Time Savers: Apply A Year’s Worth Of Makeup At Once

There’s nothing worse than waking up in the morning, late as usual, looking in the mirror, and realizing that — due to your face — it’s going to be at least another 45 to 100 minutes before you can leave your house. “I can’t believe how much stuff I have to put on my face right now and how long it will take,” you think, very nearly in tears. “If only I could have done this all in advance, then I wouldn’t be in this jam. I’m not usually the type of person who puts things off until the last second, but I feel like with this specific thing there’s no real way of getting around that. Like with eating or dressing yourself or showering. You just have to do it regularly and you can’t really get around it — there isn’t a solution.”

You never seem to apply any makeup,” people always ask. “Oh, I don’t know,” I respond with a wink. “Why is your eye sticking together like that?” they ask. “Can you call a doctor?” I reply. (Via io9.)
