I love this quote from Dita von Teese (pictured above):
"I have a lot of friends that have a very natural look & it takes just as long [to achieve]. They straighten their hair, wear all that bronzer & beige lipstick & apply 50 coats of mascara to make themselves look natural. I'm doing the same thing just with different colors. I set my hair which is actually quicker than a blow dry."I always hated that it takes me SO long to get ready in the morning & look effortles--like I'm not too "done." It's a relief to hear that it takes others just as long to get ready & look "natural." I've always been convinced that I'm the only one who has to work to look effortless & that everyone else secretly wakes up looking amazing.
