foundation and lipstick
Even though I am not Black, I looked for foundation that a Black person would use. Yeah, you want to know why. I have a whitish spot above each eyelid. Each is cholesterol, but my cholesterol was not high the last time it was checked. And, my arteries are clear.
So, the foundation will go only on those two spots. I hope it works out. My lids are darker than most people's lids. So, it seems to work to cover the white spots.
This summer, I bought the first coral item of clothing that I have had since the 60s. I flat refused to buy coral lipstick for one blouse.
You must know by now that I was digging in the reduced makeup bin. I was. Each of these cost $0.25. I'm not even wearing the coral blouse for the reunion, but I have coral lipstick for next year.
We have reunions every five years. So, every five years I buy a bottle of foundation. In the 5-year interim I might use foundation five times. So, I throw out the last bottle I bought and buy a new one. Well, I am just so smart and independent. I refused to be forced by societal expectations to wear makeup for the 45th. I put on a bit of lipstick. Well, I am so washed out in the official picture of our class and in the photos on our website.
Not this year! My goal has been to find foundation and other makeup that looks good and is not apparent. I suppose that sounds counterproductive.
A makeup story--in seventh grade the other girls were commenting on my wearing eye shadow and I felt shamed. No, actually, the girls were shaming me without asking if I had on eye shadow on. This went on for several weeks until they finally believed m. In 1957, only hookers wore eye shadow in the daytime.
Do you wear makeup? What do you use--lipstick only like I do? Full makeup? How old were you when your mother allowed you to wear makeup? Do you hate mascara as much as I do.
