What'sort your daily makeup routine?

I've never been really into makeup but have been making more of an effort for the last year, and especially since having my third baby a few months back. I find that it gives me a confidence boost and makes me feel less frumpy. My routine is:

Moisturiser after shower
Foundation
Mineral powder
Eyebrow powder
Lipstick

And if I have time, I put on some blusher and a teeny bit of eyeshadow. Timed myself yesterday (without blusher or eyeshadow) and it came in under 3 minutes, which is great because it's usually slapped on in the hall as I rush out the door blush

Been wondering if I can squeeze in a bit of highlight/contour too but that might be too adventurous. I usually only wear mascara/eyeliner for a night out as it makes my eyes itch.

Interested in hearing other people's routines!

Title should read 'what's your daily makeup routine'. D'oh!

Touché eclat
Foundation
Blusher
Mascara

Takes two mins.

If it's the evening and I'm going out then i do the above again but add eye shadow and lipstick which takes another 30 secs.

I don't understand how some people take thirty mins on make up.

Similar to yours. A combined foundation, cream blushed, under eye concealer, mascara, lipstick. Takes all of 2.5-3 mins. Might add a bit of eyeshadow and eye liner on a night out.

Moisturiser and mascara, when I remember. Walked out today fully intending to wear make up and just forgot. I will wear a full face for a night out though

Pirisprinkles Sat 01-Jul-17 16:14:49

I don't wear makeup daily. Basic routine would be :
Sun cream
Eyelash curler
Mascara
Blusher

pasturesgreen Sat 01-Jul-17 16:43:54

I'll start off by saying I'm on the beauty products hoard thread...

Toner
Eye cream
Serum
Day cream with SPF
Concealer
Primer
Eye shadow
Eye pencil and/or eyeliner
Eyebrow pencil and gel
Mascara
Lip balm
Foundation
Powder
Lip pencil
Lipstick
Lip gloss

For the evening I'll mix up the colours but the routine remains the same.

I hate being rushed, so takes about 15 to 20 minutes while drinking my second cup of tea. I have it down to an art now, so can do it in less than 10 minutes if I absolutely have too.

pasturesgreen Sat 01-Jul-17 16:44:53

God, it kinda looks bad once it's written down...blush

bananafish81 Sat 01-Jul-17 16:45:35

My skin is crap at the moment due to acne

So at the moment it's a lightweight foundation

Used to just be tinted moisturiser

Both on top of oil free primer

Then concealer
Loose powder to set
Powder blusher

Eyebrow pencil / brow gel

Nude eye shadow

Eyeliner (smudgey shadow crayon) if I'm not wearing any lip colour

If I'm wearing a bright lippy then I just leave eyes unlined

Mascara

Takes no more than 5 mins

Keep a concealer stick, blotting papers, powder compact and lipstick in my handbag for mopping up the oil slick that is my face during the day, and reapplying lippy if I've gone for a rock chick red lip

I don't do contouring or any of that shit, although as I'm super pale I do give myself a swirl of subtle bronzing powder just to make me look slightly less ghostly

bananafish81 Sat 01-Jul-17 16:48:52

Oh and most important part of the whole routine - always start with SPF 50

Although that's strictly part of my skincare routine as I always apply that even on a no makeup day, unless I'm not leaving the house at all

Copperspot Sat 01-Jul-17 16:54:59

Shower and hair wash night before.

Morning =

On a night out i really go for it though, im out tonight and will spend at least an hour on make up.

ChardonnaysPrettySister Sat 01-Jul-17 17:07:09

Tinted moisturiser
Eye pencil

Two and a half minutes, if that.

MrsChopper Sat 01-Jul-17 17:09:22

Mine is:

Moisturiser/serum (sometimes both)
Concealer
Foundation on work days - bb cream on days off
Blusher (always powder)
Teeny bit bronzer if I am feeling fancy
Black kohl liner (inner upper waterline - makes your lashes look thicker)
Eyebrow pencil
Mascara
Light dusting of multihighlight powder if I am feeling fancy
Translucent powder
Lipbalm if I am feeling fancy

Takes me 10-15 minutes while I drink my coffee in the morning smile for a night out I would add some eyeshadow and maybe lipstick.

I remember the good ol' days when a smudge of mascara and nothing else would do the trick blush

Gertiegoolash Sat 01-Jul-17 17:11:20
