I was reading an article about Lola Rykiel in April’s Harper’s Bazaar, and couldn’t help but share this quote:
‘I don’t put on makeup in the morning, only at night when I go out. In the day I feel like it’s cheating.”
I was out to dinner with my friend Julie the other night and we were both talking about how we rushed home from our respective meet-ups to change before we met up for dinner. She mentioned she even put on mascara for the occasion. I countered with the fact that I went over the top by putting on eye liner. (This means I used light pencil eyeliner then smudged it so it’s basically invisible, but I still feel like I’m uber-glam for the evening.)
While I will never be found makeup free at the office, I feel like I can relate to Lola’s feeling towards makeup. For me less is more, less is easier, less is better. I feel best with mascara, something on my cheeks and rosy lips. My current five minute routine is below:
Sunscreen – this is a WHOLE other topic.
My bold lips.
On the weekends I wear even less makeup. It’s mascara and some lip gloss, hair up and hat on.
How much makeup do you wear? Could you ever go a day without wearing makeup like Lola?
**Just found out they have one with SPF – ordering in bulk now.
