When I started working part time I did better, but for the past couple of years it hardly has seemed worth the bother. I mean really, how many wrinkles and grey hairs can a bit of mascara and blush and lip gloss hide? I confess that my eyelashes have become lighter over the years, and the mascara does help to define my eyes, so occasionally I will still take the time to put on a bit of makeup. And guess what? People do notice! I have taken the effort to put on a bit of mascara several times in the past few weeks, and one of my co-workers has had a nice comment every time:
"You look really nice today. Are you wearing make up?"
"Are you wearing mascara today? Your eyes look really pretty!"
I'm grateful for a sweet co-worker who notices when I'm trying to take a bit more care with my appearance, and I'm grateful that a bit of mascara can really make a difference.
