    I actually apply my makeup in my car a lot. Not while I’m driving, obviously. I have a 40 mile commute to work so I have to leave at least a half an hour early in case there’s a traffic backup on the expressway. Well, there usually isn’t and I always get to work really early so I use that time to listen to morning radio and put on makeup.

    My makeup is usually ALL OVER my bathroom. It’s actually pretty ridiculous how I never put anything away. I wish I had a vanity so it didn’t make my sink area such a mess 😬😬

    In the bathroom. I wake up earlier than my husband, so he’s still asleep while I’m getting ready.

    I use our spare bedroom to get ready. I have my clothes in that closet and I have a vanity table where I do my makeup in that room. I do my hair in the bathroom.

    Bathroom. We’re lucky enough to have double sinks in our bathroom, so space in front of the mirror isn’t an issue.

    I work from home and lets just say the amount of makeup I now wear went WAYYYYYYY down since I stopped going into the office. But when I do, it’s in the bathroom

    bathroom.. in our apartment I got up before (well same alarms–but I’m a SPRING OUT OF BED sort of person and he’s a slowly groan awake sort of person) him and put on makeup while he woke up.  (I don’t put much makeup on so it takes maybe 5 minutes anyway.)

    now that we live in a home I have my makeup stuff in the second bathroom so I’ll put it on up there.. often he isn’t really awake by the time I’m done, same as before, but this gives us the flexibility if I’m running late or he wakes up a little faster.

    We have a hall closet outside our bathroom that has a full length mirror. I keep the makeup in the closet and pull it out and do my makeup right at that mirror. I would do it in the bathroom but we only have 1 bathroom so I don’t want to take up that spot in the morning.

    I totally understand where you’re coming from. I used to do my makeup on the floor of my bedroom and I HATE doing my makeup in the bathroom… I finally invested in a beautiful vanity table, mirror, and a lighted mirror and it makes getting ready so much easier and less stressful. Even if you’re on a tight budget you can find a desk and a mirror. I spent a few months creating my perfect space and I love it 🙂 I honestly wish I did this sooner, as I spent about 10 years doing my makeup in odd corners of the house or on the floor!

    MrsSapphire :  my vanity is in my bedroom. But if I’m running late I’ll do it at work, either in the bathroom or in my cubicle.
