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.
