ONE WORD…CONCEALER

I don’t wear make up. Okay, I barely wear makeup, but for light translucent powder, mascara and maybe some sheer gloss (aka blistex). However at 32 years old I have recently discovered concealer! Holy hell! I had no idea what capabilities, a seemingly useless item, could regale upon my face. It’s like airbrushing, for my face! How has this product eluded me all these years? How did I live without concealer? Why? Did I live without concealer? All this time, I could have been walking around fooling the public. No more dark circles! No more blotches! Maybe I should look into the possibility of acquiring and wearing real makeup!

BEFORE CONCEALER:

AFTER CONCEALER:

(please take the time to notice the ribbon that is used for hanging the top, is toad-ily sticking out of my shirt.)

See! It’s like magical. I just hope that the liquid doesn’t settle into all my wrinkles making them all the more defined.

Umm…I don’t know what is happening to me in my old age? Ironing! Makeup! What’s next? High Heels!

NOT!

Most of my shoes, outfits and hairstyling’s come direct from the, I don’t give a shit factory. Because, well, I don’t give a shit. Therefore I have no fashion or makeup sense. Nor do I wish too.

(Unless of course, it is clothes from Abercrombie and Fitch, then yes, I do give a shit. If I could sport A & F clothing all day, everyday, I would. There is something about looking like I can participate in a sport with all the team like numbers printed on the t-shirts which gives the illusion I am physically active.)

I come to work to do my job, not to look good. Wearing ‘work’ clothes? Yuck. I can’t, with hose and suits. I can’t. Instead, I dress like I am a waiter when I am in my office. Standard black men’s dress shoes, standard black men’s dress pants, with a limited variety of button down tops to look “as if” I tried to pick something out to wear to work. All that’s missing is a nametag, a carbon copy pad and an empty drink tray.

I go to the store to buy food, not to look good. I would spend my life in pajamas if it was socially acceptable to walk into a fine dining establishment complete with slippers.

I wish I could open a restaurant that did allow for that look. In fact, a restaurant that only allowed that look. Not the wear a nighty, see through wanna be playboy model no one really wares that bullshit either, I’m talking the real pajamas and terry cloth robes we wear in our homes.

But the new found use of concealer has me re-considering my stance on not giving a shit about what I look like. I can actually conceal things on my face that I do not like? I can actually hide my black circles with this magical wand? I can cover up all the imperfections!

I will not be running out to buy the resurrection of the 80’s attire, which includes the ugly thick belts that wrap around a midsection nor will I be purchasing any shapeless eyelet top which are the horrid new trend (who is in charge of that anyway?)

But, I will be using concealer.

I wonder if it will make my ass look better too?

    Looking young there Ms. Mel, but if you really want to see what your ass looks like after applying the famous “concealer” then by all means do so but don’t be shaking your butt at the camera and take pics for us to see, I will take your word if it does change or not 🙂

    I LOVE CREATING THE ILLUSION THAT I AM ACTIVE.

    I ALSO LOVE TO WEAR SPORTY CLOTHES, LIKE EVERYDAY.

    FOR EXAMPLE, I AM IN LOVE WITH WEARING THOSE TENNIS SKIRTS AND MATCHING TOPS.

    WHEN PEOPLE ASK ME, “HEY DO YOU PLAY TENNIS?”

    I SIMPLY SAY, “I WEAR ATHLETIC WEAR BECAUSE LIFE IS MY SPORT.”

    “OK… SINCE I AM APPARENTLY TOO BLONDE TO LEAVE A COMMENT ON YOUR ACTUAL BLOG PAGE I AM LEAVING IT HERE!!!!
    And I quote what I had TRIED to leave there:

    Meleah….. Concealer makes EVERYTHING look fabulous….(I pray to MAC studio fix NW20 daily)
    Have I told you anytime recently that I love you and still worship the ground you walk on? I mean really- you make my ass (that definitely needs concealer) LAUGH!!!!!
    XXOO
    Your Sunshine

    ps…. It has dawned on me that I am getting that drawing you sent me as my 8th tatt on my lower back. Yes, the invitation to my ass crack tattoo. My “friend” was here and suddenly I thought….”Ummm honey….I can’t get it tattooed in ‘that’ spot. It says ‘Sunshine’. As in ‘sun-shine’. As in I’m putting it pointing towards where the sun-doesnt-shine.” He still thinks it will be hot so apparently I have been over ruled. Just thought you should be kept up to date.”
