Anything shiny! Mirror mirror on the wall?

Do you have the habit of looking at yourself in every mirror you see? Be it a glass whereas you can see your reflection? Or rather any shiny surface where you can use as a mirror? Well honestly I do sometimes. Just can't help it especially if outdoors, you don't actually know how you look, or if your hair is already messed up so I try to catch a glimpse of myself when there is a glass pane or something. However, I do not do it all the time because as I have imagined, when I am with a couple of friends, they also do the same and so you'll all see each of you looking at the mirror which sometimes feels quite funny cause everyone's so vain. But one thing that I fond funny is when some guys pass by the car and they use the car's windows to fix their hair or try to check out themselves, without even realizing that there are/is people inside the car looking at them... haha... usually when the windows are tinted.

I don't look into a mirror outside except in the toilet because it is weird for a guy to keep looking into a mirror. I set my hair with hairspray before leaving the house so I don't need to keep looking into mirror all the time. But for ladies I guess mirror are more important as to make sure the makeup stay in shape. But no no...mirror is not for you to show your makeup skills in public! By doing that is trying to tell me that you have poor time management and unable to finish your makeup before leaving the house. So a mirror means differently to guys and ladies, I guess.

Yes it doesn't look nice for women to always be looking at the mirror when outside. Once in a while is okay just to see to it that she still looks fine, but doing retouch in public is not so polite. As for guys, there's not much problem.

I guess its a natural reaction for everyone to check themselves out whenever there's an opportunity to do so. You don't want to be looking odd with a stray hair or a stain in your clothes or dirt in your body. A quick look and a quick fix is alright. What really annoys me are those who have these handy mirrors, what do you call them..., compactors?, and are forever looking at their faces and touching up.

Haha, yeah I hated that too. I never carried one of those. As I remember I had some classmates back in college who were so vain, that whenever I turn to look at them, it is either they are re-fixing their hair, or checking out their make up on their compact mirrors or powdering their nose. They do it a lot! Which is why it is quite annoying.

Yes I tend to do that. It's not really that I'm vain, it's just that I want to make sure I look ok because I am paranoid about that. Lol. I also want to make sure I don't have something on my face that I don't know about. I'm just curious about how I look lol.
