How long do you spend on your makeup, on average, each day?

Most days, 30 to 45 minutes for the initial application, and then I’ll apply different lip colors through the day or different cheek colors if I have the hours left to test a second set!

15 minutes if I’m in a hurry, 30-45 minutes is probably an average time. Sometimes I spend an hour doing my makeup, just because it’s fun and relaxing.
A lot of time goes toward finding the right lipstick, I often have one in mind, but a lot of days I find I don’t like it and have some days had to try up to ten before finding the exact right one. I’m actually contemplating starting with the lips and chose everything else to look right with the lipstick. However it’s easier to wipe lipstick off than eyeshadows. 🙂

Generally I spend around 15 minutes or so. Applying my foundation, blush, eye brow pencil and setting powder is quick and easy. I take a bit more time hunting around in my lipstick bag for the lippie I want and a few more minutes working out which eyeshadow palette(s) I want to use.
