    3.Anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes

  2. Catherine

    1. Shaving. I love having smooth legs, but I HATE shaving!
    2. Moisturizing. It’s like giving myself a massage =)
    3. During the week – 15-20 minutes. On the weekends it can be 1-2 hours.

  3. Nicole15

    Least favorite part of your beauty routine?:
    Definitely has to be concealing problem areas. I hate it so much cause the whole time I’m covering a pimple or dark spot, I am wishing I had better skin. :(

    Favorite part of your beauty routine?:
    I love, love, love doing my eyes. This is where I can have fun & play!

    How long does your beauty routine take?:
    I guess an hour & that’s with interruptions because there is something that always takes me away & I have to go back. If I’m having a good skin day, then less time for sure.

  4. 1. Make up – foundation. Other routines – shaving and STRAIGHTENING MY HAIR.
    2. Make up = moisturizing. Otherwise = washing my hair is sooo relaxing.
    3. Showers = 30-45 minutes when getting ready to go somewehre. Then 2 hours to straighten my hair, and another hour for make up, so maybe three hours? LOL thats when I’m rushinggg

    Least favorite part of your beauty routine?: Shaving and putting foundation on

    Favorite part of your beauty routine?: Bronzer & lipgloss because it makes me look SO much better

    How long does your beauty routine take?: With shower it takes about 1hr 45…my makeup routine takes about a half hour.

  6. Least favorite part of your beauty routine?: My least favorite part of my makeup routine is curling my lashes/applying mascara because I’m just so darn bad at it, lol… ITA shaving really, really, really sucks too. I try to do it as little as possible.

    Favorite part of your beauty routine?: I don’t know that I have a favorite part of doing my routine. I guess my eyes, because that’s what I vary the most.

    How long does your beauty routine take?: 15 minutes without interruptions and if everything goes smoothly.

  7. Least favorite:
    I hate blowdrying my freaking hair. It takes forever and I wish my hair just fell naturally volumized and untangled after a shower.

    Favorite:
    Applying blush or bronzer, then sweeping on my setting powder. Big fluffy fan brushes and powder brushes feel so nice on my skin! It’s either this, or applying my lipstick + gloss. It’s always fun to focus on how accurately gorgeous I can make my mouth look. Hahaha!

    How long?:
    At the shortest, it can be around 45 minutes. But I do a lot of stuff (shower, lotion, perfume, hair shit, makeup, moisturizing, etc) — so typically, I get around 2hrs of “get-ready” time.

  8. Todd

    Least favorite part of your beauty routine?: My least favorite would have to be doing eyeshadow. I have so many, and I can pretty much do what I want so it’s like, I always have to stretch to get something new, and then I just get annoyed because it’s super similar to a look I’ve worn before.
    Favorite part of your beauty routine?: Probably foundation. I like foundation. I feel like it’s the part of my routine that I enjoy because glowing skin is a goal that everyone should aspire to. Any other makeup should really be secondary.
    How long does your beauty routine take?: 30-45 minutes, depending. Some days it’s shorter when I feel like wearing lip balm and skipping eye makeup.

  9. Miss_M

    Washing hair, brushing teeth, plucking eyebrows

    Favorite part of your beauty routine?: Finishing it
    How long does your beauty routine take?: About 5-10 minutes.

  11. Least favorite part of your beauty routine?: Having to ceck the status of my skin. It’s alwys breaking out horribly so there’s never any good news there. Never much iked washing makeup off either. Takes so much time where you can’t breathe unless you want it all in your nose or mouth >_<
    Favorite part of your beauty routine?: Oh, I love doing facemasques! Love it, love it, love it! Love to peel also, and transforming with makeup.
    How long does your beauty routine take?: All the time I can get! I like to take it slow with this, so the more time I got, the happier I am. But usually 30min to get ready in the morning, 10 in the evening. 30min in the evening if I do a face masque.

  12. hi

    Least favorite part of your beauty routine?

