So I'm not quite sure if this will be a reoccurring series or a one time occurrance. My intention is to highlight my ridiculousness and to hopefully cause you to laugh.
Today's failure is my preferred way to apply mascara.
I never quite understood the proper way to apply mascara. I came up with the Kelley Method (I'm going to make this a trademark!) and it has worked for me ever since I could start wearing it!
Here are the steps involved in the Kelley Method:
1. Liberally apply mascara to lashes and well pretty much any skin remotely close to the eyelash. (And you must do it with a smile on your face!)2. This is post application (notice the black dot by my eye, that was apparently close to the eyelash area). From here you can either go try to scare small children or get ready for step #3!
3. Take a washable makeup remover (my preferred is maybelline Expert Eyes) and 2 Q-Tips. Soak both sides of the Q-tips in the makeup remover.
4. Using the Q-tips clean up the mascara from around the eye area. I typically use 1 Q-Tip to clean 1 eye and use the other for the opposite eye. (please pardon my big fat flaring nostrils!)
5. And Ta Da! here's the finished product. I've stuck with this method since the 7th grade. I particularly like it because it gives you the eye liner look, without have to use eyeliner (I don't have the steadiest hand, so I tend to poke my eye when I try the eye liner business)
I like my method, as much as I try to do it the "right" way, I just keep on coming back!
