I've held this blog in long enough, quite frankly, and now is the time it needs to come out. In full force.
Ladies of the world...
TONE DOWN THE EYE LINER.
Dear god, I see girls gadding about with so much eyeliner on they look like a strange new species of sleep deprived lemur.
It is NOT a good look. I don't understand why they do it.
Is it some sort of defence mechanism? Excessive amounts of eyeliner reduce their visibility so that they look more mysterious when they flick their heads around when in fact they are just trying to get a grasp of their surroundings.
I don't think they use eyeliner pencils - on no - they aren't strong enough. They use roller brushes that would usually be used on houses and dunk them into the most waterproof eyeliner in existence. That or tar. Given the potency and frequency of these coatings they get over a kilo and a half of eyeliner slathered onto their face. They must have the neck muscles of champions keeping their wee heads up so as to keep a well coloured eye out for potential mating partners.
We've all had the scenario where you go to sleep (possibly upside down or under a bed) and haven't had the capacity to remove your eye make up prior. The well known panda look results - but this is different! These girls are guilty of an intentional lemur look.
It reminds me of those old cartoons where one character plays a joke on the other by putting black paint on the rim of the other character's telescope (or whatever circular looking object is nearby) and then the other one gets a big black ring around their eye and looks like a total fool. These total fools are doing it on purpose!
Stop it, ladies! Just stop it! If you do I will rub my eyes in disbelief and not smudge my own eye liner.
