How long do you spend putting on makeup? - August 3rd 2010, 12:49 AM

How much time do you spend putting on makeup in the morning?
I'm proud to say zero. =)

I don't wear makeup.

But if do, which is rarely, it takes forever cause I haven't had much practice.

When I put makeup on it usually takes about 5 or 6 minutes. I don't like a lot of it.

I like to put aside 10-20 minutes because I get sidetracked xD
If I'm in a rush 7-10 minutes.

I've started wearing less makeup, but when I would wear the bright makeup, it took about 5-10 minutes. If I was to go to a fancy party or something, it would take much longer.

Re: How long do you spend putting on makeup? - August 3rd 2010, 03:19 AM

it varies a LOT. depends where i'm going and what i'm doing.
for every day make up about 5-10 minutes. but if i'm going somewhere nice/it's a special occasion it can be anywhere up to an hour cos i like to take my time. i'm very particular with my make-up and i have been known to put it all on not like it, take it all off with a make-up wipe and start over.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

depends on how im doing my makeup. typically it takes 5-10 minutes. if i decide to try somthing new or add something bright or somthing, it may take a few more minutes. then theres days im lazy and dont do half of it so it only takes a couple minutes. just depends.

Just a couple seconds, I usually only use foundation or cover up. When I put other stuff on I still put barely anything on so 5 minutes max.

30 seconds to a minute. I put on a touch of eyeshadow, mascara, and just a little eyeliner. I can do it without a mirror, too

It really depends. Since my skin has improved, I hardly ever wear make up, or if I do, I'll only put a bit of eyeliner on which only takes a minute. I used to spend about 15 minutes putting full make-up on when I wore it frequently. If I'm going somewhere special, it usually takes about half an hour.

On a regular day I don't wear any.
If I am going out somewhere then I only wear Blush, eye shadow, mascara and lipgloss so it only takes like 10 mins unless I mess up my eye shadow and have to start again with that.

Depends what look I'm going for. Just a bit of make-up takes me about 5 minutes. If I try and make it look more interesting then about 15 minutes.

Hmm, depends what make up I'm wearing since my liquid eyeliner can take ages if it starts to go wrong.

On a good day I'd say 5 minutes max.

Re: How long do you spend putting on makeup? - August 4th 2010, 03:52 AM

I very rarely wear makeup If I do, it's just a little eye stuff because my mom is always making fun of how little eyelashes I have. lol so less than 3 minutes pretty much.
Though my mom has done it for me on special occasions. Like for my senior picture, it took her a full 15 minutes to do my make up, which ended up looking a shade of orange, and a good 20 on my hair, which didn't do a think because of my thin, nothing of hair. I honestly think I looked worse with her makeup, a lot worse. Shows her


But, if we're talking ZOMBIE makeup, then quite awhile because some of the latex has to set But I've managed to shorten that to 15 minutes depending on the extent of the makeup needed. Lol



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

I probably spend about 5-10 minutes doing my makeup because I'm really slow in the morning (not a morning person at all so I'm usually half asleep ). I usually wear some foundation and mascara so doesn't take too long!

I don't wear make-up unless I'm going out with friends. I really don't care when I'm by myself and go wherever looking a tad bleh!
It takes between 5 and 10 mins.

On most days, zero I might wear some for a special occasion though, for that it will depend on the occasion or what I feel like that day.

Depending on what I'm getting ready for, anywhere from like 2-30 minutes. School days I'll usually be under 5 minutes, since I'm pretty low-maintenance. Sometimes if I'm feeling glamorous that morning I'll be more like 10. If I'm going to some sort of event, more like 30 minutes.

I don't wear makeup on a daily basis.

I do for shows and on set - because I'm makeup illiterate I take 30 minutes -_-


You can lose yourself. Everything. All boundaries. All time.

And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die... you kind of do.

Leaving you alone in your separate body, but the one you love is still there.

That's a miracle.

You can go to heaven and come back alive. You can go back anytime you want with the one you love.

Depends on where I'm going. If I'm just going out shopping or to an appointment, I'll spend about 5 minutes.
If I'm going out-out, like to a club or the movies, or somewhere in the nightlife, I'll spend about a half hour - 45 minutes putting on my makeup and straightening my hair.

on a normal day anywhere between 0 and 10 mins
from nothing to mascara + small amount of eyeliner + bronzer + lipgloss and everything in between

for nights out or special occasions it can be quite a long time lol.
