Found this online and discovered that I have committed a horrible cosmetic crime today by wearing green eyeshadow (gasp!).

Make-up is not only to cover up blemishes and accentuate your natural beauty but can also be a reflection of your personality, mood and creative impulses.

Granted, Cosmeticscop.com has some good advice, but I hate "one-size-fits-all" philosophies when it comes to make-up.

The operative word in most of her rules is "should". Her rules are only suggestions, some of which are common sense and helpful to the makeup consumer. You can certainly take the advice or leave it. Her information I find is extremely helpful and has saved me a ton of money.

"Foundation should match the skin exactly so there are no lines of demarcation."

I should show this to a woman I saw at CVS this weekend. She was white, but was wearing ORANGE foundation... and I mean ORANGE.... MUPPET ORANGE! Ugh... my friend and I just looked at each other and tried not to laugh.
If you want to go "Super fake looking tan" - be sure to do EVERYTHING above your shirt that is going to show. Don't stop 1/2" from your jawline & leave everything below that pale white!!

I would get busted everyday! I don't believe in not wearing colorful makeup. Fun blue and green eyeshadow is what helps me be me.

I take what Paula says with a grain of salt...

She makes good skincare products and is knowledgeable, but when it comes to makeup, I will do what I want.

Yay for green and blue makeup!

i'm w/you Feisty. sometimes she bashes products, only to plug her own which contain the same ingredients. i say wear what you want & what works w/your skin tone.

Ditto, i think blue & green eyeshadows look great on some people.. I think it all depends on the SHADE of blue & green though.
