Last Sunday, I went into NYC and saw the best musical ever -- "Beautiful", based on the life of singer-songwriter Carole King and using her songs. Terrific play and the lead (Jessie Mueller) deserved the Tony award she just won.
On my way in, I saw a woman who looked odd. I stared at her for a minute before figuring out why she looked odd. She had eyeshadow under her eyes and none above them. It didn't help that the color was bright green. She wasn't a hip kid trying something radical; she was a conventional 40-ish mom who wasn't wearing any other makeup.
I've seen eyeshadow applied under eyes when also put above the eyes, but I've never seen it only under. I can't say it was attractive. It looked odd.
What do you think? Have you ever done this?
Second, lately I've been watching bits of female reality TV shows, like "Real Housewives of..." and "Ladies of London." I'm shocked at the bad behavior exhibited by the women on the shows. They deliberately hurt feelings and create drama among their friends. Then they argue and say nasty things to each other.
Is this something only done on TV or do women act like this in real-life? It is horrible. It makes me want to ride my motorcycle into the desert where there isn't anyone to talk about me behind my back...
