Pre-social distancing, I had a pretty speedy makeup routine that consisted of BB cream, blush, highlighter, an eyebrow gel/pencil combo and mascara. But now that my childhood bedroom has become my office, even a touch of makeup feels excessive. Why waste the product when no one (aside from my parents) is actually going to see it?
Turns out the video quality on Zoom and Google Hangouts is much clearer than I expected, and the lime green walls of my room make me look exhausted (even though the nine hours of sleep I’m getting per night would say otherwise). So, before my last video meeting I dug into my makeup for two of my desert island beauty products: brow gel to fluff my naturally thick brows and an eyelash curler to make me look more awake. Once I used both, I felt 100 times more presentable and it took all of ten seconds.
