Dear Anonymous...

First of all I would like to say I do appreciate you stopping by my blog and looking around. I am always glad to find new readers. I also appreciate your criticism, I mean, how are we to improve if not given direction. But as I work very hard on these and they are my joy, I want to every opportunity to make changes for the better. Having said that, I would like to take the time to address the comments that you left for me regarding my color choices in eyeshadow.

First of all let me state that I am in no way a makeup artist. I have never claimed to be. I am simply a woman who loves makeup, feeling good about herself and experimenting with color. I have over 150 different colors at my disposal, I think that sometimes we need to take chances and I for one, am confident enough in myself to take certain risks when it comes to my style choices. I am not afraid to try new things, or to play it "safe" by using only restricted colors in my palate.

Having said that, sometimes I come up with color combinations that are gorgeous. Sometimes I am not so lucky. But, no matter the outcome, I take pics, post them onto my blog and even have the guts to say, " this is not my best work" or " I was going for this look, didn't make it. Any suggestions on how I can get there?".

While I appreciate your criticism. I do however have to ask myself why someone with such a vast opinion of what I am doing "wrong" would post such opinionated comments yet, you hide behind the cloak of " anonymous". I would think that someone with your level of style and expertise in the matters of fashion and makeup implementation would certainly want to get their name out there so that they could help color impaired Diva's like myself correct their ever so horrid mistakes, such as wearing the wrong shade of Pink and Green. I mean, if you know so much about makeup and or fashion. Shouldn't I be allowed to see your look?

Having said that. I would like to see what you, yourself have put together. I mean, if you are going to tell me that I am doing it wrong, rather than as you suggested watch Bobbi Brown or someone on YouTube show me how to do it, I would like to take lessons from a master such as yourself. Especially when I check for videos on dark skin eyeshadow everyone under the sun is doing dark and smokey and taupe... is that what I am to be limited to because I am dark skinned? If you knew me personally, you would know that those colors do not in any way match my personality or style.

So, here is my challenge to you. I am woman enough to stand up and say Here I am, and Here is what I am trying. If you have as much confidence in your own skills as you certainly have shown you have in your opinions of others choices, than maybe you will be willing to help me correct my " mistakes".

Thanks again for reading. Have a colorful day.
