  1. So, my friends think it's weird that I spend about 20 minutes doing my makeup. They think that's too long. I never thought that was really out of the ordinary, so I'm wondering- how long do you ladies spend on your makeup everyday? Obviously I'm not talking the days when you're running late, slap on some mascara and run out the door- just in general.
     
  2. Hmm, I'd say 5-10 minutes usually, but if I'm relaxing/taking my time and going for a more glam look, it could be anywhere from 15-30 minutes! :smile: Some of my good friends are very low maintenance and think the fact that I apply makeup everyday is, in and of itself, pretty nuts. :P
     
  3. mostly 5-10min, before I go out at night it can be up to 30min
     
  4. Probably 15 minutes, including the time it takes to let my primer dry before putting on Bare Minerals foundation :smile:
     
  5. I spend about 15-20 minutes doing my makeup each day. But I really enjoy the whole experience of putting on makeup...so I probably take longer than I should. I do it faster if I'm in a hurry.
     
  6. About 10 minutes if I'm doing a general every day look, but if I'm doing a more full on look probably about 20 minutes.
     
  7. A few months ago 5 minutes but since I started reading this section of the forum, it now takes me 10 minutes! From the rant and raves section, I read about better eyeliners like the Urban Decay 24/7 and the Too Faced shadow insurance. I also started using Bare Escentuals this past summer. Now I'm on the hunt for a good mascara!
     
  8. For the everyday/work look, it takes me about 20 min. If I'm going out it can take up to an hour, depending on the look I'm going for.
     
  9. I don't know how you all get your look done in 5 to 10 minutes. The fastest I have done is 15 minutes. Usually it's 25 to 30 minutes, and sometimes even as long as about 40 to 45 minutes.

    5-7 minutes

    I don't usually wear that much on a regular basis. Concealer, eyeliner, mascara, blush and that's it. My mascara takes the longest b/c I do lots of coats. Lol
     
  11. Going out? 20 minutes more or less depending on what look I'm going for
    Daily? less than 10 minutes
     
  12. 10-15 minutes. I'm a perfectionist and want it to look right even though I don't wear a lot!
     
  13. 5-8 minutes on average
     
  14. 5-10 minutes for everyday looks; 15 minutes or so for something more elaborate.
     
  15. I usually take around 15 or 20 minutes.
