    Thank you! I appreciate the info!
    I got a good job, so I didn’t move, but life has been crazy with mega changes. I’ve only made eye liner, and am still tweaking the color on foundation. Just got some little containers today, and I’m dying to make a mascara that doesn’t flake off by afternoon.

    I just got the book, and I’m dying to dive right in, though I’m telling myself that I can’t go buy all these new ingredients until after my move. I already make soap, lotions, and a thousand other crafts (can you say fabric up the wazoo?), so lots to move 1000 miles already. But my mind is whirling with thoughts of what I will make, and I’ve got some questions that may be stupid, but I’m from an era where make-up was basic (blush, lipstick, mascara, eye shadow)

    Make it up questions:
    1. What is the difference between lipstick and lip paint? I don’t mean ingredients, but in terms of practical use.
    2. Where do you put highlighter?
    3. Do you use bronzer in place of blush? If not, where do you put bronzer?
    4. Does anyone have a picture of the Top Shelf eye shadow pallet? It’s not in the book, and I think that’s the one I want to make. Marie?
    5. Glittery eye shadows make my eyes itch, and I was told that it’s probably an allergy to mica. Is sericite mica the same as the sparkly micas?

    Thank you for any and all information – I know this is a lot.
    If any of you are into lotions (Marie), Camden Grey has a lot of unusual oils and butters, and you can get small amounts to try. They have some ingredients needed for make up, but it’s a soap supply site mainly. Still, worth checking out. Their prices are good.
