Makeup Rationing Kit

To avoid crossing that fine line with the fine-liner.

We've all seen them. There are women out there who you'd think were competing with Queen Elizabeth the 1st for some booby prize in the amount of makeup they apply. The concept of 'less is more' seems to not be able to penetrate the plaster.

The Makeup Daily Rationing Kit divides one's makeup into compartments, similar to a divided medicine kit, only without any daily markings, so as to be useful for an evening out.

Granted, the marketing folks at Revlon would never approve. But running against the wishes of the marketing department always seems to be the wisest course in preserving ourselves in the long run.

       Would the version for very ugly women come with bigger compartments?

       No, just a paper bag with two eyeholes. Like the one you wear, [kropotkin].

       [DrBob] - very wise.

       It's divided by compartments, but it doesn't actually say 'Tuesday,' 'Wednesday' 'Pluterday' on them. Oh nevermind...   

       In my opinion, very ugly women simply become very ugly women with lots of makeup on.

       If we didn't have over-makeupped women we would be losing yet one more set of people to make fun of. How can that be good? No more Tammy Faye Bakers.

       the art of make-up is to make it look natural. not that I am any sort of expert. I tend to dust a bit of powder & throw on a slash of lipstick in the morning and then forget about the face all day long.

       [Dimandja] young women of child-bearing age generally don't use much make-up so your reasoning does not apply.

       it was the *resist having children* that I liked :)
