Cat Eye Eye Liner – Not For Everyone

Cat eyes and double cat eye, eyeliner is all the rage. Why, I have to wonder is it so hot? It’s hard for most people to do. Getting it even on both sides of the eye, getting it dark and smudge-free is difficult at best and if you wear glasses, forget about it!!

Here is the tailpipe planted in the garden and another bit of rust that happens to be on a chicken.
