I booked an appointment for a makeup make over in October - which I had to cancel cause that was when the gallbladder started acting up and I was in no shape for make overs of any sort!
Well here it is 6 months later (about 30 pounds lighter) and I look at my face - especially when I am going out somewhere (I do clean up rather nicely) and scowl...... and yes I know scowling should not be done - it creates wrinkles (but at this point in my life - it is too late to worry about wrinkles!!)
The one thing I hate about my face (well one of the things) are my eyebrows. I had the odd characteristic when I went through menopause of losing most of my body hair and gaining it in other places. My eyebrows - which used to be thick and arched (naturally) and a nice blond brown colour - have changed into long spikes of hair of indeterminate colour that won't be beaten into submission. I can pluck and trim and lather with crazy glue to get them to lie down.......but within an hour or so they start to spring up and out and I look like some crazy lady with spiky eyebrows!!!
This past week - on one of my shopping trips - I discovered a new makeup joint at the local farmer's market mall. I wandered in and before I knew it - I had booked an appointment for a makeup makeover that will include what to do with these damn eyebrows !!!! I am going this morning........
I half wonder if it won't be a waste of time and money. I tend to prefer no makeup - except for a little eyeliner and mascara. But what the hey!!! Maybe she will work wonders on this old face and have me looking like I belong on the cover of some magazine. What I do hope she can work wonders on .... are my eyebrows.
I have taken a "before" shot........ and I will take an "after" shot - hopefully there will be a difference !!
Ohhhhhhhhhh Vanity - thy name is woman!
