The Lighter Side

The Post-Break Up Makeover

I’ve just finished reading this great post The Power of the Post-Break Up Makeover from the ever-fun Zoe Foster over on Primped.

Says Zoe: “Nothing says “I’m over you” to your ex-boyfriend than hiring a Monster truck and gleefully driving over his car, or in the case of Miss ABBIE CORNISH (who recently split up with one RYAN PHILLIPPE) chopping all your hair off, dying it gigablonde and wearing a spectacular red dress (and a saucy smirk) down the red rug.”

I completely agree. Head to Primped.com to check out the photos and read the rest of the post.

Last time I broke up with a boyfriend, I went nuts on my post-break up makeover too. But unfortunately it didn’t turn out quite the way I had in mind.

I dyed my hair dark brunette, cut a short fringe in (not the best idea on semi-wavy, semi-curly hair with a perpetual cowlick in front) and stacked on close to 10kg. The dark hair made my skin look pasty and I felt like I always had to pack on the make up to compete with the drama of my locks. Awkward much?

Yeah, way to show him! I learned my lesson very quickly. Never, ever do anything that drastic until you’re truly over it/him.
