Welcome to The Sample Life, Beauty for the Aspirational. The Sample life is the Festivus of beauty blogs, because while every girl wants to look pretty, most of us don’t have our shit together enough to set up 6 Chanel bottles on a mirrored tray. Beauty blogs offer us an escape into the lives of the gifted and fabulous, but in reality their recommendations don’t mean much since they wake up to the zitless perfection only a fashion editor whose parents pay for their apartment can achieve. We are real assholes who wake up looking like fugly monsters, moving from scrubby situation to scrubby situation with only under eye concealer to serve as the spackle that keeps our lives together, so you can trust our word and recommendation. Enjoy!
