HILLARY’S NAKED, BRAVE FACE!
I have a girlfriend who doesn’t use makeup, apart from a swish of tinted lip balm.
In 25 years of knowing her, I have never seen her wearing mascara, foundation, blush, eye shadow or any other kind of war paint. She has kept the same, short, plain hairstyle and her only concession to vanity is that once every month or so, she has it re-tinted her signature shade of red.
OMG! The time that woman has saved.
Let’s say it’s 30 minutes a day for 25 years – by my calculations that’s almost 5000 hours in front of the mirror.
It’s been fascinating to watch images of Hillary Clinton, 64, sans make-up (left), go viral after she appeared bare-faced (apart from her pink lipstick), with her hair loose.
She was visiting Bangladesh in her capacity as US Secretary of State and had been touring the region for three days straight. (If it had been me, I would have appeared in a balaclava.)
Critics on Fox News (surprise, surprise) said she looked “tired and withdrawn”. (I think they meant “drawn”.)
Millions of comments later, such was the brouhaha that Ms Clinton addressed it in an interview with CNN’s Jill Dougherty (below, with her “face” on, and flattering lighting, it would appear).
This is what she had to say:
“I feel so relieved to be at the stage I’m at in my life right now, Jill. Because you know if I want to wear my glasses I’m wearing my glasses. If I want to wear my hair back I’m pulling my hair back. You know at some point it’s just not something that deserves a lot of time and attention. And if others want to worry about it, I let them do the worrying for a change. It doesn’t drive me crazy anymore. It’s just not something I think is important anymore.”
Is it worth pointing out that male politician’s heads can look like dropped pies and no-one bothers to comment?
Probably not. We know all that by now.
What interests me more are the comments from so many women that Hillary was “brave”.
