Normally about 15-20 minutes for daily wear (with smokey eye, eye liner etc) and for a special event probably 40-50 minutes depending on a few factors like eye shadow and false eyelashes.

5 minutes.  Is that horrible?  I do the same thing, regardless of where I’m going.

Staying at home/no guests: 0 min (of course, face washing is not included, lol)

Running errands/work: maybe 7-10 min (tinted moisturizer, concealer, foundation (mineral), blush, mascara (I am guilty of being too lazy to do anything with my eyes and using whatever’s left over from my blush brush, lol).

Going out/eye makeup: 10-15 (includes everything above)

I am definitely no expert when it comes to makeup and will have a professional “do me” for the big day!

Daily makeup takes me less than 5 minutes (I only do eyes).  If I’m getting ready for a night out… it takes me like an hour because I have no idea wtf I’m doing.  :1

1-2 minutes, eyeliner is a must and pressed powder.

I put on full makeup (moisturizer, sunblock, liquid foundation, blush, eyeliner or eyeshadow, mascara and lipstick) every morning and it takes about 10 minutes max. I usually take more time deciding what I’m going to wear. :p

10-15 minutes (foundation, blush, mascara) … I can do it much more quickly when I’m in a hurry, but I tend to pause to chit-chat with my fiance, wash my hands in between, etc.

@Candybar:  Mascara for me takes the longest because I use two different brands and multiple coats (length and then volume). 🙁

On the rare occasion that I wear it, usually 2 minutes – just some foundation to cover up anything that shouldn’t be allowed to see the light of day. If I’m going out, I might take 5-10 minutes to do eye shadow, mascara, etc. But I usually don’t bother too much, I’m not really a makeup person

When I do a full face for a party or something I can take up to an hour because I moisturize, use primers and like to let things set, though I typically work on my hair while I let my moisturizer sink in, primer set, foundation set, eye primer set…

Daily look, 5 minutes, nicer daily look 5-10. Sometimes If I do a less involved full face it take more like 15-20 minutes (no special eyeshadow looks, etc).

25-40 minutes, depending on whether it’s a normal day or special occassion and if my skin is behaving itself.

7 minutes.  I have been doing it so long that I have it down.

Daily under 10 minutes, going out 15-20, all out/special occasion 30 minutes including dramatic eye make up/ false lashes. I don’t usually go out without at least moisturizer, mascara, lipgloss, blush
