Liz Asks: What makeup look do you think isn't for you?

Isn't it unfair that you're the only one who gets to ask questions? Kidding aside I love how Project Vanity readers comment on the blog. Most of you are eloquent and intelligent, which means that I learn something new everyday. In fact, many readers here are scientists, lawyers, doctors, and PhD holders (for serious). That explains the quality of the comments!

That's you!

I want us to have lively discussions even if I don't get to reply as much as I would like. I read every single comment though, and sometimes if I have a few minutes I directly email commenters instead of replying on the website - I know, bad, but it's easier to email via phone versus loading everything! Anyway! Here's the first Liz Asks topic:

What makeup look do you think isn't for you? Why?

I'm sure there's one makeup product or look that you think looks terrible on your face. Before, I really didn't like mascara and matte lipsticks - they felt weird and uncomfortable. Sometimes though it's good to crawl out of our comfort zones to explore little things like new makeup or a new look. You won't know if something is not for you unless you try it. Besides, it's just makeup. You can wash it off anytime!

I was at dinner with a few new friends a couple of weeks ago. These girls don't wear makeup; other than washing their faces with a facial cleanser they don't have a beauty routine. I happened to have a red lipstick with me and somehow sweet-talked them into trying it for the first time. Guess what they said? "I can't believe I look good in red!" "I'm going to get my own red lipstick!" They were truly surprised how their skin appeared brighter and how more put-together they looked overall.

Bottomline: you won't know if something is good or bad if you don't try it first, and even then, you have to allot yourself some time to get used to the idea. Only then can you be 100% sure it ain't working. ;) I hated mascara before but now I can't leave the house without it!

Lemme know what you think.
