Think celebrities are fake? Quarantine transformations prove it
Even when we’re not dealing with a global pandemic or quarantines, most of us can’t afford the glamorous beauty routines adopted by celebrities. All that hair dye, designer make-up, waxing, and trimming adds up quickly. No matter how much money they have in the bank, celebrities are forced to join the rest of us in going without as the world remains shut down from COVID-19.
