Women: life v makeup
Just read a statistic in that new The Stylist free mag for women: women spend 12 days a year getting ready for work. Ladies, this is no good at all. Why do you do it? It’s the most pointless exercise of self-perpetuated insecurity-based vanity in the world. Life’s short- too short to spend in face-pinching, hair-frying routines that ultimately make no difference.
My suggestion is this: set your alarm and use the time you would have spent putting on foundation and tweezing non-existent hairs, reading. Reading in bed, preferably something good, like George Eliot or Jane Austen or Martin Amis or Phillip Roth. Then get up, splash some water on your face, maybe some cleanser, a bit of cream and a bit of mascara and bobs your uncle. Oh, and don’t forget to get dressed.
