Hard to be a Woman: Part Deux

Lately, women in their mid-40's (maybe even 50's), are telling me I should either "spend 10 minutes a day doing my make-up" or "accentuate your features with a little rouge." I don't wear makeup on a regular, daily basis. It's hard enough to put on my eye liner sober at 7 pm on a Saturday night, let alone sleepily at 7 am. I'm lucky if I remembered to throw my burts bees lip balm in my work bag.

Truth is, I do get a tad more attention when I'm rockin' blush and colored lip gloss. But the attention is not enough to enough to get me motivated to wear it daily. Maybe because I only attract freaks...maybe it's lack of confidence...or maybe I just don't like goop on my face for 14 hours a day.

At the gym this morning I was watching Tyra Banks' talk show. She was asking the audience if they ever thought about celebrities when they were having sex. Of course one man stood up and said, "you, Tyra." She lifted up her dress to reveal her girdle, or in this day and age I think they call them affectionately "Spanxx." She retorted, "You gonna fantasize about this! About the cellulite on my booty!"

You gotta love a model who is not ashamed to embrace herself as she is, like the rest of us, cellulite and all.

As for me, I think I'll keep going sans makeup because I'm usually more comfortable with out it.

It is nice to hear Tyra embraces her cellulite (if there actually is any). So, what is going on with these personals?
