I have rosacea in my eye which means I have to be tricky with my eye cleaning. Weird, yep, I know, but every night I have to make sure my eyes are super duper clean or they get all gross and gammy. So I avoid wearing a lot of eye make up on most days because it's a pain in the hiney.
When we went to the wedding a few weeks ago, I bought my first tube of mascara in over a year. Whoa nelly, I am crazy like that, but I realised I had been missing the mascara.
I love make-up. I am a self-confessed lover of make-up. So when I went cold turkey with mascara and tossed it to the kerb, it was a sad day.
But lately I've been thinking of false lashes. I love the look of them. Really. Love. The. Look. While dying my lashes is dandy, I already have black lashes, so I don't really see any effect. But fake eyelashes, or extensions, my oh my, me likey! Alas and alack, I do not have even the faintest idea how to apply these suckers myself, and would be worried that half my eyelashes would fall off in the middle of a meeting, giving me a jaunty-eyed look. Or fall into my cup of coffee and then I'd drink them and then be left with a milky eyelashy mo. Hawt.
I really, really want eyelash extensions. But my budget does not.
I think this is a 'first-world problem'. Uh huh.
