How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

I was once told that it shouldn't take any longer than 5 minutes to do my makeup. If it takes longer than that then you are putting too much on your face. Of course that was before primers were popular. I timed myself today and it took me 8 minutes....Not too bad! How long does it take you?

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

Oh yikes. 5 minutes? I work in cosmetics so I probably wear more than most on my work days but I also really enjoy makeup and putting it on and trying new things. A full face takes me 45 min to an hour, but on most days I don't spend more than 30 minutes on my face.

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

I split things up, so for me it is normally shower, moisturizer, dry hair, then foundation, brush teeth, and then apply the rest of my make up (eye shadow, mascara, blush, concealer, lipstick). So the make up part is about 5 minutes but I spread the foundation and moisturizer parts out before hand. 

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

About  20 minutes on a daily basis and an hour on night outs/special occasions.

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

Depends on the look that I am doing. For my every day class/work look, it takes me 5 minutes tops. If I am going out or want a defined look, it can range to 15-20 minutes. 

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

It takes me about five minutes total but usually if I'm not rushing to class I like to relax and let my BB cream dry before I put setting powder on and that could be anywhere from 10-30 minutes depending on if I get distracted lol

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

Usually 30 min, but I drink my coffee and watch the latest YouTube subscriptions while I do it. Its very relaxing and I enjoy my "me" time . Then the rest of the day can start. I like a doing a full face everyday because its so much fun to play at my vanity Smiley Happy

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

I can do my makeup in about four minutes if I'm only doing foundation/finishing powder/blush/eyeliner/mascara. That takes me no time at all. BUT - if I'm doing eye makeup, it'll take me around ten minutes. 15 if I'm taking my time Smiley Happy

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

5 minutes when I am doing a simple face for work. But when I go out and want to look nice, it can take 20-30 minutes, depending on the eye look and whether or not I put on false eyelashes.

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

Roughly 5 minutes for a regular day look, and up to 20 minutes for an evening look. Most of the time is spent on the eyes. Smiley Happy

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

No less than 20 minutes for the most part. If I'm trying something new or getting ready for a special occasion it can take up to 45 minutes. None of that includes hair. 

 

It's pretty embarrassing to read that so many of you can be done in 5 minutes! I don't think I could do my makeup in 5 minutes if my life depended on it. 

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

usually it takes me 20-30mins daily. most of the prepping takes 5mins alone lol. If i am going out in the night and didn't have makeup on, it can take me 40mins. 

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

It takes me 30-45 minutes, this includes cleaning, moisturizing and priming. I have very very bad eyesight, so I take my glasses off and put them back on a lot too, I also tend to enjoy my breakfast and a bit of TV while do my face up..

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

For me it's around 10 minutes... I do it much slower than I would if I was actually awake... If you wake up at 5 AM everyday, then you would understand

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

I guess I would say about 10-15 minutes, but I don't rush in the morning. I always leave myself time in the morning to NOT have to rush so i can enjoy putting on my makeup. I do hate to rush!

 

I can easily put basic makeup on in 5 minutes - but I really do enjoy taking my time!

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

Minimum 15 minutes, but I prefer about twice that (including skin prep).  I'd rather get up early than leave without my face on.  I suppose if I had beautiful skin, I could skip out the door with lip gloss on.  In reality, middle age hormones are not my friend and I have a fair bit to cover up.

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

Wow I envy everyone who can get there makeup in in thirty minues. It takes me an hour or an hour and a half if I'm experimenting with eyeshadow

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

I CAN do a 5 minute face and look good but my makeup takes as long to put on as the time I have Smiley Happy I like long makeup sessions before going out. It's often a relaxing and luxe ritual. 

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

Minimum 20, ideally 45.  I work in the industry where they require make up, hair and nails to be in pristine condition, so I need lots of time to get it appropriate.

 

 

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

If I'm doing full makeup it usually takes me 20-30 minutes or maybe a little more because I like to take my time. I can't imagine doing it in five minutes or less, especially with eye makeup. 

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

I give myself an hour. Makeup is one of the things I don't like rushing through. If I don't have enough time to do it, them I won't wear any for the day. Fortunately wearing makeup has not me afraid of my own face, lol.

Re: How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

You all make me want to really time myself!  On a normal day, I usually dont spend more than 15 mins on my face: bb cream, setting powder, brows, blush, mascara, eyeliner & lipgloss.  If I actually have somewhere to go, I'll take half an hr to 45 mins for the whole shabang Smiley Happy  Hair would add an extra 30ish mins!!
