Even Prettier in Person...

The DMV beauty bloggers met up last weekend, everyone was sweet as can be and I had a fabulous time! It was great meeting folks whose blogs I read on a daily basis. Plus it's so nice to be able to talk about the nuances of shadow colors without feeling like you're Rainman!

From left to right Shawnta, Yummy411, Juvenescent, Silvrlips and me

Figures I didn't take any pictures of my look that day. I was rushing to get there on time and when I got home the only thing I was thinking about was my bed. So here is a recreation...

Face and Lips: Not pictured Bare Minerals Foundation in Deepest Deep (used as a Concealer); Valana Minerals foundation in Amber Dream

I've been afraid of pink eyeshadow for I don't know how long but your look has inspired me to try it again! :)
