All in a day's work

See what happens on an innocent Sephora outing? Dangerous. But all this, and those who know me will be proud: not a single pot of shimmery highlighter or lip gloss - my big weaknesses. Still. Damage.

















I'm outing my hopeless consumerism for a good cause, though: to announce that I have my red! It's Nars (big surprise after seeing that photo, right?) "Cruella." HA!

I was a little shocked with the color at first - as I always am with matte red - but I took it as a good sign that while I was in the chair with Mr. FancyPants Makeup Artist Straight from the Marc Jacobs Show, three customers asked what red it was and bought it. Even I have to admit that's a sign to get over my fear and go red.

What do you think? (No makeup here but lips, folks - I'll be much more pulled together on the big day, never fear. Not to mention, um, tanner. Holy whiteness!)

Gorgeous! So perfect. Not a three-alarm red, just perfect.

Looks great.

That is the perfect color for you! I may have to try it when I'm there next month. Or we can go on a lipstick hunt for me - a red for a redhead!

It is GORGEOUS!

One thing, my lesson learned: bring a tissue down the aisle to wipe his red lips off BEFORE you get those wonderful "we're walking down the aisle as a married couple" shots. Mr. D has smudgy red all over his face from "the kiss."
