I know very little about make-up although back in the day I can remember that when we were going out my wife and her sisters spent an incredible amount of time putting it on and it certainly did glam them up. The eye make-up particularly was something to see and it was evident that the process of getting ready for these ladies was as much fun as the actual event to which they were going.
