On a SAHM day: lip balm. under eye concealer on a very bad day
On a work day ( public sector admin): Under eye concealer, powder, eyeshadow, mascara and lipstick.

Does ANYONE use all those things in the Lisa Eldridge video, ever?

For a night out, yes.

Daily is

Primer, concealer, foundation, powder, blusher, eyeliner, mascara.

JethroTull Thu 29-Nov-12 16:14:01

Work day - BB cream, mascara, blusher

Non work day - moisturiser.

every day (even at home) I used mineral powder foundation, bronzer, blusher, eye liner, mascara and on work days I'll chuck on some eye shadow too.

DejaB00 Thu 29-Nov-12 16:19:02

At home- moisturiser

At work- moisturiser, mascara and a tiny bit of foundation on edges of nose (always red).

mrsbugsywugsy Thu 29-Nov-12 16:24:42

none - unless you count moisturiser and lip balm

Who/what is Lisa Eldridge?

For work: foundation, eyeliner, mascara
For weekend: eyeliner, mascara (and concealer if necessary)
For evening out: foundation, powder, eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow, lipstick

Deja you put red foundation on your nose? Are you Rudolph wink

TheCountessOlenska Thu 29-Nov-12 16:27:19

Every day - primer, foundation, blusher, powder, eyebrow pencil, mascara, lipbalm

Work day - might add more blusher, eye shadow, lipstick

Hmm- that actually sounds like loads but it's quite subtle!!

I see a woman on the way to work every morning who does put on the full face paint. It isn't horribly obvious but definitely over the top for a normal work day.

monsterchild Thu 29-Nov-12 16:31:14

every day - none. Moisturizer if needed. Lip balm with no tint if needed. Sunscreen if needed.
This means I can shower at night and sleep in until the last minute every day!

Bunbaker Thu 29-Nov-12 16:33:35

On a SAHM day moisturiser. On a work day - Boots no7 Intelligent Colour foundation (have recently discovered it and love, love, love it), blusher and lipstick.

Djembe Thu 29-Nov-12 16:36:05

SAHM day -
bourgeois healthy mix serum foundation
Clinique stick blusher
A 'my lips but better' lipstick

Night out -
same foundation but 2 squeezes of pump
Same blush
Dark red lipstick
2 shades of eyeshadow
Highlighter on brow bone

aPirateInaPearTree Thu 29-Nov-12 16:36:16

Loreal face cream followed by

Garnier BB cream.



I shine for about 5 mins but it calms down!

My DS 2.7 would love that, obsessed with sodding Mr Tumble!

Bunbaker Thu 29-Nov-12 17:05:12

I'm curious to know why full make up is still required on a SAHM day. Not judging, but isn't it better to let the skin breathe every now and again?

If I am not seeing anyone other than my family I don't bother with anything other than moisturizer.

QuinnFabray Thu 29-Nov-12 17:06:02

Primer, foundation, eyebrow powder, mascara, eyeliner, blusher and lipstick. Takes five minutes. Every day. It makes me feel better.

CluffyDude Thu 29-Nov-12 17:16:42

On a normal day;
Lip balm

On a night/day out,the same but with bronzer and lipstick.

I am a sahp smile

Fairylea Thu 29-Nov-12 17:20:31

Foundation. Powder. Blusher. Eyeshadow. Eyeliner. Mascara. Lipgloss.

I'm a sahm. Ex beauty consultant. Explains my make up addiction !

laptopdancer Thu 29-Nov-12 17:27:38

I just use foundation, powder (shouldnt but its a habit), blusher.
I have my eyebrow and lashes tinted to never touch them.
I dont often wear lipstick these days. In my 20's and 30's I was lipstick heavy and am finding it hard to find a shade that suits now.

laptopdancer Thu 29-Nov-12 17:29:22

I found primer doesnt stay on my skin...kind of hard to decsribe but it almost glides off

NoWayNoHow Thu 29-Nov-12 17:34:08

For a normal day, just under-eye concealer and mascara (and cover-up when I get spots) and Vaseline for lips.

If I need to be out and about out of the office, then I might use shimmery nude eye shadow, some foundation and powder as well.

For night, I do smoky eyes, kohl eyeliner and loads of mascara, and a pinkish Juicy Tube-type gloss. Or I do a shimmery nude eyeshadow base with a thick gel eyeliner with flick, and red lippy. Depends on how I'm feeling and the occasion/outfit.

idococktailshedoesbeer Thu 29-Nov-12 17:34:43

Foundation, powder, blush, concealer, mascara (I have my lashes tinted too), tinted lip conditioner. I'm a Mac addict.

AntoinetteCosway Thu 29-Nov-12 17:35:33

For work: primer, foundation, under eye concealer, blusher, mascara, lipstick. Eyeshadow, eyeliner and highlighter if I can be arsed.

SAHM days: nada!

TheCountessOlenska Thu 29-Nov-12 17:36:20

I only work two days a week - I'm not going to go around bare-faced on my SAHM days shock, I do actually go out of the house and meet friends!!
