We’ve all had this happen. We’re lazing around the house, reading, doing homework or whatever, and a call comes in. An old friend--or more urgently, a new guy--is headed over. In 5 minutes. What to do to rejuvenate ourselves?
Well, I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but the following is a list I’ve come up with to help save the day (and your confidence):
--Whatever you’re wearing, upgrade it. Put on a belt, grab a long, knitted scarf, slip on good shoes, maybe heels or boots.
--Brush and spray your hair.
--Remove any smudged eye make-up with cleanser on cotton (careful not to remove foundation or cheek color) and reapply.
--Add some lipstick or gloss.
--Take a long look at yourself in the mirror and breathe. Don’t forget--beauty starts from within.
Okay, what did I miss? What tips can you add to save us from our next bouts of 5 Minute Madness?
