As Good/Fake As It Gets
Nothing like a full-makeover at the MAC counter to make you look like a gussied up call-girl.
A simple trip to the MAC counter for "just lipstick" evolved [very quickly, I shamefully admit] to three eyeshadows, liquid eyeliner, blush, lipstick and bronzer.
My excuse? I was going to be a bridesmaid and my usual makeup routine [read: lip-gloss only] was sorely lacking.
After the makeover, you could tell I felt pretty good by the way I sashayed out of the store, newly purchased cosmetics bulging from the bag.
I also felt fake.
It took me like 15 minutes to scrub the layers of paint off my face. I can't imagine if I had to keep up that kind of appearance day after day. I feel sorry for those MAC girls @ the counter, seriously.
I'll take my simple lip-gloss routine any day. Even if it means I look like this: [thanks, DAWN!]
