On a bright shiny day like any other, a shy, young girl of 12 tip-toes into the bathroom and locks herself inside. Heart thumping, she pauses and listens for any footsteps or shouts of anger. Slowly she walks towards the big mirror holding the object she has been so curious about for so long. She had finally given in and carried out the dark deed of slipping it out of her sister's closet and into her little hands. It was a wee little mascara from Revlon. She had seen her sister applying mascara many times and, each time, her sister had squished her plea to let her try it JUST ONE TIME!. So there she was applying the mascara on her eyelashes, brimming with joy, but, alas it was a disaster. Her lashes end up stuck together, the black messy goop is all around her eyes. It takes her hours to get the waterproof mascara completely out of her lashes. Her hopes shattered, she swears she wont touch a mascara again...... Time passes and she has many messy eyeliner trials, cakey, ashy foundation encounters. Being all clumsy and butterfingered she muses that probably she wasn't meant for the shiny, pretty world. The poor thing gives up! stashing away the gifts of makeup her sister buys for her. To just be looked at and never really used.....
Now in her 20s, at last, she discovers Youtube, online shopping and the very many beauty blogs on the internet. When the sleeping dragon finally awakes, she realizes how much she loves this world and how much it beckons.....She was Addicted!!!
