Yesterday we had a bit of fun! Judy Doody - as many of you know - is doing a professional make up course, and needs lots of hands on (or face on!) practice . Dotter and I happily volunteered to be guinea pigs, so she rocked on over. OMFG. So. Much. Girly. Fun.
But as soon as Judes had laid out all her brushes - after plenty of tea and some of my freshly baked sultana scone scrolls (so nice to have the weather cool enough to bake again, I've missed it) - yes, you can guess who showed up... Lulu.
Judes was so busy working on Dotter, that we didn't see this until too late ....! Lulu apparently wanted to have 'Preeh-tay maaaaaeeh-kup' too. Sigh.
Dotter looked just STUNNING. I think she's picked up some new tricks to try (especially that eyeliner on the top lid thing)... Very Audrey Hepburn.
My look was more subtle, with a fair whack of foundation, and nice browns, to bring out my blue eyes - again, I've picked up a few tricks, like using a lash curler to 'open' up my eyes, and brown eyeliner along the top lash, or even eyeshadow applied in a line with a small brush. Make up isn't anything I 'do' much, so it was fun to have some expert advice!
Thanks Judes - it was a great afternoon! Just what we needed :)
Dotter and I were then all inspired, and found some cool 'make over' web sites - this one was the best - whaddayreckin? I've always wanted darker hair, looks like it could work!
