But then the dreaded two-week mark hits, and the shine starts to fade, chips start to show, and cuticles suddenly start growing in at breakneck speed.
There a lot of images of us editors on Byrdie looking very made up and polished. Of course, it's our job to provide beauty inspiration, so it makes sense that we'd publish photos of us looking our best. But after a while, it starts to feel a littleвЂ¦uncharacteristically perfect.
