I was overwhelmed. Of course, IMMEDIATELY there was a sales person there and I didn't know where to start. For the last 24 years (EEK!) I've just gone to the grocery store or chain store and bought a black brown mascara, blush for fair skin people and a eyeliner pencil thing and once in a GREAT moon I'm buy a lipstick that I wear once and then it goes bad. So, when faced with ALLLLL these choices and things I have no idea about, it's too much. I haven't even looked in Wal-Mart and Target at stuff beyond mascara and eyeliners for probably 8 years!!! There's all this stuff - tinters, foundations powders and liquids, etc. ACK!!!! I don't want just some random sales person going crazy on me saying I need this and this and that when I don't! Plus... the store had a teeny bopper SA who was black and had WAY too much makeup on (looked like a doll) and a 20s something guy with perfectly manicured eyebrows and a hat pulled low on his head!!!! Neither inspired confidence in me that they would know what a very pale, 38 year old mom would need! LOL I could be wrong, but until I know WHAT to look for, I don't want to rely on someone else. I suppose I should go in for a makeup session or something, but any tips? I DO want a full range of makeup - some sort of foundation, concealer, eyeliner, blush, lips and mascara and perhaps a subtle (not pink or bright) eye shadow. I'm out of most everything, so now's a good time to do it, but ACK!!! It's overwhelming. Across the way was the Sephora store and that was even HUGER!
