This tends to happen whenever I come across pics of myself from the ’90s. Back when the pictures were taken, I probably thought I was blazing beauty trails and setting trends, but yeah, that was usually not the case, LOL!
Most of my cringe-worthy moments revolve around lipstick, and I have a ton of terrible pics from my sophomore year in college. I was going through a phase where I loved the look of really dark red lips — so dark they were almost black — and whenever I’d go out at night, I’d line my lips with black eyeliner (!), and then fill them in with the darkest red I could find.
Oh, but it got worse…
After my dark red phase, I was all about dark purple lip liner, on top of which I’d apply a frosty, peachy beige lipstick, and then a dot of clear gloss smack dab in the center of my lower lip.
On top of everything else, I also had really bad hair back then. One day I decided to chop my long hair down to what I called my “Dharma ‘do,” inspired by Jenna Elfman’s then short, flippy hair.
Buuuuut, it didn’t quite turn out the way I’d hoped. The layering, the waves, the shortness of it all? — disaster.
I remember catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror one morning and practically jumping out of my skin! Who the heck is that!? My hair was sticking out in all sorts of crazy directions, like a little brown Ronald McDonald.
Yep, those were rough years…
Describe a time you saw yourself wearing makeup and thought, “What was I thinking?”
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Friday is so close I can almost taste it!
I hope you a had a great, great day today. This is my favorite time of year. Sunny with a cool breeze. Perfect for eating outside, which I did again tonight. When El Hub got home from work, we ducked out for Mexican food (had the fish tacos again, yum!), and now I’m settling down to watch a little TV.
How does your Friday look? More importantly, what are you up to this weekend?