    In my makeup routine, I HATE penciling my eyebrows! It’s so hard to get a natural brow with a pencil, but anything else isn’t pigmented enough. In other routines, it’s a toss-up between rinsing loads of conditioner out of my thick, long, wild curls and shaving my legs. I always miss a hair or two, and standing back up after bending over to shave my lower legs makes me dizzy/nauseous.

    Favorite part of your beauty routine?

    Can’t decide between mascara and eyeshadow… With eyeshadow, it’s like painting abstract art on my eyelids. Perfecting my lashes, though, that just kicks my whole look up about 10 notches!

    How long does your beauty routine take?

    Showering, taking care of my skin and teeth, and prepping my hair takes about a half hour. My makeup takes 30-45 minutes, so overall its about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes.

  13. Kathleen

    Least favorite part of your beauty routine?:
    I really don’t have one. I quite enjoy my beauty routine

    Putting on makeup in the morning, especially eyeshadows.

    How long does your beauty routine take?:
    Makeup takes about 40 minutes, but other things such as showering, skin care, and hair, all takes up to about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

  14. Least favorite part of your beauty routine?: Cover up/foundation. I hate dealing with my dry skin and blemishes.
    Favorite part of your beauty routine?: Any sort of highlighter – either on my cheeks, lips, browbones, or collar bone. I love how quickly I can achieve a glow (that disguises the aforementioned dead skin and blemishes).
    How long does your beauty routine take?: anywhere from 5 to 60 minutes, depending on how OCD I’m being about cover-up and how dramatic I’m going with my eyes.

  16. Jessica

    Least favorite part of your beauty routine?: blow drying my hair! 10 min process ugh! I also hate plucking eye brows cuz it hurts. I also hate eyeliner because I’m a perfectionist and hate when I screw up.

  18. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of T Violet tremorviolet

    Least favorite part of your beauty routine?: I’d have to say eye liner. I love the way it looks but it’s kinda stressful making both eyes even.

    Favorite part of your beauty routine?: eye shadow, I love trying different combinations. Second would be picking out the perfect lippie to go with the eye shadow.

    How long does your beauty routine take?: It takes me about an hour and a half to get ready in the morning. That’s 10 minutes playing with the cats, 20-25 min shower, 10 min drying hair, 10 min ironing that days outfit, 20-25 min for make-up, 5-10 minutes for getting dressed and picking out shoes.

  19. CeeBee

    Least favorite part of your beauty routine?: Overall, it would be doing my hair. I’m incredibly lazy, usually just wash and go but fiddling around with product and hair ties is not very fulfilling for me. I think I’ve blow dried my hair once in the last 6 months…

    Favorite part of your beauty routine?: Putting on lipstick! It’s the last thing I do when completing my look and I love how it finishes the look of and looks really polished and well balanced. It’s also the only touch up I usually make during the day.

    How long does your beauty routine take?: Showering, even if I’m hair washing etc I am usually done in 10 minutes. Makeup takes about 30 minutes for a full face but I can rush it if I need to. Maybe 45 minutes if it’s a special occasion and I want it to be *perfect*!

  20. Lia

    Least favorite part of your beauty routine?:
    Taking care of my teeth, always take me 5 minutes – but at least I have good teeth.

    Favorite part of your beauty routine?:
    Having time to do more complex makeup, normally I don’t have time, so when I do have time I like to go all out and make sure everything is perfect.

    How long does your beauty routine take?:
    Workdays – 5 minutes or less. (only because it is normally like 5 in the morning!)
    Weekends – 15 minutes
    Going out/special events – 20 minutes and up. Depends on if I have to any with my hair.

  21. Natalie

    Least favorite part of your beauty routing?
    Probably shaving, and washing my hair (so many knots!), as well as eyeliner…especially liquid. I have yet to perfect my technique :[

    Favorite part of your beauty routine?
    Mascara, because I love dramatic lashes, and foundation, because I like buffing my skin into perfection

    Weekday makeup is about 5-10 minutes, going out makeup around 30. If I’m washing my hair add 3 hours to that though, because I airdry and it takes forever :[
