This is why I never “did” the make-up thing before now, except for special occasions.
I bought a new liquid eyeliner last night to replace my 7-year-old one that I’ve been using, and tried to use it for the first time today. It was much blobbier than the old version, and I had a bit of a mishap. That was fantastic, since I just put in brand-new contacts today.
I tried to clean myself up and that just made it worse. I ended up having to scrub my face entirely, and then irrigate my eye – I looked like I belonged onstage with Marilyn Manson; my one eye was just completely black where it’s usually white. So gross.
So yeah, lesson learned – always swipe the applicator along the side before trying to apply eyeliner. And/or, maybe wait until the eyeliner is on before putting in contacts – at least, new contacts.
It’s now nearly 12 hours later and my eye is still irritated. I got through work just fine, and without looking too goth, but I’m glad I can get a shower and rest my eyes now. 😉
