So I went to the makeup counter with my seester a little while back, and spent Way Too Much Money on makeup for the weddin'.

Then later, I went to Panteria, and was out in the sun and got a little burnt. Sunburns rarely last too long on me (unless they're really bad); I just get tan.

So now I'm getting tan.

The foundation I bought no longer matches.

Screw it; I'm going to go get some powder to keep down the shine and call it good. Foundation would have made my face melt, anyway.

i feel: bitchy bitchy

And if you're not used to wearing foundation, you might just feel uncomfortable anyway, as though you were wearing a mask.

After a few hours, it really does. Certainly helps me remember to take it off, though!

Mask might be the wrong description -- definitely feels like my skin can't breathe. It felt like that a few hours after the sales lady put it on, too. Thanks for reminding me that I need cosmetic sponges, though.

hmm... did the sales lady clean and moisturize your face first? if not, then you did nto clsoe yoru pores (taht is what a moisturizer does) and thus jammed hte foundation in to them. this is bad because a)ot feels bad b)it feels hot and c) it creates pimples.

as for matching foundation, it shoudlmatch your neck, nto hte front of your face (where yo uahve sun damage always). that way when you put it on you do not get a horrid makeup line alongyoru chin. -annA, the hopefully helpful Mary Kay consultant

See, no one tells me these things. I must have missed the meeting when they told all the other girls this stuff.

I'll have to try the moisturizer, but I'm still unsure about the color, since I think my neck has changed too. I'll have to look and see when I go downstairs.

when is your wedding? if you ahve more then a week, you aught to be ok. take your foundation, get a dot on yoru middle finger (never use thumb or index finger on yoru face) the size of maybe 2mm radius. put your hands together to get the stuff on both hands, put dots on your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, and rub it gently in all over your face with your middle and ring fingers. wait at least 1 minute before descidign if the color is good, as it need sto sink in. don't really use anymore, but clean/moisturize your face first.
do nto put foundation on yoru neck, but do moisturize and clean yoru neck, as it alongwith the tops of your hands and your eyelids ages 30 times faster then all other body parts. also, not moizturizing yoru neck is how one gets liek 10 necks when one is old.

Right now, I'm just having a hard time caring about it at all. :-( Thanks for the tips, though; I really appreciate it.
