The majority of women take 21 minutes getting ready for a shopping trip. But eight per cent take more than an hour. The time increases in the evening, with the average woman taking 54 minutes preparing for a girls’ night out – while a romantic evening takes 59 minutes of preparation. (Source:Dailymail)
I use to think I was under-average when it came to getting ready. You spend some time on hair and makeup and leave your house feeling great only to met your friends and instantly feel like they all look better than you. Everyone got the memo to get hot and you only got cute. I’m sure every girl and women has felt this at some point.
Most days now that i’m 25 and work from home, my morning routine only takes me 5 minutes. I wear foundation, blush, eye-shadow, mascara, and eyeliner. I’ve heard from a lot of women that your eye-shadow tells most about you and the color should be picked wisely, we’ve all seen some neon greens that just did not work out. A simple day makeup look that works with any product you have on hand is easy to do in under 5.
The major thing I would like to stress is a moisturized sunscreen before applying ANY makeup. Most women skip this in their ritual but it is the most important! Here are a few great suggestions from mixedmakeup.com
Send me some photos of your eye-shadow, one will be included in my next makeup post!
Do you take longer than most women? Let me know, send me an email!
