Get NAKED! - At work.

The alarm goes off at 7:45am and its like the bell tolling the arrival of kingdom come - "Its Monday morning Tanya. Rise and shine and get ready for a disastrous day at work!" Be there by 8:45am (read: 8:59am!), plaster a big smile on your face (which generally comes after my second cup of tea) and get ready to meet the day (read: survive!). So what do I do for a living?

I'm a banker.

I can hear the crickets creaking out here in the blogger land.

And it takes a lot out of me to bother with the dressing up process in the morning. I'd much rather take those 10 extra minutes and hit the snooze button. But of late, I've started making an effort. I'm wearing my contacts and doing more than just a customary lipstick. Here's how I got NAKED for work today.

Things I used - and I just can't seem to be able to flip the picture!!!!!
 I decided to put in the effort and make my look worth it. I grabbed my Primer Potion in Sin, the UDNP, 24/7 Eye pencil in Zero and They're Real mascara from Benefit.

 We will ignore all skin issues and morning face and will bring the focus straight to priming the eyelid with the primer.

Next, I laid down SIN from the palette all over the eyelid.

Follow that with applying a fine line of GUNMETAL and blending upwards.

After sharpening up my eye pencil, I drew a fine line right along the lash line, just to add a hint of thickness to the lashes.

... And to set it, I used CREEP with a small angled brush and blended it out a little.

I put on a coat of They're Real and ran out the door.

And yes, I did run out the door. I applied the rest of my face on the drive over. A bronzer to the hollows of the cheek and Luscious liquid lipstick in Celebrity... And proceeded to spend the next 10 hours in pure hell!

10 hours later...

 ... And after a 2 hour butt busting session at the gym. 
FYI, Shakir The Trainer - my hamstrings will hate you tomorrow.

Any out out there got any tips for Adult Onset Acne? I can't seem to get rid of mine!
