"I just know that I'm gonna smear it all over my face."

Meet Madeline. She hasn't worn makeup since she performed in an orchestra when she was 14 years old.

She says that when she was a kid, she dressed like a boy. Actually, a lot of people thought she was a boy.

And although she grew out of that phase, she never really developed a burning desire to wear makeup, like ever.

And although she grew out of that phase, she never really developed a burning desire to wear makeup, like ever.

In the spirit of stepping outside her comfort zone (which she's been trying to do more of lately), she let a makeup artist do her up, and wear it for an entire day.

They decided to go with a simple everyday look.

It was definitely a foreign experience for Madeline to have someone primping and priming her face, but she was a trooper!

Yes, her eyes totally watered after some eyeliner and mascara. It happens to the best of us, girl!

And then it was time for the big reveal!

Madeline loved how the makeup evened out her skin tone, how it covered up the acne, and how it didn't make her shiny.

Then it was time to show her co-workers her new look to see what they thought, prompting reactions like this one.

"You look amaaazing!"

When Madeline went to lunch, she quickly discovered the art of eating while not totally ruining your lipstick. It's tough, huh?

And let's just say her family was a big fan of the look, with her father suggesting she do that a little more often with the eyes. Awww!!!

The only one left to see her was Mark. Oh, it's just Madeline's fiancé, NBD!

Did you do something different with your face?

At the end of the day, even though Madeline was glad she tried something new by donning a face full of makeup, she said it felt like she had a great Halloween costume on all day, but was fully expecting to go home and change.

"It just didn't look like me." Do you, Madeline!
