I think you are the only person I've ever seen who wears more eyeliner than I do, and that's only because I cannot possibly figure out how to cram more on. Someone should make you a trophy. Entirely out of eyeliner.
Ha! The lighting in my office does make it look like I have on EVEN more, but I do not hold back in terms of the liner. This is a new one too. It is an Estee Lauder in "jet black". I love the rockstar liner. I feel very '80's chic.
I'm too blonde to pull off jet black except on very rare occasions. My very favorite eyeliner is Avon's Glimmersticks (although Revlon has a pretty close approximation). It's a creamy twist-up stick that's a lot like the whole stick-the-pencil-on-a-lightbulb trick, but without the mess. I've never tried the Estee Lauder liner, but I did have a pretty heavy Clinique habit there for awhile.
Oooh, that sounds fun. I'll try the glimmersticks. Maybe I'll beg for more glittery eyeliner for Christmas.
I like those glasses. You look "bright" and playful today. Hope that means it's a low pain day! :-)
Nope, it just means I fixed the lighting after taking the pictures and have on more makeup. I wish! Makeup SHOULD take away the pain I think. :)
I didn't just mean the bright color, but more the relaxed ease and bright energy that *seems* to be coming through.
Sorry it's more of "masking the pain" rather than "no pain" kinda deal.
I have had some ongoing pain the last few days, and I can tell you, I am CRANKY. I just can't imagine dealing with something like this chronically. I think I would go insane. Kudos to you for how well you hold it together.
I will say, I feel better in general when I like my make-up. I started using mineral make up (first Sheer Cover, now Bare Essensuals) earlier this year and I just LOVE it. My skin looks so much better now than it did last year. It probably helps that I am so much healthier, too. Not eating all the crap I was then, getting more water, etc. So, although the makeup doesn't take the pain away, it probably helps you feel as good as it gets given the pain.
I'm in the Bare mInerals today! Maybe that is it! First day wearing the real "brand name" stuff. :)
It's the mineral veil. It smooths everything out. I feel glowy in it.
I go through twice as much mineral veil as the foundation. I decided I am ok with that. :-)
Thank you! It's serious. Internets are srs business.
I agree. It says "there is a powerful 'No Effing Around Zone' surrounding me".
Truly, serious business.
I'm loving the hair today.
Thank you! It is straight (just like me), but not narrow. ;)
You look beautiful and tiny. We need to figure out a way to get more meat on your bones lady!! But you are always breathtakingly beautiful.
*grins* I'm feeling better now that I'm on less cymbalta! I have actually put on 5lbs, and I'm trying to keep it on. Thank you, you totally made me smile and it's been a rough day.
Thank you! I'm advertising my new Bare Minerals makeup and eyeshadow for you guys in that photo.
