Thank you!! I honestly don't like wearing blush/bronzer or foundation--I stick to concealer only whenever possible, because I hate the feeling (both physical and psychological) that I'm wearing a mask. I wear mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow (usually powder), lip gloss, concealer and (every once in a looong while) nail polish.
