New sweater! I got this from Ann Taylor – it’s black, a chunky weave with dolman sleeves – I always love funky sleeves like this. I think this sweater will look fab as the weather cools – imagine it with dark skinny jeans and boots, maybe even with a short skirt and opaque tights, even with a long-sleeved fitted black tee underneath once winter hits. The pants are also Ann Taylor, but they are old. Like ready to donate old. I wore them last year and they are thin cotton sateen and stretch out in a ridiculous way. Like look cute in the AM, by noon it seems I am wearing a diaper. However with this sweater, you can’t see the crotch. I didn’t want to wear my white Gap pants because they flare, and thought these pants may give the look I am going for. Wish they were skinnier in the leg, but not bad. Shoes by Sofft, necklace fron Chico’s (have had for YEARS), silver cuff.
Hair is washed, conditioned, Frederick Fekkai’ed and then let air dry. I then took a curling iron and did a big section on either side of the face, curling out a la Farrah Fawcett. Finger combed once cool.
Makeup is Max Factor Pan-Stik in Medium, Nars blush in Orgasm, Revlon Super Lustrous lip gloss in Nude Lustre, Tarte Indelible Wink in black, DiorShow mascara in black (oh how I have missed you!).
It is AMAZING the difference between okay mascara and good mascara. This morning, using a lash curler (mine broke a couple months ago and I have been waiting to get to Sephora to get a new one) and a new tube of DiorShow, it’s a complete transformation from what I have been doing lately (scraping the bottom of the barrel of my old DiorShow, mixing with Benefit BadGal, and going sans curler). I swear, if I was stuck on a desert island and could only bring one type of makeup, it would be mascara and I would sneak in my lash curler!
As I mentioned in my previous post, they are discontinuing Shu Eumura lash curlers in the US. The salesperson in Sephora told me that they bought as many as they can. I have used Tweezerman, Japonesque and Revlon lash curlers and none of them can compare to Shu Eumura. I was tempted to buy another just so I would be prepared. If you have never used a lash curler, I recommend you try one out, you will be amazed how it opens up your eye, makes your lashes look longer, and just enhance the whole eye! If you can’t get your hands on a Shu Eumura, even one from Revlon or another drugstore brand gives enough impact to make it worthwhile.
