Blog Challenge Day 14

My make up bag:

Those that know me know I generally don't wear make up. Why? When I was a teenager my skin was sensitive from my eczema that I had a hard time finding make up that wouldn't make me break out. When we finally discovered Clinque wouldn't make me break out, that's what mom bought me. Unfortunately it was expensive. So, I worked hard to make it last.
I've never been one to wear much make up anyway. I hate mascara because I always forget I have it on & end up rubbing my eyes and smearing it. I also hate taking it off at night so I if I do wear it, I generally don't take it off before bed. Instead, I wait until morning & jump in the shower. Is that so bad?
I do own make up these days, despite not wearing it very often. In fact, I don't think I've bought make up in about 2 years! I've bought Mary Kay and Avon, as well as WalMart. I keep my varied assortment in a Kaboodle (remember those?). I also have a cool make up roll up thing my mom made (I had them on my etsy site for awhile) so I can take my make up with me when I travel.
When I do wear make up, I keep it fairly simple - black or brown eye liner, brown eyeshadow, blush & powder base, and finish with chapstick or a light lipstick/lip gloss.
So, there you have it. My oh so interesting make up bag!

Thanks again for the headband - I'm so excited that it matched perfectly!

I got Claire's dress at Smith's Market Place (of all places) and Deirdre's at JC Penny.
