Cubicle Makeup.

Or the frustration of wearing eyeshadows with them not being noticed. 

At one point or another, you’ve heard about it or noticed that every brand’s got that one palette with safe colors. 
Cubicle makeup. Sometimes called “professional setting makeup, “office makeup,” “work-safe,” or something along that line. There’s always a new term used to describe the same thing. And Shapeskeare is an underrated genius. 

They are mainly neutral – shades of brown and black, matte or shimmer but never bold or daring like a rainbow. Unless the workplace is that chillax, the most you can pull off is either smoky or no-makeup. 

It can be frustrating. Even more so if you like wearing eyeshadows and you wanna showcase your handiwork because:

A. You work in a cubicle. Your computer is your main audience. 

B. The eyeshadow blends right into your skin. Which is usually the case for me. 

C. You wanna be colorful but you can’t. Unless you don’t mind washing your whole face and going the whole nine yards of making your face. Again.

My workplace puts me in a cubicle corner. That’s it. I have to spin my chair around to interact with my coworkers and when I do step outside to walk off the hours that I have to spend sitting down, I wear my sunglasses. Which hide my handiwork. 

I don’t know if that’s for better or worse. Considering my handiwork from Day 3 with the Vice 4, it’s probably better that way. But shit, it would be nice to wear makeup that doesn’t fade into my skin color.
