makeover

I have a new hair cut .... its short, well shorter than I had


I'm planning on wearing makeup again. I was just too lazy to bother & need to find a new brand that works for me (age & budget). What I used to get...may have been fine years ago, but no longer works on graying me. I go to makeup counters as what I like doesn't always look good on me, and I'd rather try it out than get something that flops.

I also want to get some boots .... that actually fit me.


I also need tights that will fit my build .... I have narrow hips, but a big booty ... the tights I just bought .... well, I've worn them once and the back seams are pulling out


(I'll take suggestions of where/what to look for in makeup, tights, and leggings)

Re: makeover

Lol @ KayKay.

Regarding the boots, do you have the typical Kiwi woman problem of muscular calves, so hard to find boots that do up? - We have an out-doors lifestyle and play a lot of sports as kids, adding to the issue..... Even with our small population they now market wide-top boots.

Re: makeover

My wife had pretty long hair. She cut about eight inches off and it looks really nice to.

Good for you snafu! Go for it!

Mrs. X, my family has always had the problem with big calves and boots, too. Manufacturers here have begun making really stylish wide-calf boots, but back in the day, we would take them to a shoe repairman to put in extra elastic or leather on the inside seam. I don't know if there are repair shops or what the cost would be today, though.

Re: makeover

I haven't worn makeup (except mascara) for quite some time & am thinking about doing so again


As I'm horrible about choosing things that actually look good on me without trying them first (a la' makeup counter) I need to go that route again.

Any suggestions as of what to look for? (beyond the basics)


eyebrown gel
primer (for base/foundation)
