Girls, How Do You Look When You Walk Into Your Kitchen?

post #1 of 71
Thread Starter 

Ok Gals, this one is for us.

 

I don’t cook in a HOT professional kitchen, but my little space gets pretty warm.

Most days, I do my hair and makeup.  When I get into cooking all day long, it can be a bit sweaty. 

I’ll tie my hair back (which I always do when I’m in the kitchen) and put on my apron.

Now, when it comes to the makeup, I apply Bare Minerals products, it’s not supposed to melt.

 

So I ask pose this question:

When you walk into your kitchen, are you all done up?

Hair under a baseball cap, no make up--a bit of moisturizer,white polo shirt, checks, Danskos. Always several cooks coats with me in case I end up a in galley that has cooler times (pretty rare).

Not a gal, but I do keep some lotion in my locker. For my hands after shift.

 

Doesn't wearing make up in the kitchen cause you to break out?

See, thetincook, that's what I was thinking too.  Even in my home kitchen I don't like to cook when I have on makeup.

Mainly because I tend to wipe my forhead on my sleave and I get foundation all over me (and lipstick).

You wear lipstick on your forehead?  Must be a Hawaiian tribal thing!  lol  And yes I'm just teasing!  :P

Eye pencil, a bit of blush, light colored lip gloss.

Gloss keeps me from "tasting" a bit too much.

tincook and kgirl,

actually a bit of tinted moisturizer helps to protect your skin a bit from all ravages of life over a stove...the splattering of sauteeing,the smoke of grilling,kitchen heat in general. i'm an aveda girl and at 8500 ft i always, always have

 lip balm, sometimes i use an aveda aloe hydrating gel...keep it in the fridge so its cool. then i can use it a different times of the day(between prep an service) to refresh my skin(and attitude).. its like those little overpriced spray bottles of evian water..man did they feel awesome to spritz on during a hot day..for dress, shirt, jeans, danskos and a four way when i'm prepping all alone, which is always, and checks with a nice 3/4 sleeved blouse/shirt for dinner service... a little bronzer, light mascara and lipstick in my pocket....gotta love lipstick! such a small thing that always makes me feel so good... i keep my chef jackets for schmoozing or for catered parties. lots of fun colors....

joey

kgirl, when you come to durango and come to the restaurant, you can see for yourself!....p.m me with your dates...sometimes its pretty hard to get a reservation in july unless someone cancels or dies....

AAA - LL- OOOO -HAAA!!  LOL, You Funny! You know what I mean...

I have this habit of using my sleave to say brush the hair out of my face (or sweat)

when my hands are icky (I hate chicken hands the most)

and I inevitably schmear lipstick on me.  That's one of the hardest things to get out!

foodnfoto, love you're websites, super cool!  I was just watching on TV about this guy who does something along the same line with gelato. 

... lip gloss huh?  I sample just a bit too much while I'm cook, then I don't want to sit down to supper. My husband gets upset, saying that I don't eat. YEAH RIGHT!!

kgirl,

a four way is basically an apron folded in half at the waist so that you have four sides...goes around your waist, not your neck... use one side, then the other of the same side, then turn it inside out and you get 2 more sides...da dah...a four sided apron!..wish i had invented it..if i had, i think i'd be retired right now instead of just tired!!! personlly i hate bib type aprons..they bug my neck when my head is down, when you have to reach into an oven they pull and are just in general annoying...plus...4 ways are cool... 'the look that cooks'!...

joey

I live in temperate climes - so I walk into my kitchen wearing the makeup I've worn all day at work.

 

In the mornings, I usually wait until AFTER breakfast before applying makeup!

... ah, sou desu ka, sensei, (I understand teacher)  DING I googled "four way" now I get it.  But I get real messy on my top half, not from the waist down.  I'm notoriously covered in splats of this or that by the end of the day of cooking.

You forgot to include "apron" in the search term!

I rarely have make up on when I go to work-- when I was younger I did my make up every morning before work, but once I hit my 30's, I just didn't care so much. I do use a sunscreen facial moisterizer every day though. Once in a while I'll have eyebrow pencil and mascara on, usually if I'm expecting to be trotted out in front of the guests for some reason like a special dinner.

'Nice'?

 

Our winter is probably 7 months of the year - our summer?  Probably 3 weeks!

We have lots and lots of rain - we have many ways of describing it from mizzle, drizzle to stair-rods!  We have a lot of humidity in our 'summer' as we are near the coast.  We also have sea-mists, known locally as haars. We have lots of 'weather' - very little of which could be called 'nice'!

Ishbel, I can relate about rain and humidity. 

Having lived most of my life in one of the wettest spots on the Earth,

I hardly ever wore foundation. 

It was way too sticky and make up would cake up. 

How do you cope? 

Where I worked, I was fortunate to have a boss (a woman)

who didn’t get fussy about attire. 

I had a back office job, no one ever saw me. 

I did have a job when I was much younger that it was required to wear full make up, do your hair, wear hose, the whole sha-bang!!

Make-up in my kitchen?  No way for me.  I'm lucky to be wearing clothing, let alone make-up.  I do tie my hair back, and if it's hot, I use a clasp to pin up the tied-back hair so it's off my neck.  In the summer I wear rubber flip-flops and panties, and a t-shirt if it's not sweat-dripping hot.  In the coldest part of winter I add the bottoms of long underwear to the outfit, and sometimes a pair of thick warm socks.  The only shortcoming is potential harm from hot cooking.  I have a nice pair of thick oven mitts, and I'm very careful to have my chest covered when I'm frying things.

I rarely wear makeup... actually I haven't since my very early twenties... wow I'm old...LOL.  I do keep a skin cleanser and moisturizer in my work bag though and I use them at the end of a shift. 

 

If I wear makeup it's either for a wedding, funeral or a Christmas party....

OK ... where am I going?.. and WHY am I in this handbasket??
