Sorry for the little lapse, ladies… I’ve been off celebrating my birthday :)
I’m happy to report that each year I get better at revealing my true colors. And still I must tell you, I may always prefer showing off those of others.
Namely MAC, Nars, Shiseido, Bare Escentuals….
This year, I decided to rock true (cosmetic) colors for my nighttime bday festivities.
Friday into Saturday was Party Purple at neighborhood bar 108 in NYC’s Soho followed by a little Griffin action in the Meatpacking.
Saturday into Sunday was Birthday Blue down the shore at Avenue in Long Branch.
Sunday into Monday was Going-Out Green at Stanton Social and then Goldbar back in downtown NYC.
My makeup kit may as well be my adult carton of Crayola, and this weekend I pulled out the fun shades only.
I was coloring outside the lines and loving every second of it.
I cared less for precision and more for pigmentation and pop.
I spent lots of time on the eye and conversely, hardly any on the lip.
And of course, I whipped out my highlighter like any studious schoolkid with a backpack full of supplies.
I had a good time.
And I think the makeup both provided it and communicated it.
Let me know if this is the kind of look you’d like to see on video…
