I WAS CLEOPATRA?! | Story Time

Hey, beautiful! Today, I’m back with another embarrassing story time…

Ahh, yes. I love sharing my cringe-worthy moments with you if that’s what it takes to make you laugh.

This time, I’m going to be telling you about the time I embarrassingly did my makeup to resemble Cleopatra while wearing a golden wig. Now, mind you, I’m using the word ‘resemble’ very loosely here, I looked nothing like Cleopatra.

This took place when I was in Orlando, Florida back in 2010. I was pretty young in back then, so keep that in mind.

I have many other embarrassing stories from that trip, so they’ll be coming up very soon!

If you missed my other story time, then you should probably go read that too! I talked about the time I tripped over a dog in Italy and how embarrassing it was. It’s titled I FELL OVER A DOG?! Go read it!

As I said, this happened around 2010 or 2011, but I still remember -and cringe- over this horrendous moment.

I’ll give you a little back story on this so you understand what’s happening.

Earlier that week, I bought a little cheap eyeshadow pallet from Clair’s and a Sally Hanson lipgloss with a flashlight built in. Oh, and I forgot to mention, this was right about the time I started dabbling with makeup.

Okay, now forward to the day this event actually happened. We were all at Disneyworld for the whole day, and while we were there, we went on this Egyptian-like ride. 51e95GjZf3L._SX342_

When we exited the ride, we stopped at the gift shop, and of course, I had to buy the golden Cleopatra headpiece thing. I have a picture of one that looks like the one I bought on this side for you to see.

Fast forward again to when it’s the end of the day, and we’re on our way back to the hotel.

While we were on our way back, I had this amazing idea!

Why don’t I go ahead and do a Cleopatra smoky eye and wear my headpiece in front of everyone in the hotel?! 

Ugh. I facepalm every time I think about this moment.

Me, being me, I decided it would be a great idea to do my makeup in the car. At night. With nothing but a cheap shadow pallet and the flashlight from my lipgloss as my light source. What a great idea, Rawan, just great…

I keep g at my step-brother (who was with me in the back seat) to hold the lipgloss/flashlight still so I can see what I’m doing.

I decided I didn’t want to go with a brown or gold, no. I was going for a black sparkly shadow because I’m fierce like that.

So I pack on this black eyeshadow while my stepbrother’s shakily holding the shitty little light up for me to see, and I think to myself: I need more! You know what I did? I put more shadow on.

God, I don’t really know what got to me, but I don’t really think I was okay mentally…

Fast forward to when I get to the hotel.

I find that the funniest part of this is that my brother, or parents on that note, didn’t mention anything about my makeup. NOTHING! Not a word! Ugh!

Well, my parents went upstairs to the room, but my step-brother and I go to the little vending machine to get a drink. When we get back, we go to the elevator where I remember a cute boy and his family were standing by the elevator doors.

At this point, the boy’s looking at me with the widest eyes you can ever imagine! I was probably thinking ‘wow, I must be smoking hot!’ at this point, or something along those lines.

Oh, how was I wrong!

I walk into the elevator where there is good lighting and a mirror. Well shit. I looked like a raccoon that was run over by a truck.

That boy wasn’t looking at me because I was hot, he was looking at me because I scared him.

I spent the rest of the day in my little room locked there cringing about how embarrassing my day was.

I still cringe about the thought to this day.

Please don’t do the same mistake I did. I beg you.

That’s all I have for you today, I hope you found this post funny or entertaining… I love you all!

Much love, Rawan❤ …
