Doesn't anyone wear a full (made-up) face everyday? I swear every time I read a post about make-up trials the bride says she barely wears any on a day-to-day basis.

I wear make-up every single day. Office appropriate, but foundation, eyeshadow/liner, lipstick (or gloss). I cannot possibly be the only one. AND, I am not afraid to go a little more dramatic for my wedding.

It doesn't matter and I'm not criticizing anyone, but it's just funny to me since so many people say it (and preface their trial experience with that info).

    I don't wear any make-up at all on a daily basis, but I don't know a single other girl who doesn't. You are not alone

    I wear eye make up- shadow, liner, mascara. That's it. I never wear anything on my face.

    I wear foundation eye liner and mascara on a daily basis. My wedding is too far away for me to think about what kind of make up I want yet.

    I used to go the whole nine yards but it just took up too much time in the mornings. Now I only make up my eyes. Primer, shadow, liner and mascara.

    I wear foundation and concealer to even out my skin and I will throw on some blush and mascara to look alive. I look ill without any makeup at all.

    I see half and half in my world. I wear little to no makeup on a daily basis so when I did my makeup trial I was really concerned about the amount that was put on me. Any amount feels foreign to me but I do want the natural glowing diva look and I can't get that bare faced at all.

    Thank you admitting that, Liz! I hear so many girls hating on women that wear makeup to the gym. I'm like "mind ya business". I don't cake it on but I'm not going anywhere with a bare face.

    I wear makeup if I'm having a bad skin day. Sometimes I don't need any at all. But I think I'm one of the folks who inspired the board to begin with, haha! Most women in my life don't wear any makeup at all, but I'm out in a rural area, which may account for that.

    Oh heck yeah! Foundation, eye liner, LOTS of mascara, a bit of blusher, and lip gloss. I've gotten lazy over the past year or so and haven't been putting on eye shadow for work... I still use eye shadow primer though so it kinda looks like I'm wearing eye shadow.

    I don't wear much, even if I do wear make up. But generally just a little undereye coverage of some sort to cover the bags and circles, use a BB cream half the time, maybe a little mascara, otherwise just a regular moisturizer. When I'm working full time I will wear more on a regular basis. But since I'm home full time at the moment, there's nobody to impress. lol (Plus I've found that I get carded more when I go barefaced which makes me wonder about what limited make up skills I have! LOL)

    I wear mascara everyday. Sometimes I wear eye liner and even some eye shadow, but definitely not an everyday thing. If we are going out or its a special occasion, I will add some blush as well.

    Paris: I noticed that, too! I was thinking it's probably because the women who don't wear it daily are more nervous about having "so much" on for their wedding day and post for needed moral support.

    Katrina, that's a pretty insightful observation. I hadn't thought of that!

    I've noticed it as well. lol.

    I wear make up everyday. I'm talking primer, foundation, powder, blush, eyeliner, eye shadow, mascara - the whole thing.

    I'm not very good at eye makeup though so I'm hoping to go bold with it on my wedding day - I only had a sort of half-assed trial so I'm hoping it will be okay on my wedding day. If not, I'll just add to it myself!

    I don't wear any makeup at all on a daily basis, but I have plenty of friends that won't leave the house without makeup on. I even knew a girl in high school who wore a minimal amount to bed "just in case." To each their own!

    I never wear foundation.

    Most days I just wear mascara for work. I will do more for when I go out, but it's def not an everyday thing.

    Eta: I'm glaming it up for the wedding though!

    I don't wear makeup, but most of my friends do on a daily basis.
