Blank Canvas Cosmetics contour brush: Kim Kardashian spends 90mins on makeup. How long do you spend?

By Aisling | October 16 2012 | 38 Comments


Now I wouldn’t say this was a bad Photoshop job AT ALL would you?

When I was sent this Blank Canvas Contour Brush to try the blurb contained some facts about KK and her makeup routine.

It takes 90 minutes! NINETY FRICKIN MINUTES.  Ah for the love of god what would you be doing for that length of time?  Now I know Kim K wears an incredible amount of makeup and the amount of highlighter and luminizer she goes through must be carted in by the truckload – but STILL.

Where would she be finding the time to make ten hour sex tapes with Kanye and er not doing much else.  So yeah I suppose she does have the time.

When I got over my shock at this revelation I had a closer look at the product.  Blank Canvas Cosmetics are a Cork based cosmetic company and their products are great!  When I went on their website (which is a bit hicky but don’t let that put you off) to have a goo, I was surprised at the range of brushes and eyeshadow palettes offered.  Now I haven’t tried the palettes (PR please send them to me so I can review!) but I love the small contour brush I was sent – the F14  it’s a small soft brush.

When I was finished I looked EXACTLY like Kim Kardashian. Of course.

But a great Irish brand – I want to see more of their products so we can give them a whirl.

However it made me wonder.  How long does it take you to do your makeup of a morning?  Choose from:

A  0-5 minutes

B  5-10 minutes

C  10-15 minutes

D  15-20 minutes

E  90 minutes DUH

If it helps I’m firmly in the A category.

    B – but i can stretch it out to D if I am going for a night out! (not often) A if I’m late!

  • MiamiMortimer says:

    I’ve got my routine down to 15-20 minutes each morning – but that involves foundation, powder, bronzer, eyebrows, eyeliner, mascara, etc. I don’t pile it on, but I reckon that if I did, it would take me less time, because I wouldn’t have to spend so long blending and applying teeny touch ups of concealer! I don’t know. I don’t feel like it’s excessive… :P

  • Littlesis says:

    In the morning? About 15 mins. At night, half an hour I’d say. Jaysis, 90mins, would love to see what they’re up to for that long!

    Day to day, it probably used to be about 20-25 mins but I’ve gotten a LOT quicker (out of necessity) since I had my baby 6 months ago. I can now do a decent enough face, while entertaining a lively tot and sneakily whisking my precious brushes out of his chubby fingered reach, in about 10-15mins. For a night out though I could still spend 40mins to an hour, if I got the chance, but that’s not skipping any steps and includes the works (primer, brows, liquid liner etc.) I take that long because I enjoy it and find it a fun part of the going out experience.

  • Gracie says:

    It depends on how many times I snooze that morning. So, according to the time I have it goes something like this:

    In 5 minutes I can do foundation, concealer under eyes, mascara and something on the lips. When I have time (more like, wake up on time), I also do my eyes, spot conceal, powder and do highlighter/blush; and that takes 15-20 minutes.

    The longest time I spend on make up was, I think, 45 minutes, which was mad. But I did major contouring and full on smokey eyes. I had the time and I thought why not. I love putting on make up. But 90 minutes, that is way too long.

    I’m definitely an A in the morning-Touch d’eclat-bronzer-blusher-mascara-browzings-out the gap. But for a night out, I could be half an hour if I have the time. I honestly can’t figure out what any girl would be doing for 90 mins, as you say though Aisling, what else would KK be doing!!

  • ZsaZsa says:

    I couldn’t imagine taking that long in the morning.

    It varies for me – depending on whetehr or not I’m running late. In the morning I would say I take about 10 minutes but can do it in about 5 if I’m running late.

    For a night out I probably take a bit longer but that’s usually down to be deciding what colour eyeshadow…. but even then 90 minutes…. there’s not enough hours in the day for that carry on….

  • Kater1986 says:

    Generally in the morning I’m B but it does depend on how late/early I’ve gotten up (to be fair – usually late – what can I say I love my bed!). If I’m really late I could throw foundation, powder, mascara and blush on in 5 mins.

    At night I’d prob be 30 mins or so but that’s only cos I can take my time and slowly pick which things to use!

    God though 90 mins is taking the mick really – clearly she doesn’t have anywhere urgent to be – ugh I’m just jealous, I wish I had my own makeup and hair people!

  • Grá says:

    On a day to day basis I’d be a C but for going out and especially for special occasions I’d be E. But I have perfectist problems, like if my blusher goes a tad wrong I will remove all my make-up and start again. Mom says it’s more stubborness and temper that has me like that :-D If curling my hair goes wrong too I will start all over again and my hair is long and thick and washing and drying alone takes an hour….

    in the mornings B but going out spend longer.

    Really want to get the face brush kit from these guys – this winter is going to be the one where I learn to contour!
