16 first world beauty problems you can relate to
In the grand scheme of world problems, our day-to-day beauty ones typically fall into the not-so-serious category.
Because, let’s face it, having to redo your make-up in the morning because you put on too much blush pales in comparison to the likes of Ebola, the conflict in the Middle East and even the flu that has your coworker bedridden.
But that’s not to say we can’t have a whinge every now and then, because sometimes it ain’t easy having to deal with the problems we do. So let’s take this opportunity to vent about our First World Beauty Problems.
