When it comes to looking your best for the job, we get it. Not everyone’s level of glam is going to be the same. Some out of preference, others, necessity.
If you’re a fitness coach, you probably aren’t going to be spending the time to apply a smokey-eye, only to have it melt off along with the sweat rolling down your face. Same as if you were, say, an astronaut. You don’t have time for that! That doesn’t mean that you need to abandon all beauty efforts, you just need to make some adjustments.
Customizing your beauty to your workplace
So how do you create a makeup look that makes you feel alive, but doesn’t take a million years and a day to apply? That was exactly the concern of retired NASA astronaut, Rhea Seddon, when she would be on her missions in space. According to her website, she was worried about blending into the background in photos, so at the very least she wanted to look awake and fresh.
If there would be pictures taken of me from space, I didn’t want to fade into the background, so I requested some basic items…It was interesting to me that that I wasn’t the sole space traveler whose in-flight pictures showed a bit of lipstick and blush.
It’s not a crime to want to look put together, is it? Absolutely not! A fresh look isn’t meant to be a huge time commitment; you’re looking to get out the door in a speedy fashion, not host your own glam camp. So if you need to scale down on the number of steps in your routine, what’s the best way to do that? Hint: Have a five-minute go-to makeup look.
The key to making good time is to have a go-to look you know is a winner. Every time. This look is comprised of a few beauty staples that provide you with the lift and life you need, without the excessive time commitment of application.
Skip the full-coverage foundation and rely on a light, buildable foundation like Replenix Ultimatte Perfection SPF 50 Plus to give you a smooth, even complexion. If you need a little extra coverage, try a correcting CC cream like Osmosis Colour CC Cream to help conceal redness and other discoloration with a buildable formula!
Tip: Forget about the foundation brush, you have ten of them on your hands!
