Lip liner? Seriously?

It’s gone mad now.  Everything.  The world.  Mad. 

One constant I had to cling to in life was that the car boot is where you keep swimmy stuff.  Everyone the same.  Dumped there.  Loads of it.  Clean it out a couple of times a year.  Grand.  Comforting, though.  You know your swimmy stuff is there.  Togs.  Goggles.  Hats.  Flasks.  Towels.  Lip liner.  Wha?

“I’ve lip liner in the boot, if you need it”.  Words I never thought I’d hear at the top of Myrtleville beach.  Until yesterday.  Then I noticed various ladies unwilling to get out of their cars until they had primped, preened and titivated to their satisfaction. 

Is this the Instagram generation taking us over?  “I wouldn’t be seen dead at the Dutchman without lipstick….”?  “It’s under 10c, I’d better use a different foundation….”?

Seriously, ladies, ye don’t need to be listening to Denis.  Ye’re gorgeous just they way ye are.  Clean out those boots now.  Put the lippy back in the house where it belongs.  Go for the natural look.  Like these icons.  Not a lip liner between them.

Really now.   Kiss that lip liner goodbye.
