Making Up is Hard to Do

This one is making the rounds. Make-up is sort of a constant battle for me because I am an old-school feminist from a fashion-forward family. Even my sister tries to get me to wear more make-up.

: When I have to see my grandmother, I'll put on a bronzer or a tinted moisturizer
Mascara: My mother buys me expensive stuff for Christmas, but I love the pink and green tube.
Day Cream: Mostly in the winter
Favourite Make-up Product: If I only used one thing to enhance my face it would be eyeliner.
Perfume: SJP Lovely, Pacific Paradise and Sunset Heat from Escada (mmmm grapefruit), Hanae Mori Butterfly
Nails: Weak and brittle, I keep them short--but when the hand was bandaged, they grew long and showed how weak they were by curving into waves.
Hands: Right now they're a sight. But the stitches are out!
Feet: Because of the bunion surgery I have two completely differently shaped feet. I do like a pedicure, but don't get them as often as I'd like.
3 Products to bring to a deserted island: Sunscreen, books, potable water.
Women I admire for their beauty: I admire women for their intelligence, strength, and abilities, which may make them beautiful.
Women with the best sense of style: Katharine Hepburn and Audrey Hepburn. (They don't make them like they used to.)
My ultimate dream: To stop work and finish up projects around the house before dedicating my life completely to crafting.
How do I define womanhood: It's like pornography; I know it when I see it. (Spoken like someone who worked with MTF transgendered people...)
Favourite fashion publication: Go Fug Yourself

Not only do I never wear make up, neither does my wife. Something she never got the hang of, she says. Never seen her in any in the 17 1/2 years we've been together

Yay for stitches being out! GFY is also my favorite fashion publication. And I'm up for a trip to Baltimore to go to a needlework shop!
