I now know why i don't wear dark lipstick often. It ages me. I don't realize until I leave my house and catch a glimpse in a window or see a photograph after the fact. I look as though I am in costume, and my nose looks larger than usual. Really shows you can't believe the mirror. Grab your digital camera, take a bunch of pics and pull them up on your computer. Save them to a private album on Snapfish or Shutterfly and use them for reference. I see this and don't think I will do matte dark red lipstick again unless it is Halloween.
Hair is a bit wacky since I can't wash it yet. It got all wavy from the shower steam, rain the day before and sleeping on it. I coaxed a few more tidy waves with my curling iron. I blew the bangs straight. They didn't look so greasy in real life, the pictures were taken after runnng around after the dog and rushing. It's very warm and humid today and I got a tad… well my grandmother would have said “I was glistening.”
Makeup is the L'Oreal Bare Naturale foundation, Body Shop stick concealer, Nars Orgasm blush. On lips is L'Oreal Endless lipstick in Real Raisin. On eyes, I used the ivory from the Revlon ColorStay Quad in Neutral on the inner corners and on upper lid. heavy line of Maybelline Ultra liner in black, cat-eyed on the sides. L'Oreal Voluminous mascara in black.
White men's shirt stolen from my husband. Dark Ultra Lowrise Flare jeans from Gap. Black city boots from Aldo. Silver medium sized hoops and silver cuff. Don't plan on wearing this ensemble and makeup combo EVER again. We all make mistakes.
