I'm going to a Mary Kay party next week. I've never been to one. I don't do the whole "makeup" thing, beyond concealer and foundation and a bit of mascara every once in a while. It's not that I'm a tomboy - I tend to dress in really feminine clothes, for instance - but when I was a teenager I had lots of bad allergies and really sensitive skin, and couldn't wear much makeup, so I never got into the habit of using it regularly. I've also never really done anything very "girly" as I'm really a loner, so I don't even know what happens when a bunch of women get together for an event like this.

But all of my friends who are going are very into makeup and have all been to stuff like this before. There will just be five of us, all girls that I know pretty well but never hang out with without a group of guys around as well.

Have any of you ever been to one? Is it going to be as weird as I think it will be? I'm afraid it'll be awkward, because I never know what to talk to around other females. What do women talk about when they get together? I really need to figure this out, not just for this party, but because I'm getting married in November and have two female-only bridal showers coming up, during which I will probably be at a total loss (I've never been to a bridal shower before!).

What should I expect when it comes to the makeover itself? How much money should I spend ordering stuff because the woman is giving us free makeovers? I don't have a whole lot of money to spend - none of us do, we're all college students with very little money to spare - but I don't want to seem rude by not purchasing "enough."

Yeah, so this is a weird series of questions. I'm just way more nervous about my "relaxing" girls' night out than I should be, and having an idea of what to expect will probably calm me down a lot.
