Happy April Fools Day! Today's also my mom's birthday, which is no April Fools joke. Unfortunately, I don't have any really good April Fools Day stories, so I turned to comedian Samantha Bee, who you're probably familiar with from the The Daily Show, and got her to dish some fun beauty truths. She partnered with Dove to unveil the truth about cleansers (see here) so if you dish your beauty truth, you have a chance to win beauty loot from Dove! What's the craziest thing you've done for the sake of beauty?
I’ve never gotten that crazy. I did used to burn myself on one side of my body every spring to jump start my tan—but I’m paying the price for that today. Duly noted, Mother Nature.
What's your biggest beauty pet peeve?
We should be kinder to ourselves. Stop trying to slough your skin every 5 seconds! Stop telling us to do that, Beauty Industry!
How long does it take you to get ready daily? How about for the Jon Stewart Show?
It takes me about a half an hour to get ready every day—I’m very vigilant about my routine. I have to be moisturized by a certain point in the process or I feel that all is lost.
What was the most awkward moment you've ever had with a celebrity?
I cried from excitement! Like a pre-teen girl meeting The Beatles, (except it wasn’t the Beatles, not even close.
Confess! What's something most people don't know about you?
I like my underwear large and in charge. The ‘horror’ of panty lines is something I would never ever care about in one million years.
Now that you've heard some of Samantha Bee's beauty truths, spill your own below. The most inspiring truth will win a years supply of Dove Beauty Bars along with other fun beauty buys from Dove. I'll announce the winner in the comments section below on Friday. Good luck!
