**** I wrote the below post yesterday to post today. And I think maybe vanity caught up with me. I wound up in the ER at 4 this morning with a staph infection on my face. One side of my face is Super swollen - I look like an ape. It started with something in my nose yesterday afternoon and grew really fast. If I hadn't gone to the dr when I did I would probably be in the hospital. I would show y'all a picture of me but I'm too vain. ha! I just think it's funny that I wrote the post below and now I look like some kind of crazy person today.*****
I have these tiny slits for eyes. They are dirt brown and small and I barely have any eyelid and my eyebrow is 10 miles above my little eyes.
I'm not saying this to put myself down. It's just the truth. I'm so envious of people who have big blue or green eyes and big eyelids. (and brown eyes are pretty too - I just don't love mine.) (But I'm thankful I have eyes and I can see - I promise I'm getting to a point).
Now - I'm not having a pity party - I'm just setting the scene. I have never been able to do my eye make-up. I have tried everything on earth to try to make it look like I had some kind of eyes on my face. Every kind of mascara. FAIL.
So one day I saw my friend Angie Smith tweeting about this amazing eye shadow palette and how there were all these you tube videos that told you how to put it on.
And the sun came out and the lights shown bright and the heavens opened up and my world was changed. I'm not even kidding I ran myself straight to Sephora and bought it. It was my Valentines present to myself.
And I want to add - I'm SO not pushing the eyeshadow - I just really like it. BUT I think you could easily find much cheaper versions with lots of colors and use the you tube videos to help. The videos are REALLY what has helped me!!!
