I'm not sure I've ever thought about what I do, but now that I am ...

It appears to vary by the construction of the skirt -- softness/flexibility vs. stiffness of material, straightness vs. fullness in the line of skirt, mid-calf vs. ankle length, etc.

Most of my longer skirts are full, flowing skirts of slightly less than ankle length. For those, I believe I do a sort of scooping motion, bringing it up and around, so all that fabric is gathered up in front. I do have one or two dresses/skirts that are of stiffer material or cut in a more form-fitting line, and those seem to require something closer to the second option you've described.
