I work in a very flat and transparent office where there are no walls or offices. Everyone’s desks are very close to each other, and you can pretty much see what anyone is doing at any time. I’m in finance and often work long hours where I’m eating all three of my meals at work.
Currently, I do not bring or keep any makeup at work since I feel so exposed, and I don’t want people to see me putting on makeup at my desk. However, I’ve been considering bringing a small makeup bag to the office and taking that to the bathroom to do some quick touch ups. I hardly ever see other women putting on any makeup in the bathroom, but I feel like that is a pretty acceptable thing to do, right? I also have a small nail file that I keep at my desk and sometimes will file a nail if I get a break.
Do you think it’s ok to file my nails and/or do makeup touch ups at my desk where everyone can see, or should I also do this in the bathroom? For makeup, I’m thinking I would want to bring in my YSL Touche Eclat concealer, a Nars blush highlighter, and possibly an eyeliner and lipstick.
Does anyone do touch ups at work? Where do you do your touch ups, and what makeup are you bringing?
