I'm able to put my makeup on in 5 to 10 minutes, depending on where I'm going and the environment. During the hot summer months I typically wear less because I don't like the feeling of it dripping down my face. In the winter, I slather on a lot of moisturizer under my makeup.
I start with foundation, dot a few specks of concealer under my eyes, and smooth it out with a makeup sponge. I dust a little blush on my cheeks, line my eyes with a smudge liner, and then put on one or two coats of mascara. Since my eyebrows are so light, I lightly fill them in with eyebrow pencil and brush them out with a toothbrush that I use specifically for that purpose. After I add my lipstick, I'm good to go for the day. For special occasions, I use eyeshadow and add another coat of mascara.

Next I style my hair. Since my hair is so dry, I went from washing it daily to every three days. It took some getting used to, but I think it's healthier and much easier to style. I have shoulder-length hair that's long enough for a small ponytail because I think it's much easier to handle than uber-long hair or a super short cut. Most of the time I wear it down, unless I'll be outdoors in the blazing-hot sun for a while. Then up it goes. I get it trimmed every couple of months to prevent it from looking fried.

Getting dressed is always quick for me because I typically wear jeans and a casual top. However, if I have to get a little more dressed up, I choose my outfit (clothes, jewelry, and other accessories) the night before. That way I don't always feel as though I'm running behind.
