Thanks, that means a lot to hear. Yep, I actually joined a makeup forum a while back, and just re-started posting there again. Going to try to get tips on their end as well as here too. Already have a girl over there willing to PM with me to get this working. My next day off is Wednesday, but I don't think I will be able to advance much more than I already have without new products, but like I said, I DO have the face primer, so I can try that, and a girl there told me to try fingers over sponge to see if that works for me better, so I plan to try that as well. s:

Maybe you can get a sample of foundation instead of a full bottle from someplace similar. Doesn't have to be Lancome specifically but it really did help me figure out what color was best.

Color matching at the drugstore is the worst.
I was thinking that. See, our Supermarket is by a Macys. If every Macys has a makeup place that can color-match me, I will be all for this. How much does it cost to be color-matched? Is it free, or should I expect to bring some money for that outside of the foundation itself? And yeah, Once you get that color, I know, it should be super easier. Do you know if they have like a skin-color chart or something too to take home? Some people say things like "Use a tone x2 lighter/darker than your skin tone" but I don't know what that would be when I figure out my tone. There's just so many. x_X

Yeah, my mother said something like that. "Best to ask a beauty place than a drug store. Those girls at beauty supply stores are cosmo girls" or something like that.... though she also doesn't really do makeup herself. It's kind of funny I have more makeup interest than her. ^_^;

Cosplay 1: Sailor Venus (Commissioner failed to make 4 month deadline)
Update: August 10th.... still nothing.

Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.
