trying out as tammy faye

Just when you think you've got your act together...you come home from a long day at school, look in the mirror and see this:
eyeliner debacle
As if the dark circles weren't enough punishment, there is a nice eyeliner mishap to boot. I wish I could say this was the first time I'd paraded around in front of students looking silly...but oh no, there was size tag incident and the chocolate + corduroy debacle (thank goodness there is no sketch to go along with that) and....

Oh my. What would I do if I couldn't laugh?!?

If you're in 2nd year studio and saw me looking like this yesterday, I'm expecting a good explanation for why you didn't tell me....here, in the comments...pronto.

Ah, that's nothing you can always say it's a new art project. ;-)

I've sported these Panda eyes in a job interview. Well, I don't have to mention, that I didn't get that job. Do I?

Cool sketch and keep your humor! It's essential for a good life.

hee hee, just went to check the "size tag incident" post out and loved it.

well, you should try getting a less restless eyeliner. one that stays on the eyelid and doesn't feel the need to go places ;)
having said that... panda eyes are in, though.

Tanuja said...

just saw the 'size tag incident' and all I can say is...been there...done that! :)

You could tell the students it was an observation exercise . . . as in: "Tell me what was different about me yesterday."

TeresaR said...

I like Roadchick's answer!

I always tell people if they have food on their faces or between their teeth, but make-up "mishaps"...I'm never sure whether to mention those, for some reason.

Paris said...

haha...i promise this is not how you looked when we talked yesterday!!!

Tim said...

Haha. I would have totally told you...

suzanne cabrera said...

Tim---and I'm supposed to believe you after the chocolate/corduroy debacle?

Lrc said...

Yeah, RoadChick has the right idea...something isn't the same as it was exercise...the trick is to find a tactful way to point it out without everyone hearing you.

Audra said...

Well, when I saw you for class yesterday at 12, I can assure you, your eyeliner was not being unruly.. I LOVE the size tag posting... I'd like to think I would have told you about that if I saw it... haha.

Lady Gaga would kill for that look.

Carlos Smith said...

I honestly thought you looked really pretty. I suppose the eyeliner hadn't dripped down your face as far as it may have been at the end of the day.

TRACEY KAY said...

At least you remembered your eyeliner, that's what's important. A day without eyeliner is a bad day.:)

lol! I love coming back to visit your blog, there is always a smile and giggle to be had. Something similar happened to me once- I went on a snowboarding date with a guy I had a crush on. It had been raining while we were there and it wasnt until I got home and looked in a mirror that I realized I had streaks of eyeliner running down my face. He never told me!

Felicity said...

This and the size tag incident are so funny - two things I dread happening! I can only assume your students are too terrified of you to say anything! ;) If that's not the reason, then I'd deduct marks so they'll tell you next time!

Laure Ferlita said...

Seems to me the correct answer is - "you're so pretty, why do you bother with such artifice?!!"

Love the story and the tag story too - would love to be able to say "never did that before", but alas, I've fallen into that snafu as well! Affliction of the human race - to be human!!
