Do You Get Ready to Go Out at Work?

Some women feel the need to freshen up before leaving for happy hour or dinner out and that can mean more than applying fresh lip gloss.

Does the ladies' room sink turn into your personal vanity when you have plans right after work?

I have a couple of times but I usually just freshen up in the car

If I am going some where right after work, then yeah, but I have to bring a change of clothes also, since my work uniform is hideous! But, I usually just go home and freshen up there really fast.

I'll freshen up a bit, put on some gloss and maybe chew a stick of gum. Helps me wind down from work-mode to going out-mode.

I dont do this, no... and it doesnt bother me when others do it. HOWEVER there is one girl who shares our bathroom (I get protective, theres only 4 of us on the entire floor) who consistently spends 10-15 minutes about 3-4 times a day in the bathroom primping and preening. She's not even that attractive! Its not like she straightens her hair or is putting on makeup. Just fluffing about. THAT drives me mad cause all I want to do is my business and get outta there.

Haha I am just like skigurl! We have this accesible bathroom and it has a little shelf that I put my makeup on. Unfortunately once my makeup brush fell in the sink and it has a sensor so it got all wet :( No worries though. I usually get dressed up and when I come back to my desk, I love how people are like "wow you look great!" I have no reason to get dressed up before 8am for here.

thankfully we have a large wheelchair accessible washroom withint he normal washroom that has a sink, counter, and mirror in it so absolutely i touch up my makeup whenever i'm going anywhere other than home after work...i tried to touch up my hair once with my straightener but couldn't find a convenient plug that wasn't in a public area...and i've changed before, ie:into ski gear when i was heading to the hill for night skiing and into a short skirt on a hot summer evening i do it all very discretely though and then roll out the back door

Of course! I'd rather do it in the bathroom than at my desk. I don't wear make-up to work, but I definitely do when I go out. Also, I commute about 45 minutes by train to get to my office, and usually if I'm going out after work it's somewhere near my office, so it's silly for me to go home and freshen up there and then come all the way back!

yep i'l touch up and also change a lot of times if i am going out with non-work people. a lot of my friends go out near my work and it would be silly and too far for me to go home and come back

I'm always touching up (well, almost 100% of the time) whether I go to work or not, and I use both the ladies room or my car for it.

If I am going out RIGHT AFTER work then yes. I bring my make-up in my purse all the time, and I don't wear make-up to if I got out to a bar for a drink, I get prettied up!
