I like wearing the dark eye liner, or rather dark brown eye shadow (always smudged to soften the look, of course!) because it showcases my dark eyes.
    AHA!! What's the connection between the dramatic look and anxiety? (see questions below, too)

    Gotcha. I didn't take offense anyway.

    Upon moving to NC I found that woman here don't wear much makeup at all. I had to tone it way down because the Senoritas in Miami liked the dramatic look. I'm not sure if they were all depressed although our DR neighbor did tell us that all the woman in Miami were addicted to Xanax.
    AHA!

    Two questions:
    1. Where is the association from? Is it cultural or universal?
    2. Why do depressed or cynical people wear clothes that suggest cynicism/depression/dramatic intensity? I can think of a few reasons, but I'm not sure: (a) it calms them down and is a form of release/expression (b) it acts as a signal to warn and attract others (c) social identification with like-minded people, a way to relieve loneliness (my money's mostly here)

    3- Enter this into your Location Bar. That lands you in the picture directory of the original website (a blog) Jen got the pic from.
    4- Locate the name of the pic she linked to: handgjohnson.jpg
    5- Look at when it was last modified: 28-Feb-2007
    6- Now go to the homepage of that blog.
    7- Look for the February 2007 entry... and voila!

    (That was way more than 3 steps. Did you manage to follow ?)

    I was a teenager in the 1980s when we used to take eye pencil, melt with match and then make the whole rim black...well I most often used smoke blue. Almost everyone did it back then.

    I wear deeper red shades of lipstick because my husband digs it. It is actually a compromise because he would prefer screaming red.

    Amy Wineho - FO SHO depressed...drug addiction. She looks more histrionic with that absurd (ABSURD!) makeup.

    I don't know... *shrugging shoulders again*

    If I really think about it, in "those" times, I was wearing more make-up... period. I think I was trying to hide myself behind a "mask". I didn't like what I had seen without make-up. Thankfully, I only do my eyes now, very little blush and very light lip tint (I generally don't like lipstick).

    BTW, Tammy Faye, poor woman... she had her eyes and lips tattood (sp?)


    Two questions:
    1. Where is the association from? Is it cultural or universal?
    2. Why do depressed or cynical people wear clothes that suggest cynicism/depression/dramatic intensity? I can think of a few reasons, but I'm not sure: (a) it calms them down and is a form of release/expression (b) it acts as a signal to warn and attract others (c) social identification with like-minded people, a way to relieve loneliness (my money's mostly here)
    I have no idea why anybody dresses the way they do. I have always dressed very conservatively, so my anxious days didn't reflect on my clothing... just my make-up.
