What side of the car is the gas cap on?

My sister traveled extensively for over a decade for her work. She was in a new rental car every week.

Recently she was driving a new car and needed gas. She asked me which side of the car the gas cap is on. I said just look at the gas pump icon on the dashboard and look for what side the arrow is on next to the gas pump icon.


She looked at me like I was crazy. She looked at the dash and she said oh that’s what that is. She has been in a new rental car every week for a decade and never knew that.

The lesson is don’t take anything that you know for granted.

Just because it feels like common knowledge to you, it isn’t to everyone.

I share this example because more often than not people I work with say why hasn’t anyone told me this, or, I wish I knew this years ago!

I tried very hard not to take what I know about makeup for granted when I wrote Face with a Heart Mastering Authentic Beauty Makeup.


If not for yourself, who do you wish knew more about makeup, or needs a better relationship with makeup.


What does a better relationship with makeup even mean?


Using makeup is a reality for so many people.

The relationship I want to foster between people and their makeup is that the purpose is clear and the technique is solid.  A relationship where there is no trial by error. It is as simple as looking at the arrow on your dashboard to know which side the gas cap is on.

Every time I hear a client say I wish someone had told me this years ago, I know that Face with a Heart creates a better relationship between them and their makeup.


I urge you to share this knowledge with someone you know. Be it your daughter, your niece, your friend’s daughter, your friends, even yourself. It will make this one aspect of their life easier and by far more confident.


This book can be purchased on and I am running a December Holiday Special of $24.95 as opposed to $29.95.

I also want you to know that Amazon sells this book for $29.95, however along with it you also receive a free e-version of the book. I think this is also of great value in our portable e-lives.

It is not important to me whether you get this book from or Amazon. What is important is that we get this book into the hands of those we truly love and give them a better relationship with makeup throughout their lives.
