toner, face wash, scrub, moisturizer,acne cream.
powder,mineral veil, blush, bronzer, e/s, e/l, lip balm
TOTAL= 12 products
most days its a little less so maybe 8 or 10

Hm. These days it’s been: foundation/concealer (they’re the same thing since it’s Everyday Minerals)(1), Urban Decay Primer Potion (2), vanilla pigment (3), eye liner of some sort (4), mascara (5), blush sometimes (6), lip gloss (7), maybe a crease eye shadow color (8).

Phew! I was afraid I’d start counting and it’d be humongous!

normal day: face primer, moisturizer, concealer, foundation, one or two eyeshadows, mascara, sometimes blush, lip primer and lipgloss/stick. Bare Minerals at night. About every second day I also cleanse and tone.

so full regime day: 13 products
minimum make up day: 9

didn’t realize I used that many products… I had an idea of me as kind of “au naturel”. guess I need to rethink that one 😉

face wash 1
spray toner 2
moisturizer 3
mascara 4
blush 5
lip gloss 6
beauty powder7
cover up 8

so a total of 8 on a normal day, but thats to walk the dog and take my son to school. After I get home I might add a couple more products.

Those are my usuals in the morning

cleanser, moisturiser, blemish stick, concealer, eyeshadow, eye liner, mascara, lip balm, powder = 9.

Not too bad 😀

I actually wash my face in the evening in the shower (so I consider it part of my shower routine along with body wash, shampoo, conditioner, etc)

moisturizer, concealer, paint pot, eyeshadow (anywhere from 1-4 colour usually 3), eyeliner, mascara, blush, lipgloss/lipstick. So that’s 8… But I still do it all pretty quickly 😀 I also wear nearly all neutrals with a few smokey eyes and pinks 😀

I don’t usually wear makeup, but here is my tally:
-with makeup: cleanser, day cream, highlighter, mascara, lipbalm and handcream. At night, cleanser, toner, night cream. Total: 9
-without make up: 4

Origins scrub, Cetaphil, moisturizer, eye cream, foundation, concealer, powder, blush, mascara, eyeliner, 2 or 3 shadows… 11 unless you count each individual shade. Interesting to think about. People wonder why we take so long.

-Brow powder
-Some lip product

= 13!
Some days may vary, though. Weekends I just go with concealer or just powder and just a smudge of eyeliner. So on lazy days it might be around 9 or 10.

I’ve got a whole routine now. Luminizing moisturizer, eye cream, lip primer, eye primer, concealer, foundation, bronzer/contour, blush, lip liner, lipstick, eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, brow pencil, lip balm, night cream.

Cleanser, toner, moisturizer, 2 eyeshadows, mascara, eyeliner, invisible blotting powder, lipgloss and perfume.

I don’t wear foundation everyday, but on the days that I do it’s the only additional product.

Full Makeup: Cleanser, eyecream, moisturizer, primer, concealer, mineral foundation, blush, contour, highlighter, brow shader, e/s base, e/s, eyeliner, mascara, lipliner, lipstick, lipgloss. (16)

Quick Makeup: Cleanser, moisturizer, mineral foundation, blush, brow shader, eyeliner, mascara, lipgloss. (9) (Real “quick” huh! lol)

Mascara primer
2 types of mascara
lip gloss

=14 give or take depending how lazy I am in the morning.

i use moisturiser, foundation, blusher, concealer, eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner. hmm so 7, i thought it would be more but if you use stuff that stands out then you don’t need all that much 🙂

Eek! I read all these and realized I use a lot of stuff every single day (except Sunday – then it’s just skincare, body moisturizer and my night skincare routine):

philosophy vitamin C booster powder w/
philosophy firming & lifting serum
Body moisturizer
Urban Decay PP
Ooh la lift (to depuff undereye)
Eyeshadows (usually 3)

Eye cream
Pigment fading serum
Night cream
Lip balm
Cuticle cream

OMG OMG – 28 (that’s counting the 3 eyeshadows separately)? Holy cow…and I thought my beauty routine was minimalist.

…more than I want to count, I think. >.< Mostly because I use different products at night from in the morning. I only wear makeup a couple days a week though, so that’s not too bad. But then there’s also the lip balms and cuticle creams and oils and hand cream and body lotion and…

More than I’d like…

Oil Control Lotion
Eye Bright (under-eye lightener)
Eyeshadow (2-3)
Brow Finisher
Clear Mascara (on brows)
Blush (2 – 3)

~15 then?!? That seems like a lot but it literally takes maybe 10 minutes at most.

i’ll just count my lazy days routine;
eyeshadow/also use as eyeliner
sculpt and shape

at night i just cleanse and moisturize, i’m lazy.

isn’t wonderful being a girl though? lots of stuff to play with.

Neutrogena scrub
dermalogica microfoliant
Dhc mineral mask
oil of olay moisturizer
nivea creme

total about 24 I use different products all the time

Wow I’ve never tried to keep a count, between 12 & 15 sometimes more or less. I have a certain products that I use in the shower only every day. Then I go through my whole face routine. I would like to ask the other girls how long does your morning beauty routine take from beginning to end?

Hi Kimberly – From the time I get out of the shower to the time I’m done with my routine (see above), it’s about 25 minutes.

How long have you used witch hazel? I’ve always wondered about using it because I have oily skin.

I would guess 10-15 minutes! Im walking the dog, getting breakfast for my son and making sure he keeps on schedule so we aren’t late for school. So there isn’t much time for me to do much as far as make-up goes…and I am certainly not going to get up earlier 🙂

1) Aveeno Clear Complexion foaming facial Wash
2) Aveeno Daily Skin Brightening Scrub
3) Aveeno daily facial moisturizer
4) Makeup Cleansing Cloths
5) MAC prep and prime
6) If its warm at work…MAC oil control lotion
7) Studio Tech Foundation
8) Expresso eye shadow to fill the brows
9) Cream Color Base (fawntastic or shell) for eyelid prep
10) 4 Eyeshadows
11) Maybelline liquid eyelinert
12) 1 Eyeshadow to highlight the inner crease
13) Eye Kohl pencil for the waterline
14) 2 blushes– one for coutour
15) Mineralize Skinfinish
16) Soothing Beige tinted lip balm
17)Lipglass lip liner
18) Lipglass of choice for the day

Number of brushes used daily– 6 at the minimum… sometimes 8 ^_^

I use about 15 products most of the time. It’s been a part of my routine for so many years now I can’t believe I use that many products!

face wash, moisturizer, foundation, powder, eyeshadow(usually 5-7 different ones) fluidline, two mascaras, another eyeshadow to fill in my eyebrows, blush, skinfinish, chapstick, lipstick or lipgloss, and sometimes matte bronzer for contouring.
total(including skincare and individual eyeshadows):20

This question terrifies me…
After adding it all up, on a regular daily basis I use 26 products. I never knew I used so many!
And when I really get dressed up I used a grand total of 36 items >.< It’s a bit mind blowing…
So much for living a simple life!
