Dedicated to all the gorgeous women I've know who like to give their self confidence a little boost.

She feels naked without her mascara
She can't step outside the house
When she wears it she's a Valkyrie
Without it she's more like a mouse.
Mascara can do more than Prozac
Counselling or Therapy
To lighten the deepest depression
Or put on a bright face for the day
Nature gave her the face she lives in
But not that she wants us to see
So a dab of mascara and lippy
Are instant personality
Sometimes she turns to the magic wand
when life has shatterd her dreams
It is more than a common cosmetic
It's a bottle of self-esteem

Ahh, the mask that we wear to be confidant. I wear one too but I will go outside w/o it. My lashes are so blonde that I look like I don't have any w/o it. lol With it, they are so long they look fake if I put too much on.

Love, Jan xoxoxo

Hi Ian,

I always feel so much more beautiful when I have make-up on. Nothing heavy just a little mascara and shadow to draw mens eyes into my eyes.
