lipstick is gone after a cookie, or a few sips of water. eyeliner, where the heck does that go? gone after a few hours. i don't have experience with other makeup, but with all the touching up i see, it doesn't last. there is the option of some of the new long-lasting preparations, but that takes some of the romanticism out of it all, a bit too shellacked for my taste.
what if clothing were similarly ephemeral?
- i'm not talking about finding yourself suddenly stark naked in the middle of the office or classroom, but what if you had to carry extra socks, or a belt, or a top, for when the one you had on started to fade?
