"btw... I love this idea of working a little and then sealing the work... makes it a lot less nerve wrecking.  I hope there's no such thing as too much sealer on a face.... I've sealed about 5 times now and I have a couple more to go... we'll see. 

And, while we're talking about face-ups... the eyelashes are the hardest part for me.  I thought the eyebrows would be the hardest but no, it's the lashes... I'm at the point now with the one I'm working on where all I have to add are the lashes and blush...   I realize I probably should have done the blush first but I didn't... next time.
