beauty routine lol

posted 1 decade 5 years ago
just wondered on a average day when you have to leave the house and see people,how much time do you spend getting yourselves ready and what do you do?
I usually put on some make up foundation,cover up,powder,blusher,eyeliner,mascara and lippy this take me about 5 Min's as I am so used to wearing it I could put it on in the dark
I also have to tackle the dreaded hair which is usually put in a ponytail then I have to straighten the fringe and sides as like a few bits coming down on each side,this takes about another 5 Min's as usually have the straighteners heating up as I am putting on my make up,I usually have everything on to hand so I can do this in 10 Min's
my biggest flaw is that I only use soap and water for my face and a bit of moisturiser after as have fairly oily skin so hate putting on to much products,
but I only do all this if I am leaving the house otherwise am make up free most of the time,
and for a night out thats a whole different matter it could take hours,

I don't wear make up every day (just special occasions) And I make sure my hair is straight if it is down if not it is slapped into a pony tail.

Strangely enough makeup's not my thing! A shave and a bit of water to stop my hair sticking up, and thats me ready. Bed to out the door in 15 minutes, including breakfast.

Im a bit like you JOJO,when i am home i am natural but mostly i always put on a bit of mascara lipgloss and blush (10 mins),when i go out to a function during the day (like today)i will put on foundation,powder,blush etc,etc and straighten my hair and use hair products(about 1 1/2 hours) but if it is evening i will go the full hog and really take my time and make more of an effort(1-2 hours)because its not often that i get to dress up lol.

Well, I'm starting to wear make up for work, some foundation and eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara and a bit of lipgloss, just because I feel old at the mo lol, and felt i needed a bit of a pick me up, but if i can't be bothered then i don't wear any!

I'm au naturale at home though, unless i'm going out.

I'm a bit lazy when it comes to shaving, just when i know there's a chance that my armpits or legs are going to be seen, or i'm off swiming Embarassed

i try my best to keep up with cleansing and toning, as i've struggled with spots since having the kids.

dont do makeup unless im on a night out then it is only a bit of mascara and lip gloss hair tied back our lose but no huge amount of time spent.

I dont like wearing makeup and dont feel i need it. All i ever use is herbal balm for the dark circles under my eyes (reflects the light)

god I wish I could say I dont need it,I dont look human without it

I wear foundation or tinted moisturizer. Also mascara and sometimes eye shadow. O and concealer lol, can't go out without it on makes me feel a little better. Hair normally blow dry and put it up or straighten if I have time.

I take a shower, wash hair and body, get out, brush my teeth, brush my hair and get dressed... the getting dressed part is what can take me long because I don't have alot of cool clothes and I will change a few times before I'm satisfied with my choice... and sometimes a little mascara if I'm going out for the night... that's bout it for me... I'm not a very girly girl Razz

It totally depends for me - sometimes I can be out in 10 mins but others it can be 2hours. As i am very pregnant I am enjoying long soaks in the bath at the moment. Found some great beauty information at and its great for mums to be especially, we deserve it too you know!

It takes me about 15 minutes to get ready, loo, shave, shower, teeth then slap my clothes on and my hair can dry in the car on the way to work.

It depends where I'm going...generally It takes me 30 minutes if I have a shower..It's fast if I know what clothes I'm wearing, if not... whe whole life... I have some make up like mascara and gloss only. Very happy

Always moisturise and usally will pop on a little light liquid foundation.

Always have mascara and atleast lipgloss (usually vaseline rose therapy)

If i'm off into town and shopping meeting friends i must say i do wear eyeliner, eyeshadow and a little bit of blush...

I use a specific soap to address some facial issues. I apply moisturizer after taking a bath and before putting a makeup. I use a light foundation and powder to cover up some dark spots on the face and uneven skin tones and i put on my lipstick.

That's actually a good choice. For additional moisturizing I apply coconut masks both on my face and hair, though if you have a very dry skin and scalp then I recommend argan oil instead. I also use straightening balm and nourishing mascara everyday, I advise you to do that.

I've been building my routine for a long time, I have combination skin, so I use different products. I spend a lot of time moisturizing, I use a moisturizer, I like this Korean cosmetics Then I apply a night cream. In the morning I just wash my face with soap and water. It's not hard, and so far so good.
