Wearing Makeup At Home or Just When You Go Out

When my kids were young I was really busy with little ones (twin sons and a daughter which were two years apart).    I didn't have time to think about how I looked really.  When they got older I had more time for myself.  I realized I looked better wearing makeup after looking at pictures and just by looking in a mirror, ha, ha.  I don't wear a lot of makeup but a little foundation, cover stick (for under my eyes)  and blush every day.  It makes a big difference and nobody really knows I have makeup on.  It makes me feel better about myself when I look better too.  Without makeup I have a ruddy complexion I guess you would call it.  When I go out to a special occasion (which is rare) I will add eye shadow, mascara and a little lipstick.  

I'm curious if other women wear makeup every day or just for special occasions.  I know there are a lot of moms who are probably too busy like I was when the kids were little and don't even think about it.   Some women look good without makeup also.  What do you do?  Do you wear makeup daily, for special occasions, or none at all?

  1. I dont wear any makeup to work - other than lipgloss on occasion. On my days off i *might* add lipstick and a little bit of eyeliner. Special occasions its just lipstick, eyeliner and mascara and a tiny bit of eyeshadow - no crazy colors though.

    I always have polish on my toes though and about 50% of the time my fingernails are polished

  2. I wear make up when I know I have somewhere to go... I used to wear it at home ALL the time for no reason... but that's SO wasteful! LOL

  3. I wear makeup when going to work or out. However I seldom do at home, but I believe that makeup works on your confidence. Nothing wrong with putting a little something on even at home.

  4. I wear it everyday except Sat, but it only takes me 5-10 mins to put on. Thanks for linking up at Mom's Library!
