Today is my lovely friend Jenny's Birthday (Happy Birthday honey) and we decided that we would have a bit of a pamper day. So this morning we headed over to MBK where we had made appointments at a new Japanese Place which specialises in facials. (I have no idea what it's called but it's next to the food court on the 5th floor). It was a little bit daunting....there are no private rooms so people can walk past and see you lying there with gunk on your face but we had decided that, since it offered the whole face hoover thing, that we would give it a go. I should probably explain that when you go you can have your pores cleaned with a little gadget that basically sucks out all the crap. Anyway, the actual facial was lovely - we came out all steamed, hoovered and fresh faced that was until........(I really need some da da daaaaa music here)......they offered to put some make up on us (Obviously we were both waaay to hideous to leave the shop with no make up on!!). Nervously we both sat down......Jen's woman started first and I laughed when I saw what she had done to her eyebrows but it was nothing.....NOTHING compared to what the woman did to mine!! I'm actually struggling to describe just how bad they were........they looked like someone had drawn two big, thick caterpillars shaped in an arch across the top of my eyes (I wouldn't have minded quite so much if her's had looked like that but they were relatively normal which made me question why she thought mine should be that way!!!).....then to add insult to injury she added pink over my eyelids and lined them in blue!! (I'm not even going into the pink that she put on my lips and cheeks)...... think startled rabbit, rabbit caught in headlights, bad old lady eyebrows......actually I looked like one of those old ladies that looks like she has fallen head first into her make up bag!!!
We beat a hasty retreat to the nearest loo and washed the make up off......thinking about it......perhaps I should have kept it on and then when Chris walked in the door jumped in front of him yelling SURPRISE....then again perhaps not!!!
So the moral of the story is that you don't need botox or a face lift in order to achieve the permanently surprised look!! All you really need to do is go have a facial then have some wee Thai women draw some really scary big eyebrows on you and bingo......... you've achieved the look for a fraction of the price!!
