When I say top 10, that means there’s actually more. You might find my life concerning after you read through these or maybe you secretly do the same things. These are things I do regularly when I’m getting ready hoping to look beautiful! I have come to realize that sometimes I do things in my beauty routine that are a bit bizarre. I hope I’m not alone here. If you comment and tell me you do some of these or other bizarre and maybe slightly gross things, it would make me feel a little better about my weirdness level.
#1 Bedtime Falsie Frenzy
I don’t know why I do this but I wait for my husband to go to sleep and then I grab my iPhone. I hop onto eBay and buy lashes that I don’t need. I’ll buy thirty different pairs and there are probably 200 sitting in my cupboard organized by brand and style. (Ummm, yeah, I can’t explain it) In the morning, my husband sees what I’ve done via Paypal notifications and I shamefully leave for work. When the packages arrive, he throws them at me.
#2 In-Home Personal Attendant
I’m always running late. Usually, it’s because I had a cat eye wing catastrophe. However, Stila’s All Day Liquid liner has helped immensely with that problem which causes me to run late. There’s plenty more reasons I can’t get ready on time. When it’s really bad, I get my 15 year old son to stand there with the blow dryer and get my hair mostly dry while I work on my makeup. I haven’t asked him to feed me grapes yet while I’m blogging.
#3 Jammie Rag
I buy these adorable pajamas from Victoria’s Secret. You know the really cute ones with the tank tops and matching draw string bottoms that are grossly over-priced at $52US? I wear them when I do my makeup and instead of using all the makeup cloths I bought, I wipe brushes, excess lash glue, and foundation – well basically everything – on the pajama bottoms and now every pair is stained and ugly. I still wear them every day despite the fact every pair now doubles as a rag. It is rather convenient.
#4 Dirty Hair
I hate washing and drying my hair. It’s long and a pain and I refuse to cut it – EVER. I’m convinced that washing it every few days has made it healthier. I wear a fake pony tail or put it in a bun and go to work with it dirty so no one knows. They just think I changed up my look. HA!
#5 Laying on the Bathroom Floor
When I want that extra volume that I don’t get from my root boosters, I lay flat on my back in the middle of the bathroom with a can of hair spray and spread my hair out and blow dry the roots for extra lift. This is a very disturbing scene to my family and also it upsets our pets. But I get big hair!
#6 Hairspray Overspray
I accidentally purposely get hairspray on my face when I’m putting it in my hair because I know it will help my makeup last longer. I’m sure this is great for my skin and also my lungs. It’s Moroccan Oil spray, does that make it any better?
#7 Emergency Lash Kit
I carry a plastic baggie in my purse that serves as a road side lashes kit. Tire repair kit? No. Last repair kit? Yes. It has glue, q-tips, tooth picks, tweezers, and drink stirrers. All these tools come in handy when an emergency repair is necessary and I’m prepared to perform the task anytime and anywhere.
#8 Getting A Better Shave
Some days I just want my shaving to be perfect so I secretly use my husband’s (expensive) shaving oil and cream. To top it off, I use his razor too. I put everything back just the way he left it. Results are really top notch! No words have ever been spoken about this but according to men; my husband must know I’m doing it.
#9 Keeping Dry
I live in the desert where it’s very hot. My tatas might sweat so I apply deodorant underneath them. I also don’t care who sees me doing it in my house. My master bath has no doors, it’s just a large extension of the bedroom and no one should be lingering in my bathroom when I’m trying to get ready anyhow! (Unless summoned to dry my hair).
#10 Green Tea Care Pads
I don’t drink green tea but I get high quality caffeinated green tea bags and I store them moist in the fridge. When my eyes need a pick me up, I get a pair of cold tea bags and lay on my bed with the tea bags on my eyes. I carry on conversations with my kids and pretend there’s nothing weird going on.
