So I'm 16 and I'm not sure if i wear too much make up, What do you lot think?
So every day i wear: primer, Foundation, concealer, pencil eye liner, mascara, lip balm. My skin is generally good i don't get spots or anything I just conscious of a few moles which I'd prefer to keep them less visible.
Doesn't sound like too much to me. At 16 (I'm going to be 20 this month) I was going for the full-on gothic/emo look just to go to school! Oh, and moles are cute imo. :3
Foundation + BB Cream mixed
Fill in my eyebrows + set with clear mascara
Tiny bit of eyeshadow in crease + corners to make eyes look bigger
Black eyeliner pencil
Sounds like quite a lot but I genuinely enjoy applying my make up and experimenting with it. I do go out without make up on to run errands or walk my dogs but would no way go without it to meet friends/to work/socialise.
I don't really have a specific time for wearing a lot of make and it mostly depends on what i feel like, rather than actually being appropriate for the specific situation (I'm just socially akward like that haha) I might wear a full face around the house and go out for a meal bare faced.
Usually I would consider 'everyday make up' to consist of:
eyebrow pencil (ghostly pale skin and blonde hair - this would be my desert island make up, draws attention to the eyes and frames the face )
I would add a nice black slick of eyeliner or a bright lipstick if I was going for 'nice make up'.
However I am sometimes partial to those tacky gem-encrusted fake eyelashes for suitably tacky clubs
HEY! Why was I negged for this? I didn't know that my personal make up choice was so offensive...
lipbalm,tinted moisturizer(because it's summer,otherwise foundation the rest of the year),very occasionally mascara but my eyes always end up itching so not as often.I've tried lipstick but I've always felt strange wearing it somehow.
Nothing mostly, just moisturiser and sunscreen. I tend to curl my eyelashes the night before so when I wake up, they're ever so slightly curled already. Concealer sometimes to cover up a night of no sleep and if I really need to look awake, some mascara and eyeliner. I have fairly good skin and quite red cheeks and lips, so colour isn't necessary.
Going out; I go the distance. Foundation, bronzer for contouring, concealer, eye primer, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, blush, highlighter and lipgloss. Sounds like a ton, but I use neutral colours anyway, so it still looks fairly natural.

Usual day, I do my makeup to match my style, so I have a bit of a pinup retro look going on. In order:
THE FACE SHOP bb cream (sparingly, I love to show my freckles!)
Concealer if needed
Maybe blush, idk, i'm not a huge fan
Lots of nude, browns, golds, and white/cream eyeshadows
Lots of black liquid liner
Pencil for the waterline
If I'm not going to school, I'll sometimes add a bit of lipstick to give it a bit of retro glam :3
