“Why do girls wear makeup?”
My husband asked my that question when we first started dating. He was 18. I was 16. He told me that girls looked much better without the “paint.” For the most part, I agreed.
I wore very little make-up then. And I still wear very little – although I’m finding that a touch of lipstick, a twirl of mascara, and a hint of tinted moisturizer can do wonders for my appearance now that I’m getting “older.”
That said, there are occasions when I enjoy “going glam” for an evening. Only one problem: I am not a make-up artist and things like eye shadow confuse me. So I have two options – I can call my sister Kathryn (a beauty queen and aspiring cosmetologist) OR I can use a ColorOn Professional Instant Eye Shadow kit.
“These are single-use, hygienic, hypoallergenic applicators that require no makeup skills, no brushes or secondary applicators. Imagine an eye shadow that is waterproof, crease-proof, and long-wearing that transfers to the eyelid with just a touch.”
Did you catch the part about “no makeup skills?” These applicators just scream my name. I tried them and I have to say they ARE super easy (just stick the applicator on the lid, pull it off, do a little touch-up blending, and add a little powder…) and the results are quite nice. You can make your look as dramatic or as “natural” as you like with just a little blending.
The kits, which include five pairs of appliques, retail for $25 at sephora.com.
