Dear Constant Reader,
Happy Friday! Here’s your tip:
To keep your lip makeup intact, drink with a straw.
Because I was a Girl Scout, I like to be prepared. Since I wouldn’t want to assume that any given venue would have straws for the showgirls, I carry this stainless steel straw in my gig bag. I even made a little cloth sleeve so the straw stays clean when I’m not using it (just visible in the lower left corner of the photo).
Like this tip? There are lots more in Miss Mina Murray’s Little Book of Better Burlesque.
