It's a Cover Up!

So, according to Ted Long, what is the next in


Well, having established his credentials and good faith, Ted was advising us on make-up strategy.

Ted's clients have included Batman, Robert Beltran, and George C. Scott.

I learned this one the hard way. Tried to cover Roy's bloodstains on the carpet with concealer. Even the DC cops figured that one out. Thank goodness for nullification votes.

Remember, covering up is for the pros in the studios-- especially those working with Barbara Walters. Makeup is making the best of highlights and shadows (or simply staying out of the former and in the latter, if you're Barbara Walters)...

Never use soap. Never. It could clog your pores resulting in pimples and blackheads.

What to use instead of soap? There are many options.

A strigil.

Hydrochloric acid.

Okay...if you can not use soap directly on your face or a face cloth...I guess that really does cover never use soap.

I wonder if the DC universe MAC and Lancome have alien skin tones in their palettes.
Starfire WAS a model, after all.

Oh...that's a thought

MAC: Beauty for those from the stars!

Catchy slogan, no?

Oh God, I'm laughing so hard that the dogs are staring at me in consterntion. A strigil. A STRIGIL!

So very very perfect.

Of course we all know not to use soap. Mommy spit is the best for removing smudges.
