made over

Today my bff Jen & I went to the Clinique "event" in Portland where we met "artists" who, in a kind but unmistakable way, told us we were less than the perfection we thought we were. That is to be expected, of course, but it still makes one feel a little defensive. Until they start spreading nice-smelling, pretty stuff all over my face; then I'm convinced that I've been doing everything completely wrong and am willing to spend a day's pay on whatever she brings out of the case.

Plus a French manicure that I must show off before it chips away in two hours

I know I don't look dramatically different in this photo, but the lipstick, multiple eye shadows, & Lotus blush are huge steps for me.

Now I'm on my way to a Blazers game with far too much makeup on. I'll pretend I'm from Lake Oswego.

This yuppie Barbie comes with your choice of Rolls Royce convertible or Hummer H2. Included are her own Starbucks cup, credit card and country club membership. Also available for this set are Shallow Ken and Private School Skipper. You won't be able to afford any of them.

Lake Oswego Barbie sounds just like Rancho Santa Fe Barbie!

You look just a smidge more beautiful than before (just enough to justify the expenditure).

glI'm sorta jealous I couldn't come today. You both look so pretty, but really, I've come to expect that, clinique event or not.

(You are wearing lipstick. I love it.)

Have fun at the game.

I don't know why there's a 'gl' before my comment.

I must be stuttering again.

I think I saw your Barbie at my Vons today. She's far from home.

I tagged you with a meme. Sorry.

I REALLY love your "cut" ... Your profile photo does not do justice to your hair. Very fetching, indeed!

So what you doin' later Hot Sauce?


Suzanne said...

Love the make-over, though it wasn't earth shatteringly different... you are a pretty chick anyway. I mean, come on, you get your own Barbie!

I think the best kind of makeup = the kind that doesn't make you look made up!

You guys look great - nice lipstick BTW.
