I had to laugh

June 25, 2008

Recently there was a program on the BBC called ‘Snog, Marry or Avoid?’. This was billed as the world’s first “make-under” show. Thankfully I managed to avoid this, but the premise was that some extremely made up women (Google Jodie Marsh, but be prepared for a bit of potentially NSFW content) and to remove the make up and make them look natural.

On the train this morning a suitably under-made up lady, pushed me out of the way as she smugly occupied the last seat left. Disgruntled I was until the brushes came out. And the pencils, mirrors, hair straighteners* and all the other paraphernalia.

So deftly did she stroke the brush across her cheeks. Her lips took on an alluring pout in a lovely shade of burnt red. Her eyelashes grew to luscious lengths. And then the train jerked and she poked herself in the eye.

Like I said. I had to laugh.






*Ok, maybe not the straighteners.
