Lifestyle | 12 things you hear all the time when you’re a low maintenance girl

If you are a roll-outta-bed, minimal effort made kinda girl like me, then there are certain things that we hear on a regular basis. It’s not to say that I don’t like makeup or beauty things, I love them! I just can’t be dealing with it every single day of my life. My standard look: hair down, 10 minute makeup routine; au naturale is an understatement.

‘You look tired.’ No, everyone looks tired underneath. You’re just noticing it on me because I haven’t been bothered to do an extensive cover up job this morning.

‘OMG I didn’t even recognise you.’ This is not meant as an insult but when you eventually do make a bit of an effort then you probably will get this.

‘I think I’ll wear tights today.’ Because who has time to shave their legs every other day?!

‘Let’s take one more.’ FYI the no-makeup look doesn’t always translate well in selfies. Infact, if you are next to contoured and Kylie-lip-kitted goddesses then you will look like a pot plant in comparison.

‘I wish I had the confidence to go out without makeup.’ Nah, you mean laziness.

‘What’s your foundation, it’s so natural!’ Erm, it’s called No Foundation.

‘Maybe I’ll wear highlighter as it’s a special occasion.’ I know how to push the boat out.

‘Do you wear flipflops even in winter?’ Okay, let’s get this straight. I will wear flipflops as long as I possibly can. 1) they don’t require matching to an outfit. 2) they don’t require socks.

‘Have you heard about Beauty Blenders or *insert other mainstream product which has been around for ages here*?’ Yes, I have. I don’t live under a rock. I actually have one. I just can’t be bothered every… – we’ve been through this already.

‘Do you have sensitive skin?‘ NO I JUST CBA TO DO MY MAKEUP EVERY DAY K???

‘How come your hair is wet? Is it raining outside?’ Naaaah I just washed it this morning and this job doesn’t warrant a full blow dry. Soz.


‘PLEEEEEAAASSEE can I do your makeup?!!!!!’ Oh Lord.

Girls, tell me I’m not alone here?!

    This made me giggle. I have a whole makeup bag of probably a lot of out of date makeup.

    When I can be bothered, the effort is still minimal: bb cream, mascara, eyeshadow and blush. Maybe some colour on my lips maybe.

    I still don’t know what highlighter is and I don’t think I will ever be bothered with makeup to the extent of others. Sorry not sorry!

    Oh god! SO relatable, my friend is always asking if she can do my eyebrows I’m like what? Why? Why would you wanna do that? Leave my eyebrows alone, I like being natural stop trying to convert me 😂 I seriously can not be bothered doing a makeup routine everyday! – Sarah xoxo
