For the life of me I could not get my eye shadow on evenly today. I wanted to wear my favorite dark purple. I did nothing different, but for some reason it kept coming out really splotchy. It looked like I had two black eyes. I suppose I could have tried a different color, but I'm feeling too bratty for that now.

I so need to get over this cold or whatever has invaded my body. I have been scrubbed clean for the past two days. I miss my eyeshadow! I wanted to wear a smoky eye to church today, and I never made it out of my pj's.

Glycolic acid is my new bff. It makes my skin smooth and glowy. Now if I could just get rid of these old marks life would be swell. I wonder if emu oil would work...I'm scared.

I don't understand the need for women (with not so horrible skin) to wear foundation and powder everyday. It's sad.

Just for me, foundation/powder pulls my face together and provides a good canvas for my eye makeup and other products. Plus I have oily skin, so I need the oil-free foundation and powder to help me suck it up. And keeping it real 100%, I like to do it. It's corporate armor for me (and I am a makeup junkie - I have to wear it because I keep buying it LOL)

I feel like i have to wear it if i'm going to put on eye shadow because i have a few marks that need to be covered. If I dont cover the marks i feel like my face isnt done enough to wear the eye shadow. I love wearing eye shadow so I end up wearing foundation everyday.

On the flip side, I'm not a make up artist but I can recognize the difference between art and clown...when you can't quite pull the look together, start over with natural basics (wash off what you did) and put a simple look together until you figure it out. I wanted to say that to someone I saw this week...
Try using an eyeshadow primer (e.l.f @ Target for $1!!!)

To the waitress at the restaurant, I wish you knew how badly your bronzer looked in natural lighting. I actually felt bad FOR you.

I have problems with black eyeliner making me look like a middle aged rebellious teenager. Here is one way I can wear it. I hope this makes sense.

I use a automatic pencil liner because you don't need a fine point. Any pencil will work. If you think of the eye lid as one surface and the area between your lashes and eye (upper water line) as a second surface, you are aiming for the edge where these two surfaces meet. With your eyes open, put liner at the roots of the lases. The pencil will be in front of your lashes. If I'm doing the lower lashes, I do almost the same thing but I put the liner on in a dotted line.

I was looking at the HIP line last week after Phoenix recommended it to me. I'm a little worried that it's being discontinued because it was on "Last Chance" sale at Walgreens and buy one, get one 50% off at Ulta. They had the basic black and dark brown, but they also had a great navy blue and a dark purple.

I get that(if you are doing full face or you just love makup)..but there are some people who just wear it to cover their natural skin(no eyeshadow, etc). A lot of times it looks cakey and unnecessary and can't imagine its good to wear that everyday. Just my unpopular opinion.

I agree with you. I rarely wear make up but when I do, I can't just wear foundation, it has to be foundation and eye shadow...I feel I would look so plain.

I feel you - I have a relative who does that (but she has things she needs to cover up). It makes me sad because she won't take care of her skin and has such a low self-esteem that she makes herslf look bad every day like that. I have tried to take her and buy her new, better product, get her treatment for the underlying problem but she calls me high-maintenence and all of these things and I had to just move on. Meanwhile, she is the younger sister and people mistake her for the older all the time because of her skin.

This leads me back to your statement, about people covering up and looking a certain way. I agree, and I wonder why people cake up their faces like that. It draws more attention to the skin they say they want to cover up.

Foundation and powder per se are not bad for the skin; it just requires proper skin care to remove and cleanse the skin, which can be as simple as oil cleansing on the regular and keeping up with exfoliation. Funny enough, so many people in my community decry makeup and say it ruins the skin, when it is poor skincare practices and nutrition that does so. One should always be taking care of the skin from the outside and in, so I don't get why folks are always jumping on folk who wear makeup (not you Josephine; I have gone off on a tangent in my head - sorry!)

I think part of it is that a lot of women don't realize that foundation has improved and doesn't have to look like a mask anymore.

There's a young girl I see at my college regularly that has great skin and doesn't wear anything but foundation and powder--but the thing is, it LOOKS like foundation and powder. And it calls attention to itself. Looking at her skin, I bet she doesn't even need it, but if she IS going to wear it, she kind of needs to balance it out with eyes and lips. It looks unfinished and strange.
