I'm not sure if I pulled off a bootie outfit, but, much like the little engine, I think I did?
So, the make-up I love (Fresh) has been phasing out, which means I needed a new foundation and powder. I've tried the drugstore brands, but I have such sensitive, diva skin that only semi-stupidly priced make-up does the trick. How economically inconvenient. Had my skin decided not to take on scars like my husband takes on car projects, then I'd just say "whatever." However, looking like a pubescent teenager while teaching them does not a professional make.
ANYWAY, I went into Sephora and made a new friend. (Fun fact: I pretty much make friends with any store employee who will smile at me.) She stuck this gadget on my face, and it shot out some numbers and letters that told her my complexion "code." (That's what I'm calling it.) She entered the code into a little computer and told it what brand I liked/wanted something similar to. She browsed the options and then chose Tarte foundation. She found me a make-up brush (be gone, stupid sponges), swooped on a great primer, the magical goo, some bronzer, and hot dog, I looked like a million bucks. And spent almost as much. What sort of wizardry is this?
I might have spent quite a few magic beans, but it was wellllll worth it. I feel pretty, oh so pretty.

Comments: I am loving this crisp color combination. I didn't even consult Pinterest to think of it. Look at me and my independence. (Note: I am not wearing my rings because my finger decided to break out in a horrific, painful rash. Lovely.) I feel like these booties work because my pants aren't tucked inside of them. But, I don't really know. You can feel free to be my judge and jury.
Oh, and what do you think of my new outfit from Old Navy? I bought it, so I hope you like it.
