If memory of pre-March 2020 serves, I used to touch up my lip color. Could never be bothered to fix anything else other than blotting away sweat. šŸ˜…

My eyeshadow, if I wear it, because my hooded eyes means that everything but the inner corner tends to wear away after 4ish hours. The center of my lipstick, especially if I’ve been eating. Sometimes powder on my nasolabial folds to help tone them done.

Only lips šŸ™‚
When I travel for work we generally start really early and head out for the entire day. When we get back to the hotel we have time to rest before dinners–then I’ll often add more blush, powder and more eyeshadow.

If I get too oily during the day, I might use a blotting paper to reduce the shine. Except re-applying lipstick (oh… those pee-pandemic times…), I don’t retouch or re-apply makeup otherwise. I prefer to use primers, foundation, concealer and powders that make the makeup long lasting from the start.

Usually just lip products or tamp down oil on my T-zone. Sometimes though, I need to bring along my eye pencil and inner corner shadow due to my allergies causing my eyes to tear up badly. Which is a pain in the butt!

Lip color, a little powder if needed. Check concealer in under eye area – add a dot if neccessary. Check eyeshadow for any creasing and fix if needed. If it’s a super long day, I might pack a small sponge with tiny container of foundation for touch ups. Sounds like a lot, but it’s really 2 minutes. I deserve at least that much!!

I still blot my face, fix my lip, and get rid of any schmutz that might accumulate around my eyes.

When I’m wearing lipstick, I touch it up and occasionally touch up my concealer. When I’m wearing a mask (which, since I’m fully vaccinated, I now have more control over!*), once I get home for the night I touch up the concealer and foundation around my nose and mouth and add my lip and cheek products.
*Disclaimer: I’ve been fully vaccinated since early April. With the new CDC guidance and the upcoming reopening of my state (Ohio), I continue to wear a mask in crowded indoor areas and in any businesses that still require them, but I’m starting to phase them out in areas where a) I’m allowed to and b) I feel comfortable doing so.

My hair! It has a crazy texture and a life of its own so I’m forever coaxing it into something presentable. Makeup wise it would be lip color and maybe some blotting or powder but nothing else.
