Hillary jokes about ‘daily challenge’ of hair, makeup

Hillary Clinton says her hair and makeup routine is “a daily challenge.”

The Democratic presidential frontrunner and former secretary of State participated in a Facebook Q&A on Monday, answering a handful of wide-ranging questions from users.

Britain added, “as a young professional woman, I’d genuinely love to hear about how you manage getting ready each morning.”

Clinton replied, “Amen sister — you’re preaching to the choir. It’s a daily challenge. I do the best I can — and as you may have noticed, some days are better than others!”

The former first lady has made a habit in recent months of using self-deprecating humor when mentioning her appearance. She told a crowd in May, “I’ve been coloring my hair for years.

“So you’re not going to see me turn white in the White House,” Clinton said to applause.

The 2016 hopeful — who dubs herself a “pantsuit aficionado” in her Twitter profile — also weighed in on her signature style.

Asked if she had a favorite pantsuit, Clinton, 67, responded, “I never met a pantsuit I didn’t love.” She then plugged her campaign website’s store, which is selling a $30 Clinton-inspired “Everyday Pantsuit Tee.”
