Just following on from other threads - I am really interested to know how many of you wear makeup everyday, if you do what time do you have to get up in the morning to do it??

I do. Takes me about 5 minutes to apply:-

moisturiser (not really make up, but hey)
foundation (usually just on my nose and under my eyes, I've got really good skin, but my nose is a bit red (rudolph!) and I get dark cirles)
bit of bronzer if I look a bit peaky

I wear make up every day. Even if it's a home day. Intrigues me that people think it's takes ages to out on. I can do it in 5 mins, that's tinted moisturiser, cheek tint, bronzer and mascara and a bit of lip gloss.

I'm of the 5 minute make-up gang too - don't wear loads but wouldn't leave the house without it

Jazzi · 12/09/2006 12:07

Do you ever go out without it?

Not every day, but never leave house without sunscreen and moisturiser on.

Tutter · 12/09/2006 12:08

me. but only mascara and blusher. i have time because ds tends to wake at around 5:30 .

kando · 12/09/2006 12:08

I do! I get up at 6.45 so I'm completely ready before waking the 3 dds. It takes me less than 10 minutes to apply it.

littlemissbossy · 12/09/2006 12:08

Jazzi - I wouldn't unless it was an emergency - HONESTLY

MamaG · 12/09/2006 12:08

No I don't go out without at least mascara. I'm blonde so have fair eyelashes and look dreadful without at least that.

Quootiepie · 12/09/2006 12:08

Gawd, I have to wear makeup! I always do mine in the car (passenger!) though. I dont think ive done mine before going out since I was about 18. If I dont, you can see all my blemishes, I look like I have no eyelashes... yuk.

LiliLaTigresse · 12/09/2006 12:09

me too, takes 5mn:
touche eclat
eye shadow (one block colour)
gloss/lip balm (don't do lipstick)
looks natural, but does make me look better

Jazzi · 12/09/2006 12:09

This is making me feel very slovenly, I only ever wear makeup if I am going out or if I have an important meeting. Don't even wear it for work!!.

Wear light makeup if I am leaving the house, takes 5 minutes, I do it for my own benefit in that I feel better about myself if I have a bit on.

CountessDracula · 12/09/2006 12:13

work days I manage mascara and lip gloss usually

Other times not really

CountessDracula · 12/09/2006 12:13

(oh unless going out of course)

Northerner · 12/09/2006 12:14

No, I never go out of the house without it on.

Gobbledigook · 12/09/2006 12:14

Yes I do.
Takes 5 minutes tops. I get up about 7.10.

I put on:

eyeshadow (nude)
tiny bit of blush
nudish lipstick or just a bit of gloss

intergalacticwalrus · 12/09/2006 12:15

I do too, only because I am more of a pigdog without it.

Beetroot · 12/09/2006 12:16

10 mins max


in winter foundation and eye thing.

Stiglet · 12/09/2006 12:16

yep I'm in the 5 minute gang too, usually put it on whilst dd is eating breakfast first thing. I always feel awful if I don't wear any!

Jazzi · 12/09/2006 12:17

Am I the only one - I don't think it makes that much of a difference for me -ugly without it, ugly with make up on with it!!

Gobbledigook · 12/09/2006 12:18

There are definitely mums at school who don't have make up on and they look fine without it. I look a horror without it adn wouldn't inflict it on anyone

Lilymaid · 12/09/2006 12:18

Every day when at work - 5 minutes (or less) in station car park as I like to allow plenty of time to drive to station. I generally forget when I'm at home until I look in the mirror and (shock horror) see my naked face.

Furball · 12/09/2006 12:20

I always wear it too and I'm also a 5 minute gal


marthamoo · 12/09/2006 12:21

I do - takes me about 5 minutes. Moisturiser, foundation (though I haven't been wearing any over the summer - I've been using that hint of a tan moisturiser stuff), eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara. Clear lip gloss (don't really do lipstick unless I'm going out). It's just part of my morning routine - like brushing my teeth.

I went out last week without eye make-up as I had a contact lens check - and was told I looked "tired" [for tired read crap!] by a Mum at school.
