The Umpa-Lumpa Look

January 27, 2012

I love me some Bobbi Brown cosmetics and this week after too many months of rocking the Umpa-Lumpa/Jersery Shore glow of the visage, I decided it was time to go out and get my winter shade foundation. My summer shade worked perfectly fine, in the summer, when my skin was sun kissed and bursting with freckles, but it wasn’t working so well now that I’m showcasing my non-sun kissed, but still freckly, paler winter coat. In fact it was “Bad Make-Up 101″ and I knew it but had somehow convinced myself that with some ferocious blending and the magic dusting of a little bronzer around the neck area, all would be fine and I could continue fooling myself into thinking I wasn’t that pale freckle faced girl from Ireland, but an olive skinned mediterranean goddess instead. But hey, if pale and freckly is what I am, then its about time I owned it, cos lord knows nobody can or every should aspire to own the Umpa-Lumpa look.

While I was at the make-up counter I might have gotten a little carried away and also invested in a new lipstick and primer. Ooopsie! But trust me, it could have been a lot worse, this was me operating under restraint.

    I was thinking of you while I was there. We would have been a terrible influence on each other. The Husbands would have banned us from shopping together FOREVER.
