Lashes

You can't even see them in these pictures, but I donned a pair of fake lashes with this getup. I seem to have inherited only one Asian feature: straight (and short) eyelashes. I've had more than one makeup artist make a vain effort to curl them, and instead give me a set of falsies. I wish I had the patience to wear them on a daily basis, but I rarely bother. Naturally, on the one day that I wear them I forgot to take a picture. Go figure!

I spent the early part of the day working with my intern  and the rest with Peter, Samara and Bobby. I'm kitty-sitting Peter's cats, Madeline and Mathilde, while he's in Paris. We did what we do best - watched ridiculous youtube videos, ate a lot of food and made good conversations. I feel like Peter and I are subtle enablers...we seem to always eat onion rings or cupcakes when we're together. Thanks, Peter!

    I bought the mascara! I even got one for my mom. While I think it's great and I'm fascinated by the tube things...it doesn't really matter what I use, because my lashes aren't even visible and can't be curled. I usually use it, though:)

  5. I WANT that SKIRT!
    I don't know if they still make it, but I used to buy Ardell permanent lash glue and use their little lash-clusters- 'sweeties' I think is what they're called- just at the corners of my natural lashes, and it would last for about a week. You have to comb them though, and you remove them using another concoction, that smells like nailpolish remover.

  20. Great use of colours!
    Fake eyelashes are such a performance, I have quite a few different styles of them but it takes me a good half an hour and my errors before I get them right.
