I love mascara. Always have. I have not worn it in sooo long...not since having my cornea transplant nearly five years ago. I missed it. Sounds like a silly thing to miss but what can I say...I am a bit of a girly-girl.
See, here's the thing...as much as I love mascara and have worn it since I was around 15, I have a bad habit of poking myself in the eye with the wand! So even though my doctor assured me I could still wear eye make-up I was afraid. Afraid of poking my new cornea!
Well, folks, guess what?! I am 40 and I am not afraid any more! I will no longer fear the wand! I am a fabulous and fearless women and dammit I want long, thick, lush lashes!!!
So...this past Saturday I did it! I successfully applied mascara for the first time in almost five years and I did NOT poke myself in the eye!
Annnddd....I did it again on Sunday! And today!
Annnnddd...Saturday night and Sunday night I successfully washed it off, too! And it is waterproof so I had to break out eye makeup remover!
How freakin fabulous am I???!!!
It's the little things, people. It's the little things!
