A couple weeks ago on Hardwick’s Front Porch Forum, someone called Tiana asked if there was anyone who could help her with her hair and makeup for an important date with her boyfriend. Front Porch Forum is an online, daily community forum, which is like a bulletin board at a local general store. You can find secondhand tires there. Or read complaints about the Selectboard. Every Vermont town’s got a Front Porch Forum and you have to be from that town to be on it.
Since Tiana’s new to town, she thought she might have luck finding someone to help her get ready for her date through the Forum. And she did.
Here is her original posting:
Makeup for Special Occasion
I’m looking for someone who’d be willing to do my makeup (and possibly hair?) on the 23rd of this month.
Just something simple with my eyes and something to hide some red spots. Is there a way to make an illusion of a skinner face? I think thats a thing, right?
I understand it’s a long shot and I don’t have much money.
I usually don’t like anything thats considered “girly”. However I want to surprise my boyfriend for our first anniversary.
I have a nice dress picked out with matching press on nails.
The issue is I have no clue how to do makeup. YouTube tutorials have never done me any good considering I don’t own any makeup and I have a very round, chubby face.
Thank you for reading!
