put cream blusher and moisturiser on at lunchtime?

A brisk walk at lunchtime is also good.
Drink more water maybe?

I think I need a paper bag by 4.30 most days.

MusterMix Wed 14-Oct-09 17:41:39

"i looked ok wheni left"

Lippy, a bit of Touche Wotsit (I KNOW you hate it) Pressed powder is my latest new best friend.

CybilLiberty Wed 14-Oct-09 17:44:05

I hasten to ad I don't do this each day, just if I'm orf somewhere else.

Not sure but would love to know.

On a business trip with a friend/colleague recently.

In the morning she said to me "oh, you look nice, I've never seen you with so much make-up on before".

I was wearing the usual, but this was 8am BEFORE any appts/classes etc.

The cheapy version rip off of Benetint is very good, it stains your cheeks and lips so stays on.

10 min power nap at desk

Bronzing powder, quick swoosh over reduces the greeny exhausted-ness.

MrsBadger Wed 14-Oct-09 18:15:55

yy bronzer or blusher

I do it in the car before nursery pickup to stop people saying 'oh are you ill?'

Refresh? I hardly have time to BREATH as we have just half an hour for lunch. Today I just didn't bother with make-up at all - I don't advocate this at all.

MusterMix Wed 14-Oct-09 19:04:38

lol i have all this kit in my bag - exp the old trusty no 17 grey eyeliner

but i forget to reapply.
SOME days ( when i have year nine) i realie i havent looked at myself all day and look ever so slightly demented.

HeadFairy Wed 14-Oct-09 19:09:03

I refresh... quick swish of loose powder, a swish of blusher, dab of lippie and fluff up my hair. I put my make up on at about 9am before I leave for work and I don't get home until 11pm, so refreshing is essential. I would most certainly look a zombie without it!

MusterMix Wed 14-Oct-09 19:10:09

i am invigorated.
I will be fab.

hobbgoblin Wed 14-Oct-09 19:12:14

Bit of Benefit LemonAid and some RushHour on cheeks and lips does for me. v quick, little kit required

badgermonkey Wed 14-Oct-09 19:29:50

Urban Decay Primer Potion keeps your eye make-up on ALL DAY. Today I put mine on at 7, taught all day, went for a 5-mile run when I got back and had to scrub it off in the shower. My eyeshadow was as bright as it was when I put it on. Genius.

MusterMix Wed 14-Oct-09 20:06:37

no way?

and grr at 5 mile run

PumpkinsCantDanceTheTango Wed 14-Oct-09 20:08:18

what is an orgasm stick? Is that code for a dildo?! hmm wink

MusterMix Wed 14-Oct-09 20:08:47

yes i ram that on every day

castille Wed 14-Oct-09 20:09:01

4.30 is good going in my book. I look rough within an hour of leaving the house some days.

Maybe my bathroom mirror is just supremely flattering and I actually never look ok.

janeite Wed 14-Oct-09 20:10:40

Yes - Primer Potion is magic, especially in combination with Mac or Urban Decay eyeshadows - but it even makes cheap crap last a long while.

Which is best, Orgasm or Benetint? What is Rush Hour?

saltyseadog Wed 14-Oct-09 20:12:04

I swear by Nars multiple in orgasm - it is the best bit of make-up I have ever owned.
Slick of carmex on the lips, touch up under eyes with No 7 lightening concealer and a dusting of transclucent powder and I'm good to go.

MusterMix Wed 14-Oct-09 20:12:57
