What make-up do you wear every day?

I'd love to know what make-up other women wear daily. I generally tend to wear moisturizer, a light foundation and lip color. If I am going out in the evening, I may use some mascara, eye shadow, and blush but don't usually wear the "full face" for every day wear.

Also, do you use hair spray? My kids tell me only "old ladies" use hair spray so my use of hair spray is really showing my age. Really??

I wear eyeliner and mascara whenever I go out in public. Usually I only wear lipstick for dressier occasions, but sometimes I'll wear it to the grocery store etc. Eye shadow only for evening. I haven't used foundation or powder in years....but when I worked in an office I put on the full face everyday. My dh prefers a natural look and I'm comfortable with that, and it sure is easier.

I think I used some hairspray a couple of years ago before going to an evening wedding, but I've never used much hairspray anyway. I think that now that there are so many other products available to sculpt or control hairstyles that hairspray isn't needed as much anymore.

When I'm home, I don't wear any makeup. In fact, I don't do much with my hair, either. Anyway, I would never dream of going out in public without mascara and my eyebrows plucked. Smile I used to use foundation and blush, but my aged face looks worse with it than without it. I've never worn lip color. As for hairspray, old fashion or not, I still use it. Have you ever used a sclupting product on your hair? Makes it feel like you poured some syrup all over it. Wink

When I am home, I also use no make-up of any kind on my face. only moisturizer.  If I go out I use a very light mouse foundation that is applied with a sponge, but VERY little.   Maybelline "Dream Smooth Mousse".    I have to have eye liner on the bottom and I have to have mascara.  I don't always use the liner on the top because I can't see well enough to apply it well...lol.  If I wear reading glasses, then I can't get it on.   Once in a while, I attempt it, if I'm going some place special.  On my lips I use only lip balm or gloss, never lipstick.
