What Is Your Silliest Vanity?
Every girl, and many a man, have at least one. A silly vanity. A thing that you must do, either for yourself, or before you leave your house, see your boyfriend, get on Skype. The thing that friends and loved ones may sometimes tease you about.
Mine is blush. As clean-faced as I’ve gotten through this process, blush has emerged as the one product I do not like being seen without. I’m loath to admit that I even sometimes dab a little on my cheeks before exercise class.
I just feel like it makes me look so much fresher and healthier, though members of my family have warned it can also look like war paint if I don’t use a light touch. Oh, and the length of my nails can get a little silly too. Let’s just say guitar is not in my future.
Vanities can also border on strange obsessions, can’t they? For instance, according to lore, Marilyn Monroe would rinse her face exactly 15 times after washing it. And apparently Jackie O would fast for a day if she so much as gained a pound.
So how about you? Is there an absolute must-do before anyone lays eyes on you, or simply something you yourself can’t tolerate?
Do you hate a bare nail, a naked lash? Do you have a scar you hide, or an under eye concealer you feel like a zombie without? Maybe it’s heels, or perfume, or Spanx. Maybe you magic marker your stray grays. The floor is open!
