Beauty Secrets

When I think that no one’s looking, I “fix” myself;
I adjust, I pluck, I color.
I find things I don’t like and I try to make them “better”… but who is it for?
I find myself saying, “I don’t do it for your standards, I do it for myself.”
But then, truly, at the bottom of it all, I must ask:
Why do I care about my eyebrows?
I can’t even see them when I’m talking…
But you can.
