Maybe She's Born With It



So, I know in that slogan they are referring to the woman's beauty, but as this post is about me I certainly am not referring to being born with that (see above. that's me with allergy eyes.). I'm talking about being born with makeup.

Long ago I posted about my love of make up and mentioned my "natural eye make up". Today, I blog about it. Lucky you.

With my glasses on I sort of might as well not have any eyes at all for all you can actually see them. But if you could, you might notice (but most likely wouldn't) that I wear way too much make up on my eyes. Especially the corners of my eyes. Except that I don't.

I won't go into the story, but once my sister refused to believe that I hadn't put my make up on yet in the morning, even when I told her that I only wear mascara and it was obvious I didn't have any of that on. (which reminded me of the time as a kid that I didn't believe her when she told me she wasn't wearing fake eyelashes)

Here is a picture that shows rather well, without me having an actual picture taken of my eyes for this post. I'm sort of against taking pictures of myself (or most other things) strictly to be posted here. I don't know why, but that's how it is. So anyway, when I saw this picture I thought, "Oh! There you can see it!" and decided to post it.



So now I'll be a little ridiculous and suggest that you look at my eyelids in the picture above. That will be difficult a) because there is a RATHER cute baby to look at and b) because the picture was taken in the shade and it's not that easy to see the details.

You may be able to see that it looks like I have brown eye shadow on my lids and a darker shade in the corners. Those blasted corners.

I'm not saying this is a great thing, it's just a thing. A thing that means that my self has decided what color of make up I get to wear, whether I like it or not. I do use cover up on the edges sometimes and apply a different color of shadow but usually I go brown.

Anyway. When it comes to eye make up, for some people it may be Maybelline, but I, for one, was born with it.

You seriously are adorable. No kidding. I wear big thick eyeliner on my top lid for drama, and keep my brows plucked, and that is my big statement. You have perfect skin and teeth. I may hate you!

You are too cute! And I don't just mean in your pictures. I can definitely see the "born with it" make up. Congrats on that! And I LOVE the way you made that fit with the popular Maybelline slogan. Totally made me giggle!

Erin said...

Wow, you are lucky! Most people would pay lots of money to have that tattooed on! And that boy is definitely irresistibly cute, I could barely tear my eyes away to study you eyelids.

Erin said...

All I ever wear is mascara too, but I'm not as lucky as you in the "my eyes look like I am wearing makeup" department. You are so cute, by the way!

You're so funny. And pretty. :)

I, for one, use maybeline. Hope you blessed your girls with the same genetic make-up. No pun intended:)

I love these pictures. I noticed this last picture on facebook. and it stood out to me right away that you make wonderful eyemakeup. Talking about appereance, it reminds me of what you looked like some nine or eight years ago. I remember watching you with long hair, carring your child. It was so cute. And it tells me that 10 years make a difference. You look really mature. I hope it sounds like a compliment.:)

Cool. Really. I think that's great! It's truly natural and looks great AND saves time :)

I've noticed lately that my eyelids look orange - both in the mirror and in pictures. I live in fear that someone will comment on my crazy choice of eye makeup someday, and think I have no taste. No, I just go au naturel, and look orange. Maybe we could start beauty therapy together.

Lara said...

Aha! It's people like you that make people like me have to suffer trying to achieve your natural look. :)

You're beautiful.

Melissa Bastow said...

I have that dark make-up-y eye look too....except that it's under my eyes. Which really makes it not the same thing at all.

Why don't I already know this about you? I guess I just thought you always slept in your makeup to impress me in the morning. :)

Brown goes with everything. Much better than being born with a lot of natural red around your eyes. You're a very pretty girl!
