Because I love their voices, the emotion, and Lee Pace. I want to sing this with him or just have him sing it to me *swoon*

When you’re over thirty-five..make-up must be sparing. There’s nothing worse than a middle-aged woman with too much make-up. It accentuates her age, not lessens it. Only a very young, unlined face can stand the lavish emphasis of too many cosmetics. The effect must be delicate, artistic, the possibility never strained that it can, after all, be natural, so the beholder is left wondering which it is, art or nature.
