This was the nightmare I dealt with on one too many occassions until I discovered this spray which, I am guessing, hydrates my skin after using the foundation, reabsorbs the powder and auto-corrects overuse of the powder for a perfect matte finish - lifesaver!!!
Back to what was mentioned on the radio station:
One listener called in to mention a "light brown polish" -literally, the product made by Kiwi and Nuggets of this world - is used on the face for a even and matte look. P-o-l-i-s-h! Light brown... over the face - who the... what the... was my reaction too... One of the show's host joked about what would happen if you run a shoe-shine cloth over who ever uses this' face... one question though: shoe cream, wax or liquid polish?
Another "anonymous" caller called in to say that he had run out of hair spray/moisturiser for his afro and opted to use.. wait for it... cooking oil (no, not olive oil), cooking oil for a glossy finish. okay - i know certain oils are good for the hair - but need to be washed out before sashaying in the streets on a hot day for obvious reasons. The caller went on to talk about how he, yes HE, had overused it and how it ran on the sides during the day - can you imagine? Now I know i know why mini-bus taxis have a "I like your perm, but not on my window" signs plastered around them.
And the shaving off of eyebrows and (poorly) stenciling them back on using what could only be described as a marking pen - the finished look: Bobo the clown! Why would anyone want to walk around looking like Pee-wee? really now!
I just had to share the strange, weird and... WEIRD things people get up to when having a 1-0n-1 with the mirror.
