Highlighter
Blush
Mascara
Lip balm or stain

Heavy makeup nights -

Tinted moisturiser
Highlighter
Blush
Eyebrow shadow
Eyeliner
Mascara
Lip balm
Lipstick

Then remove with the cold cream and start again the next morning :)

Oh, I'll add that my moisturiser has SPF in it but if I'm going out in the sun at all ( I'm an Aussie) I'll wear a full protection sunscreen and I won't wear makeup as I find it too heavy to have both.

I hear that skin cancer rates are sky high in Australia with Aborigines being the exception. The sun is a killer and life giver at the same time!

True. On the other hand, rates of vitamin D deficiency are soaring amongst Australian women! 1 in 3 now, I believe. We took the "slip slop slap" message a bit too much to heart, but it is difficult not to when everyone you know over the age of 40 has had skin cancers removed.

For number of products, if I am just around the house or walking up to the post office it'll just be a light day cream. If I am going out-out (not just to the shops!) it'll be:
Day cream
Under eye concealer
Foundation
Colour-corrective concealer
Eye primer
Cream eyeshadow
powder eyeshadows
gel liner
eyebrow pencil
mascara
lipstain
lipstick
lipliner
translucent powder
... and sometimes blush depending on whether I feel pallid.

Skin care wise I use one of a few different cleansers or scrubs depending on how my skin feels; foreo luna to wash with; then after, a skin oil if needed; eye cream and then moisturiser (different ones for day and night). Make up is a bit different. On and day to day basis it's foundation, powder, eye primer, eye shadow, eye liner and mascara, then lip balm and lipstick. Sometimes I use blusher, but find it difficult to get a good vintage red one. They all seem too peach, dusky rose or tawny. I have a perfect Dior one that is really red, but want to buy a cruelty free one instead. If i'm going out at night I tend to amp up the eye shadow so it's not just a nude/neutral one but has some shimmer or is more pigmented as well as the eyeliner etc.

Oh and hair products are shampoo (loads of different ones depending on whether my hair needs a gentle wash or days worth of hairspray removal!), conditioner, treatment a couple of times a week as my hair is bleached platinum and that and the hairspray really dries it out, gel/mousse/setting lotion and hairspray to finish.

This looks like my daily checklist from my late college days;) Maybe except setting lotion and occasional nail polish. The thing I use very often, I mean every day, is a flat iron. I have fine curly hair but I prefer it straight. The most effective approach to keep it straight for longer is to do as Chloe says which means using dry shampoo to prevent the excessive moisture on your scalp.
