Makeover Madness!!

Today's post is dedicated to one of my very best friend's mom. Mama S. is a breast cancer survivor and a good Southern woman that knows that you never leave the house without your earrings and your lipstick! And she passed that on to her daughters!! So, Mama S. this makeover is for you!!

Deby Sorensen from Avon met us bright and early at the office this morning to do a makeover on me. Do you know how very wrong it felt to leave the house without my makeup? Without my lips?! Thank God for sunglasses!! I can't believe I'm going to post a before pic of me and no eye makeup. I can just hear Ben saying now that I have beady eyes. But, here goes. <deep breath>

I look really happy about this don't I? Yeah. I need to put the sunglasses back on. But look, I am wearing PINK today!!

Deby was great. She convinced me to try some new things in regard to eye cream. Apparently, the skin around my eyes is very dry. Turning 40 does have some down sides! And I think I made her cry when I told her I wash my face with baby soap! LOL And it was so much fun! I LOVE makeup! I mean, really, who doesn't? I am IN LOVE with my new lipstick. I am a total lipstick girl. You can always throw on sunglasses to hide your eyes, but lipstick makes you look DONE. And there are tons of pretty colors!! Here's the after picture. I look much better, much more awake and DONE.

Thank you, Deby!
