How Long Does It Take Kim Kardashian West to Get Ready in the Morning?
Let’s be real: getting ready in the morning is a hassle and sometimes, it takes many different steps for us to look even semi presentable.
While some people’s morning routines can be very time consuming, no one’s is as specific and lengthy as Kim Kardashian West’s.
The reality star might have mastered the art of looking flawless everyday of the week, but looking as glamorous as she does everyday is definitely a job in itself.
Getting ready in the morning is a process for Kardashian
While many people usually spend a few minutes to an hour getting ready in the morning, Kardashian West needs a lot more time than that in order to take on her day.
Looking flawless is basically the reality star’s job so keeping up her appearance takes time and we mean a lot of it.
Back in 2016, Kardashian gave fans a detailed look into her everyday glam sessions.
From putting on a full face of makeup to making sure her hair looks perfect, Kardashian’s morning routine is definitely a process and the amount of time it actually takes might (or might not) surprise you.
During Kardashian’s “My Daily Makeup Routine” video uploaded to her website, she reveals that glam sessions alone takes a full two hours.
“I thought you guys might like a little peek into my daily glam routine. I do makeup and hair for about two hours every day! It’s actually a great time for me to catch up on work emails, take some calls, and see what you guys are up to on social media,” she wrote on her website.
Now if you’re asking yourself, “It really takes Kim two hours to do her hair and makeup?” we’re here to let you know that she does not do it all by herself.
Kardashian’s incredible looks are all thanks to her glam squad, which includes her longtime makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, and her hair stylist, Chris Appleton.
Sometime she can get ready in just a few minutes
While we are used to seeing Kardashian all done up whenever she’s out in public, her morning glam sessions actually aren’t a daily thing.
There are some days when the reality star will just resort to a simple makeup and hair look that only takes her a few short minutes to do.
Kardashian previously revealed that there are some days when she doesn’t have her glam squad and has to get ready all on her own, which isn’t as long of a process.
“If we have a meeting in the morning, then we don’t have time for hair and makeup, and we get ready ourselves. We do whatever we have time for. It’s not like hair and makeup is an everyday thing,” she detailed in her 2015 book, Selfish. “It takes me about 15 minutes to do my own makeup, and if I have my hair done from the day before, I can get ready quickly on my own. I don’t wash my hair a whole lot—every three or four days. When I get it done and blow-dried, that lasts for a while.”
Getting ready isn’t the only things that takes up time in the mornings
Although getting glam can take up a lot of Kardashian’s time, this is actually the last thing she tackles before heading out of the door everyday.
Before she even sits down in her makeup chair, the reality star has a morning full of tasks she needs to get done first.
After waking up at 5:45 a.m., which is what she does every single morning, Kardashian starts her day with an early morning workout.
The reality star uses this time to get her blood pumping and finds this to be a great start to her morning.
Following her workout, the KKW mogul then tends to her four young children, making sure they eat, bathe, and get dressed before taking them to school.
Once Kardashian West completed all of her morning tasks, she’s ready to get glam then head out of the door and take on a long day of work.
