I'm an artiste

I was up too late last night and struggled to get out of bed this morning. So, in an effort to save time, I brought my make up into work with me. I'm here first each morning and have plenty of time to start the coffee and do a little facial magic.

Except, when I opened my little bag I discovered that I had forgotten to grab my brushes. Shit. Deep breath. OK. Foundation and eye shadow can be done by hand. But powder - blush - brow powder and eyeliner... Double shit.

And this is where things got freaky y'all.
I found a very small piece of gauze in our first aid kit.
And I found tampons.

The gauze caught just enough powder to dust it on my face without getting clumpy. WIN.

The tampons: I pulled them out of their little cardboard tubes and pulled it apart. There's a ton of material there ladies! Then I cut it up into little cotton pads for the blush and brows. Hooray, I was not looking like my makeup was applied by Tammy Faye's drunk blind monkey.

But the eyeliner... Hmmm.... Then I had it. Brilliance. I use powder eyeliner. I pulled the tampon string through the eyeliner and then slid the string along my lid. Lovely.

I Am Gorgeous. Thank you Tampax!
