This could go on forever. Probably with increased fervor as time goes on.

Cosmetic rituals gives me a sense of control. It started years ago and will likely continue for a while. We can develop such reliance on material things, and our relationship with them can evolve. I took these photos, applying and removing my make-up over and over, condensing in minutes what happens over years, decades. A ritual that is so simple but so comforting.
