You are either a makeup girl, or you're not. The makeup girls instinctively know how to apply eyeshadow. They know how to make the most of foundation and blush and eyeliner. They have a skin care regimen. The rest of us slap on some Oil of Olay, foundation, and on good days, a little mascara and lip gloss. If I were a makeup company, I would target the non-makeup girls -- those of us who are too intimidated to stop at the makeup counters in the mall. The Bare Minerals makeup infomercials did a great job of that -- you get to watch women of all ages apply the makeup (hey, I can do that!) and then you call that 800 number and order everything you need -- and the bonus is you can do it at 3 in the morning. The other company for us non-makeup girls is Benefit. Ladies in Denver: head over to Macy's in the Cherry Creek Mall and look for Connie -- she'll give you a 5 minute makeover (she even managed it when my kid was kicking and whining and spilling goldfish crackers all over the floor). They have products like "That Gal" -- a creamy pink magic potion that brightened everything up, even took care of the sun damage on my forehead. They call it a "face primer" (whatever that means) but for me it means I don't have to wear foundation. Or "Boi-ing" -- another magic powder that takes away the dark circles under your eyes. Or "Bluff Dust" -- it's yellow, and it does something cool to your face. It's not makeup, it's magic.

Save Money on Event Planning

Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that? Because we are human, and along with our humanity come life celebrations: baby showers, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, funerals, and the list goes on and on. I'm sure that I don't…
