My face gets coated in flour, sugar and cocoa powder most days at work, so I never bother wearing makeup.

I put on the same amount of makeup as I do every day: foundation, blush, and eye shadow. The exception is when I'm the weekend person scheduled to take care of in-house patients. then I show up in my pajamas and no makeup because its just me and whatever pet is on fluids. Lol

I wear make-up just about all the time. I rarely do cake-a-face, but I do concealer under my deep-set, forever dark eyes, cut crease with a reddish brown shadow, maybe a brown liner cat eye, mascara and a light lip color/tinted balm. I try to stay pretty natural and neutral, and I don't try super hard to cover any blemishes or anything.

Oh, and tons and tons of moisturizer since I have terribly dry skin.

I wear eyeliner every day. Some days I add mascara and some concealer if my face is breaking out.

I work with dogs, too, but also a lot of people. I look like I just woke up all day if I don't wear eyeliner, at least.

Yes, a little.

Some sort of foundation, powder, or tinted moisturizer to even out the skin tone. Concealer on any funky spots. I have to color in my eyebrows with a blonde pencil because they are sooooo fair otherwise that I look bald. Sometimes that's where I stop, other days I will add a little blush and mascara.

I wear makeup everyday. I voted 'just a little' because I like to look natural, but I feel grubby when I don't wear it. My daytime makeup usually just consists of foundation, some eyeliner, a bit of blush and mascara. Doesn't take long at all!

Fun fact: if I'm sick, putting on a makeup is the fastest way to make me feel semi-human again... sitting around with no makeup makes me feel worse than sitting around with makeup LOL.
That is so me LOL, especially the last part. I was just sick with the flu for a week and even though I felt like dying I still managed to put some under eye concealer on every day after I showered. Made me feel somewhat better.. and look a lot less scary (I get crazy pale when I'm sick).

But yeah, I wear make up no matter what I'm planning on doing. Takes me like.. 5-7min. to do my makeup, so it's not like I sit in front of the mirror for hours.

I set everything with Mac powder. Add neutral lip gloss and I'm done. It takes me 5-10 minutes in the morning and another 5 at night to get it all off.
It's interesting that you say that you feel you are treated differently with makeup. Part of what inspired the thread was an article I read about a study done where they found that study participants were shown pictures of the same women in various states of makeup, from bare faced to full faced, and the general concensous was that the women with more makeup were seen as more competent by the participants.
