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!
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
