Nuances of Maquillage

Picture 768-02

Attended a wedding anniversary dinner last night. It rained heavily so I opted to dress casually and put on a soft smoky eye and salmon pink lips. Got compliments from Miss Shey who teaches and moonlights as a makeup artist. The conversation focused mostly on makeup. The funniest one-liner came from the mister.  “In-drawing.” But who cares about men’s opinon on makeup, anyways? Only us women will understand.
