7/52 - Project 52

Earlier this week I was running some late night errands and one of the stops was to Macy's to use a new gift card for some foundation.  It was minutes before closing time and for some reason the gal really wanted to give me the royal treatment makeover (um, maybe because in my sweatshirt and old jeans she could tell I needed it?).  I am pretty natural usually when it comes to make-up, give me a bit of foundation, mascara and chapstick and I'm good to go.  

On this day I didn't have anything on (I'd been home all day with the kids) so the Lancome gal had fun trying all their latest make-up collection on me, including dark teal eyeshadow and a liquid eyeliner.  It was something. :)  When I got home (nearing 10 pm) I decided to take some self-portraits of myself (for practice) before washing it all off.  Here you go, the many faces of me:

 Sadly my camera doesn't deal with low-light of high ISOs well, so these are very "warm"...

Those are awesome! You are so beautiful!! How lovely that you are beautiful on the inside too. :D I love the "warmth" of these (cause I know you are "pale" like me). :D

Thanks Lisa - always a bit unnerving to post pics of just myself. :)

Courtney said...

hee hee I love these :) Looks like you had fun with it :)

Actually it was kind of fun, but a little scary trying to balance my camera in one hand and hold it far away to get the pic. Next time I think I'd probably try using a tripod.

Becca - the make-up gal was great, too bad I have ZERO skill with make-up application.

Alicia - you are always so kind. :)
