I was turned down today, but rejection never felt so good.

I went in for this mineral makeup infomercial. When I submitted for it, I told them I have blemishes and dark circles under my eyes. I spend most of my time under fluorescent lights, so I usually have one or two blemishes at a time ALL THE TIME since I started working in an office. And I've been waking up insanely early so I could feng shui my home office, so I have some bags under my eyes.

I do take care of my skin. I use Susan Lucci's Youthful Essence microdermabrasion stuff. I wash my face with Burt's Bees Lemon Poppyseed Scrub. I use i.d. Bare Escentuals mineral makeup so I treat my pores right. My doctor has me on a regimen of vitamins and vegetables so I can be thin with good skin. But my skin is far from perfect. With all the preventative steps I take, I still have breakouts and bags.

When I met with the casting directors, they told me I had perfect skin. They were looking for someone with really damaged skin I guess. I was rejected, but for all the right reasons. I missed out on this particular infomercial, but I feel good about it.

And my friend Boise said that it's good to be told "No" when auditioning because it gets you closer to your next yes.
