This is a base so far, I'll chop and change it once it's completed Albertine tapped her foot impatiently, flicking back a stray curl of sable hair from her porcelain features as she looked around. ...

I rarely wear makeup. Close to never is even more accurate. I suppose the quote 'warts and all' may be appropriate! :lol: (Except I don't have warts... ah well).

I do enjoy wearing womans attire, but mostly only from the Victorian era.
