Does anyone cut back on makeup or not wear any to save money?

Is it worth it? I work in an office and feel like I should wear makeup yet when I do purchase makeup (from the drugstore and usually pretty cheap) i feel like I am wasting money

I do. At home, I only wear mascara and moisturizer. When I go shopping I add a powder. If I worked I would wear moistuzer, powder, blush and mascara with a tinted lip balm. I do not wear eyeliner or eyeshadow.

It really depends on your face I guess. I worked with some people who arrived to work days late with no makeup on and we didn't even recognize them! It was almost scary. :laugh: I have always been a true believer that less is more. :)

You also have to factor in the shelf life of the makeup. You won't be saving any money if you have to throw out 1/2 used containers because they are past their due.
