Does... that mean Val's trying to get me in her harem? :O
She also sent me an email today saying she wants me to keep the dress... Does looking beautiful really make people want to give you things? :P I did go shopping with one of the women, after she removed her makeup and feminine clothes, and she was holding doors open for me :wink:
I didn't feel like removing the makeup, so I'm still wearing it today... Tomorrow starts more practicing, although I got an eyelash curler and I'm going to see about trying that tonight. Why do they all look like torture devices?

I didn't send you an email (if you meant me), but yes, get in my harem. ;D

One of the things I have found particularly helpful for removing makeup (other than waterproof mascara and, to some extent, eyeliner): unscented baby wipes. They're often cheaper than the makeup wipes made for this purpose without breaking me out (I have special snowflake skin). You can also use ground up oatmeal (which is a little friendlier to plumbing than non-ground up oatmeal)

There are various products made explicitly for removing eye makeup, but some people swear by olive or coconut oil - I found they left a residue I didn't really like the feel of (and I don't really like the smell of coconut oil), but your mileage may vary.
No more zoos!

Tried again this morning and looked horrible. I didn't think it was quite that bad until I looked in a mirror at work. I wiped a lot of it off, but I'm just feeling really discouraged with the whole thing. I'm going to keep trying, but I'm just really frustrated right now and don't particularly want to go out looking like a clown until I get to decent at it. Luckily I know that people at work don't care and they understand, so I can at least experiment a little during the week. I talked to the woman that helped me and she suggested getting together on Skype, so maybe that'll help me a bit more.

hmm... I seem to have applied blush asymmetrically :(
I really haven't had enough time to do everything I want for makeup every morning, but I think I'm getting better :)

So, um, apparently I've gotten decent because I had several comments on makeup among other things. Thanks for the help gals! Also, here's a couple more shots in case you're curious about the dress I'm wearing :wink:
