I can’t believe I used to spend 2-3 hours on my makeup ALL THE TIME.
For that matter, I can’t believe I used to have 2-3 uninterrupted hours to spend on my makeup, LOL! That’s what I was doing a few years ago, putting in a few hours for every look, but I was in a hardcore learning mode, and I was taking pics of everything I did and learned for MBB. And whenever a camera gets involved, my makeup always takes longer, because I’m trying to be extra careful that everything is symmetrical and that my lighting is right. Plus, I usually use a remote control with the camera, and sometimes it’s a struggle to get a decent pic where I’m not blinking, fidgeting or cringing.
Hmm… The longest I’ve ever spent was probably about three hours (!). I know that I’ve spent most of an entire afternoon before, but it was half learning, half playing.
These days, though, an hour is my max, and that’s usually when the Coywolf is sleeping. Most days, I spent 20 minutes.
But I totally miss doing the uber-glam stuff! I miss having extra time to play and paint my face and express myself, and I miss being able to say, “Hey, I did that!”
I really have to remember to schedule some “me time” for one of these weekends coming up so I can lose myself in blending again. Makeup is SO MUCH FUN.
What about you, sweets? What’s the longest you’ve ever spent on a makeup look?
