I don't really wear make-up. Occasionally I'll chuck some on, but most of the time I make do with tinted moisturiser. When we were younger, however, my friend (Our Gracious Hostess) and I used to read Seventeen magazine and look at all the pictures for hours.
I was more interested in the music section while she liked the fashion. What she liked most of all was the names given to the cosmetics, and she thought that making up names for make-up would be her dream job. On Saturdays we went down to Boots the Chemist and she would look at the lipsticks and eye-shadows thinking up poetic descriptions for them, which were nearly always better than the ones they actually had. It was an exciting town.
Anyway, I realise that now I buy lipsticks for shows and apply different shades depending on my character on stage. You can invent a whole new character with these colouring tools, which is why it's called make up I guess.
