Ooh La La! It's Beauty Day! happens to be a current favorite. I sat in the kitchen and Pinned stuff on Pinterest while the girls prepared their day spa with some of my old make-up, and finally they were ready to receive clients.
It took a lot longer for the girls to complete my make-up application than I thought it would. I guess I needed a lot of work done. They used 3 headbands, a bunch of blush, and pulverized my eye shadows into dust. Then they pronounced me "fabulous." I'll let you be the judge...
I realize that to some people, I might look like a junkie who got loose on the Cover Girl aisle at Wal-Mart, or Jem, or a zombie; or maybe the blue streaks look like someone beat the h-e-double-hockey-sticks out of my face with a baseball bat.
But they thought I looked fantastic.
They followed up my beauty treatments with "spa food" (ice water and chocolate covered graham cracker bites). Frankly, I was just happy I didn't have to get the snacks myself.
And then we had magazine time with 2 year old magazines that Natalie found in my donate stash. It was very relaxing, as you can see.
And when spa time was over, they took me into the other room and presented me to T, who had the good sense to feign delighted shock. He later whispered that I looked like a really drunk hooker. I would usually take offense to that kind of talk, but he did have a point.
And I wore my new look for the rest of the day.
Only I didn't go outside.
If you see me sporting this hot new look next summer at the Haven Conference, I'll be sure to pass along my new beauty tips. In fact, I may just see if the Haven girls will let me run my own DIY Beauty workshop.
I bet you'd all sign up for it. Right?
