Yummy411: 5 Makeup Crimes

Thanks Nywele for the tag and coming up with a cute meme!

Here are my 5 Makeup Crimes:

1. Sleeping in makeup-- I try, I try....
2. Shopping for makeup like it's a sport, especially when a toddler is in tow! "Start the timer, 2o mins, go!"
3. Swatching my hands to death... even going up my arms. Finally, the MA silently hands over a wipe. I refuse because I have to contemplate and compare.
4. Not getting beauty sleep, but constantly on a hunt for the best concealer.
5. When I was younger, I would try to touch up my brows with a razor, dry! Sans moisturizer, and all. Once my friend pulled me to the side and told me that my eyebrows were bleeding... Bloody Mary!

I"m totally crackin up in my seat girl! I soooo feel ya on 2 & 3. When I went Slimshine swatching, I had the two in a double stroller. On Slimshine #4 (Hello, there's 20 and they're freaking sheer!) baby starts crying. The MA is talking to me in one ear, baby crying in the other, and my mind concentrating to write on my paper to match the swatch to the correct name. Sooo bad, I know.

And whenever I go in, they're always handing me wipes. And I say, 'no thanks' lol! They must think I'm crazy. You should have seen me during Fafi at the unveiling! LOL. I had at least 3 MA's offer me wipes, lol!!!!

Oh boy, I think I may have to add yours to my list b/c those are some really good ones, lol.

And I love the photo! *drool*

@ ilurvemakeup: yeh i know... pretty gross, but it was a crime and i learned my lesson! pencil thin brows i had =(

@ afrodite: i think we all are =( however, these days, i cannot sleep in my mascara. it irritates my eyes in the morning and makes my lids super heavy.
