This is probably not a big surprise, but I was kind of a weird kid. Case in point: when I was eight, I had a mummy obsession. It was just a phase, but it lasted for months. Day after day I would come home from the library with armfuls of books about mummies, and I’d spend hours reading about burial preparations (removal of the brain with a hook through the nose was my favorite part), pyramid building and Egyptology. My mom would look at me strangely as I’d describe the books and pets I’d bring with me into the afterlife.
My childhood mummy phase eventually passed, but the other day, while watching Nova, The Mummy Who Would Be King, my mind wandered to — surprise, surprise — makeup.
Is there a cap on how much makeup one can bring with them into the afterlife? — ’cause Cleopatra must’ve taken a TON of black eyeliner with her!
As I pondered my ginormous eyeshadow collection, I wondered which crease colors I would want to be buried with in my (presumably fabulously decorated) tomb for all eternity. I’d hire only the best tomb-keepers, too, and they would hook me up with giant custom-made eyeshadow pans of MAC Soft Brown, Soba and Sable eyeshadow, my top three go-to crease colors of all time! If we’re talking eternal resting places, we really ought to be prepared.
