Thursday's $10 Sephora Gift Card Giveaway: How Long Does it Take You to Get Ready in the Morning?



*Editor’s Note: This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner Carmen K!

Nicki’s Answer: “10 minutes. The biggest time-saver: I get blowouts for my hair 2 times a week, and preserve it between by using a shower cap and twisting my hair up at night. The rest is just cleansing, FutureDerm Vitamin CE Caffeic, sunscreen, powder, blush, eyeliner, and lipstick. Good to go!”

Natalie’s Answer: “Did I miss my alarm this morning? I can be ready in five minutes, but if I have the time, I usually take 20.”

Tell us how long it takes you to get ready in the morning, and you could win a $10 gift card to Sephora! The winner will be randomly selected and announced in the comment section on the morning of March 8 — so keep an eye out!

    It depends on what look I am going for! If I am going for natural and chic it only takes about 15 minutes to get ready! I just curl my eyelashes, put on My perfekt beauty skin perfection gel, mascara, and lip gloss and I am good to go! When I am going for a bold look it takes about a half hour or so to get ready sometimes longer depending on my hair! But I typically shower at night and blow dry my hair so its all ready in the a.m.!

  • Mae

    If I shower, do my hair, full on makeup and pick an outfit, 1 hour.
    If I just wash my face (shower at night), skincare and simple makeup and hair = 40 minutes.
    If I just wash my face, skincare, simple hair + no makeup = 20 minutes.

    I’m pretty high maintenance and I don’t like rushing when it comes to my skincare or makeup. I eat my breakfast at work.

  • Diana Devlin

    If I want everything to come out as perfectly as possible, it’s close to 2 hours. But most days, it takes 1 1/2 hours. So much work to be beautiful!
