So What’s Different?

I saw the topic and thought, “Gosh, maybe I’ve missed something obvious. I’ve never been so good at this Girly-Girl thing. I should watch that.”

I watched it. I don’t feel enlightened.

Maybe it’s just been too long since I thought about this stuff, but what’s so different about applying make-up for 40-year-olds than it is for 20-year-olds? I get that people’s skin type might change, but that’s an individual thing. Where did this “no mascara on the bottom lashes” thing come from, and why?

Maybe someone who reads women’s magazines or watches TV can give me a clue here.

(Yep, this is a very shallow entry.)

  1. Ha! Her foundation is darker than the skin on her neck!

    I wear mascara, but only on my lower lashes, because I’m a loner, Dottie! A rebel!

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed the color difference. It’s one of the things that drives me nuts. Of course, I have such pale skin that I’m in danger of burning if I leave the fridge door open too long, so it’s also something I have to be really careful of when I wear makeup. Having goth styles in fashion is good for me. “Yes, I need the ‘dead’ shade, please. No, not freshly dead, more like a week dead. There we go!”

  3. (i agree with cyn..i also have the death shade of pale)
    the reasoning behind the no mascara on lower lashes, is as we age, the circles under our eyes get worse(ain’t that a thing to look forward to?) and the darkness of the mascara will make the circles look darker.
    same with dark eyeliner. i’ve *sigh* recently switched from my classic kohl black to a brown. i’m not liking this aging thing.
