I am a career woman and make-up is an essential item for me.
There was a time when I was invited to become a resource person
in a seminar attended by mostly men. I forgot my waterproof eyeliner
at home so that I borrowed one from a friend.

The airconditioning unit did not make the jampacked room cooler.
I was perspiring and I felt the sweat cascading from my forehead to my eyes
and face.

After my lecture, I went to the ladies room for a retouch. And guess what I saw.
I looked like a zombie with black smudges under my eyes brought about by the
borrowed non-waterproof eyeliner.

For me, make up is an investment rather than vanity. Use cheap make-up and you will end up with premature wrinkles and ageing skin.
