I didn't really plan it this way.

It started when I snoozed through my alarm one too many times and was in a hurry. I showered as quickly as possible, took an extra five minutes just to blow dry and style my bangs, threw my makeup into my purse and ran off to work.

I fully intended to put my makeup on once I got to work. Because the only reason I have to be here by 8 is to turn the phones onto day-answer. If the boss happens to call then, and it's still on night-answer, he assumes our phones are broken and kind of goes a little crazy. So, even though he only calls that early every once in a while, I like to try and avoid the whole situation. Plus, I just have to get here, turn on the phones, and then I can take some time to throw on a little foundation, eyeshadow and mascara.

The view in my purse.

That's my beauty routine. For a long time, it was just mascara. And, for the most part, I still feel that's all I really "need." It brightens my eyes a little bit, and everything else is fine. The foundation and eyeshadow are just my "bonuses." I like being low maintenance. (In fact, throughout high school I was the ultimate in low maintenance. No makeup. At all. I got enough of it doing community theater.)
