Every morning (well, almost every morning), I spend 3.5 minutes putting on make-up: under eye concealer (very necessary!), some mineral powder, a bit of blush, eyeshadow, and some eye-liner and mascara. In the end, you can’t really tell I’m wearing make-up, but I do look less tired.  Marc likes the natural look and I’m not bold enough to wear lots of make-up, so it all works out.

Except sometimes I wonder how I would look if I wore more make-up. For weddings or Christmas Eve, etc I’ve tried to do the “smokey-eye”, but it just looks like I have slightly more make-up on, and once my glasses are on you can hardly even tell; in the end I look like most women in their everyday make-up.

Tonight after supper I decided to see what I’d look like with eyeliner on my bottom lid. I’ve never done it before, but it can look really nice on some women. However, because I’m not used to eyeliner on the bottom lid, it felt uneven, so I threw more eyeliner on my top lid. Plus add in the fact that I have really dark circles under my eyes… and well… I’m just warning you: it looks horrible! (As I’m writing this, Luke keeps coming by saying, “Mommy, I thought you were going to put your eyes back the way they’re supposed to be.”) Plus, add in the fact that one of my eyes is a little more closed than the other (a la Melissa Joan Hart), and, ya, this video gives me no compliments.

But. You will see the kids’ expressions every time I took my glasses off. Every time. It was very loud. But very funny. Enjoy.

    Ahhh, this made my whole night 🙂 I feel that your smokey eye should not be with black. Oh, the fun we could have doing a make up day together!

  2. Nicole says:

    I mean to say, but dependent on your eye color – blue? or green? I can’t be sure from the video – a smokey eye in the right shade of purple or navy would be delish!

  3. That would be very fun. Next time we get together, let’s do it!

    Oh, and tonight wasn’t a smokey eye. That requires more eye shadow, right? Tonight was just gobbing on black eyeliner as fast as I could (and hiding my face from Marc when he came into the bathroom to see what I was doing). It really does look horrible.

    I love Madeline’s face during the second scream…priceless!

    For the record, I don’t think the eyeliner looks horrible…it’s just more make-up than one is used to seeing on you.

    I know it always looks freaky to me when I do my bottom lid as well but I actually thought it looked pretty good too! Probably not an everyday look but I certainly wouldn’t be afraid to do it up for a nice night out. Have fun with it!

    Now THAT made me laugh…and laugh hard.

    Quite the eyeballs!!! I like them…

    funny video 🙂 you guys are cute.

    also, I like how it looks without your glasses. a lot!

    also also, generally the “experts” will say that if you wear glasses, don’t focus your makeup on your eyes. it will just get lost behind the lenses anyway. what you should really be doing is focusing on your lips! and you have beautiful, full lips so I can totally see a great shade of lipstick really glamming up your look!
