Thank goodness. I had the means and privilege, but still navigating abortion care in Virginia was a high-stress nightmare, one where it’s easier to go to DC or Maryland depending on your location. I can’t imagine what other women had to go through. Read more

Clinton actually called Gabbard an “asset” of the right/GOP, not Russia. And so far she’s done that and everything extra in the last few years. Read more

“The girls”? Gabbard is awful, and I’m not a big Clinton fan either, but why are you demeaning them (and all women candidates...and all women who strive to be taken seriously in their professional roles...and all women) like this? Read more

You know, when I first saw and heard her I liked Tulsi Gabbard. And I have my problems with Hillary Clinton. But then someone told me about Gabbard and Syria and I read up a bit. Then I found out that Gabbard got elected to her first public office by taking a stand against Gay Marriage. Like that was her main campaign Read more

Fuck the monarchy as a general rule, but damn it’s wild whenever a story involving Wallis Simpson doesn’t also note that she was, you know, a Nazi. Kinda one of those things that should follow your name around forever.

ok, it’s hilarious you say that about the mascara/ “baby goth”, because it reminds me that once when I was a teen a makeup counter lady literally tried to get my friends and I to buy brown mascara (instead of the black we were purposefully purchasing...because we were emo...) and she was like, “We don’t want to look Read more

FORGOT TO ADD!! Since she is young, I’d start her out with liquid liner and/or gel pot + Angled brush. I started using liquid eyeliner when I was like, 13, (when urban decay was still at emo/punk CD stores lol) and it greatly helped me have a steady hand later in life. Gel + Brush is an easier way to get the matte Read more

It... kind of sounds like she doesn’t actually want to wear makeup? But all of her friends are doing it and pressuring her? Slap is not meant for teenage skin. That’s for the olds with pigmentation/acne scarring/dark circles, etc. And by ‘olds’ I mean, of drinking age and above. Have her start like we all did with Read more

Some of the chain drug stores are doing this now as well, probably at a lower price point.   My local Rite Aid has a makeup counter and a dedicated person to help trial & advise. Read more

Nobody will give a shit about this in two weeks. This is just a way to get performative Twitter dorks to yell at each other.

I agree with VB’s suggestion of getting a makeup artist to teach her how to apply makeup. Even though my mom wears makeup all the time, that’s what she did with me. I remember we focused on one feature at a time. I went once for eye makeup, once to see the best lipstick colors for me and once for foundation,concealer Read more

They also include prominent elected officials like Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and most recently Pramila Jayapal; all women of color, not angry white leftist men behind computer screens. Where do they fit in the culture Sanders has permitted? Are they included, or deliberately Read more

I don’t necessarily disagree with everything she says about the 2016 stuff, but her campaign in 2008 wasn’t sweetness and light. Also, discounting Bernie’s present-day supporters is myopic. Read more

So, one of the best resources (and least-used) is product-dependent. If you want to get her a small neutral palette, the palette should come with instructions for how to create certain looks using those specific colors (i.e. the original naked palettes had booklets on “everyday naked” and “smokey naked” etc.). that’s Read more

Department store counters and Sephora will do your makeup either for free or with the expectation that you buy one or two things. I know it’s expensive, but my mom took me to sephora when I first started wanting to wear some simple makeup and the people there were GREAT with helping my choose a couple very natural Read more

This is a great idea! If you have a Sephora or Ulta nearby, you can get something like this done there too.

I actually like it, but I work out in cheap ass sweat pants and old band tee shirts I’m too ashamed to wear anywhere else, sooo... I also don’t do the whole athletic wear as casual clothes thing (not knocking people who do though). I didn’t buy 10 of the exact same black tee shirt and wear my skinny jeans long enough Read more

I’m more concerned that the whole line looks like expensive Harry Potter merch for Team Gryffindor.
