Oh, the things I do for beauty!
I take 30 minutes of my day
to conceal every flaw on my face.
My eyelashes are angel wings.
My lips are red wine served to kings.
I have cosmetic cases filled with nail polish.
With all the colors in the world? Mission accomplished!
I have a shoe addiction because each pair
must match every outfit combo I wear.
All these things are true, though,
so I can gain your approval.

This NaPoWriMo poem is filled with ten LIES! If you know me well enough, you know that I don’t have or do any of these things. I’m not the biggest fan of makeup because my skin won’t allow it. It’s so sensitive that one time, I put some sensitive skin foundation on my face and it broke out! I mean, there was an itchy, red rash on my right cheek! I returned it the next day, so no more makeup breakouts for me.
And if you happen to be a makeup fanatic with a beauty ritual, all the power to you! We should all strive to present our best selves in any way that makes you feel great and confident.
