It's not as awful as it sounds actually. You can just call it "bleph" if it sounds better that way. :D
As to the next thread title, how 'bout something to do with the green-eyed monster?

Mothers, you have a civic duty to educate your young daughters to say no to radioactive soylent green eye shadow. :mitchell:
This reminded me of the time I started getting interested in make up. I was maybe 12. Anyhoo my mom asked me if I really wanted to start wearing makeup, of course I said yes. Well, mommy took me to the mall, had me plunk my butt down on a seat at the Clinique counter and she told the sales lady there to teach me how to apply so I don't look like a clown. I was so embarassed but now that I look back at it, maybe it was a good thing. :lol:

Maybelline, get a clue. This doesn't even work as an editorial shot: http://www.sirearevalo.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/maybelline_eyeshadow.PNG
I like it, it's fun... but I would wear it on my eyelids NOT my temples. :D

I did the same for my daughter -- not at the store, but in her bathroom. She sighed and rolled her eyes and all that and I noticed that after that she wore less makeup, and put it on more skillfully, than most of her middle-school friends.
Because of her dad's two marriages, she has teenaged nieces now, and I was pleased to see she dragged the younger one, who was moving into clown territory, into Sephora for a lesson and bought her some age-appropriate makeup. So it goes with the generations. Sniff.

Yay, I'm not the only one! hehe. Honestly, I plan on doing the same to my daughters once they're interested in make up (other than their "princess dress up make up"). At least now there's Sephora's and Ulta's vs back then when it was either the drugstore or Macy's/Emporium.
Anyone else remember Emporium Capwell?

My mom never taught me about makeup--I taught myself with the help of magazines. I must say that I've learned a lot over the last 2-3 years. I've finally (pretty much) got the hang of using brushes for my eye makeup, but my stubborn nature is partly to blame for that too. :shuffle:

I'd like to say I avoided terrible makeup pratfalls but I'd be lying. I came of age when simple mascara and dark-ish lipstick was on trend, little to no blush or eyeshadow. It's been pretty basic ever since for me. However there was this brief collective moment of bleakness when a dark lipliner or even grey eyeliner was paired with nude lipstick. I'm not sure why I ever thought it was attractive, and my mom didn't say anything. :P
I guess it makes sense that I'm the one who teacher her how to apply makeup. :EVILLE:

This morning was an example of why you should swatch new items before you try them (especially on a weekday when you are pressed for time.) I had a new NYX loose pigment, and it looked like shimmer (no glitter) in the jar. Well, there was lots of glitter! I think I got most of it off of my face. :lol:

Me too... in the 80's I wore electric blue mascara and pink/orange eye shadow. Oye I blame it on Debbie Gibson, lol.
