The "Natural" Look

Why do most women have to use 10 pounds of make to achieve a natural look?

The moisturizers, foundation, concealer, powders of a natural color, powder for a glow, blushers, eye lid primer, eye shadows, eye liners, mascara, lash curler, brow pencil, lip primer, lip liner, lip plumper, lip stick and gloss.

Add to that glimmers and lashes for dressier nights out. We won't even include nail polishes, manicures or pedicures.

The isles and isles of make-up counters in department stores, drug stores, even grocery stores way out number the little kiosk men can find their grooming aids on.

I like all the girlie make-up. I don't use all that I listed above *cough* well not all at one time. It seems unfair that men get away with aging into a mature look, but women must try to maintain a youthful look for as long as they can.

Maybe I should date a plastic surgeon
or just do this ....

I like the bag look. Think I'll try it.

I think I'd rather have the plastic surgeon...all that free stuff!

and I think it's totally unfair that gray hair on a man is distinguished and on women, we're just old hags!

My god, and you didn't even get into hair removal!

It's true my "no makeup" look consists of at least concealer, foundation, blush, and mascara.

Go for the plastic surgeon...there are more benefits than just looking your best :)
