i shower, shampoo, condition, moisturize; apply mousse, styling lotion, then blow dry for volume, add finishing hold and styling clay and then a squirt of hairspray. a minimum of 30 mins from top to bottom.
then there's the make-up, moisturizer, foundation, concealer, powder, blusher, eye-liner,eye shadow, eye shadow contour, mascara, translucent powder, blusher.... i like to think of it as the 'natural look'. another 10 mins.
believe me after doing this for about 40 years it's getting very annoying. cos the older you get, the more patching up there is to do! i could use that time doing something else i really like to do. (perhaps staying in bed for an extra 30 minutes)
the other day i saw a youtube video of cher. she's got to be in her mid to late 60's. even with all of the plastic surgery she's had which makes her expressions a tad scary: the make-up! the hair! the stuff she was wearing to make her look not as old as she should!
oy vey, i was tired just thinking about how long it must take.
i bet she resembles me first thing in the morning.
i bet she looks like nick nolte's mug shot too.
