    I apply make-up about half an hour after waking up–I need a cup of coffee first! It takes me about thirty minutes to do my make-up. After washing and prepping my face, I apply foundation, blush, and a light dusting of translucent powder. Next come the eyes: eyebrow powder, eye shadow, liner, then mascara. The lips are the last thing. Most days I’m a lipgloss kind of girl, but when I need to look more groomed, I use a lipliner and lipstick with a dab of gloss.

  16. Katie

    This has actually always been a problem for me, maybe someone can give pointers!

    If I know I’m going out at night, I’ll hold off on applying until right before I leave (which puts me in the office all day, no makeup) because it never looks as fresh, and also I find that foundation etc settles in a little differently if I put it on at 8am. Any good ideas on touch ups?

    Other than that I spend 20-30 minutes, eyes first, foundation, blush, brows, and lips right as I’m headed out the door!

  17. Makeup gets applied just after I moisturize (and sometimes prime) my face, because I feel like concealer just doesn’t go on right if I let too much time pass. It definitely “melts” into my skin better when I’m freshly out of the shower.

    If I’m not sure what the day’s activities will entail, sometimes I’ll just do the face “correcting” moves and leave color for later.

    The basic face: 5-7 minutes
    + an eye “look”: 10-15 minutes
    + foundation, lashes, contour, etc: 20-25 minutes (this is only for a formal event)

    The order:
    Primer
    Lip Balm
    Foundation
    Concealer
    Powder
    Blush
    Fix +
    Brows
    Eyeliner
    Eyeshadow
    Mascara
    Lips

    When I was in high school (I am in an in-between stage of being out of high school and not yet being in college, and being jobless!), I would apply it around 6:30-7am. So, usually quite early in the morning, as that is usually when I have to leave!

    How long do you spend (on average)?
    I’d have to say… Probably an hour. Some days I spend almost 2 hours on my eyes alone, and other days I can get a look down in 30 minutes. I’m very detail oriented and a slight perfectionist with my makeup. Plus, I do both eyes at once as opposed to completing one eye and moving on to the other.

    What order do you apply your makeup in?
    Right now, I do it as such: Moisturizer+sunscreen, sheer setting powder, eye primer, cream shadow, eyeshadow, liner on upper lash line (not in all looks), highlighter, brow product, liner on lower lash line, mascara (usually bottom and top lashes). Then gloss and stuff.
    Will be incorporating my new eyecream and eventually concealer in there, after the sunscreen!

    what time: when i get ready to leave (the time varies) after i’m showered and dressed
    how long: about 10-15 mins
    what order: foundation primer –> concealer —> powder foundation —> eyeshadow —> mascara —> brow gel
    if my skin is in good condition at the time, then i’ll just throw on tinted moisturizer as opposed to foundation primer and concealer.

  67. What time do you usually apply your makeup?

    In the morning if I’m going to uni/work, but in the afternoon if I’m going out at night :)

    How long do you spend (on average)?

    Depends on how complex the look is. If it’s just a basic or neutral look I’ll give myself an hour to get my entire face on, though it often doesnt take nearly that long. If it’s a complex look that I’ve never tried before I’ll give myself like 2 hours so I can mess up and stuff have time to fix things or start over XD

    What order do you apply your makeup in?

    Eyes, under eye concealer, face concealer, foundation, blush, lips.

    I apply my makeup in the morning before I leave for work.
    I always do my make up and hair as the last thing before leaving. Doesn’t matter the time. If I don’t go out until 3pm, then I’m doing my hair and makeup just before that.

    On average it takes me 20 minutes. Most of the time is spent on my eyes.

    My order:
    -Lotion/skin care, concealer, foundation
    -Eye shadow, liner, eye lash primer,
    -Blush/bronzer
    -Mascara
    -Lips (if I do anything to them)

  86. 1- lightly in the morning, because i’m still half asleep then after my afternoon shower around 1pm ill do full makeup
    2- depends, in the morning, 10 minutes tops but if im getting ready to go do something important that i need to look good about 25-30 minutes if i super take my time.
    3-moisturizer (do something with my hair while that’s soaking in) then eye primer, foundation, msf’s, eye base, shadows, liner, blush, bronzer, powder, mascara. (brush teeth again lol) lipstick, lip gloss, perfume. :)
