Well, I have to say, I didn’t know being feminine could be so much fun! I’ve been in a bit of a panic lately, because I have this beautiful dress to wear to my friend’s wedding, but I am a total loser when it comes to makeup. I can do the absolute basics (powder application, mascara, lip gloss), but anymore than that is a real challenge for me. I don’t want to wear this fabulous dress but look like drek, so I asked a good friend of mine for some help. Like a champ, she came through for me.
We had a blast today! We went to Shopper’s Drug Mart and bought the essentials . . . I didn’t even know brown eyeshadow came in so many shades! I had fun “learning” some of the basics, especially from somebody who really knows. Then we went to Moxie’s for lunch (okay, not a necessary step, but I was starving), and just had fun chatting. We never run out of stuff to talk about, and we always have a great time. Then we came home and “made me up.” It wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be, and I actually think I looked pretty good.
Then I put the dress on, and we did a photo shoot. Granted, the sun was in my eyes (so I look like I’m making a face in all the pictures), but my shoes looked HOT! I am doubly proud, since not only did I apply my own makeup, but I walked through the house, onto the deck, and down onto the lower level in my new shoes. Without falling, tripping or breaking the heels. Not bad for this self-proclaimed slob.
I don’t feel comfortable posting a picture of me in the dress on my blog, so feel free to email me if you’d like to see a picture. Or ask Vicky to share it with you – I did send it to her!
PS I haven’t washed the makeup off, cause I am just feeling so glamorous!
