I always look worst after a day at work. Ugh.

Wish I could answer how to do it, but I’m not one of those girls. πŸ™‚

HAHAHA – Dana – alligator wrestling! I’m the same way. I use my after work alone time before my husband gets home to not only straighten the kitchen, but fix my face! Even if it’s just a quick face wash with an olay wipe thing and to re-curl my eyelashes. Desk sittin’ really messes with me. I can look good all day on a Saturday πŸ˜‰

I am right there with you – especially on the days where I need to go attend a c-section (I am an NICU nurse, and we go to the higher-risk deliveries and c-sections) – nothing messes with your hair and makeup more than a scrub cap and a face mask!

I totally get the no makeup thing…I sit at my desk and put my hands all over my face like this guy:

LOL. I sit at a desk and I STILL look “not fresh” after 8 hours. Sometimes i bring makeup with me to work and touch up or I look like i had a romp in the back on my lunch break. Even though I wear waterproof mascara and liner. The liner still smudges off. Boo. Hair’s not a problem for me–it’s up in a bun today =]. And i keep a plethora of pins in my desk and slide them in throughout the day.

I feel ya on that! If I spend any amount of time sitting inside, my styling goes kaput. I look better after gardening for two hours with no makeup on than I do when I get dolled up and sit in AC for six hours. Go figure.

I know exactly what you mean! I would always go to work feelin fancy and confident and then I would get home and look in the mirror and think “holy cow what happened?!” I’ve tried to buy make-up that’s supposed to last all day, but i’ve yet to find anything that actually does πŸ™

I totally feel ya there. The only saving grace is that I go to the gym during lunch so I get a do-over shower and I get to do my hair again.

Also, if you wrestle and alligator and all that happens is your hair gets messed up, it’s been a good day. πŸ™‚

I work at a desk too.  I looked pretty good this morning I thought.  I just had a mandatory staff meeting and was asked if I was sick.  πŸ™ I’m not.

I thought I was the only one! This never seems to happen to anyone around me. Maybe that means no one notices when it happens to us? I can dream, right?

I start the day looking like a mess.  That way I get a few extra minutes of sleep and the benefit of lowered expectations.
