Musings About Make-Up

I have been pondering (god knows why) about make-up.  It struck me that the majority of women in my wider circle, such as colleagues/relatives/ etc wear make-up on a daily or almost-daily basis.  Most of my immediate circle of friends, however, don't. Or don't appear to.
I don't wear it often... I have a lot, and in many mad colours, but it gets used for nights out, or occasions, or days when i miss a bus and have an extra twenty minutes to fill before I leave the house.
I've never worn it regularly... and whilst I may have feminist rants occasionally it's not something I'm political about, it's just that it feels too much of an effort to do everyday, especially since its not routine.

Part of this is I know, tied up in the fact that I'm in a stage where I think 'yuk' every time i look in the mirror: I'm run-down tired and stressed and it shows, but this just makes me want to makeup even less, because then I feel like I look like a run-down tired and stressed clown instead.  (hmmm just realised that my last post here was a whinge about having winter skin.... it clearly wasn't winter skin, just unhealthy skin, and it hasn't changed much )

I don't  want to be like the scary orange and brown Clinique ladies, but i'd like to look, well, a bit tidier, a bit less pale blotchy and dark-circly 
Without it taking much effort.
Or time.

I need a magic potion don't I?

Anyway, back to my point (yes, there is one honest)
Do you wear makeup daily/often?
If you're one of the none-make up people, do you have big reasons, or are you like me, and never got into the habit and it feels like a chore if its an everyday thing?

Any recommendations for me?
