    You think your make-up takes a long time? Spare a thought for Kim Kardashian (well, her glam squad) who gave us all a glimpse of her daily routine via a 45 second video on her Kim Kardashian West website and YouTube channel.

    In the post she talks about how long it takes to do her everyday make-up routine and how she spends her time while her glam squad do their thing.

    ‘I thought you guys might like a little peek into my daily glam routine,’ Kim writes in the post. ‘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.’

    Two hours to complete! Every. Single. Day.

    To be fair, she just has to sit there while make-up artist Ariel Tejada and hairstylist Justine Marjan go to work, but still, 120 minutes is a loooong time.

    This isn’t the first time her daily beauty routine has been revealed.

    Writing for Racked last year, make-up artist, Arabella Sicardi, divulged that it takes over 40 products (excluding skincare) and over 50 steps for Kim to complete her daily make-up routine – a fact she found out about when she attended a contouring masterclass with Kim’s long-time friend and make-up artist, Mario Dedivanovic.

    Sicardi also revealed that it costs over $1,200 in products to get Kim Kardashian’s look. Ouch!

    On top of that, Kim spends over $1,700 in skincare products. According to Into The Gloss, she uses around eight products during her skincare routine, including things like By Terry Pureté de Rose Refreshing Cleansing Gel, £36, Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The Rich Cream, £295 and Natura Bissē—the C+C Vitamin Cream, £93 to keep her skin clear, hydrated and glowing.

    So the next time you get antsy about spending 10 minutes perfecting your eyeliner flick or guilty about buying an Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit, rest in the knowledge that Kim Kardashian is spending more time and cash on her look, daily.
