It was a theme party in the heart of Dubai. It was an outdoor event and the weather was hot and humid. As per the theme, I dolled up and my glamour was so on point. I was sure that I was looking ravishing at the party, then I bumped into the mirror. This was the time when the truth was unveiled to me that I was actually looking horrendous. My foundation was washed off due to excessive sweating and only the remains of my makeup was left on my face. I felt so embarrassed and decided that I would not let this happen to me again.
