I know getting older means I can't just dash out the door looking fabulous anymore. I mean, I could, and I would still look awesome [because I am awesome] but I'm also a fan of make up sometimes [and nail polish all the time - I am a feminist and I CHOOSE to wear Aphrodite's Pink Nightie on my nails, motherfuckers] and I have found, lately, that I have to do something I never thought I would have to do.
I have to apply eyebrows.
Let me clarify:
I have excellent eyebrows. They are nicely shaped and nicely colored and cover my whole eye area. I am one of the very, very, very lucky few who has never had to pluck any part of my eyebrow. They don't meet in the middle. They don't grow down into my lid. They're nice.
Except for the sparsifying.
I don't get it. I mean, I'm growing random eyebrow-ish hairs on my chin. Are they confused and don't know the way to my eyebrows? And how am I losing eyebrow hairs? Do I need Rogaine?
I've found a lovely eyebrow powder that I apply and I love that my eyebrows look fuller and more like they did back before the random eyebrow hairs decided to go in for early retirement, but . . .
I just can't believe I have to think to myself, "I need to go put on my eyebrows."
Is there anything you do routinely now in terms of making yourself fabulous that you can't believe? I'm kind of thinking of wearing a powdered wig. Or an eye patch.
