Deciding Not To Wear Eye Makeup

When going through my eating disorder over the years at one point I was extremely weak.  I could walk down the sidewalk of a 4 lane commercial street and the breeze from the cars going past made me feel it would blow me over.  Along the way on that journey I had also decided I did not need to wear make-up anymore.  I had started experimenting with makeup in the sixth grade and by now I was in my forties and slowly stopped.    I did not connect the dots until much later that it was all  part of a sign I was in trouble.  By the time I went for help I was told my kidneys had all but shut down due to my dieting. 

That was many years ago when my desire to be thin over powered my sensibilities and after endless trial and error I wised up to realize the number one priority was to find a way to feed myself to be healthy and then let the thinness evolve into itself.  Thankfully I found a way to have a diet that keeps me strong enough mentally and physically to pursue my ballet passion now and be a reasonable weight.  Of course in the ballet world one cannot be too thin.  As they say in the modelling world as well.  The lines are just either more elegant or just what we are conditioned to think are more beautiful who knows?

Yesterday as I was putting my makeup on before ballet class I decided not to wear mascara anymore.  Thinking maybe it is too harsh for my look and to just stop.  Then today I clicked on  the Advanced Style blog and found Linda Rodin a model who is 10 years younger than myself.  She says she does not wear eye makeup.  I thought aha, one can look nice without it.  But checking out her photos she ALWAYS wears glasses.

  Since I never wear glasses of any kind ever I am now having second thoughts.  Tonight I have decided to wear tons of eye shadow and no mascara.  This makes me realize that I have way too much time to spend thinking about "nothing" and need to take a creative writing class.

Linda also said she thinks we should age naturally instead of looking like an old person with a face lift.  She has created her own face cream and she seems to have beautiful skin.  It is available for purchase.  It is supposed to have all natural ingredients but something has to be added to it for shelf life?    It seems to me if a serum or cream for wrinkles actually works then it would be the same as a drug where there is always a cause and effect.  When one problem is addressed it causes something else to be effected.  Does this make sense?

Has anyone tried Linda's oils sold at Barney's?
