The curse of being a modern woman – not only do you have to work hard at an amazing job, spend time with your friends, be a good daughter, have a boyfriend, and somehow find time to go to the gym, you also have to do all that and not… look… like you’re not freaking tired all the time? Uhmm… How…? Well, that’s why the beauty gods invented all these products. Yes, it’s stupid that we have to spend money to fulfill some sad myth of “making it look easy” while “having it all”.
