My makeup does not vary from week to weekend. I don’t work any longer so I put on makeup pretty much the same. The difference for me is more related to what I am doing such as going to the dump or going to the city.

I can put a full face of makeup on in about 30 minutes. If I am in a really big hurry I can shave some time off by using a BB cream and powdering over with a mineral foundation for better coverage but perfecting the base is where my time is spent. I like to really work at concealing my hyper-pigmentation, minimizing pores and getting an all over glow.

Does your makeup vary from the week compared to the weekend? sometimes on the weekend, it is much lighter since I’m going to the gym, working in the garden, etc., but then again, the weekend DOES afford me a bit more leeway if I want to go a bit more “daring” in terms of colours, etc.
How long does it usually take for you to do your makeup? Start to finish, from cleansing and moisturizing to done, usually 20 minutes to half an hour (plus maybe 5 minutes to let things like moisturizer or primer “set” and to FIND STUFF – all that digging for brushes and pencils can sometimes add precious seconds)

How days per week: Usually 7 days. I don’t see the point in not wearing makeup. I haven’t worn a lot of makeup the last few weeks bc I’m moving but I still wear something. On average, I wear a full face 7 days unless I’m sick and I was since 0 days last year.

Does makeup vary from week to weekend: Not really. Im not into untraditional colors like blue lipstick or super glam w falsies and red lips so what I wear during the week, I wear on the weekends. I don’t really have “special occasion ” makeup I guess.

My look for work is defo more natural. Ok really natural It’s still a full face though. The weekend I like to put a bit more in and either do my eyes or my lips.

How long does it usually take for you to do your makeup? anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour. I like to take my time if I can, but can definitely get out of the house fast if I’m running late or just short on time.

Lt-med warm skin tone. Wear makeup almost everyday – though have realized lately how much easier nightime routine is w/out mascara (defaulting to just liner). I have reddish areas and some discoloration that I like to cover, and it takes a few steps – color corrector, foundation, concealer, powder to do it right and make it last. As I’ve gotten older, also “need” lip primer and liner to give lips back a crisper shape & hold lipstick. Again, saggier face tempts me to try to add back shape w/ contour & highlight. By the time I’m done with all the counteracting measures, hard to get away in under 30 minutes. If I’m seeing clients in person or via Zoom, add in attention to brightening color. When I was younger, vanity wasn’t such a strict task master.

Wear makeup every day, as my skin has a lot of redness from past acne scarring.
