I thought I'd take some of my favorite Pinterest beauty looks for a test drive so I splurged on some drugstore finds (see below) and went to town on my face. It definitely felt like I was wearing a costume mask when I first put it on, but when I saw the pictures I decided to drink a glass of wine and get over it... Nobody on the street pointed at me and said "Why is that girl wearing so much make-up?" and as the night wore on and some of it rubbed off it actually ended up looking pretty "natural" (in that way that we think not having pores is somehow natural, another story, for another day...)
