Bulk Tailoring - Possible? Advisable?

I am a petite, early-30s, hourglass-figured woman who has finally decided to get a bunch of (mostly) business casual items tailored, but need advice about the best plan of attack - because they are numerous, and varied. I would like to get the 20 items in the "to get tailored" area of my closet comprising tops, wrap dresses, and pants hemmed, have tab-button sleeves or necklines tacked closed, and/or waists taken in (pants). Will a tailor want to do these in multiple batches? I have questions about etiquette, expectations, ballpark timelines, and tailoring interactions in general... [more inside]

There's a type of product literally called "makeup", what is it?

Here's an example of makeup. Here are even more from the same page: makeup and makeup. What is this product, what is it for. This has been mystifying me for several years and it is very difficult for me to Google because I get back responses having to do with what I think of as makeup: lipstick, eyeshadow, concealer, foundation, etc. Makeup is all of those things. But makeup is also apparently a specific type of cosmetic...what does it do? Hopefully this will be the easiest question in the world to answer for someone who knows even a little bit more about cosmetics than I do.

Lightweight plus size turtleneck shirts (for spies)

I'm looking for recommendations for plus size lightweight turtleneck or mock neck shirts. I found one at Target on clearance, and it's not even on their website. I'd prefer black, cotton and spandex or jersey. Size 2xl (20-22.) This shirt makes me feel like a spy. Bonus for other spy clothes that can be worn to work.

Explain makeup to a someone who doesn't wear it please?

I know how some makeup works. For example, I understand that foundation is for covering up imperfections in the skin, such as acne scars. Lipstick draws attention to the lips, a sexual connotation, or a cultural affectation. Toner accentuates the cheekbones and thins the face. Is there more? I would like to know. [more inside]
