On a daily basis I mean.

Personally I wear a wee bit of foundation (got acne scarring and red spots), a tiny bit of concealer on any dark areas, powder, pink blush and eyebrow pencil. I am off mascara at the mo as I've got an eye infection but I'm not missing it, I like looking natural.

So tell me, how much do you wear?

Bb cream, concealer under my eyes, brow pencil, pale shimmery eyeshadow, mascara, blusher. It sounds a lot when I write it down, but it takes me about 7 minutes to do the lot. And I feel so much better for it.

Mineral foundation, bronzer, blush, mascara, liner and eyebrow powder.

It would take mere minutes if it weren't for having to fill in my fair/overplucked eyebrows. The bastards.

More as I get older, but it looks like less iyswim. Takes me about 7mins too.

Tinted moisturiser/foundation, cream blusher, eyebrow pencil, a little grey eyeshadow, liquid eyeliner, mascara. I have had days where I've worn none due to eye infections (thanks dcs) but usually wear this.

None at the moment because Im just too tired to be bothered. I used to just wear eyeliner and mascara. Ive never bothered with anything more on a day to day basis because my skin does not thank me for it.

I wear primer followed by foundation, then a dab of illuminator on my cheekbones, mascara and eyeshadow in neutral tones and a lipstick of pink / red variety. Looks very natural and not obvious at all. Takes less than 5 minutes to do

Loads. Foundation, highlighter (to draw attention away from wrinkles), maybe some blusher, eye shadow, mascara, lippy. Takes 5 mins.

I wear glasses so they frame my eyes. Eye liner, brow pencil, blusher, lip stick. Takes about 5 mins.

Foundation, powder, bronzer, mascara, eyeliner.

I have worn this since I was 14. Every day unless giving birth or very ill.

Foundation and blusher.

I wear eyeliner, eye pencil ( for underneath eyes, not too much) mascara, occasionally concealer, and always lipstick, that is all.

Meant to add, I've got this down to about 4 minutes.

ClaudiaApfelstrudel Thu 17-Mar-16 12:17:38

eyebrow pencil, mascara if I have something important that day, blusher and maybe a bit of lippy if I cba

None, I'm mixed race and look like I'm wearing a little eyeshadow all the time and have a very even complexion. Bless my genetic melting pot.

Twinkie1 Thu 17-Mar-16 12:19:26

Eyebrow powder, mascara and lip gloss.

I hate the feeling of foundation and will wear it for v special occasions but day to day I only go to the gym and run around with the kids so it's not something I'd bother with.

ForeverLivingMyArse Thu 17-Mar-16 12:23:32

Primer, foundation, powder, bronzer, highlighting powder and blusher (face)

Eyeshadow (few shades blended), eyeliner (pencil or liquid depending on look) and mascara. Brow pencil and gel. (Eyes)

Lip gloss

Think that's it! Sounds loads but doesn't take more than 10 minutes.

gaggiagirl Thu 17-Mar-16 12:26:07

All of it!
Green, lilac and yellow corrector
Brow pomade and fixing gel
Eye shadow
Waterline liner, tight liner, gel liner
Lip liner. Lippy.

I can take 10 mins or an hour depending on what time I have. And yes it does take all of those products to make me look mildly average grin

I don't wear makeup every day so about 3/4 days a week I just wear botanics radiance balm then the other days If i have time I wear foundation, blusher, highlighter, eye-shadow, liner, mascara and eyebrow powder, oh and lipstick!

Nabootique Thu 17-Mar-16 12:27:37

Foundation/BB cream/tinted moisturiser depending on what coverage I need
Brow mascara

I tend to forgo eyeshadow if I fancy wearing a bold lipstick. I love gel eyeliner as well, but tend to keep that for nights out.

Foundation, concealer,blusher,eyebrow pencil,mascara and sometimes eyeliner

Drinksforeveryone Thu 17-Mar-16 12:29:32

Most days nothing except for lipsalve.

If I am going somewhere more dressy, or on an evening I will use eyeliner, mascara, maybe a brow product and some neutral lipstick.

juniperdingleberries Thu 17-Mar-16 12:29:32

Eyebrow pencil
Lip balm

I have a shimmery eyeshadow crayon and bronzer or blusher if I'm going out. Also have liquid and pencil eyeliner but not used those since before DD was born!

Moisturiser. Clinique Super Double Powder. Lip Balm

none. Have my own long lashes. Pluck brows a bit when they get messy. Wash face. Wear sunscreen. That's it.
