I think it's possibly somehow related to my contact lenses but everytime it's windy and sunny at the same time, my eyes suddenly develop a major streaming problem. Which is all well and good, and might be bearable normally, but not when you are a fan of dark eye make up like me and the tears catch it on their way out. I always end up with it smudging (far more than it's intended to) under my eyes, and sometimes around my eyes.
Today, for some reason, was worse than usual. I could feel my eyes tearing up constantly from the moment I walked out of my flat door. There was water streaming down my cheeks, and every time I tried to wipe it away (after all, what if someone thought I was CRYING???) more and more black came off on my finger. I was starting to get a little paranoid that I looked like The Scream or something, and I was itching to pull my mirror out of my bag and check my face, but I thought that would look a little obvious on the street, especially if it turned out that my face was a total wreck. Therefore I spent most of the walk to work with my head down, wiping my eyes constantly and trying not to walk into anything.
Finally, I got to a quiet spot where I could sneakily check my face in the mirror. Dreading what I might find, I pulled it out of my bag, and warily eyed my reflection. Amazingly, my eye make up had somehow stayed put. It looked exactly like it had when I left the house. I couldn't believe it.
I did have a tiny insect smack bang in the middle of my forehead though. (WTF?)
I think it was dead. Or it was by the time I finished with it...
