When I was a little girl I never really dreamed about what my wedding would be like or who I would marry. I always remember wanting to get my hands on my mother’s eye shadow palette and wondering when she’d let me wear lipstick. I remember most of my first makeup purchases:
- First lipstick: An irredescent pink bought at a Walgreens in Ohio.
- First lipgloss: Watermelon with a marbelized color that came in a stick form at the drugstore. I think the brand was maybelline.
- First eyeliner: Green, Wet & Wild (my favorite color is green…of course I didn’t choose black)
- First mascara: Green, Maybelline Great Lash
And the list goes on.
So when I was the CVS yesterday afternoon and I saw the original Maybelline Great Lash in Green and Teal as limited editions, I grabbed them immediately.When I was 16 and wearing mascara I didn’t have the makeup skills that I have now. I doubt that I will apply it as liberally and heavily as I did straight from the tube (I’m pretty sure my green lashes were shocking). Instead, I’m going to layer the green over a coat of black mascara just for fun. The teal might go straight on my lashes though to really make my brown eyes pop.
Oh I love it when I get a blast from my beauty past. Who remembers what their first makeup purchase was? Share!
