shoe polish on face
Hi, I would like to find out if shoe polish can be used as makeup, applied on the face as foundation or base. I met a lady yesterday who uses the light brown polish and said she has used it for years. I must admit her facial skin looks great but wondering how long it would stay looking that Good. Please advice.

Shoe polish was not developed to use as foundation and if you use it on your face, you will do so at own risk.
