Наверное, не слишком актуально давать ссылку на статью полугодовой давности, но я прочитала её вчера и была весьма впечатлена.

Лондонская журналистка Элли Вудвард (Ellie Woodward) провела на себе эксперимент: каково быть Ким Кардашьян в повседневной жизни? В течение недели девушка ежедневно вызывала на дом парикмахера-визажиста для создания полного образа а-ля скандально известная звезда. А затем шла в таком виде на работу, свидание с бойфрендом, встречу с подругой и пр. Плюс к тому Элли Вудвард обязала себя делать десятки и сотни селфи каждый день. И очень внимательно записывала свои ощущения, мысли, реплики окружающих. Оригинал статьи здесь: http://www.buzzfeed.com/elliewoodward/i-had-my-hair-and-makeup-done-like-kim-kardashian-for-a-week

Мне понравились размышления Элли Вудвард о роли косметики в жизни женщины и о том, как внешняя атрибутика влияет на самооценку и самооощущение, а также на впечатление, которое мы производим на других людей.

...My hair looks amazing and I instantly feel more glamorous, but the contouring is insane and my eyelashes look like they belong to Bambi. I feel like my face has been painted on.

...Throughout the journey to work, I feel very self-conscious, and as I arrive in work and walk to my desk, I look down, willing people to not look at me. As I sit down, my boss tells me I look lovely. I’m then told that a colleague saw me walking in and said: “Ellie looks fit as fuck.”

...My eyes are so doll-like it’s almost eerie, and as the day progresses, I come to understand what my boyfriend meant when he said I looked “hyperreal”.

...Equally uncomfortable is attempting to explain a Wi-Fi issue I have in work to the new IT technician while looking as though I’m ready to go out clubbing rather than work.

...More than anything else though, this amount of makeup leads you to spend your entire day thinking about how you look. I’ve never scrutinised my face as heavily as I have this week. It’s exhausting.

...I have a newfound respect for Kim Kardashian. It may seem like a ridiculous concern, but I do understand the pressure she must feel every day to look flawless. After a week of being photographed, I developed a whole host of new insecurities. She’s photographed hundreds of times every day – I can’t imagine the self-scrutiny that must occur.
