Why I'm Scarred For Life: A Foundation For Disaster

August 6, 2008 by kristindiva

I was part of this teen modeling group in high school (in the 80's, yes) and we had a mid-August “Rock and Roll Back to School” fashion show at the local mall. They put a ton of foundation, powder, and blush on us. After the show, my friends tell me that this boy I’ve been crushing on saw me and he has invited us to this cookout to meet up with him and his friends. I tell them I needed to wash my face but, no, they said the makeup looked awesome and that I should leave it on.

Two hours later, we get to this cookout, it’s about 100 degrees and I’m there in full makeup but in a tank top and cutoffs. He and I sneak off a sweaty hour after that, kiss, and separate.  Next thing you know, one of my friends says, “You guys were kissing, weren’t you?” I ask why and she brings him over. The bottom of his face is covered in my makeup, like he’s been mugged by a pack of drag queens. You can only imagine what my face looks like.

Needless to say, I’ve been afraid of foundation and powder ever since. Luckily for me, some wonderful people created Benefit You Rebel Tinted Moisturizer ($28). I get the coverage I need without transferring it to anything (or anyone) else.

David, if you’re out there, I’m still so sorry about that.
