Full face for work...(primer, concealer, foundation, powder, brows, eyeshadow base, eyeshadow [between three and six colors], eyeliner, mascara base, mascara, blush [between one and three colors], lip liner, lipstick, and lip gloss)...twenty to thirty minutes.

 

Full face for going out...(all of the above plus a more complicated eyeshadow routine, more eyeliner, and false lashes)...thirty to forty-five minutes...but that's usually because I have more time to play around.

If I am doing an out the door look, it generally takes about 15 minutes but when I go all out with the shadow, it can take about 45 minutes to an hour.

It all depends on how much time I have and what look I am going for. I usually allow myself 30-45 min in the morning for my MU, but thats b/c I fiddle around, drink coffee, things like that. If I am going out, it could take a long time. When I do other peoples it all depends on what it is for. Pageants usually take 45-90 min since application has to be a little heavier due to stage lights. Weddings are always a toss up-sometimes the bride freaking out about something and keeps getting up, sometimes they just want something fresh and natural looking. it all depends on the person and what they want.

yea I'm with you here. I get up in at 7 to feed my dog, brush my teeth and moisturize and prime and from 7:30 to 8:15 i'm getting ready. I can do it much quicker but i obsess over everything. Plus, since i keep everything in two big traincases, it takes up a lot of my time sorting through what i'm looking for, having to pull out this and that and what brush i want to use. For a night out, about an hour.

 

I think if i had a vanity itd be much easier to get ready in the morning much quicker. plus i won't stop messing with my mp3 player and changing the song and watching tv.

Under 15 mins. On my work days, I get up at 5 am. I have to leave in 45 mins and that includes getting my kids ready for school and the sitters.

Varies for me as well:

 

Quickie running around to do errends/day look~ 15 minutes

Going out, depends on the look~ anywhere from 45-60 minutes (provided my Husband keeps the kids occupied smile.gif )

 

 

On clients, again it depends on the look, how many faces I have and the type event.

Like a bride I take my time, an hour or so. Bridal parties 30 minutes each girl. Photoshoots I usually only have 20 minutes or so for each model.

heheh I like this thread already!!!

 

Ok natural look, nothing over the top, just quick application of stuff I already know how to do really well and am used to doing? Which means a lil bit of liquid liner, mascara, mineral foundation and blush.

5 min tops.

 

But if I am going for something a little more daring, trying new colors or something bold that I already know how to do but I want it to blend well and have nice flow. Including the essentials of course : eyeliner, mascara, blush, foundation.

It can take up to 30 min or more depending on just how exact I am trying to be or haha or much I have to grab a wet q-tip or baby wipe haha.

usually for work, between 20 and 30 minutes..

 

and between 30 and 40 for going out.

 

It really depends how much time I have. I can do makeup in 5 minutes, but mostly I have more time, so I use it, lol.

For work: 20 minutes

For a more done up weekday/weekend look: 30 minutes

For an evening out look: an hour (but that's cause I suck)

Normally it takes me around 15 minutes.

 

But, if it is for a special occasion, then it can take me at least 30 minutes. As, I like to look extra polished when I am going somewhere special.

I never wear a full face to work, I work in a stock room so I'd just sweat it all off. TMI?

 

A full face can take me anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on how much I feel like playing around. I have my 'safe' colors and styles that I can do quickly, but sometime I like to mix and match a bit more.

For work, around 15-20 minutes. For going out, anywhere from 20-45 minutes, depending on how dramatic I want my makeup.

    • Dampen your hair then apply the filler for 20 min.(for using with dye) If using it as a conditioner, dilute it first and refrigerate. 
    • 1. I love falsies & prefer how i look w them on so I ended up getting lash extensions. My eyes look bigger & brighter w no makeup even & it helps me not feel like i HAVE to do my makeup before going out. When i do wear makeup (most of time) i don’t have to apply falsies so it saves time. Overall I just love how it looks!   2. Pretty much answered above. 3. I had a groupon for the place i go to & just loved them so I decided to continue going there + theyre not far & really nice! They do my lashes exactly how i like! Ive been to other places & they were good except never did what i wanted.
    • Personally i do acrylics w gel polish. Wbu?
    • Ive wanted to add vitamin c serum to my skin care routine so I bought one & it was too harsh & i broke out. Any suggestions for sensitive skin vitamin c serum? Links are best! + any experience & it being on amazon would be ideal but please suggest any!!
