Glasses…

Those are my glasses. I don’t like wearing glasses. They slide down your nose and get covered in liquid foundation. When I wear them, I skip on all my makeup except eyeshadow, eyeliner, and lipstick. No foundation. No mascara.

Though my eyelashes are curled, I still find waterproof or not waterproof mascaras still speck the lenses; resulting with a huge fog stain.

As I said before, liquid foundation transfers. Yesterday, I tried Clinique’s new silk foundation at the store. I’m walking around checking out their orange lipsticks forgetting that foundation is going to get on my glasses! Removing my glasses, I find the bottom rim and nose area are all covered with foundation and even the lens seemed to fog up with it. All day the lenses seemed to fog up after applying that foundation.

Only once this has happened to me before and is the number one reason I gave up on foundation with glasses- eventually my nose area had a green triangle shape on both sides. Did that happen to anyone else or am I just crazy? That green stain would not budge! It took a few days for it to disappear. But I have a feeling it was related to my glasses and foundation. Never again!

Seeing myself in the mirror, I am very insecure when wearing glasses. It’s very hard to feel beautiful- just look at the above picture of the four-eyed girl!

Wearing glasses for me is emergencies only or after work in the evenings before bedtime, not so much a daily thing. This is the third week of nothing but my specks and I am feeling a bit down. I ordered contacts two weeks ago and was told the site is unavailable but they should ship it soon. I said, “Ok.” Next week my cousin, who’s my opthmalogist, text me they still unavailable, but she should receive the contacts next Thursday. I’m thinking next Thursday is this Thursday since she texted it last week.

I’m so hoping these contacts come in soon. They are the new silicone hydrogel kinds. I had an old pair of contacts from Walmart Vision center. I wore those thinking they aren’t too different from my newer prescription. But it was the last one.

How do you, glass wearers all wear makeup? I can’t see very well to tell what kind of line I drew with my eyeliner. It’s so frustrating!

Anyways, happy Sunday! And happy Onam for all you South Indians celebrating that!
