Then! The very next week, I attended a Girl Scouts sleepover at the Long Beach Aquarium, which meant sleeping on the floor and getting up at 6 am. That morning, there was a mom from a different troop who was sitting at breakfast, curling her eyelashes. And that was all she was doing. She didn’t bother with foundation or liner or even lipstick. She simply curled her eyelashes. Of all the beauty routines and rituals she found important and necessary, the eyelash curler was obviously of paramount importance.
So that really got me thinking! Perhaps I had been too quick to judge and needed to give my curler another chance to redeem itself. Turns out, I had been doing it all wrong. Per usual, I had been rushing through my routine in the car, and was haphazardly curling my lashes, using the curler all wrong. These things take precision and patience, and now I’ve figured out that to achieve eyelash curler success, one must get the entire length of the lash into the archaic looking contraption, and press down for not 1 or 2 seconds, but for at least 10 seconds, to get a proper curl. And lest you forget to do it before mascara application, fuhget about it. Curling after mascara, at least in my case, only leads to clumping and even the pulling out of some lashes.
So my curler and I are back in business and are enjoying each other immensely.
Lastly, see in that photo above, my lipstick is rather bright? I’m feeling the need to move on from bright and bold lips, to a softer shade. Thinking of soft pink nude tones, and found this post that offers a plethora of suggestions. This chick really seems to dig her nude lip colors, because those are all hers. See any below, you personally like? Where on earth do I even start. I know it’s a pretty narrowed down selection, but wowzers!on Pinterest. Also, always feel free to give suggestions on hair and beauty prodcuts I should be trying, because as my friend Amber knows, I’m an easy sell and will take anything you tell me as gospel.
Hope you all are having a good week! Anyone chopped off their hair lately, or thinking about it?
