Usually before bed, unless it’s irritating my contacts. Which happens sometimes, so I’ll take it off when I’m home for the rest of the day.

It depends. Sometimes I take it off while I’m watching TV before sleeping. Or if it’s been a really hot yucky day, I take it off as soon as I get home. 🙂

That depends on the weather and my mood, too..
If it´s really hot and I am sweaty, I usually take it off as soon as I get home…on other days I like my eye makeup so much that I don´t want to take it off..stupid, right? :o)

I pretty much wait until I am ready to hit the pillow. I take it off when I’m done brushing my teeth, but before taking my contacts out. I mean, I love my makeup! Why not enjoy it as long as possible? 😀

There are a few instances when I don’t do this, and that’s if I hit the gym late in the day, and take a shower, but then there isn’t enough day left to justify makeup.

In the summer, there are days where I take it off as soon as I get home because I want to take another shower due to the insane humidity we experience here. But most days, I wash my face as soon as I get home, take off my lipstick, but leave my eye make-up on. So it’s mostly about thirty minutes to an hour before I go to bed that I take it off.

It depends. In high school, I would wash my face as soon as I got home. At university, makeup comes off before bed, but sometimes as early as after dinner and sometimes as late as 1 or 2 in the morning. At home, it’s more random – before the pool, after dance class, after shopping, really whenever I start to feel icky – but always, always, ALWAYS before bed!

It depends. Sometimes as soon as I come home, sometimes in stages like today. After worship I came home and took of my lashes but didn’t wash my face. I did a few things around the house, cooked dinner and went and removed my lipstick and contacts. I’ll wash and moisturize right before bed. Other days I don’t remove anything until I’m ready to hop in the sack.

Usually just before bed, but when I know I’m home for the day and not going out anywhere, I’ll use my Lush Tea Tree Water toner just to get off my foundation and the day’s dirt, my eye makeup comes off when I do my thorough face wash before bed.

right before i take a shower then i use NOXZEMA continuous clean microbead cleanser with vitamin C. my skin feels refresh and tingly when i go to bed.

I always remove my make up before my shower (in the evening) because I like to wash it off with water and facial liquid soaps. I find makeup removers greasy and don’t like to keep that feel on my skin. Also, I know how sad it is to destroy a particularly gorgeous and successful look (eye makeup) so I take pics of it to help me remember how I did it and to recreate it some other time.

I take my makeup off at night time when I get ready for bed, unless it’s bothering my skin or my eyes; then I wash it off as soon as I get home. When I don’t leave my house for the day and nobody is coming over, I don’t wear makeup. But I never leave my house without it!

Usually once I’m sure that I’m in for the night, I take off my makeup. That could be once I get home from work or right before bed, just depends on the day.

I take off my make-up right before I get in the bed. I have roommates and as far as I’m concerned none of them ever need to see me without makeup.
