    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?

    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).

    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!

    shipacook ~ Nan, you're in Alaska?  That's someplace that I have wanted to go, for sure!  Someday...

    anywho... you private chef, how exciting!  That's something that I had seriously considered doing, but I like my life the way that it is now.

    Rock On Sista'!!

    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'!...

    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.

    I use arm and hammer tooth paste to get the lip stick out of my jackets.

    I've been googling a 4 way for the last 3 hours/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eek.gif
