In makeup, as in home decorating, much of the art lies in drawing the eye to attractive traits (the eyes, the art above the couch), and keeping the eye from being distracted by things you'd rather leave unnoticed (acne, a tangle of cords). Since the things that aren't supposed to be there demand attention, they've got to be disguised.
This weekend, we're going to erase the chipped paint and scuff marks on the walls with paint touch-up pens, the home owner's "concealer," and restore our walls to the smooth, un-distracting blank canvases they're supposed to be.
