Oh, this one’s easy. A few re-doable moments come to mind, like the super skinny brows I rocked during Madonna’s Dita years (I walked around with a perpetually surprised look on my face, haha!), but the one at the top of my list is the day I walked into The Body Shop and walked out with a cah-ray-zaaaay purplish black lip liner and frosty beige lipstick combo.
I remember it like it was yesterday… [CUE FLASHBACK JINGLE AND CAMERA FADE]
I was playing with some shimmery eye shadow when one of the sales gals approached, and we started chatting. “You should try this!” she said, to which I eagerly agreed.
She did a look on my lips that was very trendy at the time (this was the mid-’90s) — a barely blended in matte purply black lip liner around the edge of the lips topped with a frosty beige lipstick. Then she popped a little clear gloss in the center.
I remember thinking, “I look like a backup dancer in a Missy Elliott video.” Sold! LOL!
Little did I realize just how completely unflattering the look was on me… The dark liner looked stark and harsh, and the frosty lipstick emphasized every lip flake.
Seriously, I don’t know why, but I wore that look for months thinking I was the sh*t!
Um, dated much? Yeah…
Your turn! If you could have a do-over for any single makeup moment in your life, what would it be?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Smoothies!!! Ooh, I made a yummy one this morning, totally on accident. I chugged it before I could take pics (it was that good), but it’s worthy of documenting here.
First, blender. Add a couple hunks of frozen banana, a cup of frozen sliced peaches, half a ripe avocado (yup, avocado; trust me on this), a tablespoon of chia seeds and a squeeze of honey. Then, in separate glass (because I think it blends better that way), stir one full scoop of this vanilla protein powder into a cup of almond milk, and add that to your blender.
Blend, and when you’re done, you’ll have a delicious avocado peach smoothie, om nom nom!
Next time I have to remember to snap a picture because it was the awesomest shade of guacamole green…
Oh, the construction guys are back and pounding away outside my window. They say “wassup!” by the way.
