Cosmetics Confessions: Do You Wear Foundation Every Day?

By Sheila Arkee

Okay, ladies & gents, it’s time to dish at our weekly open post. Pour the coffee, go get a slice of apple crumb pie, we’ll be here for awhile.

I don’t often wear a medium/full coverage foundation with a fully made up face. Don’t get me wrong, I adore the look, but it’s a time issue. You know how it goes with morning routines and time flying by. On those days I’m either sporting a BB cream or just plain sunscreen. The weekends are when I’ll spend a little more time perfecting my look with a heavy duty foundation

How often do you wear foundation?

    I used to do full face makeup, often with vibrant colors and bold looks to work but that changed when my scheduled moved from a 9-5 to a 7-3. I keep it pretty basic: bb cream (I don’t own foundation), concealer as necessary, brows, chapstick & gloss or lipstick, mascara. If I have time (which usually means in the carpool) I’ll throw in a bit of contouring which I also use on my eyes in lieu of eyeshadow.

    Sometimes on weekends I get an itch and go full face! But that’s a luxury for lazy afternoons, I have less time on the weekends to do my face then I do the week. If I have time for my face I’m likely to spend it on other deserved skin routines like a kaolin mask.

    Yes, kaolin masks are a must! I was just thinking about doing one myself.

    In the Wintertime, when I am fair, I like to use Bare Minerals. It’s so easy and quick! In the Summertime, when I’m tan, I usually use a tinted moisturizer and concealer. For nights out I will put on a full face, but these days, that’s not too often! Haha.

    I prefer a full face of makeup. Give me full coverage foundation and a load of mascara and I’m a happy camper. I definitely do like to let my face breathe, so on my weekends I don’t tend to wear anything past mascara and lipgloss.

    Honestly, I only wear foundation MAYBE once a year. Usually it’s closer to every 2 years. I’m just very, very fortunate to inherit the skin I have.

    I always have the intention to try and wear it more often, but I just don’t. I’ve thought about trying Bare Minerals because one problem I have is most foundations just don’t match my skin well. I’ve got serious yellow undertones that just always end up being weird. A few times a year I’ll wear a tinted moisturizer.

    I’ve just recently gotten into wearing foundation and trying different types. If I wake up early enough and feel like it, I’ll wear it just for the sake of wearing it. Or if I’m having a bad breakout day, I’ll wear it for some cover and confidence. Other than that, I tend to wear it on weekends. I sing at my church and there are a lot of bright lights and cameras and it just makes me feel more put together.
