Well I don't work so there's that. I wear makeup around 3 times a week. Yellow powder base, mineral foundation, eyeshadow, Chapstick. If I'm feeling special eyeliner. Mascara hurts my sensitive eyeballs and you can't see much under my coke bottle glasses lenses. For the better part of my twenties black smokey eyes were a must. My inner soccer mom doesn't need that anymore I guess.

Full face everyday I work. I would feel weird showing up to work with no makeup on--and it's just not me. But if I'm not working, I could go full-face or I could go mascara and lipliner/lipgloss only.

I change the colors depending on what I'm wearing, but otherwise, full face every day. I work as an executive assistant to a supervisor who dresses very conservatively and "dressed up" every day, so I follow his lead. I think part of the reason he hired me was that I dressed the part.

In my last job I varied it a lot more.

I'm with Jess in that I probably only wear makeup 3 times a week, since I'm home with the kids most days.

I dont go anywhere where I have to see or talk to people without makeup.

I never wear full on foundation. I spot conceal. I layer blush, a stain, a powder, and a shimmery cream for a highlighter. Eyeliner can be blue, brown or black and either pencil or powder. A few layers of mascara and some lip balm.

A more 'done up' look involves thicker liner, more mascara, and some shadow in the crease of my eye lids - same color options as the eyeliner. And lip gloss.

No variations outside of whats listed above.

When I worked in an office, I always wore some makeup, but it varied depending on my mood. Sometimes I would wear very basic stuff (foundation, mascara, blush, clear gloss), and other days I would go all out. I changed my hairstyles a lot, too. I kinda do the same thing now even though I work at home (although if I don't have to be anywhere, I skip makeup altogether sometimes).

It's too humid to wear makeup right now, so my answer is no.

More or less. I haven't gone to work bare-faced since the late 90s.

Mostly, yes. It's always eyeliner and a lipgloss at least for me. The lip colors may vary but they are always around the same pink family.

I always do black waterproof eyeliner on upper and lower lids sometimes with black eyeshadow on the eyeliner to set. Right now I'm switching between urban decay 24/7, a make up artist one and milani waterproof one. So far milani's is the best but mua is close and easier to smudge. Urban decays still runs at the end of the day. Lately Ive been adding mascara.

I usually wear the same lipstick and or lip gloss, I might change it up.

MAC studiofix powder under eyes and sometimes blush if I want to look extra nice.

For those who live in hot climates (I'm talking about in a very hot, humid landlocked state. Temps in the 90s and up with 80%+ humidity), what do you wear during the summer? Even my mascara starts to run on me. At the end of the day, I look like I've been crying.

I work in an office that's airconditioned so it doesn't affect me. In the mornings it's not that hot. If i get out for lunch, I just wipe my face a little afterwards. Mascara has never run on me, that's odd. It's only eyeliner I've had issues with and the ones I have did okay staying outside all day in 94 degree humid weather.

Usually, though I do change up the eye and lip color depending on what I'm wearing. My eye make up is mostly in neutral tones, usually the in the same eyeshadow pattern: light color on the inner lid and under the brow, medium color in the crease, medium to dark color on the outer lid, sometimes a really dark color or a bright color in the outer-v, black eyeliner on the top lid only, thick mascara, brows slightly filled with eyeshadow..

Sometimes, I'll do a simple two-color look with liner and mascara if I'm in a hurry.

My concealer, foundation and blush are always the same.

Depends on my mood and how much time I have. Most of the time "full face" just means concealer (wee, pimples!), eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, mascara. But sometimes I will bare my face to the community college. But who cares when I have bangin' hair? =p

I think I'm just overly sweaty and oily.

I have really oily eyelids, too, and primer only helps a little.

Yes. I wear the same makeup everyday even when I'm not working. A little foundation powder, bronzer, blush, and mascara. I'm only 22 and I like to look as natural as possible.

I just don't go outside. I mean that. I walk from the parking lot to the office in the morning, then reverse it in the evening. Other than that, I stay indoors all day.

My mascara never melts, but my foundation and powder feel totally gross on those hot humid days.

I live in San Antonio - temps in the 100s/humidity in the 80%s. For months on end. Gross.

I live in Louisiana and part of my job requires me to be outside at least an hour a day. I've been trying to find any make up that won't slide off but not much can hold up to that heat and humidity.

With that I still put on make up every morning: Foundation, neutral eye shadow, eye liner, and lip stick/tinted balm.

I always have a full face of makeup, instead on the weekends during the day. I usually go bare.

For school I wear:
foundation, concealer, mascara, highlighter, bronzer, blush, setting powder. Sometimes I put black eyeliner on my waterline (top lash) because it makes my lashes look fuller or I add eyeshadow that's the same color as my skin.

Work:
Foundation, concealer, mascara, highlighter, bronzer, blush, eyelid primer, eyeliner, eyeshadow, filled in eyebrows, setting powder

I go for this look:


Besides I use black eyeliner and I choose matte lipstick that's a little darker than my lips and top it with lipgloss in middle.

Clubbing/Night:
I set my makeup gun to whore, LMFAO.
I always wear my makeup like this when I go out with falsies, etc. And I contour my face a little more (with bronzer) than I usually do.
