Dear Models 
Dear Models,

Let's talk about shimmer. I know we're all enamored by fancy new makeup. I know you watch Top Model and see Sutan apply sparkly shimmery poweder to models' faces. I know it's supposed to give them youthful, dewy complexions.

Let me hip you to reality, though.

If you are not one of the few blessed with an absolutely flawless complexion... If you were born with pores... If you have any little bump, wrinkle, or other flaw... YOU ARE OK. YOU ARE STILL BEAUTIFUL. But... Shimmery poweder will only make your face look greasy and emphasize your imperfections.

Let's leave it out, shall we?

And don't even get me started on glitter! Glitter is a menace. In the wrong hands, grlitter's a freaking disaster that lingers all over your clothing, your furniture, your boyfriend, your dog.... Glitter should (most of the time) stay in your craft bin along with the macaroni and glue sticks.

This is not to say that the right, talented makeup artist working with the right flawless ingenue can't pull off both shimmer and glitter. Cuz he can. The question is, can you?

K, thanks.
