I guess it has been a habit for so long but I never leave the house without makeup or doing my hair. I especailly need to do my hair because I have pillow hair ( hair that is a mess) in the morning when I wake up. I keep my makeup fairly simple but I do use eyeliner and mascara. I fix my hair by setting it with an electric curler set. Just leavr the curlers in for a few minutes and then style it. The electric curlers make it very easy. Or you could use a curling iron but I am not very good with one. I have my makeup routine down to about 7 min to apply to I don't spend a lot of time. I never know who I will run into and people are so gossipy here that they would talk about me if I didn't look myself.
After working for 26 years and putting on my make up everyday I decided to give my skin a break and only put on make up if I am headed out somewhere. I do have a problem with letting my hairdo go as I am not going anywhere and I know I feel better if my hair is freshly washed and blow dried.
I think some of the time it is just the depression that kicks me into the why bother..............
Getting out more now I am getting up earlier and doing my hair daily again except on the weekends.
