We all have those down days. It's normal and healthy. But to be able to fake happy and pull it off is a special skill. It's like the Stepford wife armour. Don't let them know how bad you are feeling, push those feelings deep, deep down and put a smile on your face. It might not be healthy but it's how I roll. Denial, denial, denial.
Next, concealer for the dark circles from the sleepless nights but be careful not to use too much else it will fall into the wrinkles created by all your worrying
Blush is a must. This will make you look healthy and alive. A gorgeous, artificial glow of good health.
Mascara to open those puffy eyes.
A spritz of perfume to cloak the smell of despair.
A bright outfit. The more colour the better but not too many patterns or you'll start to look unhinged.
And smile, because the whole world smiles with you when you fake smile at it.
Usually by this stage I am feeling better. If I'm still feeling low, then I throw down some money on a sexy frock and lingerie then go out to dinner with my man, or phone a girlfriend for a wine & whine delivery.
How do you put it together on one of those days?
