I’m not a great fan of wearing makeup, generally I can’t be bothered, generally I don’t leave the house, so I don’t need to. However, my skin is a bit dry and so I wanted to get a tinted moisturiser. Because I am whiter than white and rarely go out, I always have to select the lightest shades on offer, and that is usually called Ivory.
So I brought an ivory tinted moisturiser.
When I used it, it kind of looked like I’d put on a mud mask. It was noticeably darker than my skin.
I mentioned this to my hubby and daughter, and my daughter it said that was no surprise it didn’t match my skin, I don’t need ivory – I need ghost. She pointed out that she’s as pale as I am and that’s so pale we look like ghosts. Thankfully, the actual conversation was a lot more amusing than I can write it.
Then hubby chips in, says I need to go further. Where we ended up was imaging a whole new range of makeup.
Never mind Ivory, because you’re worth it.
Try Cadaver, because you look dead.
