Hi Phoenix

Thanks for the info! The idea of not overdoing the eye makeup makes good sense to me. I'm going to try blotting the lipstick until it's really just a stain, and then lightly put a bit of clear gloss on top to soften it even more.

My skin tone is a much paler version of the middle picture - more cream than pink tone. I'll experiment!

I love all the Curl Junkie products and use CJ CCCL as my main styler. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
