How it all started...
Before I start, let me list a few words to describe my upbringing... religious, old-fashioned, strict. Meh, good enough, I don't want to go into much detail there. There was a definite "no makeup until you're done school" rule to say the least! Like most kids, my best friend lived down the street. We were a year apart, and spent every waking day and night of our weekends and summers putting on plays, playing dress-up, dressing up Barbies, and all the other things little girls do. It was quickly discovered that my friend's mom was a Mary Kay consultant (you can probably see where this is headed). So of course, being that makeup was taboo in my house, I was sooooo fascinated by it. Pretty soon all of our activities consisted of us dressing up and wearing makeup. I remember us putting on old granny wigs and clothes, attempting to do "old people" makeup, and going to the park to convince the other kids we were grannies!! Other times we would argue over the "play n pretty" eye shadow palette of bright 80's colored blues and pinks. Sadly, at the end of the day, I had to wash everything off before going home. But I always looked forward to the next day filled with imagination and fun!
I look forward to hearing from you!
