MY TOP TEN BEAUTY PET PEEVES
If you follow me on Facebook (which, by the way, you should if you'd ever like to chit chat with all of us over there!), then you know that I sometimes post status updates expressing my frustrations (aka rants) about beauty and other things in life.
So this post was actually born of a few status updates I did a while back, which received lots of "likes," meaning that many of you seem to share the same types of frustrations (soooo glad I'm not alone in my misery!). So here are the things that tend to the bug me the most when it comes to the wonderful world of beauty:
Having to sneeze immediately after applying mascara.
Having perfectly clear skin on days when no one sees me. Why do I always get a blemish (or three) on a day when I have an important engagement or meeting or have to have my photo taken?
Getting a chip on a manicure that I really wanted to keep perfect for just one day.
Turning my favorite shampoo/conditioner/body wash upside down in the shower so that the very last drops go to the top of the bottle so that I can get just one more application. And then getting in the shower the next day to discover that I didn't quite click the lid closed all the way.
Realizing I just ran out of makeup remover towelettes on the exact night when I'm just too tired/lazy/cold to stand at the sink and properly wash my face.

Using an old, stretched out ponytail holder that isn't tight enough after two wraps around my hair but it just...won't...make...it all the way around to a third wrap.
Digging through my purse to find the lipstick I want to wear...and pulling out seven other lipsticks instead of the one I want (why is the one I want always the last one I pull out of my purse?).
Standing at the drugstore debating for an hour over which shade of eyeshadow to buy, only to come home and realize that the one I ended up buying doesn't look good on me. (And then going back to the drugstore to get the one I should have bought...only to discover that it's now sold out.)
Using a bath pouf that is floppy and old (and overdue to be replaced) with a chord that is dyed the same color as the actual pouf. I swear I have to spend a good 15 minutes standing in my shower because I cannot find the darned chord. I turn the thing over...and over...and the chord is just hiding inside the folds of the bath pouf, taunting me! Fifteen minutes later, I finally find the chord so that I can hang the pouf back up on the shower caddy.
And my Number 1 Beauty Pet Peeve
Being somewhere without any hand lotion...when I have 186 bottles of hand lotion sitting at home.
