Changing Your Appearance To Please Your Family

Do You Change Your Beauty Routine When You're Around Your Family?

There's a good chance that you've been spending more time with relatives lately, and with family gatherings often come alterations in the way we conduct ourselves. Especially with outward appearances, people have a tendency to self-edit when they're around Eagle-Eyed Grandpa or Judgmental Aunt Margaux —I know I do. Days with family can be a time to relax out of the lengthy beauty routine we follow the rest of the year, or a chance to look our prim and proper best. So my question is, have you been changing your beauty routine for your family, whether by wearing less makeup and keeping your look casual or by making sure that your hair looks perfect and your face made up to a T? And do you like it, or do you resent the pressure to look different than you normally do?
