Do you keep any makeup in the office for quick or emergency touch-ups? You know, those times when you don’t have time to do your face before getting into the office in the mornings? I read somewhere once that it was only prudent to either carry a set of makeup around in your handbag, or keep some in your office desks so you are never caught out without having done your face.
I always find time to do my face in the mornings. Simple looks for days when I am rushed and more elaborate looks on days when I have time. However, I do carry a little makeup pouch in my handbag. All it contains is my lipstick du jour, because that’s the only thing that disappears throughout the day. I sometimes end up with more than one lipstick in there, because I forget to take out the ones I previously used, but it sometimes allows me to change my lip colour during the day.
Unlike many people, I don’t carry around pressed powder for facial touch-ups. By the end of the day, I do notice that my foundation or powder would have faded somewhat but I usually am heading on home anyway, so I don’t bother touching up. Maybe I am comfortable with some skin showing through or with the less than perfect texture of my skin? I don’t know. I just never got round to carrying powder.
So, do you keep makeup in your office or do you carry around a full face in your handbag?
