You'd think

that after almost fifteen years of wearing mascara,
I'd be fairly good at putting it on ....

As long as you've perfected the warm water and q-tip clean up you really don't have to ever perfect the mascara thing... believe me, I'm with you on that one (when I actually decide to wear makeup).

MommyJ said...

I'm with Amy! I could never wear makeup without q-tips... they save me at least twice every time I put makeup on.

Well, it doesn't look THAT bad. Heehee.

Megan said...

Goin' for it with gusto I see! *giggle* We all do it...

wonder woman said...

My eyes look like that after application almost everyday. Because to get the full lengthening effect, you must apply on the back/top, near the eyelid.

I think you're doing it just right.

Such an aaarrrrghhhh moment!

gigi said...

I have days like that too :)
BTW, I'm not going either!!!!

Melissa Bastow said...

Now I feel like a dweeb because I always have WAY more mascara than that on my eyelids after I've applied it. In fact, I have to put on mascara before I put on anything else because it gets all over. And sometimes it's so bad that I just add some eyeliner to it and viola, Emo eyes!

p.s. I'm breaking the rules and my comment for you last post is: I don't think you're skinny. You're pregnant and if you were skinny I would officially hate you. And I don't, so there's no way you're skinny. Also, I like books too. And I'm a wallflower. And I think when I meet the handful of people I can actually drag to my blog they're going to see what a real geekwad I am, and then I'll have to find 4 all new readers.

I hate when I out my mascara on and then I sneeze. Ugh What a mess!

Lara said...

This post just made me feel like a million dollars.

It's apparently a dirty little secret: NONE of us knows how to apply mascara without making a mess.

Thank goodness for Q-tips!

You'd think that after 1500 times of being asked to not grab your leg while you're putting on mascara, kids might actually remember it...?

DeNae said...

There was a time - years, in fact - when my mascara tube lived in my car. Because that was where I applied it...in my car, while I drove.

Now, I'm more cautious than that. I do my makeup at home so both my hands are available to text while I'm driving.

It's all about priorities.

The Prices said...

HA! I'm so getting that prescription stuff that will actually give me eyelashes and I plan to never put mascara on again.

Kimberly said...

My eyelids always go all spastic when I try to put on mascara and it ends up everywhere.

Somehow, I think you're cute enough to pull that look off though...

Vanessa said...

That's funny right there!

Tobi said...

At least after you apply mascara you can actually see your lashes. My lashes are invisible no matter what I do. When are they going to invent eyelash implants. They have them for everything else by thunder!

Mommadj5 said...

Janel - I'm with you - are the kids pulling your legs daughter??? Ok, anyone who wants to know how to properly apply mascara can email me (that girl can forward, right sweetie?), I am horrified that anyone would put mascara on the TOP of the eyelash!! P.S. I have been a make-up artist for 17 years and teach classes, but obviously that girl needs a new lesson! :-) Love you darlin'....

Katy said...

K your picture was the best part of my day.

I've always thought I was make-up challenged because I get mascara on my eyelids AND contacts every. single. time. Plus my eyelashes are stubby. But then I read the comments here and I realize I am not alone in the world.

LisAway said...

Let's just make that look fashionable! Why not? It's a great eyelid decoration. Then we wouldn't have to use shadow (although some of us rarely ever do anyway).

I'm breaking your "no comment" rule on your last post. I'm undecided about CBC, too. If I change my mind, wanna be my roommate? :)

Your eyes look lovely, by the way. I still can't round-brush my hair without having to cut the blasted, twisted thing out of my head.

Bethany said...

Hehe...and that's why I don't wear mascara. I'd get it everywhere!

elesa said...

ha ha hhaa! I am way behind the times but this just cracked me up! Thank you. I can't stop laughing.
