Desperation Make-up: What I learned about the Hail Mary Pass at Notre Dame and applied to my Face
When I lived in Chicago, I used to go to college football games — from University of Wisconsin to Northwestern to Notre Dame. It was at Notre Dame that I learned about the Hail Mary Pass (and the Touch-down Jesus!) These terms are not meant to be politically incorrect religious remarks at all. The idea of the Hail Mary pass is (sort-of) to “go for it”.
What do football and make-up have in common? I always keep a “Hail Mary” make-up kit in my car for emergencies. I recommend it! So, Gals, I think we all need a “Hail Mary” make-up kit in our cars for those instances when we find ourselves — for some unknown reason — bare-faced while on the way to meet the public.
[Note: This would never happen to the “Triangle” organizing style who’s totally organized, but for the rest of the organizing personalities, it’s a real possibility.]
Let’s say you have a fab’ chance to “go for it” and don’t have time to go home and do full hair and make-up.
Keep in your glove box: Small all-in-one eye shadow kit plus deep shade of lipstick (expect the lipstick to melt):
- Use for eye liner – eye shadow – eyebrows
- Lipstick for lips – tiny bit on your cheeks for color
Never apply make-up while driving. Be safe; pull into the parking lot, apply make-up, take a deep breath and “go for it”.
