Go easy on the makeup
I overheard two teenage girls, possibly sisters, chatting whilst browsing through some magazines. They were discussing, in great detail, the ‘look’ of several celebrities and trying to work out how they could copy their secrets. Suddenly one stopped reading, looked up and stared at the other, and then came out with this pithy comment.
“Go easy on the makeup; you aren’t as ugly as you think.”
I don’t think she meant it to sound as harsh as it did to me, but her friend was not impressed.
