She gently applies the foundations
Dabbing the compact powder with the utmost care
The shapely curved eyebrows
The eyeliners and mascaras
The glittering eyeshadows
Make her eyes glow in the sunlight
And a beautiful spectacle in the dark night
Oh! She never forgets the concealer
The cherry red lipstick was her favourite
She wouldn’t dare outside with her naked face
No. She hid under the guise of heavy make-up
A palette that covers her ageing lines
Yes. She would rather believe in the illusion of youth
Then accept the reality of life
Her new confidence lies in her daily makeovers
Submitted for the Daily Prompt – Illusion.
Peace and Love!
