Yes, I wear foundation all the time. I never use to like the made up look, but now I think it is definitely worth it. I have acne scarring and bags too at the moment though they are improving vastly I still feel more confident wearing makeup.

I do the whole deal- in all natural colors. I work with customers and I find that people respond better when you take care of your personal presentation-even though I never judge a book by its cover I know a LOT of people do. If I had perfect skin or close to it I would probably only wear a little bit of eyeliner and eyeshadow and mascara daily.

Because I have worn make up everyday for the last 5 years I can perfect a full face of going out makeup in 15mins-including eyeliner, liquid liner, eyeshadows, mascara, blush or bronzer, moisturizer, coverstick, liquid foundation, powder foundation.

Considering the amount of makeup I use people have no clue how much I actually wear- a lot of people think I just wear a bit of loose powder and eyeiner. When I drop into work without makeup everyone is shocked-and I often get asked if I feel sick - because I look like s***! At first this was hurtful but now I am glad that I can spend 15mins a day just to walk around with a huge confidence boost- and feel good with myself.

I'm not embarrassed by my acne, I only get embarrassed if I have have one looks like it's going to pop! I really wouldn't wear any make up if I had healthy looking skin. I agree with you though Lisa, I would rather just bare all then wear more make up on my already pop like zits. I feel like I would just spread the bacteria.

I wear a little foundation during summer but more in winter to give my very pale skin a bit more colour. I have acne scarring from 40 years ago and it is still visible and I find that a little foundation minimizes it.

Everytime I wear makeup it is the first thing I put on. Only with makeup and I only use four other things after (eyebrow pen + eye shadow + mascara + lipstick). I was told a few times that I should use a concealer for under my eyes (its very dark and has been like that since i was young) but that's sounds stupid to me, I don't want to go through that pain just because I have dark circles under my eyes. I would never put on makeup without foundation and I would never put on foundation without makeup.

I went for a long, long time without wearing makeup at all. Recently with a requirement to look professional for paid Zoom classes I began using foundation again. I only use it for the Zoom class and then wash it off. It does provide a more even tone to my skin. I wish our society wasn't still in a situation where we judged people by their even skin tone.

I hardly ever use foundation but sometimes when I do I mix it with my moisturizer. I probably shouldn't do that. It probably reduces the benefits of the moisturizer. Once on a cruise I took in a class and mineral powder worked super well.

Whenever I wear a foundation, I use Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup
