Usually BE or I mix a foundation with a little highlighter, concealer, mascara, lip gloss and blush. Sometimes I will add liner and shadow dep on my mood. That is mainly my work/everyday face. I may add a few things for night/special events lol

Yes, I would definately recommend buying the $60 starter kit that comes with brushes...I suppose some of the brushes could be substituted with others, but the run of the mill cheap powder brush won't work with the BM foundation and the BM concealer brush is AWESOME.

I work at a cosmetics counter so I wear makeup at least 4 times a week. I don't apply makeup before I go to class, though, b/c I am lazy and don't want to wake up any earlier than I have to. I wear:
BM bare vitamins
BM foundation fairly light
BM bisque concealer
BM Warmth
Nars Orgasm blush
Diorshow Mascara
BM eyeshadow
BM eyeliner (usu. soul sister)
BM lipstick/liner in one (i love this thing):
Bare Escentuals Quick-Stick
Lipgloss (usu. Lancome Juicy Gelee or BM)
BM mineral veil

I've been trying different types of make up since i could ever remember! now i'm stuck on,
1. estee lauder double matte foundation or for lighter days, clinique super fit.
2. curl my eyelashes, hardly any mascara
3. loreal liquid liner for under my eyes
4. physicians forumla dusty grey eyeshadow
5. clinique powder
6. physicians forumla multicolor bronzer (works wonders)
7. estee lauder wet/dry brow definer stuff
8. moisturizer: clinique dramatically different gel stuff

wow, never realized how much stuff i use.
But..some of those things i apply just takes 30 seconds or less.
but yeah, i paint my face everyday. Its like a part of me...can't walk out the door w/out foundation on. done it ever since i was young...will do it till i'm dead heheh

I will take that as a complement and Thank you!! but I am sure there are girls on the forum, I know on AF and definitely on MUA who make me appear ametuerish. The thing is, if you ever saw me, I don't look like I wear a ton, which is the look I like. Most of my friends aren't aware of my 'habit'

I just read somewhere that Black Honey is like in the all time top ten of things that EVERYONE should have. It is a great sheer color that you can keep layering darker if you want. Trish McEvoy's sheer blackberry is really similar.

i've been wearing black honey since ~8th or 9th grade. I really like the color and how much you can change it if you put a few layers on

I intended it as a compliment! It takes a lot of knowledge to have a repertoire like that. The mere fact that you appear to be wearing nothing makes it even more apparent to me that you know your stuff. My father always said, as did the few make-up artist I know, that if you can see the make-up you are wearing then you are wearing too much or wearing it incorrectly. Not that I think that is the case for everytime you wear make-up but as a general rule. Anyhoo, I think you have the right job here Ma'am! We're in good hands!

I am going to look up the Black honey. I am hoping it is like the Estee Lauder Perfect Midnight #98 that was their most popular selling shade EVER that they promptly discontinued that I have not found an adequate replacement for STILL.... UGH! Why do they do that? It makes me so stinking mad! I am still digging out the bottom of my last tube on special occasions. I feel so stupid.

my hubby probably doesn't pay too much attention, but thinks I look a little better with some on. My coloring in the morning isn't too good, but I glow in the evening, damnit!

I think it is all personal choice to some men. Some like the women 'to the nines' and some prefer au naturel.

to those who use BM: do you HAVE to get the brushes that they recommend or can you use your own? does it not work as well? i have been considering BM for a while now, just haven't actually gone out and tried the stuff.

oh and to contribute to my own thread lol, i very rarely wear makeup; just concealer whenever necessary and sometimes bronzer and/or mascara
I use bare minerals. And I use their brushes.... but only b/c they came with the starter set. I think you could definately use your own. If you want to try it.... get the starter set at Sephora... only $60 and you get sooo much! Pluse the brushes.

Bare Minerals foundation/warmth/then mineral veil

Men don't have a clue! My boy says the same, but then when I do wear make up he'll say "You're looking especially nice today, what's different?". He won't even realise its makeup - he can't tell the difference between with or without... all he knows is some days I look pretty and other days not so much.

My fiance bought me a makeup course with proper makeup artists a few years ago and its the best thing he ever got me (meanwhile, he says its the worst thing he ever bought me cause now I take so long to get ready).

I love doing 'natural' make up where it looks like you were born looking that that. I spend a lot of time on getting my skin tone and shading right.... IMO if your skin is glowing, you've 80% of the job done.

My normal make up (when I can be bothered) is:

foundation - mac studio fix (day) or studio tech (night)
* concealer - bobbi brown on blemishes and touche eclat for shadows
* powder - mac blot powder
* contouring - St tropez bronzer
* blush - Mac (margin in frost (sun kissed), orchid sheen roseland (shimmer) for a touch of pink or blushberry (sheertone) for au natural)
* eyebrows - benefit brow zings or if I'm lazy, I just fill them in with mac espresso eye shadow.
* eye primer - benefit lemon aid (great at evening out pigment)
* eye base - benefit pass the potatos or mac brulee in satin
* eyeshadow - clinque buttered bronze shadow duo or stila wheat or benefit trust fund baby
* eyeliners - white pencil on inner rim at the bottom
* mascara - dior show (after a LOT of curling)
* lipliner - mac in stone
* lip gloss - either rosebud salve or mac lipgelee in glosspitality.

If I'm doing it properly like I was taught I think the quickest I've managed is 15 minutes, but I can get the absolute basics done in 5 mins.

I nearly peed himself laughing a couple of months ago when I was packing to go on holidays. One of my fiance's mates was over and he was looking at my make up bag, and pulling things out, going "what the hell is this?" and "what in god's name do you use this for?". I forget that things we take as common knowledge aren't even in their vocabulary.
