My First Love

Abstinence and the City

You are the template in which I learned how to love. All of the qualities I look for in a husband are all things I have seen you display. We didn’t always get along though. We spent a few years with this tension between us only to realize it was because we are one in the same. They say you can’t get along with the person you have the most in common with.

But now that I am older, I see the beauty that lies inside of me through you. Everything good in me comes from you. You are a very hard worker and you make sure the needs of the ones around you are always met. You listen to people when they speak, and you give thoughtful words of encouragement in response.

I found a lovely make-up tutorial in a blog post where this eyeliner technique is used flawlessly and it looks so beautiful! Check out the tutorial here

This can also be known as “cat eye” eyeliner. This style varies from person to person based on their preferences, some people like their “wings” to be longer or thicker for a bolder look, whereas some people like just a small wing so it’s not too strong!
