I rarely wear a full face of makeup any more. It is just a waste of time and expensive chemicals to paint a face that never steps out the door. So, unless I am going someplace where my appearance is an important part of the outing, I just don’t wear it any more.
But today I had to go to a restaurant to meet friends who used to work with me. I wanted to fit in with them, as they are all still gainfully employed and still have to dress to impress.
So I dug out my makeup bag from the dresser drawer and commenced to applying makeup to my face. Sadly, some of the makeup has actually turned bad – the foundation bottle that I used burned my face, made it itch and caused a rash. So I had to toss that out and wash it off. Then the eyeliner was so dried out and clumpy that I could not use it. And then the lipstick burned my lips. The whole exercise was a disaster!
