I’m getting author pictures taken today and I’m so nervous. I’ve been fretting about what to wear, how to do my hair (though admittedly I don’t really have more than one hair style) and how to do my make-up. Now I’ve shared on here before that I’m really not much of a fashionista. I’m a casual kind of girl so I’m most comfy in jeans and a t-shirt with bare feet. So I’ve never been super girly when it comes to clothes. But when it comes to make-up, oh, I’m all about the glam!
Now I don’t wear much make-up on a day-to-day basis since I don’t work outside of the home anymore. But when I do put it on, I like to try new techniques, new colors, whatever to get a different look. Mostly I’m talking about eye make-up here. I’ve never been one for bright lipstick, though I love shiny lips, but prefer a natural look there. I don’t know, I always feel like I look like a vampire when I have real color on my lips. But eye make=up, I go all kinds of bold. I love the smokey look or the light and natural look, I love the colored eye-shadow from the 80′s look. It’s always kinda of been my thing.
I used to love putting make-up on all my girlfriends. But you learn really fast that not everyone’s eyelids are made the same. I happen to have pretty good lids for eye-shadwo as my eyes are deep-set. Haven’t done make-up on anyone in a while, but I do look forward to teaching my girls someday all about the joys of make-up.
So how about you? Are you a glam girl or do you prefer to go au naturel? Do you have favorite brands or products or do you just go on a whim and buy what looks good? Any photo tips for me?
