    I should reapply more often, because after my morning 3 cups of red tea, my lipstick is pretty much gone… but I only reapply after lunch.

  12. amy

    How often do you reapply lipgloss/lipstick during the day? in between 2-3 times a day

    When do you apply/remove your makeup during the day? It varies. I usually put in on in the morning if I am going out for the day. I like to remove my makeup immediately when I get home, so it could be in the afternoon or late at night or the wee hours in the morning. If I am going out at night, then I would apply either before or after dinner and I would end up taking off my makeup very late in the evening or the next morning because once in a blue moon I do sleep in my makeup.

  13. AlyxVeee

    How often to you reapply lipgloss/lipstick durring the day? Generally I keep my lips nude/pink which is my natural lip color so usually after I eat or after a few hours and its just come off by me talking.

    Do you touch-up your makeup during the day? No, not generally, I will blot but since I mostly use mineral makeup I don’t carry it with me.

    When do you apply/remove your makeup during the day? I apply it before Im about to go out, not usually before because I dont wear makeup unless Im going out. I take it off either when my face starts to become irritated or before bed.

  14. margot

    When do you apply/remove your makeup during the day? I apply in the morning before I go out and take it off when I come back to my dorm. Though if I’m having a night out, I’ll skip makeup in the day and just apply it in the evening before going out. And whatever the time I come back, I’ll always take my makeup off.

  15. Missy

    I reapply lipgloss/lipstick all the time like every 2 hours, I don’t touch up my makeup unless its a hot mess lol and I apply my makeup before school or before I go out anywhere and I take it off before I go to bed and/or I go in the shower.

  16. How often do you reapply lipgloss/lipstick during the day? I reapply maybe 1-5x during the day, typically after meals, though sometimes I forget, then I just reapply when my lips feel dry. It depends very much on what I’m wearing. The Laura Mercier stickglosses I don’t feel like I have to reapply practically at all. Other lipsticks that dry out my lips I have to blot, use lip balm and then reapply more often, otherwise I get a progressively flakier mess.

    Do you touch-up your makeup during the day? Not really, other than using blotting papers to remove excess oil. I do this 0-2x a day depending on if I have time or remember to check (and how long my day is).

    When do you apply/remove your makeup during the day? I apply my makeup at the beginning of the day, right after I take a shower. I take it off variably… usually right before bed when I’m also washing my face/brushing my teeth, but if I’ve got a long night of work ahead of me I try to take it off as soon as I get home so I don’t sit with a greasy face of makeup ’till 4am.

    I’m usually at school or work most days, I really don’t feel like I need to take too much time to touch up my make up, the only time I do that is at a formal event or if I go out or something.
