I do a significant amount of work in public spaces, hauling my laptop out and about to catch up on emails, write blog posts, and such. It’s fantasic people watching, by the way.
Earlier this week I was sitting in one of my favorite haunts and sitting near me was a gal who took out her makeup bag and mirror and starting doing the whole shebang – foundation, shadow, and so on. I’m not a fan of public grooming besides a quick powder or lip touch up to begin with, so when she pulled out a pair of false lashes and threw ‘em on (while checking her iPhone at the same time), I was appalled. And yet, slightly impressed at the same time.
While I firmly believe false lash application needs to be kept in the privacy of one’s boudoir (or car, even), I was amazed she got it all done in a flash. That takes skills.
So, what do you think? Are you a fan of primping in public?
