I love makeup and have been using it since I was about 14 or 15.  I just feel better if I have a litlle something on.  I too am retired.  I wear makeup almost every single day.  How much depends on where my day takes me.  I always wear a bit foundation, a bit of eyeshadow and liner, lipstick (I do not use lip gloss) and blush.  If I am going to be out and about punch it up a bit.  I am light complected and have dark circles and blotchy uneven skin tone.  Without makeup, I look like a ghost plus I scare animals and small children.

Re: How many days a week do you wear full face makeup?

I'm not sure what a full face of make up is.  I wear BB cream mascara eyeliner every day. I don't work but usually go somewhere every day. But even if I don't I wear makeup. I love makeup,though I do wear less as I age.  Not fond of the Baby Jane look. Lol.

I don't put make-up on unless I plan to go somewhere which I usually just do once or twice a week.  All I normally see are dogs and they don't care.

Since I'm homebound (no vehicle & live solo) and work from home, I don't put anything on my face except lip balm.

 

And my eyeglasses.  ;-)

 

But when I can get to an errand or appointment, I usually only add:

mascara, brow thing, blush, lip color.

 

Although I've been in public many times with an entirely bare face, it didn't startle anyone, LOL.

No biggie.

 

Yep; it is better to let your skin 'breathe' as much as possible.

And that goes for everywhere, as it's our body's largest organ.

@feline groovy  It's a common misconception, but skin does not breathe.

Re: How many days a week do you wear full face makeup?

I've always worn a full face of make-up 5-6 days a week. About 6 months ago my employer started allowing full-time work from home so now I hardly ever wear it. Honestly, being a make-up junkie I really miss it and look forward to the occasion (1-2x/month) that I have to go into the office. I love those extra 3 hours a day not having to commute into town but I always feel so frumpy and homely looking now. 😢
