Make-up doesn’t take that long….

So, I am a girl. (In case anyone hasn’t noticed)
I do girly things.
Like make-up. I have worn make-up since I was 12 years old and if you are one of those people who are going to try to convince me to stop, it’s too late.
We have gone too far with the make-up.

I’ve always known that my make-up takes up the largest portion of my time getting ready.
I mean, most of the time I spend getting ready for the day is in front of the mirror. I usually shower at night, so that time is taken away from getting ready. And the rest of the time is just putting on clothes.
But I didn’t really think  my mirror time/make-up took that long. I mean, I do a pretty basic make-up routine.
I don’t like wearing a ton eye shadow, because at the end of the day it doesn’t look as good as it did in the beginning of the day.
Plus, I am very phlegmatic and that’s a lot of work.

Anyways, I always think that even though I spend the bulk of my time in front of the mirror, it really doesn’t take me that long. (Repeating myself)
However, there is a stereotype out there about girls taking a long time to get ready.
Just for kicks and for my own knowledge, I timed myself in front of the mirror.

From the beginning of putting my hair up to wash my face/brush my teeth to the time I put in my contacts (Yes, I put in my contacts after doing my make-up) and taking my hair down.
This is the amount of time it took:

I decided after doing that little exercise that I was going to get up a little earlier to accommodate the fact that I very closely take almost an hour in front of the mirror.
And the bulk of that is my eyeliner.
Knowledge is power.

Anyways, here is my make-up.
Let me know if it’s not 38 minutes worth.
