Why is the immediate reaction to make faces, to grimace and inspect for spots or new wrinkles? Haircut yesterday so not supposed to be a bad hair day today. In the right light the roots don’t show too much and unless I look closely the grey is mostly hidden.
Blue eyes, red-rimmed looking out through a large square glasses on a large square face. A lined face, fine lines everywhere unless I take my glasses off. Quite a red nose really but perhaps that’s the gin-and-tonic.
What sagging jowls, wonderful word jowls. Thin top lip some say that indicates meanness – could be!
Chicken–neck – 0h to be 20 again.
When I take my glasses off I look even more tired with that slightly pathetic peering stare.
Not pale, never pale. I was wanted to look pale and interesting at 18– fat chance. Still a slight tan, an English complexion, fair hair no longer flowing now cut to touch the collar.
Heavens it’s a sensible middle-aged face. Not motherly, no the mouth turns down in a hard expression. Not smart, the hair’s too messy; no make up just a boring face these days.
Men’s faces look lived-in, women’s just look tired.
