Beauty Schedule For Busy Young Wives, Today's Woman magazine 1952
The guide I'm going to use is the beauty schedule above (as well as masses of Youtube tutorials), until I find something more comprehensive. I'm going to do it, day by day throughout the week, just like the guide says but since Date Night is coming up shortly I decided to cram the whole week's grooming into one delicious evening of pampering.
Mr H, who is always keen to spoil me, took charge of the children's bedtime routine and I was free to soak in a bubble filled tub for a couple of hours. I relaxed, I read my book, I washed and set my hair in pins, I put on a facemask, I defuzzed, gave myself a manicure and I even put cucumber slices over my eyes. I don't know what that does exactly, but I see it on the telly all the time, so it must be good! I thoroughly enjoyed myself but I will say this, whilst I do like the look of my newly tamed eyebrows, OWWWWW! It hurt so much! There must be a better way of doing it than yanking out each individual hair with tweezers! I mean good grief!
Painful eyebrow plucking aside, I feel much better. I was never always convinced on the benefits of fussing with one's appearance but I am now officially a convert. I feel sharper and more confident. I also look better. My skin is clearer, my eyes look brighter and I think it will actually help me have more time in the morning because I can wear less make-up but still look polished. I wonder how well I'll sleep on these pins...
