MY 15 MINS ........... (now, hit the snooze button and gimme 15 more)

My 15 minutes of Fame came wrapped in a package of Elder Supermodel and cheesy runway quotes by yours truly

Back in the old days....before you could get your makeup/ makeover advice from YouTube, and Instagram, there were shows like
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and Style Interventions, and a network show called CoverShot. This was more of the "New Year/ New Me, Momma needs a Makeover" variety.
The premise goes a little something like this; Girl gets Guy, Guy marries girl, they have 3.5 kids and settle into suburbia, Guy gets Mistress, Girl divorces Guy and finds herself on her own, having to navigate the world dating and the new job market, Girl gets a Makeover, out of her sweat pants and into a pencil skirt, a Dolce & Gabanna bustier and several hours in hair and makeup and the resulting transformation is splashed across Old Broadway as she gets a segment on the show and a billboard in Times Square!
The results look a little something like this:





many more segments, this is just the first in a series.

Enjoy this distraction while I get the rest of the scheduled blog post together for tonight....

I need to fall in love with it, even if only for the moment, and for that I need to get to know you better.  Seriously, can you really get to know a anything in such a short time, enough to feel confident telling all your friends about it ?  Because that's what you are, you're my friends. 
And friends can smell BS a mile away.  So I'm not going to candy coat it, if I love it, I'll scream it from the rooftops, and if I don't....well. 
I'm the chick that is going to tell you straight, but don't worry sweet pea, i…

But check this out...you'll never believe how I use it today!

Here's my routine.
You will need 1. A brow brush - the ones I use are either

 I am using Senna's brow palette because I want to use 2-3 colors so it looks natural and not one dimensional  4. A spooly or a toothbrush

5. Here's the kicker, instead of brow gel, I use my Shave Soap from Lastics
