What kind of make up do you wear? - August 18th 2013, 06:29 PM

FOR THE QUIZ!! --ok so I have allowed multiple answers to accomodate 1: your typical makeup style and 2: whether or not you wear foundation. I know I can't stop people, buuuut I'm not intending for people to choose like 3 of the "types" of make up, I just can't have 2 different polls on one post

I personally like minimalist make up, a natural look I guess, a little mascara, a pinky lipstick (isn't to noticeable) and maybe eyeshadow (I have a light coloured one that isn't super obvious) and eyeliner......

On days I want something less minimal I tend to go with bronzey or goldey colours or smokey colours (so grey or dark green)...

I don't wear foundation at all... ever... every kind I've tried, even ones intended for sensitive skin, have dried out my skin right away, like I'll use it for a day and bam, dry skin and it only gets worse if I keep using it....

I avoid using eyeliner because I exercise a lot and eyeliner tends to be the worst for just kind of smudging and not being as "perfect" as it was AND it's the hardest to get off at the end of the day....

Feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat or have questions

I wear foundation. The years I was depressed I didn't take good care of my skin, so I have to cover up all the nastiness. I usually wear a neutral eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara. I have to fill in my eyebrows as I'm naturally blonde but dye my hair darker. I don't usually put anything on my lips other than lip balm, unless i'm going out somewhere nice.

The most I do on a daily basis is a little bit of eye liner & eye shadow, fixing up eyebrows (whether that's filling in or plucking), & mascara. Sometimes lip gloss.

None usually.

I've never really been into it much, but occasionally like for school or if I'm in a mood i'll wear some like eye shadow, mascara, lip gloss etc. Anytime I have any my little sister usually gets into it and ruins it so....

I mostly wear none these days...it's too much effort to put on and take off everyday.

If I'm going out somewhere or if I can be bothered I usually just put liquid eyeliner on the top lid and mascara on, occasionally I'll use a light powder foundation.

I typically wear makeup a couple times a week. I like to try and give my skin a break if possible.

When I do wear makeup, I fill in my brows, put concealer on any trouble spots, use a peachy blush, eye primer, smokey grey eyes with pearly white highlight, black eyeliner on my upper lash line and lower waterline, black mascara, and peachy lipstick.

I don't wear foundation unless I am going to a party or somewhere fancy because I have sensitive skin.

Foundation, mascara, usually eyeliner. They're my everyday make up bits and bobs.

If I'm heading out I'll usually add darker eyeshadow, eyebrow pencil, blusher, powder, very occasionallyyyyy lipstick.

I wear makeup when I go to work (so, every day). I like to look professional and put together. So nothing too dark or smoky, mainly just to highlight my features.
I put on BB cream by Bobbi Brown (it's amazing, I love it), bronzer, some blush, eye shadow (I love my Naked2 palette by Urban Decay), eyeliner (I like it slightly winged), and sometimes mascara. I fill in my eyebrows every day as well, because my hair is dyed darker than natural. Later on in the day if I feel like it I'll go to the bathroom and put on some tinted lipgloss.
Putting on makeup is one of my favorite things. I like to think I'm pretty good at it

All I really wear is some foundation and powder to set it. I can't be bothered with eye makeup anymore.

Haha, alright I don't wear foundation first of all, I have very sensitive skin and I don't think I need it. Second, I do wear make-up, I sometimes just go with heavy black eyeliner, but other times I'll go with some blue or black or maybe tan eye shadow. Or blue eyeliner, just to be different. And when I'm feeling like it, I'll wear very vibrant red or dark red lipstick Usually though, I go with a goth or edgy make-up look. Think Effy Stomen (from the show Skins), or when I'm going darker, Taylor Momsen (from the band The Pretty Reckless, if you're familiar with it haha)

It depends. In the summer, I usually don't wear much because it'll come off anyway. If I'm really depressed, I won't bother because it's too much effort.

Sometimes I wear foundation, it depends on the mood. Most of the time I stick with a pretty light brown to go with my eyes (my eyes change color) Along with black eye-liner and mascara. I usually wear lip gloss, too.

I usually just do eyeliner, if even. Sometimes eye shadow. (I usually screw that up though, so I try not to. ) Sometimes I wear lip stick, rarely though. I guess it's whatever I'm feeling.

Just a few of my favorite Marilyn Monroe quotes

I sometimes wear foundation, mainly on a night out, but they don't happen often.
I also rarely wear make up.. but when I do I wear gothy/heavy dark make up. Although atm I seem to be loving light purple with dark purple corners and then black liquid eyeliner

My spelling is terrible, so I'm sorry for any spelling mistakes in my posts

For school/everyday: BB cream, eyeliner (pencil on waterline, liquid or gels on eyelid), lipbalm.tinted lipbalm.

Going out, daytime: All of the above + powder, brow pencil, more eyeliner, neutral eyeshadow.

Going out, night/evening: All of the above but with heavier eyeshadow, maybe mascara, more eyeliner, lipstick.

I'm perfectly normal; it's the rest of the world that's insane.

I don't usually wear any make up, though I do normally wear foundation for work because I get really hot, at the time of year anyway, and it stops my face getting sweaty. If I do wear make up it's just eyeliner and eyeshadow, usually a bright or dark coloured eyeshadow. Not many neutral eyeshadows suit me, I only have a few soft slightly shimmery pinks, browns and stuff look horrible on me.

I go through phases. For the past couple of years I haven't worn any kind of makeup (apart from maybe eyeshadow, mascara, and lip balm when going out, which is a rarity) but then I find my old eyeliner and am all "Ohh I like this!" so at the moment just that and occasionally mascara if I can be bothered.
When I was 15 I went full out with the dark eye makeup but I never really got the hang of liquid eyeliner so gave up on all that. And absolutely no foundation ever. I've seen many oompa loompas in my time, I don't want to screw it up and become one too.
