BLURB

Beauty is, in reality, not a physical quality, but rather a sentimentality or appreciation, whether for the physique, the personality, or even the intellect. But is it not true, rather, that much of what we recognise as "beauty" comes from a perfectly manufactured construct – cosmetic application, wardrobe selection, and a healthy dose of confidence and sass. The girls of this animated vanity are all too familiar with this concept – only note their careful touches of makeup, meticulous adjustments to the minutest aesthetic detail, and complete absorption in their crafting of the magical Self. But in our fascinated observation of their primping, we also find ourselves face to face with our own – and all-too-human – self-centredness. [Jack Mur]
