Each morning I have the same routine from my shower to my hair to my makeup. I’m not a big makeup person… a little eyeliner, a little mascara, and some lip gloss.
When the pandemic hit, I skipped much of the makeup routine; however, whenever I would go onto a meet, I would give my lips a little swipe of lip gloss.
My colleagues sent texts ribbing me on the application prior to meetings… “Really with the lip gloss?”
Yes, really. I like lip gloss. I feel like it brightens my face. Leave the lip gloss out of it.
So this fall as we returned to work, I resumed my regular morning routine including applying the lip gloss. Now, I REALLY did not need the lip gloss. It would be covered up by the mask. But each morning, I still gave my lips a swipe.
Tuesday as I prepared for my afternoon conferences, I pulled a tube out of my desk. (I have tubes everywhere. I have purchased my shade in bulk. I will never be without if they cancel my color- that’s another story for another day, REVLON!) I gave my lips a swipe.
Wednesday… same drill. I was going to be maskless… this was a time for lip gloss.
Thursday… my teaching partner, Karen, said she needed to take my picture for the yearbook.
“Hang on… I need a swipe of lip gloss.” She laughed.
“Of course you do!” She may have been one of said texters above!
So just because we must cover our mouths for most of the day, don’t neglect the lip gloss. It will make you happy (and your lips will thank you)!
