I had a little free time, a coupon to Ulta and the best of intentions, so I set out to purchase everything needed to make me a new me. I didn't play with it last night, because I was out running errands until suppertime, and who wants to wash their face and re-apply makeup shortly before time to cleanse the face for the night? Certainly not me. So I saved all of my play time until today.
This morning I had to take Mom to the doctor at 8, so I just put on my regular (almost nothing) face and went about the day until about noon. Then it was time for the New Me! Well, 42 dollars and 45 minutes of contouring and buffing later, following all of Wayne's very simple instructions, I looked nothing like the lovely Mandy in the video. Instead of looking refreshed and revitalized I found myself looking a tad more like this.
I considered my options and came up with the following choices:
1. I need a lot more practice and a lighter hand/different plan.
2. I should just give up on it all together and look gross all the time.
3. I should cease all spending, live a Spartan existence and save every penny for a really good plastic surgeon.
4. Accept the fact that I am not a kid anymore and be happy for the opportunity to sit at the grown up's table.
Right this minute I am leaning heavily toward option number 1.
Now I have to run wash this
