It's Ugly Like Sunday Morning....

I'm lazy at night.

Really lazy.

I don't wash my face most nights before I go to bed.

Yeah, I know, EW!

The closest I come to washing my face before bed is swiping it with a Pond's Clean Sweep thingy.

This means I wake up most mornings with black smudged eyes from the previous day's mascara and eye liner. Couple that with the hereditary dark dego circles under my eyes and the Medusa hair style and I'm quite the sight in the morning.

I have no less than 10 concealers in my makeup bag. Concealers are the one thing in my life that I could NEVER....and I mean NEVER.... live without.

Most people answer the "what would you bring if you were stranded on an island" question with some sort of survival tool. Yeah. Not me. I would bring my concealer.

The good news is, my husband usually leaves for work before my butt gets out of bed. And, he's blind as a bat without his contacts.....so on the weekends when he's not working he can't see me anyhow.....I usually shower first and his contacts don't go in until after he has showered.

Hubby went for a consult today to get lasik eye surgery done. He's going through with it a week from this coming Monday.

This could be a problem.

Now that is funny! I'm sure he thinks you are the most beautiful woman in the world and won't care when he can finally see you for who you really are!!!!!

See, I have both problems. I don't wash my face AND I'm the blind one, so I probably can't really see the true horror I greet my family with every morning.

Ha-ha maybe he won't recognize you the first morning he sees you after the lasik. Best of luck to him.

ROFLMAO! Don't make me lecture you about skin care. I work in a skin care clinic and am a skin freak. But you could probably lecture me about feet because my feet are normally pretty ate up..

The owner of my clinic has bad under eye circles. We carry Jane Iredale cosmetic and she gets great results with their concealer.

I NEVER wash my face before bed. Unless I'm drunk. How backwards is that?! And I have pretty good skin, if I do say so.

I actually read an article in People or US weekly or something else like that recently with someone (Kate Hudson I think) and she said she prefers the morning after smudgey makeup look and tries hard to achieve it. So I feel better...I achieve daily what celebrities pay millions to get. Ha HA.

I never wash my face before bed either. I think most women who say they do lie like dogs! I'm lucky if I have the energy to brush my teeth. EEW!

I thought I was the only dirty girl out there. CHEERS! Darn about the Lasik.

You're funny! I have smudges under the eyes even though I do remove makeup. It's not a pretty site. I could always hide my hubby's glasses . . .

Colleen said...

Ha ha ha ha...I'm the same way. I've recently made a point to brush my teeth before bed. Gross, I know. Its just that after taking care of EVERYONE else all day long all I want to do is flop down on the bed and sink into sleeeep...
