while i've been making an effort to keep a tube of lipstick on me, if i'm running out the door with breakfast in hand, i don't put any on until i've finished eating my bagelcrumpetenglishmuffin. i don't carry any other supplies with me, other than a small tube of aquaphor, so if i want any perfume on, or dirt (it's the name of the product) in my hair, i had better remember to use it before i leave the house. typically i'm done doing whatever i'm going to do by the time i'm fully dressed and am ready to make breakfast - with the exception of the lipstick. that is the last thing to go on just before or soon after i walk out the door. or while waiting on a corner for the light to change. but i have been trying to remember to do it before i interact with people.
first thing after getting up? just before you leave? in the elevator/car? at the street corner? on the train? at your desk? sometime around lunch?
at what point are you done getting ready for the day?
