I would be what you would consider a late bloomer when it comes to makeup. I never saw the point. I'd rather sleep then go paint my face, plus I figured if I didn't like how looked naturally why should I expect my future husband to like me when "the makeup comes off". So I never really learned all the tricks and tips most teen girls learn and discuss with friends. Occassionally I would put on some mascara or a single color of eye shadow and say "hey at least I put something on". The first time I really had to learn how to put on eyeshadow well was for ballroom competition in college. And I didn't have a clue but it was caked on so you could see it under stage lights but that was when I realized I was lacking in some girl knowledge. That next summer I worked in a drug store where I ended up stocking the makeup aisle with the store's makeup consultant. Bit by bit I learned. And since I have learned maybelline's Indian Summer eyeshadow has become my favorite and my failsafe. Perfect for the natural look and it seems to blend on its own so I can't really mess up the blending. Love it!!!
