Takes me 20 to 30 minutes depending on what I’m doing on my eye. I can do my makeup in under 10 minutes, but my average time is 20 – 30 minutes.

well, i am an unemployed quasi shut-in, so i have all damn day to put on my makeup. on days where I actually have to be up doing things, I don’t bother with it, unless i feel like i need to really make myself extra pretty. i like being able to mess around with my makeup for like 45 minutes before i consider myself done, and i hate to rush that.

Thirty to forty minutes – but closer to thirty, including cleansing my face and putting on moisturizer. I do wish I could speed it up, shave off five or ten minutes.

Depending on time of the day, product familiarity, and whether I have a specific look planned or not, it could take me anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour. Half an hour is my average, I think.

My daily work face makeup routine takes me about 20 minutes, sometimes 15 if I know I’m going to be late. If I’m getting ready to go out, it takes about 30 minutes for a full face of makeup.

If I’m in work I usually take about 10/15 mins, normally because I’ve overslept coz I’m not a morning person at all. I’ve I’m going somewhere special I like to have 30-45 mins so I can make sure I look nice. I don’t like rushing if it’s for a special occasion

Every day is a 3-Minute Makeup Challenge day for me when I need to get to work. I mostly just buff on a bit of mineral foundation, even out the discolouration on my eyes, apply some blush, and do my brows….tinted lip balm/lip stain can be done on the go!

I normally have around 20 minutes for my make up when I’m working, but my office make up is pretty simple! I sometimes wish I had more time and could get out the door earlier, but the only person to blame is me, I just need to get up 10 minutes earlier!

I also need about 20-30 minutes. Closer to 30. I often try to make it shorter but no success… 🙁 So i often run late and make my husband mad and he makes me mad in return hurrying me… 🙂

Oh my gosh, how does everyone get ready SO fast~!? It, honestly, takes me about 30 minutes to an hour to do my makeup on a daily basis. What the heck??? You guys are champs~!! =D I’ve tried to cut back on the time I take by skipping a few steps and it still takes me WAY longer than 15 minutes. What are your secrets? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. ♥

It takes me 2-10 minutes to go to work.
For other occasions, like 10-20 minutes.

I guess my looks are quite simple and natural.

It amazes me how people can be so zippy.
20min = quick look (supermarket, errands)
45min = normal day (work, shopping, or lunch date)
60-75min = special occasion, going out

Me too! I need to be relaxed when doing it or else I just mess it up and get so tensed. Where’s the fun when you’re rushing?

Anywhere from 20 min to over an hour, depending on what I’m doing. (Work looks generally take 30-40 min, and more than that if I am Going To A Thing, but that’s very rare nowadays.)

During the week it takes me around 20-25 minutes and I usually choose what l`m gonna wear the night before but on weekends I take my time so it takes 30-40 minutes I lookk around to see what I wanna try especially bold colors.
