'Galatians 5:26' by Shannon Shea

sit at my stupidly small work table holding up my mother’s gold hand mirror applying things that will eventually make me look older even though they are made to make you look younger. Unfortunately, a mirror to sit on my desk so I would have both hands free would certainly not fit in my Vernice Sfumata Prada Tote, it would be noticed while walking out of the local Target. I start with NARS Skin Smoothing Face Prep and put a little on my lips to keep them moist. Who would want to kiss someone with broken skin on their lips? Next I apply my Cle de Peu Correcteur Visage Consealer Stick in Ivory over the dark circles under my eyes due to lack of sleep. Then I cover my face and neck with Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Foundation in Porcelain Ivory. Now the cheekbones. I want them to look sharp. Sharper than razors. I should be able to cut someone’s dick off with the way I make them look. I achieve this by first smearing Yves Saint Laurent Tere Saharienne Bronzing Powder in 3 Golden Sand from my ears down to where it’s parallel to the corner of my mouth with my Kevyn Acoin Contour Brush then go over that slightly for some added color with Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush. Perfect. Almost. I finish my face off with M.A.C Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder/Pressed with helps keep me looking unhealthily pale. Now, eyebrows. I fill them in with a Shiseido Natural Eyebrow Pencil in Deep Brown and then shape them with my Dior Eyebrow Brush. I’m so close I’m starting to get an erection. Eyes. First the Shu Uemura Gold Eyelash Curler, then put M.A.C’s Cream Color Base on my eyelids with a Suqqu Eye Shadow Brush. Lastly I use Estee Lauder’s Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara.

That might have taken a while, well, longer than a while. But what you end up with is all worth it. You go through pain, you must be patient, but the result is pure pleasure. Perfection.
