If Not Now.......When.....

Eyeliner is both my nemesis and my beloved. It's the Frenemy of my makeup bag.

When I started wearing eyeliner, it was so long ago that you mixed your Mary Kay eyeshadow with water and you used a lighter on the eyeliner to make it melty and go on smoothly.

As a matter of fact - I'm bringing that back so get ready.

But beyond that, I've had what alcoholics call THE MOMENT OF CLARITY regarding eyeliner.

Since I was 16 I have been struggling with, fighting with, sometimes failing sometimes succeeding in getting my eyeliner on in a nice smooth line without tugging on the corner of my eye to pull the skin taught. You eyeliner wearers know what I am talking about. You don't want to get wrinkles! When you get older you'll get wrinkles if you tug on that skin every day!

And then, as I struggled the other morning .......it occurred to me........


What the hell I'm 40 dear GOD can I please have perfect straight eyeliner now until I die?


Note to all my friends. We're older. You can tug on the corner of your eye now to get your liner straight. It's over.
