Do You Apply Makeup In The Car?

I often wonder how many woman actually apply their makeup from START to FINISH while IN the car.  I just did a major makeup application (even for myself) yesterday for a super fun experience (details to come later!) and did lots of touchups in my car along the way.  But only while I was in complete standstill traffic,  I promise, and they were only touchups.

I could never ever ever do my personal makeup in the car from start to finish because…

  • A. the motion would give me crooked eye liner, 
  • B. the lighting is tricky, 
  • C. my kids in the backseat would distract me, and 
  • D. my cup holder isn’t big enough to hold my makeup brushes and my travel makeup case is too big to sit in the passenger seat.  

All I was able to do on the way into Atlanta was reapply my lip liner and gloss like 40 times and swipe on my MakeUp Forever HD Finishing powder to keep my skin as matte as possible.  Because I’m sure I was getting shiny in my car, sitting, with the air conditioner blowing. Ha!!  But I’ve heard a few of my friends say that they can put on a full face of makeup on their way to work in the morning.

Question is, how good can that full face actually look when applying in a moving vehicle??

How many of you have the skills to do your makeup from start to finish in the car?  Or do you just do the occasional touch ups at a red light like I do?
