What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I'm afraid to get makeup on my dressy/work clothes so I wear something else.

 

I used to wear longer sleep t-shirts but they seemed a bit confining and I found myself getting warm in them in the summer and in hotter climates. (And to sweat while putting on makeup or doing one's hair is the worst thing!)

 

Then I saw this neat Betsey Johnson slip nightie on sale at JCP last year and the light bulb went on above my head and I realized it would be perfect for wearing while putting on makeup. This nightie has little candy hearts drawn on it with mushy sayings (like the real Valentine's day candy), neat ribbon like adjustable straps and some ruffles on the bottom hem. Totally cute, loose, and never too warm.

 

I then returned to JCP and got a second slip nightie (also on sale) that has a gray and pink leopard spot print, also with ruffles on the bottom hem and pretty ribbon/lace adjustable straps.

 

Every time I wear one of these slip nighties, my husband always compliments me on how cute I am. It sure makes me feel cuter as I apply my makeup and style my hair. Smiley Wink

 

After I'm done applying makeup and blow-drying my hair, I change into my dressy clothes or my work clothes.

 

What clothing do you wear while you apply your makeup? What you're wearing that day/night, or something else?

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

Very cute!  Most of the time, I'm not worried about getting a little makeup on my clothes, especially if I'm in a rush.  But for special occasions or if I'm getting more dressed up than usual, like you, I like to change after I'm ready.  I have a short, lightweight cotton-blend robe that I picked up for my sister & I, to wear while getting ready for her wedding.  It was perfect because it ties in the front, so it wont go over our heads & mess up the hair or makeup.  And it does make me feel pretty fancy when I'm getting ready at my vanity Smiley Happy  A cutesy silk robe would be awesome though!!

That would be so Hollywood glam! 

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I normally get dressed after makeup, but not always. mostly pjs. 

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

Dressing is the final thing I do. My morning routine usually consists of shower, skincare, dry hair, makeup, style hair, dress. I don't like to get makeup or hair on my clothes.

 

If I'm not partially dressed, I wear a robe.

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I usually wear pajamas or yoga pants and some sort of tank top. Getting dressed is always the last thing I do, even if I'm not getting dressed up that day. I'm one of those people who always likes to be in comfy clothing when I am at home though. It is how I have always been!

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

That totally makes sense!  I'm so weird though, I dont like my pjs getting dirty Smiley Sad  And ohh my, if I got makeup on my lululemon pants & ruined them, I think I'd cry!!

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I wouldn't wear any of my lululemon pants or lucy pants getting ready because I would be sad if something happened to them too! I usually just wear less awesome, inexpensive yoga pants from TJ Maxx Smiley Wink.

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

LOL, we're totally on the same page Smiley Wink

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

That's funny cause I treat my lululemons as disposable. I must have 40+ pairs of their run shorts and even more of their tanks.  New gym clothes keep me motivated to stay in shape. 

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

@heartsmyface - Super jealous!  My Lulu collections is no where near yours!  I have 4 or 5 Wunderunders, a couple of tops, 2 vinyasa scarves & a few sports bras I LOVE, but even with my sisters teacher discount, its still pricey Smiley Sad  I have a couple Fabletics sets I thought I'd try out to see if they were decently comparable... those I'll wear to do my makeup in Smiley Wink  

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

Technically, the shorts are cheaper than the wunderunders and not as much of an investment as pants. You've got me beat with those cause I only have three pairs. I'm not a big fan of their bras really I prefer nike compression bras, but I do love having the colour selection.  I basically wear shorts all year round except for skiing and that's when I pull out the wunders.  Oh your sister is a yoga teacher? 

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I had this same "ah hah" moment, I bought a black robe from VS and use it. I agree it always makes me feel cuter while getting dressed.

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I feel like I'm missing something...how does makeup get on clothes? I don't think I've had that happen. 

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I tend to be a little bit sloppy. I've gotten foundation on my clothes, as well as mascara and eyeliner.

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

Powder fallout, rubbing foundation, etc.

 

I try to limit my dry cleaning bills...

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I have over vigorously pumped foundation onto myself before. Lol!  It really does happen! 

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I always always get fallout powder, blush, bonzer, prob not enough for it to be a big deal unless I was wearing all black or all white. 

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I usually get up, shower and begin to put on my make up. I always wear pj bottoms or yoga pants with a tank top while getting ready. Whether it is a work day or weekend getting dressed is the last thing I do.

Comfort is a biggie for me... Smiley Wink

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I guess I am the opposite. I get dressed first. I don't like pulling shirts over my head and messing my hair up after I have fixed it. I also dont like getting makeup on the neck of my shirt from pulling that over my face.

Re: What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?

I usually get up and wash my face...with my pjs on, and put on whatever else my face needs. after that I stay in my pjs, cause I tend to make a mess. Wither it's the sink or my shirt. After that I get dressed knowing I won't get messy.
