This short video by Planktoon entitled Reflexion may only be 4 minutes, but it cuts to the core of what it's like to be a woman getting ready for an evening out. Whether it's just a bad hair day or your eyeliner just seems to want to play difficult, every woman has experienced one of those days where their beauty routine just becomes derailed.

Following a fire-haired woman as she preps herself for a night out with her man, it shows the vixen rush home, shower and then dress. She sits down at her vanity to do her makeup after browsing through fashion magazines and finding some inspiration only to find that it's impossible for her to replicate. This internal struggle to reflect the girls in the fashion magazine quickly becomes a comical physical struggle with her own reflection.
