So I'm sure you're wondering why I even bothered with a makeup class. After almost 42 years, I simply wanted to know what to do and how to do it right. Plus, I take the girls to Beth to get their eyebrows waxed from time to time, and she's so nice, I wanted to support her and her business. (I am not kidding when I tell you she didn't ask me to write that.)
The question is, did I learn anything?
Yes, yes, I did. I learned that applying makeup really is an art and that you need a different brush for different techniques. I learned that I have very dry eyelids. (I knew my skin was dry, but eyelids? Come on!) I learned that bronzer is your best friend, as you can use it in many, many ways (on your eyelids, on your cheeks). I learned that I still prefer bold lips. And most importantly, I learned this:
BROWS ARE SISTERS, NOT TWINS.
I should mention that I liked how my eye makeup looked when I left. I had even applied most of it (with A LOT of help from Nikki and Beth). The girls liked the makeup, too. Tim, however, looked at me like my body had been switched with an alien and uttered, "I like you better without makeup, Chrispea.)
Will I use the techniques in the future? Probably not so much. The cost of makeup and brushes seems a little off the charts. But the point was to learn something, and clearly, I succeeded in that arena.
