I don’t usually wear make-up. Occasionally, very occasionally, I will wear a little mascara.
Today at work, a number of area executives were having head-shots and group shots done. I was joking around with a couple of the ladies from the marketing department about getting a head shot done so I could put it on LinkedIn. The head of marketing told me to have it done. I told her I was just joking. She said, no, they would do a head shot for me!
So, I went to “hair and make-up,” set up here at the office, and a make-up professional put make-up on me and re-did my hair a little.
To me, I looked scary.
Then I had my picture taken. (I seriously need to lose weight.) There was one picture that wasn’t too bad and they will crop it and touch it up and I will have a professional head shot!
So, now, I sit at my desk, as the receptionist, all made up. Some of the ladies here have told me that I look really good. (Does that mean I look bad the rest of the time?)
I don’t know if any of the guys even noticed. Well, I think the one who used to wink at me noticed I looked different. But I have no idea what he thinks.
Anyhow, it’s different sitting here with make-up on. I don’t know if I would want to wear make-up all the time. What I’d really like – and who wouldn’t! – is to look great without make-up!
I wonder if it makes any difference to a man if a woman looks one way during the day/evening and then looks different at night without the make-up.
