And then, I took my prescription grade cocaine, and THEN I popped a few Xanax and Then the lithium, to take the edge off...

Last night I allowed myself to be “made over” by my daughter.

Em: “Mama, you are looking so beautiful. You don’t even look like a Mama. You look like a……..Teenager!”

I think that was a compliment – or was I just told that I look like a Mom?


Two side notes:

Apparently I don’t wear enough makeup, as my child’s technique runs to the “Late 19th century bordello mistress” style. I looked like I was having a hot flash due to the amount of blush on my cheeks.

I really need to go over what and where lipstick is intended with Emily. Her idea of “where” the lipstick belongs is woefully off. I looked like “Collette Reardon”.

11 Baleful Regards:

I am anticipating Big-A's first big makeover of me. She likes to apply eyeshadow all over her face, and doesn't get that lip gloss goes ON the lips, not around them in outline form.

She does like to "do" my hair, which translates to brushing it in the wrong direction until it's a horribly tangled mess.

Mignon said...

Yes, what is it with the brushing in the wrong direction? My hair is really straight and wiry, but Madeleine can me look like Collette Reardon.

And go ahead with that lipstick advice. I never got it, and to this day I can't apply lipstick without looking like a 90-year-old woman.

Whatever you do, don't give her the mascara!

Ah, to look like a teenager again! Although, thinking back to MY teenage days, that would not necessarily be a good thing.

And, once again, you REALLY owe it to your readers to post a picture. And don't forget the one of Terrance during his Kabuki episode, clutching the frozen peas.

I have two words for you:

PICTURE PLEASE!!!!

:)

Well, *my* girl child is 16 and I still wouldn't want her applying my makeup if I was going out of the house, or expecting company, or if there was a chance I'd get a glimpse of myself in the mirror. She is all about the eyeliner.

my daughter would say, "You look BYOO-SI-FULL!" and then the UPS or fedex man would come to the door. and then, who knows? CPS?

roo said...

You could be a teen model!

Ditto - pictures, please.

So far, Tacy has only messed with my hair (using a remote control as a pseudo-brush). I suppose I ought to buy some cheap cosmetics and really go crazy some night. I don't even OWN eye shadow.

I'm DYING to see a picture. :-)
