WWL: Cat Eye.

Over the past few months, I've been forced to embrace being pale. I had a little scaresie with the ol' dermatologist and a mean mole (not to be confused with my chocolate mole) and I am now avoiding UV rays like the plague.

On top of THAT, I just have really sensitive skin and so basically I can't get self tanners unless it is a professional spray and I just can't afford that all the time, you know because I am thrifty [lazy] SO what I am TRYING to tell you is that I am embracing my fair skin and going with it. [If you happen to have a great facial sunless tanner that is good for problematic skin like mine, hook it up.] 

SO, the first thing I learned with this new, nearly translucent, face is that a lot of heavy, shimmery eye makeup is not a good recipe. It looks really bad. I have been WISHING for an alternate solution. Based on my research- fair skinned gals look put together with a cat eye. I am a little makeup challenged, so the below image helped it make more sense:
See how the line follows the curve of your lower lid? Makes sense, right?? So I tried to do it myself [failed], and really just wished it was a little easier and I had more explanation. This video, courtesy of The Beauty Department, was way beyond helpful.


I have found that it takes good liquid liner [we'll get to my favorites in the coming weeks], a steady hand, and a lot of practice. AND I also have found that I am not consistently good at it yet. Somedays, I look like Cleopatra, others- it looks like a Sharpie had its way with me. So, I wish there was a way to cover up my face all together when I can't figure out how to put on eyeliner like a grown up. Perhaps these precious cat eye glasses?

Problem solved.

  3. Are you in a dilemma that whether you should try sleepSEE or the ever known process Lasik? SleepSEE is nonsurgical, costs less than that of lasik and is 100% effective and also provides clear-comfortable vision. If you have any more queries, you can visit this link and clarify yourself. Ortho k or lasik restore

  4. And even though prosthetic eyes are manufactured and composed of acrylic, the artisan elements, which were so proudly defined by the German craftsmen of the late 1800s and early 1900s, still remain.
