Hair is washed, conditioned, some Brilliant Brunette Shine Shock added while wet. Dried quickly with paddle brush, round brush and dryer. It looked far better but we have the A/C off and by time I got around to photographing myself, I was a sweaty mess.
Makeup is Bare Escentuals mineral foundation in Fairly Light, Maybelline Dream Whipped Mousse blush in Strawberry on cheeks, a touch of Body Shop bronzing powder in Light over face, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – khaki on the lids. Lashes curled, Max Factor Lash Perfection in black, Maybelline Ultraliner in black on top lash line. On lips is Body Shop Lip and Cheek Tint with a touch of Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pink Afterglow over it.
Wow, in this picture you can see how my nose is still a bit swollen. Nothing major, it feels far better until i need to blow it or rub it… then owie!
I wasn't sure about this dress, but like it now that i am wearing it because I look pulled together enough for a client meeting but feel as though I am wearing my PJs. I also am not showing cleavage, which usually happens in dresses. The fabric is nice, heavier than traditional matte jersey but just as easy-care… will be good for business travel and think it could work in the colder months because of the heavier fabric and darker color.
