I don't know if y'all know this about me, but management consulting isn't a real big passion of mine. I mean, it's what pays the bills, but it doesn't really feed my [black] soul, ya know? Recently, I've narrowed down my biggest passions in life as two things: food and grooming. And this is for anyone who takes issue with the superficiality of my passions. THIS IS WHO I AM!!!
So, in an effort to pursue my interests beyond just earning a paycheck, I asked a couple of my beautiful friends to come over this weekend and let me paint their faces. I was pretty pleased with the results.
Meet Anna: I've been friends with her longer than just about anyone I've known in D.C. We went to college together, although only crossed paths a couple times. It was when we met a few months after graduation in D.C. that we grew really close (read: we went out on Friday nights, let guys buy us drinks, and then recovered together on Saturday mornings and relived the night before's atrocities over brunch). She's absolutely hilarious and intelligent and, clearly, gorgeous, but I told her to come over with no makeup on and make a sour "before" face so the transformation was as dramatic as possible. She's a good friend!
I think this look suits her really well, but I'm guessing she won't want to do this every day--so to make this more daytime/work-friendly, skip the liner and swap the bright red for a cherry gloss. Unless you're me, in which case WEAR IT ALL!
I put a couple messy french braids in her hair to finish off the look. And it was this day that we discovered purple shadow looks great on her!
To make this look more wearable/work appropriate, skip the glitter liner and go for a more pastel shade of purple.
And yes, you can hire me! Email me for rates and availability if you're interested!
