What I Learned from Hours of YouTube Beauty Tutorials

When I don’t shoot, I retouch what I’ve shot. It takes hours. This photo that you see in the header of this post – took an hour and 15 mins. As you can imagine, it’s a lot of staring at the computer. Even more so now, that I can’t do my job as a fashion photographer sitting at home. But because I’m blessed with such an activity that doesn’t require rigorous thinking, I like to have some noise in the background, rather than listening to my own thoughts. Not today, anxiety.

The Drama of Jewelry

Most of the time I think a chunky gold necklace is more dramatic than a full ballgown. Why? Because you only wear a ball gown to a dramatic event. It is assumed one is going to be a bit dramatic when the dress code calls for a ballgown. But a chunky gold necklace to the market on a Sunday? Or a second date on a Thursday? That’s some fun, unexpected drama. I’ve noticed my wardrobe has streamlined as I’ve gotten older, but my jewelry box has EXPLODED as I gravitate more and more to the unexpected…

Bye Bye Heels

An Ode to Lipstick

I took a shower yesterday and congratulated myself about it. Felt really smug that I accomplished one of life’s everyday necessities. I decided, hey, while I’m feeling so great and smug, why don’t I hit it out of the ball park and DO MY HAIR AND MAKE-UP?! While I’d been taking showers from time to time during this era of quarantine, I had NOT been doing my hair or make up. Even for the occasional Zoom call, it just didn’t seem worth it. And yes, there was something refreshing about my new laissez-faire attitude. I think this was the longest stretch of time my skin has been allowed to breathe without a drop of make up on it. BUT, if I was being honest… I missed a little polish, I guess you could call it.
