A makeup test

So what do you think? Do I need makeup? I will say that this before picture turned out weird- the lighting isn't right somehow, so I look a lot worse :)




And the after picture. I use Bare Minerals makeup, and I've had it since last May. The kit cost $60, but I bet I have another year of use left in it!

See, the camera didn't flash on the first one for some reason. Oh well...I tend toward brown colors. I use tan and a deep sparkley brown eyeshadow, brown eyeliner, black mascara, a nude colored lipstick and a little tangerine lip gloss. All from walmart, and it's getting quite old now :)

HOW CUTE!! YOU LOOK GREAT EITHER WAY, AND I MEAN THAT! ALSO, I HAVE BARE MINERALS, TOO! MY MOMMA BOUGHT IT FOR ME LAST YEAR, AND I'M JUST ABOUT NEEDING A NEW KIT. I LOVE THAT STUFF, AND AM SO HOOKED ON IT!!

P.S. I JUST READ YOUR "TEXAS BLOG"...AND WAS CRACKING UP!! I'M FROM SW OKLAHOMA, ABOUT TWENTY MINUTES FROM THE TEXAS BORDER...KNOWN AS "TEXHOMA". AND IT'S ALL JUST ABOUT THE SAME THERE. FOR THE LIFE OF ME, I CAN'T GET IT THROUGH THESE MISSOURIANS' HEADS THAT IT'S ALL "COKE".......WHY DON'T THEY GET IT?? SPRITE IS COKE, CHERRY LIMEADE IS COKE....HAHAHA. NICE TO KNOW THERE ARE OTHERS WHO HAVE BEEN BROUGHT UP WITH THIS LANGUAGE!! ANOTHER ONE I CAN'T GET THEM TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT "Y'ALL" IS TWO TO THREE PEOPLE. AND ANYMORE PEOPLE THAN THAT, IT TURNS INTO "ALL Y'ALL".....THEY ALWAYS LAUGH AT ME. HOPE YOU HAVE A GOOD EVENING!!

Thanks!

LOL about the 'all yall' thing. That word just rolls off my tongue without even thinking- I don't think I could explain its meaning to someone else.

I think you look fine without makeup

You look great both ways. I wish I had your natural near flawlessness! I look wretched without makeup (pimples+pale,fair skin= Ewwww)! Anyway, I'm going to have to look into that Bare Minerals stuff- do you think it would help with skin 'issues'?! LOL! =)

I think you look pretty both ways. For me, I feel better with a little gloss and mascara...it's barley noticeable except to me LOL but I like the difference.
I think whichever you feel better with... I'll have to try Bare Minerals. It looks really natural.

Well you are quite pretty actually...the only thing I think you need but not a must is a good cover-up for the undereye circles:) That's it!! and even THAT is not a must...your pretty!

Thanks for all the nice comments-yep them undereye circles are usually there. I haven't been sleeping well the last few days.

Bare Minerals is actually good for your skin. I rarely ever wash it off because it's 'nourishing' to the skin. Another big plus. I only wear it once or twice a week and sometimes if I'm in a hurry I use the Covergirl Fresh look foundation, which works very well too.

I think you look good either way. I really like the way you look with makeup. If done properly makeup can bring out the best in a women's face.

I also read your post about Texas. I thought that was really funny, I have an aunt you lives there, I will have to tell her about this post.

Noone needs makeup esspecialy not a lovely woman like you. But in the second pic you have a healthy natural glow. I like it. And the fact that it is minerals that are good for your skin and not filled with ick is a plus. I wear makeup, my poor health shoes if I don't, and all of it is 100% natural and organic when possible.
