permanent makeup

Alopecia is a hardcore thief. Not your "Harry-and-Marv-from-Home Alone-"sticky bandit"-who-you-kinda-love" type of thief. Not even the kind you can arrest and throw into jail.
I was recently in the waiting room at the pediatrician's office, and as I looked over at a fellow mother, I was shocked (and envious) to see her perfectly made-up face. Permanent makeup (and some Botox) had seen this mother-of-two through the best and worst years of her life.
If I start talking about tattoos, I can tell that lots of you of a certain age will react simply by sighing deeply or clucking your tongues in disapproval. Sorry, Mom and Dad.
