i haven't started yet. i am quite active and well, that doesn't lend itself well to a madeup face. ha ha!--i just got a funny picture in my head of me commuting by bike and having my "face" melt off. gross and silly at the same time. i have, however, had people put makeup on me for special evenings, but i've always felt quite uncomfortable and self conscious. and so had to take it off. ON THE OTHER HAND, i have to confess...one morning when no one was awake to stop me from going crazy on ebay, i won a shu uemera (sp?) eyelash curler. i don't know how to use it properly, and nor do i use it. but i hear that it's good. so i'm keeping it for when i'm "grown up" and need it. (i'm 25 ) ...perhaps you can say that i'm on the cusp of "makeup-ing"? i got a great compliment the other day. i was with a couple of women i don't know very well and the conversation was centred on makeup. when it came up that i don't wear any, one of them said: "i can't believe it. YOU DON"t wear any? i can't believe that is your real lip colour!" maybe this means i've been blessed with good genes...and affirming new friends!
