Oh no she di'nt!

I wasn't really sure how to spell that- but you got my meaning!
I am horrified. terrified. embarrassed... even slightly scared.

Um. My eyebrows are HEE-DIOUS. Yes. With two Es.

It all started in Drama. (doesn't it always?) I was doing my own business, trying to be the loving, helpful, wonderful make-up assistant that I usually am for The Servant of Two Masters.. when my "boss", Lucky, decided to do a make-up tutorial for the clowns.
Hello- I was ALL for it. The clowns needed help with their makeup. They were turning out all blotchy and icky looking.

And then she chose me to be her dummy.

Hm. I don't mind the white paint on my face (I took it off already). I don't even mind the powder!
I DO, however, mind the fact that my eyebrows were waxed down with nose putty. Um- yuck! I do not mind doing that to other people- yes, I'm a hypocrite- but I CANNOT GET THE STUFF OFF!!

I got so many strange stares from people. I wanted to cry. Even my piano teacher asked me what was wrong with my eyebrows.

I have no idea what I'm going to do.

Have you (or someone else) ever done something disasterous to your face?

The look on your face in that picture is priceless! you look pissedspice!!

Oh, I miss the drama days!

Dude...when I was 13 I was plucking my eyebrows (for the first time) and I was like, "Wait...this would be SO much easier with a razor!"....yeah I shaved off half of one of my eyebrows.

lol oh no... sorry I had to crack a smile, because... well I got my eyebrows waxed a few months ago at a different place that I go to... and well the outcome was not pretty. That was the first time I actually used an eyebrow pencil. Ugh!! At least yours will be back to normal soon.. not weeks =[ lol

Oh no! I'm trying to think of what my drama teacher used to remove that sort of stuff. I think it was like... something... WITCH HAZEL... I THINK. It should come off though! SCRUB SCRUB SCRUB!

Ah, the things we do for Theatre are truly heinous.

Thank you for the very nice comment :)

Ohhh no about the eyebrows.. love the expression though! Have you managed to get it off since writing this post?

Connie said...

um. bahahahahaha! Sorry, I love that face though. Don't fret my dear, it will be back to normal soon (I think). Actually I don't know anything, ignore me.
But I love this post.

Oh yes. When I was a freshman in college I shaved part of my eyebrow off by accident in the shower while I was shaving my legs. How does this happen? I do not know. But it takes a long time for it to grow back, just trust me :)

Haha. Thanks guys, I FINALLY fixed them last night at 10:00.. after SCRUBBING AND SCRUBBING AND SCRUBBING... yes. We're all back to normal now.
