“Beware the ides of March” “Nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so”
Shakespeare–Julius Caesar Shakespeare–Hamlet
So what is the ‘Ides of March’ really and should we beware? And if so, how much?
The word “ides” comes from Latin for “in the middle of.” So the ides was the exact middle day of each month.
March was the first month of the year in the Roman calendar and as it took our satellite’s phases into account, the ides always fell on a full moon, which gave it even more supernatural clout.
Unsurprisingly, this was the deadline in the Roman age for paying off one’s debts and settling affairs.
As March Mascara Madness continues at Makeup Gourmet, we pay tribute to this literary reference to an historic Roman superstition on this, the Ides of March.
“Really makes my eyes pop.”
”Glides on smoothly and evenly.”
“Definitely my favorite mascara of all time and great value!”
“Goes on so cleanly and smoothly, no clumps at all!”
“I can put on one coat for everyday, or really amp up my lashes for a special night out”
“Lashes look natural, thick, and luscious! :)”
