It takes a lot of work to be Melania Trump.
She wants to make sure she can handle that work by putting in a very specific kind of room in the White House.
And no, I'm not talking about the work of being wife to a tantrum-throwing man-child.
I'm talking about the work of looking like Melania looks every day.
Melania's makeup artist Nicole Bryl said that it takes a full one hour and 15 minutes "of interrupted focus" to completely do the former model's beauty look.
Because of the hard work that goes into making Trump look as porcelain as she does, the Trumps are dedicating a room in the White House to be Melania's glam room.
Bryl told Us Weekly,
There will absolutely be a room designated for hair, makeup, and wardrobe.
Bryl explained the glam room further, saying,
Melania wants a room with the most perfect lighting scenario, which will make our jobs as a creative team that much more efficient, since great lighting can make or break any look.
To be honest, I've always kind of questioned the usefulness of having incredible lighting while doing your makeup.
Of course, I'm no makeup expert, but I just figure you don't have that perfect lighting everywhere you go, so wouldn't you rather do your makeup with lighting that resembles where you'll be?
For a millennial New Yorker like myself whose income necessitates the frequenting of dive bars, that generally means extremely minimal lighting. Like, no light will make that highlighter shine lighting. Like, no one will be able to see your lipstick color lighting. Like, why are you even bothering lighting?
OK, fine, Melania and I clearly have different public appearance standards.
It's not unusual for a new first family to change up the White House. President Barack Obama, for instance, added a basketball court.
If it were up to me, I'd just make one giant nap room with a ton of pillows and fluffy comforters. Actually, Melania, if you ever read this, can you do that and invite me over?
