I work in a technical role for which I am based in an office. To be honest, I don’t even know what my job title is. Is that bad? Rather than the Dolly Parton 9 – 5 more like 9am – 5.30pm and sometimes till 6pm, Monday to Fridays. I do get lazy and literally roll out of bed 5 minutes before I have to leave. Giving me enough time to get ready for work where 90% of the time, I only wear concealer to conceal those dark under eye circles.
At work, I have a little beauty section which consists of my main must haves for work. The main two items are lip balm and hand cream. Any spare lip balm I have lying around and doesn’t require using my fingers in such as Burt’s Bees Lip Balm is a requirement. Burt’s Bees isn’t the best I’ve used but I might as well use it up as it is very efficient! Secondly is hand cream. It gets really cold because of the air conditioner that’s on and auto adjusts according to the current temperature, which can leave me with dry hands. I like to use a little bit of Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream Blackcurrant Leaf every time I wash my hands and whenever my hands start feeling dry. A cream that is absorbed quickly into the skin is a must.
I also have an eyeliner and eyelash glue. For the 10% I have makeup on (mainly basic, simple makeup), eyeliner and eyelash glue are also considered important and are there whenever I need a quick fix. Bringing the spares with you is a good way of using up forgotten makeup without resulting to spend money, meaning you can clear out space to buy new products. Good idea yes?
