I have first period spare, so class starts at 9:40 for me so I usually get up at 8:30 so that I have 10 min just to do my brows and another 10 minute for foundation and mascara. If I have extra time or feel like doing a little more I also add some highlight on my cheekbones. So in total it takes me just about 20-25 minutes.

I wake up at like 7:30, roll around in bed a bit before actually getting up at 7:50, eat breakfast and do a bit of eyeliner/mascara in around 10 minutes. I haven't tried actual full face makeup like powder and foundation and whatnot... haven't learned how to do that yet LOL

It takes about five minutes for me.  I put on minimal amounts of mascara, lotion when skin is dry, and lip gloss sometimes. I wake up at 6:00, but makeup doesn't factor into how early I wake up.

It all depends on how much time I have left after I wake up and take a shower. If I have 30 mins, I'll utilize it in the best way possible. Sadly, being a senior in high school means late nights and early mornings so I pretty much only have time to do my eyebrows or chuck on lip balm or gloss.

THIS morning I woke up at 6:55 AM and had to get ready and everything to catch my bus at 7:15 AM (it is a 5 min walk to the bus stop)

Well make up for school or work I usually stick to the basics, foundation, lipstick, eyeliner and mascara. This usually takes 15 minutes, so in the morning i decide whether im doing my mke up or im going to sit on my phone for that time instead staying warm in bed. But for events and things that i go all out for, it takes me usually 30 minutes unless i curl my hair ( I have long think hair so that takes a while). that is with contouring and blush, eye brows and eye shadow with the basics.

Depends on the amount of makeup you put on. Roughly 30 -45 minutes.

If you keep practicing your favourite look consistently, I'm pretty sure you can nail the look down in less than twenty minutes. I s*** you not, it takes me less than 20 minutes to do a light contour, put on falsies + eyeliner, and all the other stuff with spare time to quickly brush my hair. 

If you get a ride to school by the way, consider using some of that time to apply makeup. (E.g. I do my mascara + highlighting in the car sometimes).

Btw I don't like how some people put down other girls for wearing makeup, just let us live! It's an art, and I enjoy putting it on. Don't give me the confidence and sleeping c***, I'm doing this for me and I enjoy having the extra time in the morning for myself and patting this stuff on lol
If a girl chooses to cake her face and you don't, good for you, don't shame anyone else for doing it

for all my face makeup (foundation, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara) it takes me maybe 10 minutes but if I'm in a hurry I can do it in less than 5 minutes - it just won't look as good lol
