Have I mentioned recently how much I love my LA blogging colleague, Sweatpants Mom?
She's funny as hell... and fun, too. And on Saturday morning, she informed me she'd arranged for a professional to make us up... would I be interested?
So I wasn't surprised when - after sending over a photo of myself - our makeup artist asked that I show up at 7:00 AM. For our 10:30 call.
I've been around on TV sets and have witnessed the miracle of good makeup. But it can only do so much.
Fortunately, we were in the very skilled and talented hands of Marygene, who has no business looking this beautiful so early on a Sunday morning.
And amazingly, the makeup stayed looking fresh ALL DAY... even after sitting in the hot sun for hours on end.
This is something I want to do the next time I've been invited to a big event. I've officially gotten to the point where I need a professional to help me look good.
Note the picture at right: the Kodak bloggers sent me these Top Ten Tips for Looking Great in Photos and I actually remembered a few of them! For once, I'm really happy with the way a picture of me turned out.
