Growing up I never liked makeup. I didn’t put makeup on my dolls. Well, I did on a giant doll named delilah. And that was more scary than anything else. Other than that, I just didn’t care to doll myself up. Slowly that changed. The last five years, I’ve gone all in on the makeup front. This past year, I actually figured out what Ulta sells.
Then coronovirus happened. I’m running around like a headless chicken. I’m on videoconference after videoconference. It’s not easy trying to be 10 steps ahead of the pandemic. There’s actually almost no way to do so. It’s all so unpredictable. Life is not normal.
As a result. I’ve been making sure to put makeup on each day. I also blow out my hair daily. I need one normal thing in my life. Although, that routine was never routine for me. However, that makeup and hair ritual is so key right now. It is amazing how daily scripts are flipped and how rituals become even more important.
