Me. I’m also an RN. Always shower at night. In the morning I throw on sweats (change into sur scrubs at the hospital), put hair in ponytail and brush my teeth. On the rare occasion I might wear makeup, but that’s rare.

I have short hair (pixie cut) which is very low maintenance, so most mornings I just kind of push it around until it looks decent, throw on clothes, and go! I rarely wear makeup anymore although I used to every day in high school/early college, but I had to wake up at 6 every day for school last semester and I love sleep WAY too much to wake up even 20 minutes earlier to do makeup!

MrsC_2Bee:  Yep. I coach youth ski racing. I put on a helmet and goggles, once I’m at work. If I haven’t showered for a few days, no one can smell me (not that I smell, I wear deodorant and wash my clothes!). If I brush my teeth, or hair, that is like WHOA getting fancy. I do put on sunscreen in the spring but that is about it.

I wish. I wake up at 6 or 7 to be at work at 9 or so and I don’t even shower til evening. And by at work, I mean the home office, so pretty short commute haha. I take my sweet sweet time getting ready for the day. I spend almost an hour just to watch the news and drink coffee.

I def did this in grade school, high school and college but not in the working world. I teach college so I want to look nice for the students, so I’m respected and because I’m new (don’t want to look crappy to rest of department staff and dept chair) BUT my first class is mid morning so I have plenty of time to get ready.

Prior to that I worked in advertising and had clients…so I tried to look nice and put on makeup…however if I was not meeting with a client I may skip the makeup, however sometimes things come up last minute. Towards the end I hated it there so I left the house with wet hair and no make up.

By The Way – my makeup routine is all of 5-6 minutes…it’s moisturizer, primer, foundation, powder, eyeshadow and mascara. A gf used to say I’m not wearing make up. I can certainly tell the difference when I am and when I’m not but it is a very light/natural look for sure. I’m on break now for the 3rd week and have worn makeup maybe 4 times (for special occasions) but I have friends that say I’m lucky I cna go without makeup.

My husbands routine is longer than mine. He is an RN and wakes up at 4:30 every morning to take it slow, he eats, works out, takes care of the dogs, and slowly gets ready for the day. He works roughly 13 hours a day. I wake up 30 mins before work. I get dresssed, brush teeth, do hair/make-up. I don’t really need to wear make up it just enhances my features. I’m more of a go go type of person anyway so going slowly isn’t really my thing normally. I’m very to the point.

MrsC_2Bee:  yes and it shows! Lol 

I work overnight at a reference laboratory and it doesn’t matter what you wear. Most people come to work in pajamas, yoga pants, and tee shirts. My hair always goes up into a ponytail because I can’t have it down when I’m reading on the microscope because it bugs me. Makeup normally doesn’t last anyway, because you are rubbing your eyes from staring at the micrscope or sweat it off becauae it so hot from all of the machines.

I literally get up ten minutes before i need to leave for work. I put together my lunch, change, brush my hair and wash my face and then I leave. I brush my teeth at work because I eat in the car. Sometimes now when I have other things to do and I need to get ready and look nice, i just cringe at the though that some people do this everyday.

I’m a nanny. Wake up, throw clothes on, bathroom, brush teeth, gone. I always leave early to account for traffic, stuck for a passing train, so I brush hair on way. Eat when I get to work!

I am also a nurse who works 12-hour shifts (more realistically, almost 13 hours when you add in taking and giving report). My current job is only about 20 minutes away, but my last job was an hour away. My routine has been the same with both jobs:

For my first night back to work, I shower right before work. Brush/floss, blowdry/straighten my hair, do my makeup.

When I get home from work, I shower and go straight to bed. Wake up, straighten my hair, brush/floss, do my makeup, have some dinner and watch TV for maybe an hour, then leave for work again. Repeat.

I totally understand what it’s like to be tired, but my hair has to be neat and I have to have my makeup on. I don’t wear much makeup, but I like to look presentable. I will probably get flamed for this, and yes, it’s all about appearances. But if I were a patient, I would think a nurse who can’t take care of his/herself, is probably not in any shape to take care of me.

MrsC_2Bee:  As long as you look presentable and professional, I think it’s fine. It just brought to mind some co-workers I’ve had in the past. There was one woman who literally never brushed her hair (she told everyone this), and just left it in a tangled mess of a ponytail all the time. Everything about her looked un-groomed, and her “white” shoes were completely gray with filth. In her case, it was a very accurate reflection of how she took care of her patients. So, that is where I’m coming from with my previous comment.

If you can get away with no makeup and not doing your hair, but still look like a professional, I think that’s great. In my case, I just personally look like a bum if I don’t do my hair and makeup.

My commute is about 45 minutes, but I still get up an hour before I have to leave in order to shower, put make up on, do my hair, make lunch, feed the cat and then get out the door.

I feel like such a slob if I don’t put makeup on and a shower helps to wake me up.

I work 5am-1:30pm. I shower the night before. Generally roll out of bed at 4…get dressed, brush teeth, and put hair up. Then leave at 4:20. There’s a set uniform so it’s not really like I have many options lol.
