I was putting makeup on earlier and Evan (he’s my precocious six year old) following my directions after his bath, came in for me to blow dry his hair. I had my Sephora pallet out and he inquired as to what the bright yellow eye shadow looked like. I grabbed a fresh brush and swept some of the pigment on the top of his hand. He remarked that it “looked like sunshine”. I then asked if I should put some on. He said, “Ofcourseyoushould!”
Unable to deny his exuberance, I did. When the application of sunshine to my eyelids was complete he admired my work, and said, “Now you blend in better with all the Italian ladies.”
Because…they all have sunshine in their eyes.
