It is always fun to work on Halloween (actually, almost any day that precedes a celebration); people usually have fun.
Because my job is in sales, I always have to be conscious of the impression I might make on a customer, so I really have to avoid wearing costumes that might offend people, or that might jeopardize a sale. (My I & O Psychology kicking in again!). It is true that what impression I make on a customer is bound to affect the outcome of a possible purchase transaction. It will create either positive or negative opportunity. Hence, you see a conservative costume that is not likely to offend many, but immediately gives the customer and co-workers a "let's have fun" attitude.
In conversation today regarding the importance of cosmetics and hair care in fashion styling, a significant point was raised by my co-worker. She mentioned how important is was to keep the basic foundation simple enough that we would (an could) follow it!. Although I have posted the few basic routines I follow myself, I thought important to stress again how important it is to never go to bed without thoroughly cleansing your face, and to maintain your haircut. I might add the basic cosmetic routine I perform EVERY morning upon awakening, before breakfast, before getting dressed, etc. I rinse and moisturize my face, comb my hair, apply basic eyebrow pencil, add a touch of mascara, brush my teeth, and add lip color. If I do these things the very first activities of the morning, I am certain to be presentable in any situation. Anyone can perform their own routine that covers those basics in under ten minutes. Small steps, but vital to a sense of personal order and control of the stylish woman.
I hope your Halloween is/was fun; if you are in California, remember to set your clock back an hour! It is now time to plan our styling for the busy, and sometimes dressy holiday season............Happy Styling...........Geneva
