I have come to the not so wonderful conclusion that my legacy has been helping people to be more vain. People often remember me most for some beauty tip that I once gave them. Whether its showing someone how to pluck her eyebrows or pointing out to another what clothes a chic mom might wear, I apparently love to dispense beauty advise. How embarrassing. The funny thing is that I am always trying to be less and less vain and embrace what my mom always said was the most beautiful of all: natural beauty. So I guess I am not becoming less vain. After all, desiring natural beauty is still wanting to be beautiful. The only difference is that now I am less willing to work for it. Every morning I just tell myself that I don't need makeup, although that doesn't stop me from putting on bronzer. That my friends is the secret, by the way, to no-makeup makeup. With bronzer you look natural, sun-kissed and healthy. (And I realize that real tans aren't healthy but they look like they are.) And I'm not talking about the sparkly kind. Uggh! Please no. Bobby Brown makes a great bronzer that totally looks natural. Remember not to apply too close to your hair line or else the contrast between your white scalp and brown forehead makes it really obvious that you didn't spend the day outside gardening or running happily with your kids and dogs in a meadow. And please, don't forget the decolletage.
