Vanity Insanity

To be beautiful, one must suffer…

Chemical peels, strict diets, botox injections, breast augmentations, eye-liner tattooing. There seems to be no limit to the amount of suffering people are willing to endure in pursuit of beauty.

But, there are less-extreme methods for fighting blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone without resorting to strawberry-red or purple blue status. I would suggest trying a brightening cleanser, salicylic-acid spot treatment, and a high end anti aging cream first.

If you’re too busy to apply make up or not skilled enough to paint a desirable eye liner, I would suggest making time in your schedule for a ‘ Make me Beautiful’ masterclass with a professional.

Keep in mind that sometimes all it takes to draw the “perfect” line is the right applicator—look for liner tips for easy gliding, or ask the make up artist about the ‘invisible eyeliner’. By doing your own liner, you’ll have more options! From a tight line to winged eye liner.

Tip: Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Liner is an innovative semi-crème eye liner with a velvet matte finish that delivers long-lasting pure colour with a rich texture similar to the Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencils. Perfect for creating a classic, smudged line or smoky eyes. Mistake-proof formula never drops colour onto the cheek or face. Use dry for a smoky look.


Or try Bobbi Brown’s easy to apply gel eyeliner, for that winged eye effect.


Have fun pursuing beauty, without necessary chemical peels, size zero diets, botox injections, breast augmentations and permanent eye-liner tattooing. Because there are limits to the amount of suffering you should be willing to endure in pursuit of beauty.
