In case you forgot to peruse Maci Bookout's Instagram feed over the last day or two, don't worry. I'm here with an update. Among a few filtered photos of Someecards and her feet, the Teen Mom star posted a seriously adorable photo of herself "bein' lazy" with son Bentley.
In the pic, Maci and Bentley do look like they're being lazy, t-shirts, hair undone, and all. But I couldn't help but notice that something looked ... sort of fancy about Maci amidst all her unglamorous momness. And then I realized what it was: Her cat eye. Meow.
As any woman with a child knows, once you become a mom, you don't have nearly as much time to get gussied up as you used to. You like looking good, but you're a creature of convenience now. An is-this-clean?-it-is?-okay-it'll-do kind of gal. And while nothing on this earth is better than having a kid, I think most women will admit, they miss being able to take a little more time getting ready. I don't know how I'm just realizing this right now, 17 months into parenthood, but the cat eye is the perfect solution to that. It takes maybe 60 seconds to do a quick eyeliner job with points on the ends -- and it looks awesome.
So, the next time you're feeling frumpy and self-conscious about the rat's nest atop your head that you call "hair", buy a dark brown or black eyeliner for 99 cents at CVS and load that bad boy on. It'll add a little oomph to your look, and you'll be finished applying before your kid can spill their drink.
Do you ever do a cat eye?
