The Struggle of Being Low-Maintenance
You might be the low maintenance one of the group if...
You realized by reading this you've been pronouncing it "mai-tenance" because that first "N" just takes too long to say and you're all about efficiency
I'm only half joking.
You have one outfit that is your "going out" outfit. One.
I mean if it only happens once every couple months you only need one, right? You don your trusty skinny jeans and booties ($20 at Charlotte Russe HOLLER) while your friends try on a slew of cute sweaters and every Kendra accessory the rainbow has to offer.
You've been using the same eyeshadow pallet since *cough* 7th grade
I mean you've barely dipped into it; this thing is practically immortal. You probably don't have proper brushes either. (Does a Q-tip count?)
You're the first one ready to go out, so you've downloaded games on your phone for when you have to wait for everyone.
I mean or maybe you sit there and read the WSJ, but let's be honest with ourselves here.
You don't have any Starbucks red cups pictures in your camera roll because the plain old $2 drip brew from elsewhere is much more appealing than a $5 latte
But would it kill Einsteins to get some red cups?!?!?
Your closet is more for storage than it is to hold clothes
I've got a TV, several moving boxes, a fan, and a yoga mat in mine, wbu??
When your friends all go to the bathroom and spend 5 minutes doing touch ups, you end up telling long stories about your old dog or ex-boyfriend just to kill the time that you won't be spending redoing your winged liner
Sorry, is this not relatable?
You own one fancy outfit
And it's the same one you wore to your graduation, your cousin's graduation, three weddings, a friend's limo birthday party, and it's probably what you'll be buried in.
You don't know how to contour
When I see one of those contour sticks, I get short of breath, I swear.
The last big hair change you made was changing your part
It's revolutionary, really.
You read blogs and watch makeup tutorials on Youtube, but never actually apply the tips of "the perfect winged liner" and "romantic side swept curls"
Because...well...you're a low maintenance gal.
Not hating on anyone if you can't relate to any of these/if you own a lot of Kendra. Honestly - teach me how to use a contour stick! Just trying to liven up your Monday. Have a great week, everyone!
