5 Realistic Stages Of A Face Mask Routine
Victoria Liu

Recently, my social media newsfeeds have been filled with posts of girls trying out different at-home face masks and I get so jealous because I want to do them too! I thought maybe, just maybe, I could repeat what these experts of face masks do. After all, they all say they're using at-home recipes.

Result? It's not at all like those social media posts.

The following are the five stages of anyone trying to do an at-home routine when it comes to face masks.

1. You make your mixture and realize it looks nothing like the pictures online.

The pictures online all show a beautiful paste or liquid, perfectly spread out on a perfect girl's face. Reality? You are scared to even apply whatever it is you just made because it just looks like a piece of gunk.

2. You apply it to your face and...well.. you don't look pretty at all.

You tell yourself maybe the mask will make you pretty after you take it off, but right now, with your hair tied back like that and your eyes poking out like a dead fish, you honestly have never looked so bad. You laugh it off, but you make sure to avoid the mirror until the time is up.

3. Washing the mask off suddenly is a task the Devil himself designed

There you are, your elbows grinding and your hands straight at work. The mixture is just messing up your sink and it's taking forever to wipe off. You don't even remember reaching that far from your chin, but apparently, you took that stretch.

4. You realize nothing really changed, but washing anything off your face feels so refreshing

So, yeah, you lie to yourself. You walk around feeling like a new woman when in reality, nothing too groundbreaking just happened. You just have a messy sink, sticky hair and an hour you'll never get back. But it's all worth it, right? Right...

5. You're at the store, buying a store face mask.

Maybe this stuff will work!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
