For 20 years of my life, I didn't wear makeup.
Then I saw before and after pictures of me with and without eyeliner and thought:
Oh wow. That's unfortunate.

So I started wearing eyeliner.
Which then fueled an urgent need to hide those oh-so-charming veins beneath my eyes.
Unfortunately, that light-colored cover up necessitated a bit of faux-tan bronzer, and quickly snowballed into an absolute intolerance for any shine but that precluded by "sun-kissed" (read: daily dime-sized drops of primer).

And that's that.
The riveting story of how I went from an au-natural makeup newb to someone with a "morning ritual'.
True, though it takes all of 1 minute and 30 seconds to apply the 5 products I tirelessly turn to, I still sometimes miss the contentedness I once felt with my own nakedness.
A statement which likely confuses the offices outside my floor-to-ceiling window.
What can say? I hate pants.
PS: Any tips on eyeliner that absolutely WILL. NOT. RUN. ? I'm at a loss.
