What I DO and DON'T According to the "Makeup Rules"

I personally think there are no REAL "Makeup Rules", but there are general guidlines that the makeup community puts out there for people to follow for a flawless face, to make your makeup last, or just standards that most people follow. Well, some things I do and somethings I don't do..LOL..

Here is what I DON'T do:

I DON'T use primer on my face everyday. Once in a while I will
I DON'T set my makeup with powder
I DON'T contour my face everyday
I DON'T exfolate my lips
I DON'T use makeup remover to take off my makeup, I just wash my face and I use olive oil to remove my eye makeup
I DON'T put black eyeliner on my waterline, I think it looks to harsh on me.
I DON'T fill in my eyebrows, idk why I don't..
I DON'T use lipliner, I honestly just forget this step, I want to get into the habit of doing it though.
I DON"T always like black eyeliner on my upper lash line either, I really like different color liners.
I DON'T set my makeup with Fix + or any other spray

Here are some of my DO's

I DO moisterize my face everday and night and apply my prescription acne medication
I DO highlight my cheek bones everyday
I DO wear blush everyday
I DO wear foundation EVERYDAY
I DO wash my face, once in the morning with no soap and once at night with soap
I DO use eye primer everyday, it is either UDPP in Eden or Greed

What do you think? What are your Do's and Don't of the makeup world?

Lately, I've been so impressed with my skin that I DON'T wear makeup every day :D. I do have to use a day and night cream, though, since I have weird dry patches in odd places.

I don't use eyeliner or lipliner or fill in my brows, never found a need for it really.

I don't follow any make-up rules really, but I do always moisturize twice a day, and I don't wear lipliner. Ever!

We have similar approaches with the following exceptions: I will use soap or cream or sometimes both (when I'm made up I want to remove all traces prior to night cream application) and in the morning it depends on how my skin feels; I could never get away with not doing my brows if I've done the rest of my eyes; I don't wear foundation or sometimes makeup at all some days but I never go without some kind of cleansing/moisturizing routine (as I'm sure you don't either!)
