Getting my life together

So, I suppose it's time for me to start having an adult life. No, not like that you weirdos.  It is time for me to get my act together and stuff. Probably should stop using stuff as a descriptive word if I want this adult thing to stick.

First thing I have done in order to get my life together: I threw away all my makeup I bought during the Bush Administration. Ew. Just think about all the nasty germies and other microbes that are crawling around in there, especially if you ever use your fingers as an applicator.

Then, I threw away all my mascara and started over with new ones. Docs say you shouldn't use any makeup that touches your eye for more than six months. That means I need to sharpen all my eye pencils anyway. It's nice to take a moment when you're not frantically trying to get dressed to put a fresh point on the eye pencils. They work so much better that way.

You should do this, too. Go, I'll wait. If you don't have any mascara, you should buy some. Just some nice brownish-black, a tinted moisturizing sunscreen and a neutral lip gloss and you'll feel like a whole new person.

And if you're a boy, well...go throw away all your underwear and buy new ones. Probably socks, too.

My mascara is fresh and my eye pencils are sharp so I bought some pretty new skin highlighter today. Makeup artists say that is just the thing to make sleepy mommies look awake and perky. I will take any excuse I can to browse in the makeup department!

Which brand did you get? You'll have to let me know if you like it or not. I was looking at those last week.

My mascara is Rimmel Extra Wow! Lash (sometimes the tube yells MOM! out to me when it is upside down on the counter and that amuses me) I use Lise Watier waterproof eye pencils (LOVE) and the highlighter is Joe Fresh brand, which I am not sure is available where you are since it is a Canadian brand. http://www.joefresh.com/en/product/highlighter I have the Champagne and Ice colours and so far I am having fun with them--Ice for the under the arch of my eyebrow and inner corner of my eye and Chamgagne for my cheekbones and Cupid's Bow. They say you should put it on the bridge of your nose too, but my nose doesn't need any further attention called to it! I would say try it as it gives you a brighter look without it being really obvious you have done anything. I have noticed that the use of highlighter requires you to have nicely groomed brows.

wow, that was an epic reply. What can I say? I love playing with makeup!
