Hello I'm Susan Diamond they call me Chief of Pray and I'm one of the women of prayables.com, an online prayer community for women of all faiths. I'm here with my BFF, my bestfriend Debbie Winton.

What we're talking about today is drugstore makeup so if you want to check it out on the site just type in "drugstore" in the search bar. So Debbie, are you up for hearing a little of m blog talk about drugstore makeup?

Debbie:
Absolutely I would love that. I was thinking about that, as a daughter of a pharmacist I really appreciate drugstore make up, so go for it.

Susan:
I forgot about that, so when you were a kid you would hang around your dad's drugstore and check out the makeup?

Debbie:
Well they didn't actually have that much I sort of asked him if he would do that but that wasn't his thing but I have a special affinity for drugstores

Susan:
Okay well I will start out be sort of blog talking and I'm going to tell you that...

Blog is read.

Debbie:
I love it I'm actually laughing to myself because I greatly admire, have read the biography and have so much respect for Eleanor Roosevelt but I got to tell you I still think that's a stretch on the beauty meter.

Susan:
Well she's a gosh darnette and can't we give her beauty points to those who are a gosh darnette?

Debbie:
I totally respectful of her but as you're reading that and i had read your blog before I did just have to giggle on the Eleanor Roosevelt/Beauty o meter. But on the same tone and I don't always agree with you on things but this really resonated with me because I did realize after reading this how much I think about people in terms of beauty and have really gotten away from that concept of physical beauty because there's so many people that I meet that are just warm and beautiful and creative and smart and as you say confident and I think 'gosh that's a really beautiful women' now if I would step back and look at what is considered to be classic beauty it certainly wouldn't fit in that realm. But I do love the idea of appreciating of how someone can light up a room and not necessarily be the most "beautiful" women in the room.

Susan:
I think the opposite holds true too. I remember I was sitting with David, my husband, and we were looking through me highschool yearbook. And just from those little tiny square pictures he would say to me "oh she is beautiful she must have been so popular" and I'd look at who he picked and inevitably it was absolutely not a popular girl and when I would show him the pictures of who was considered beautiful in our high school he would never believe that that was the beautiful picture because what can you tell from a picture?

Debbie:
Well also think back about it Susan, think about who was considered popular or beautiful or intimidating. I mean when I look back and think about who the heck was intimidating when I was 15 years old it actually makes me laugh. I mean I've been fortunate in growing up to be a very confident person and you know whether beautiful or not I'm not even talking about that I'm talking about the fact that I've grown into a very confident women and it makes me laugh and almost sad in a way that these make-up bee girls are the ones that intimidated me a lot

Susan:
It's true I was a confident teenager and even being a confident teenager I think it's just that stage in life when you doubt your own look. Of course I have looked back on some pictures and braces and glasses.

Debbie:
You were always so darn cute I think.

Susan:
I can definitely show you some pictures that changed that. What's in your makeup bag?

Debbie:
Well I think it's the whole other side of it. Yes, in my makeup bag is...although we never talked about makeup brands...but it is similar to yours. And I don't even know what the brands are. I buy Allmay stuff because I seem to later in life have developed allergies to certain makeup. So I buy you know Allmay kind of things and it's all from my neighborhood Walgreens I have found myself the most darling young girl who works at Walgreens who has become my beauty consultant.

Susan:
Oh I have one too, Tess!

Debbie:
Yeah! I love it. So she is my consultant, and I have to tell you I'm 56 years old and I'm feeling pretty cute.

Susan:
Now this is radio so anybody who is listening to radio and does not know Debbie has absolutely the most beautiful skin that seriously, don't strangers stop you and tell you what nice skin you have?

Debbie:
They do but that is totally in the genes. I use, from Walgreens, you know, Cuve moisturizer, which is a little expensive for Walgreens, it's $10 a bottle, but it's hypo-allergenic. So it's totally a Walgreens skin regime. I just had a facial and the person was commenting that she couldn't believe, you know, how close to perfect my skin was. But that's besides the point. The point being, I just actually threw out a drawer full of expensive makeup because my daughter convinced me that I had to go to Nordstrom to buy expensive makeup.

Susan:
Oh! I have been there many times thinking there is a difference between MAC and Maybeline.

Debbie:
Exactly and it's stuff that i've had in there for years and never use it, I finally decided to throw it all out. It was killing me because I'm such an economical person, to throw things out, I recycle everything, but clearly you can't recycle makeup so there's a shelf life which bothers me. And there was no benefit to it, it absolutely goes against my very economical brain. I feel like I dress real well but I dress only on sale, I even like the frequent thrift stores. People are always amazed that a lot of the things I have are very inexpensive. And that goes with makeup and I feel beautiful and I'm not talking about about I feel beatiful because my eyelashes are long. I feel beautiful because of the filled spirit that I have every single day.

Susan:
Well on that note I will confirm that you are beautiful and we're going to finish up with a prayer reading, a prayer from Prayables.com and it's called "I am ageless." This was written by Heidi Haller, one of our prayer makers. "I am Ageless."

Prayer is read.

Amen to that and I want to thank you Debbie for being here with us today and thank you to everyone for listening. We have a new Prayables radio show from one of the women of Prayables, incredibly talented, her name is Twana James, it will air tomorrow Thursday, November 11th for Veteran's Day, 7:00 Eastern.
