This Is All You Need to Look Pretty

I MEAN. Listen. You look beautiful no matter what — you, me, your mom and Oprah all know that. But commiserate with me for a moment here as I take you back to the other day when I was…

Running late

For a date

And I hated:

My outfit

My hair

And my face.

Which is not a nice thing to say I hate, but you guys have to have those days too, right?

So there I was, sitting on the floor doing my makeup. Trying to go from this:


To this:


And nothing was working.

Then I remember my friend Nadia gave me this Chanel eyeshadow stick-thing after I saw her one morning and was like whoa hey hi, why do you look so pretty?

“Because I’m French!” I thought she was going to say. But nope. It was this eyeshadow stick-thing.

So I held it before my lids like a sword, cried out, “En guarde,” scribbled two fat lines then smudged.

And oh my god Becky, stop looking at my butt. I’m up here.

A woman transformed. I looked pretty. Something about the stick’s bronze-y tones making my eyeballs pop and just-enough-shimmer to look special. It was like a smokey eye, but not. Mega “Why do you look different?” effect.

So in the name of good karma, I pass the baton to you:

Use it when you need to feel pretty. “Feel” is a better word. You already look pretty.

(I know because I can see you through the screen.)

    • Amelia Diamond

      I like this comment so much. Yes.

  • Does that rat-thing remind anyone else of Rodents of Unusual Size (R.O.U.S)? Anyone? Bueller…?

  • I wear makeup to look like the naked mole

    Laila from Townhouse Palette

    • Amelia Diamond

      naked mole rats are beautiful

  • Love that you emphasize FEEL pretty, so true. And that creepy side comment of seeing through the screen – for a mili second got my mind ‘can she!?’ (And I work in tech!) 🙂

  • yoohooo

    when you guys make posts like this, raving about a makeup product, can you PLEASE show us how it looks on? The description is nice, but not all that helpful. A photo of someone, anyone, wearing it would be so much better in helping everyone decide if it is something they want to buy.

    • Amelia Diamond

      YES. we will.

  • Ah I already have a stick eyeshadow obsession haha I’ll add this to my wish list 😉 x

  • So, I just came across this site for the first time tonight – and just had to say how very impressed I am with how very charming your writing style is! Your ability to showcase your insatiably hilarious wit and outstanding sense of humor is seriously brilliant. It’s very rare for me to actually laugh out loud over an article that I’m reading – But I literally just woke my husband up from laughing so hard… I can’t wait to read more from you!! Cheers! <3
