Just going through some old pictures on my computer.... and I thought this might be fun (if any of you have a scanner, or old pictures on your pc) Maybe we can pinpoint where the MU obsession started for us? LOL As you can see... I was good at 1... still MU free at 3....(although mom kept the hairstyle LOL ) Bare Faced at 6, but come High School... ding ding ding!!! We Found the obsession point! As you can see, at 17 I was already heavily painted... lol and of course, Now! (Where I'm happy to admit my addiciton!)

Aww, thank you Trish... you're so sweet.
I think we had only been together for a month when that picture was taken. He's a cutie.


LOL @ "wtf". Tony, it was bald cap week at makeup school. I forget who did that cap on me... but I like how it turned out! I discovered that week that my ears are assymmetrical -- one sticks out more than the other! I have other scary pics from my special effects class... including me with a full beard! Don't know if I want to post that one though, lol.

For me, my MU obsession started when I ran out of purses to buy.
Actually, I have always like make-up but never experimented with color or different brands. I was a Clinique girl for the longest time and then moved on to BeneFit. I had almost every item in their make up line. But then, on a trip to Las Vegas about a yr ago, I went into the MAC store at the Ceasars Palace and loved all the colors and different looks. That is when the obsession really started for me.

Like I need a reason to go.
I had so much fun there and the MA's were awesome. My friend and I got our make up done since we were going out that night and I first I thought that I wasn't going to like the color combination, but once I saw it done, it was awesome. The best part was that it lasted all night long.

Fun pictures everyone!


I think I started wearing early makeup in early high school, and wore basically the same thing every day up through my first year of graduate school (from ages 14-22 or so) -- foundation, powder, concealor, mascara, and charcoal eye liner. Very boring I know, but my mom also wore the exact same makeup each day (although a different color of eyeliner) and I was just never inspired to do anything new.

Then when I got engaged, I wanted to do my own makeup for my wedding to save money. So last year I started experimenting with eye shadows and lipsticks, reading about makeup, and stole some ideas from the professional makeup artist who did my makeup when I was a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding, and now I want to keep experimenting! I can't afford to buy tons of makeup, but I love this site because I can research different products and get ideas on what colors would look best on my skin so I can make more informed purchases!
(My husband thinks it's funny that every month when I deposit my paycheck, I stop by the drugstores next door to the bank and pick up a few things!)

OMG! What awesome pictures everyone. Thanks for some good chuckles Tony. I really like the yellow tux! Very handsome now thou I must say. I don't really know when the whole makeup thing started for me but can I just tell you if my 5 year old daughter could read and write she would LOVE this site. I always say she was born with high heels on. She is my little fashion plate. She is obsessed with anything and everything girly. Shoes, clothes, hair makeup you name it she loves it. One of her favorite channels on tv is the style channel. She loves, How do I look, The Look For Less, and what not to wear. She will sit and watch and kind of makeover show, runway shows, she will even sit and watch red carpet shows to see what all the stars are wearing and critique all of them! Remember, she is only 5! When we go to my sisters house she will disappear up to my nieces room and lay out an outfit for her to wear the next day! I am in serious trouble when she gets older.

LOL! Your poor b/f must have been so confused, hahaha!
Great thread, btw. I'm enjoying the pics and hope more people post! Your baby pics are adorable, especially the first one -- such a sweet little sparkle in your eyes.
Oh, Tony, I think my fave is of you in the Easter egg yellow tux.


Love the Tom Cruise mug too -- crazy how striking the resemblance is in that picture!
