Please stay close to your friends and family....

Hello again ladies,

Like what was previously mentioned in my first blog. When I start buying enough products and learning more about each one. I'll be more than happy to make Hauls and even tutorials later on so please bear with me :-)At the moment though I think I'll make this blog into a mixed bag of nuts, writing about various topics and issues. This weekend I planned on writing an entry that discussed ways to maintain your anonymity on the internet and the possible backlash that may arise if you do not.

However, yesterday evening I received some bad news that has got me down. A very good friend of mine contacted me and said that he was just diagnosed with cancer. The type of cancer he has is really bad and the chances of survival are not good. This friend of mine isn't elderly either, he is only a few years older than me and has a 7 year old son. It gets even worse, his son recently lost his mother too so the chances of him being parent-less in the next 2-3 years are very high.

I will just conclude this post by saying this. If you have close friends or relatives then don't hesitate to spend time with them every once in a while. If they live halfway around the world then call them up or at least send an email. Let him or her know that you care about them and that you're lucky to have 'em in your life. Cherish the moments you spend with these people because life can be so unpredictable. He or she may live for the next 50 years or today could be their last day on earth. You never know.....

I'm really sorry to hear about your friend's diagnosis. I hope things work out for him and his son.
You're right though- treasure the time you spend with family & friends and try to keep in touch with those you love.

hey geeky mac boy. first, hank you for stopping by my blog. im glad you like it. second, i really like your name ^_^

anyway, to answer your question. you always need a base regardless of what kind of brand of primer you choose to use. the eyeshadows needs something to stick on or else it will fade quickly. Also, makeup will only stain your eyelids if you don't remove it with a good makeup remover so don't worry ^_^

i hope this helps :)
