    23 Weird Things Girls Do In Front Of The Mirror But Don't Talk About

    Your Oscars speech is practiced to perfection.

    1. Every girl has done a makeup tutorial for absolutely no one and not filmed it at all.

    if you don't talk to your reflection in the mirror as if you're doing a youtube tutorial are you even doing your makeup??

    2. This usually starts off as a "simple smokey eye" and turns into full on drag queen look with bright lipstick and contour you would never wear outside.


    3. Then you remember you have to go out, or you're called to dinner, and you have to frantically rub it off and answer questions later about why you're so blotchy.

    4. You've pretended to be interviewed about your life life and work, usually hosted by Oprah.
