Yesterday I woke up with a terrible headache. It was so bad I considered taking a sick day and crawling back in bed. Instead, I decided to punish the world and trudge on. I thought all day that I looked weird but figured it was because I felt sick. Around 6:30 last night as we cooked dinner, Jason looked at me and asked, “What’s different about you?” I had no idea what he meant. He then nonchalantly said, “Oh, you didn’t put eyeliner on your left eye.” He thought I was experimenting. I was oblivious. None of my coworkers noticed (or they declined to confront me) but I can’t shake the feeling that I walked around all day yesterday looking like this:
Tonight I’m driving to my parents’ house as soon as I leave work. I will be in a rush so I packed my bags this morning. I didn’t want to pack my entire makeup arsenal because it’s such a quick trip so I mentally checked off the things I would NEED. I found it difficult to leave some things behind but thought to myself- what if I could ONLY take five items?
In lieu of my normal Five on Friday post, I’m going to get real: If, for whatever convoluted reason imaginable, you could only choose FIVE makeup items to use forever, which items would make the cut?
Here are my chosen items:
Garnier BB Cream Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector: it moisturizes and I can wear it without foundation!
Liquid Black Eyeliner (I don’t have a favorite)
Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder
I’m fickle but those are my choices today! What are your picks?
