Get Pretty

Allie is really good at doing makeup.

Hi Girlfriends!  I thought maybe I’d write about something besides food for once…

Over the summer I found myself being sucked into the vortex that is known in the pop-culture world as “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”  They ran a few marathons over Labor Day weekend, and, looking back on it now, I realize that I must have somehow fallen under some kind of spell.  I was bewitched.  I must have been.  The show has no redeeming quality whatsoever aside from the visual orgy of clothes, hair, makeup, and big boobs.  I believe the focal point, the eye of the storm, if you will, the source of this enchantment, to be Kim Kardashian’s eyelashes.  They hypnotize.  They are otherworldly.  You can’t turn away.  They fascinate, and delight.

Of course I know they aren’t real.

And in the starry-eyed swoon they cast over me,  I found myself tinkering around with falsies.  They were fun for a while but they aren’t practical for every day and they kinda did a number on the lashes that God did give me.

So, my quest began for a mascara that could make me feel like an A-list celebrity on a red carpet, even though my glamorous world mostly consists of doing dishes, laundry, and cleaning up poopy diapers.

This week I picked up a tube of Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes.

It has a funky-shaped wand, really full at the bottom and really tapered at the tip.

It really gets into that inner corner.  This is just what I need as my eyes tend to look squinty.  The formula is great, just enough thickening without getting all clumpy, and really really lengthening.  It really wide-opens up my eyes.  Try it!

you’d never guess I was up half the night with a squirmy rugrat


You are getting very….. very….. sleeeeeeeeeepyyyyy…..
