Not MUM, but I don't think white eyeliner works. It doesn't look good. Instead, try a tiny bit of champagne/pearl beige fat eye pencil in the inner corners, top and bottom. Not in the lash line. Be sparing. It gives a dewy, wide-eyed look. [ Reply | More ]

The college my freshman daughter attends has students who were mostly in the top ten percent of their high schools. At orientation, students were reminded that they all aren't going to be in the top ten percent of the college. Also, the first semester of college is important for social reasons. It's when kids make friends they may have for the rest of their lives. How does your child know grades yet? It's finals week for many schools. (You really shouldn't be concerned with your child's perfectly fine grades, by the way. The only concern a parent should have is if child is really floundering, suicidal or showing signs of mental illness.) [ Reply | More ]
