Maybe I need Carmen Electra's help after all... [Mar. 6th, 2008|02:37 pm]
Here's a beauty tip for all you gals...or guys who wear eye make-up.

If you find yourself in the car, about to put on your make-up and you look in the mirror and gasp! you never used your special eye make-up remover pads to get rid of the mascara raccoon eyes and now you're headed to work. And saliva is NOT working. (I've never understood why you'd design a product that just washes off of where you want it to be, but clings desperately to places you never wanted it. No, wait, because you also manufacture the remover-product)

And you're thinking, well, if I put the make-up on over this, I'll look like I have a black eye, and have to explain it, AND explain why I don't have a black eye the next day....If I walk in without make-up, the odds that I can get upstairs and to the ladies room to wash the old stuff off before anyone else sees me are...nonexistent.

Just so you know: Windex window cleaner wipes will take off mascara circles -- and oddly enough, don't make your skin gross.

(For those of you who are thinking -- I can't believe you put your makeup on in the car, you're one of THOSE drivers -- calm down. I have one traffic light where I have to sit through three 3-minute cycles usually, before I get through it. I only apply while at a complete stop. Besides, I saw YOU picking your nose the other day while you were driving. What is it with people nostril-mining while they drive?)

and the lovely ammonia smell works well if you have "the vapors" :-)

Sigh. The only person I've ever seen have mascara/eyeliner not misbehave is Johnny Depp and he had a huge crew of experts to help him, of course. He's way prettier than Carmen Electra and looks great with raccoon eyes. Or without them...

Because they can go sinus-exploring without taking their eyes off of the road... so I've heard.

Make that sinus-spelunking. Damn my eagerness to hit the "Post Comment" button too soon!

I was not sinus-spelunking, I was looking for the on-switch to my Bluetooth earpiece.

Turnip, dear, might I suggest you invest in baby wipes for your car? Pampers makes some lovely lavender-scented ones that I think you'll like.

I don't go anywhere without them.

I've always been afraid that I might mistakenly attract a baby...

And THAT would be horrible!

No, no. Babies hate baby wipes. Haven't you noticed that they always scream when you wipe their butts? Oh, maybe you haven't. Trust me, they do. You could probably market them as baby repellent.
