Back into the swing of things

Hello!

As the days have gotten chillier, I’ve found myself spending most of my morning dreading leaving the warm bed to get ready for work, and far less time worrying about skincare, much less putting any makeup on.

I’d gone around a month without wearing a lick of makeup and it reminded me just how much of a pain wearing a full face of makeup can be; you tend to tune it out after a while and you don’t realize all the little habits you adopt to avoid smudging or smearing your work.

My biggest problem is if I go too long between using eyeliner/mascara and then I happen to wear it one day, I will find myself halfway through rubbing an eye and think Oh crap, I have raccoon eyes now. Or second to that, I frequently brace my elbow on my desk and rest my face in my hand when I stop to think while typing, so if I’m not careful, I will end up with half my face smeared off.
I have also accidentally rested my head on my bf’s shoulder at the wrong time and gotten orange makeup stains on his poor white shirt…



My temporary solution is the selection of makeup above, I don’t have to worry about washing it off at the end of the day with the exception of the highlighter, and they all have light natural finishes that won’t show smears!
