Maybe She’s Born With It…Maybe It’s Sharpie

When I left here yesterday morning, I thought your dad had put my
overnite bag in the car while I was having breakfast. He didn’t think of it.
It wasn’t until last night that I realized I didn’t have it. That meant no daily medication, and no makeup. Rather than go out totally un-made up, I used a black Sharpie pen for eye liner and shadow, and a red marker for rouge. The ‘shadow’ and ‘rouge’ were each smudged with my mother’s old colagen cream. It worked perfectly!

      Uh… I think I’d be more worried about putting Sharpie on/near my eyes instead of worrying about going makeup free!!

      I think eyeliner is like…6 bucks. Way cheaper than going to the doctor when her tear ducts get clogged with toxic marker. Very MaGyver of her though!

      i loveeeeeeee this. i always pinch the shit out of my cheeks. that leaves them very rosey. if you do it too much or too long they will be blue and unattractive tho. hahaha. also pinch ur lips together as hard as u can, they too will get red. i love this mom.

      My guess is the Sharpie idea became feasible in her mind AFTER having to skip her daily medication…

      Any chance this actually looked good??? How long does it take to get sharpie off your skin? I think Mom needs to get back on her meds SOON!

      sharpie works really well for eyeliner, actually. it stays on for hours, and doesn’t smear or get into your eyes. kudos to this mom for trying it!

      also to Kailey – sharpie is non-toxic. says so on the pen. ;)

      ive used sharpie for years. Never once had a problem. It lasts for days and looks better than regular liner. I’d take sharpie any day over makeup liner
