eyelashes are glued together. Foundation feels so... Cake-y? No matter how thin the layer is it's like my skin can't breathe. I only wear lipstick, I love that shit. But all other make up products... No.

I don’t wear more than brow powder, concealer & powder, highlight/blush/contour, mascara & lip gloss on a normal makeup wearing day (rare)
When I go all out I’ll add some eyeshadow & false lashes + lipstick of some kind
I only do that for photoshoots when I have them, I hate wearing a full face of makeup all day, I prefer to be able to wipe my face & not be worried about smearing it

Pretty much nothing for me 6/7 days a week. 

No-one looks at me anyway.

I don’t wear makeup. I just focus my energy on staying out of the sun, incorporating gentle exfoliation into my routine, and using only high quality skincare products.

i've come to terms with the fact that most makeup just doesn't look good on me. lol i hate looking up close in a mirror and seeing my foundation all cakey and mascara flaking and shit... i still do a lot of steps/take a lot of time but i don't put a lot of actual product on. if i'm trying fairly hard i'll do just enough foundation/concealer to cover anything i have going on, eyebrow gel, thin coat of mascara, bronzer/contour, little bit of nude liner/lipstick. sometimes i'll do brow pencil, eyeshadow (but only if it's neutral brown) or eyeliner, maybe highlighter or switch the bronzer for blush. idk why i do all of this because my face ends up looking the same but i like buying makeup and the ritual of putting it on

I'm not very skilled with makeup and my eyes don't suit the popular eyeshadow heavy looks anyway, so yeah. I do a sheer/light foundation, mascara, lipstick, and maybe a small amount of eyeliner or some shiny neutral eyeshadow.

I use concealers because my dark circles are gross but I barely use any other kind of make up. Makes me look older.

Yeeeess! I usually just wear mascara and lipgloss, though if I'm going out or doing something special I put on some concealer, blush and a bit of brown eyeliner pencil

The only thing I wear is eyeliner and mascara. I have been using the same eyeliner technique for the last 5 years with the same brand of cheap but surprisingly good eye pencil lmao. It literally takes like 5 minutes including the mascara.

Before 5 years ago, when I was in high school I experimented a lot, followed a bunch of beauty youtubers and played around with different things. I don't like using foundation bc firstly my skin is luckily pretty unproblematic, but also it just feels weird on my face esp bc I tend to touch my face a lot. I love lipsticks but they dry my lips out so badly that I rarely ever use them.

Sometimes I get the urge to buy new makeup and experiment again, esp when I'm in the honeymoon phase of restricting lol but I usually end up going back to my trusty old eyeliner method in the end anyways.
