Little girls and makeup... the fascination has no end.

Makeup certainly is a powerful thing... but one that we shouldn't have to fret over till Evie is at least 35 years old and we've finally let her out of the nunnery.

"How do you put makeup on your mind?"
a 4 year old girl, when told she should "make up her mind."

"I don’t think makeup is rocket science or the cure for cancer ."
– Cindy Crawford

"I am intrigued by glamorous women.
A vain woman is continually taking out a compact to repair her makeup.
A glamorous woman knows she doesn't need to."
-Clark Gable

“Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I'm just a girl who wishes for the world.”
-   Marilyn Monroe

"I mean, look, I wear makeup in films. I don't wear makeup in real life.
It's just part of the gig, that's all." - Bruce Willis

"All right, Mr. De Mille, I'm ready for my closeup" - Norma Desmond

Une naturellement belle petite grenouille!
(A naturally beautiful little frog.
En français, s'il vous plaît!)

"By watching her I began to think there was some skill involved in being a girl."
- Scout, To Kill a Mockingbird


  1. Oh, I love the one of her with the Marilyn quote! The excitement and wonder of discovery on her face is fabulous.

    And thank you for the Clark Gable quote. I now feel sooo much better about never checking my makeup.

  2. Love this post...quotes and pics were beautiful! :)

  3. Those are some cute pictures! Unfortunately, Art loves playing with makeup, too!
