I went and got my make-up did.

Yesterday I stepped in to Sephora for the first time. I was like a lost little girl with no sense of direction, hoping that mom would come sweep me away from this awkward situation that was about to go down. But actually, it wasn't all that awkward. Nicole was so great and I instantly confessed to her that i had no idea what i was doing in this store. She prompted me with questions:
Her: Do you like powders or liquids?
Me: I don't know.
Her: Are you a light or dark shade?
Me: I don't know.
Her: Is there a brand you usually go with?
You get the idea. She had to start from scratch with me. We went through and found a primer, foundation, and concealer that worked for me. When she was all done I looked in the mirror and about died. Not because she did a poor job but because I was horrified about how pasty white I was! Uhh... summer tan needs to get here soon!
After getting my make-up did, it was then night and day for me. I trounced around the store trying on all kinds of golden shimmery eyeshadows and bold tangerine lipsticks. I seriously gained so much confidence with color in that store. Believe it or not, when I save my pennies I will be getting Smashbox's Fuschia Flash.
It is dang bold. And I love it.
Because I'm cheap, I didn't buy anything but instead went to Target today and got some of e.l.f 's lipgloss and lipstick. I don't recall the shade name but it is some sort of mild hot pink that I am in love with. I'm feeling more girly and powerful each second longer that I wear it. There's no going back....
*** note: this is my first photo ever that I have taken of myself where the camera is present in the photo. It's awkward. But it was more awkward to have someone else take just a photo of my face, so oh well, you're stuck with a pic of the camera hanging out there awkwardly in space.
