Two o'clock Thursday afternoon.
I was bored and so ready to go home.
I took a walk outside to see the weather, and when I swung back into the office, a flock of girls in the school's skin care program met me with a "Jill! You'll do it won't you???"
"It" being a volunteer for a beauty make over.
They were right, I would.
I didn't even bother to think about why they thought of me when they thought of "make over". Around where I work, it is not a cause for dismay if someone in the hall way to flags you down to undergo a wax or facial peel.
(In fact, I had just gotten flagged for a peel on Tuesday evening, and I was indeed peeling nicely while the make-up artist-to-be was working on me.)
Apparently each student was assigned a movie star's picture, and were to apply make up to a classmate to mimic the star's look.
No...it wasn't so much that I brought to mind Scarlett...there was just an odd number of students and by co-incidence the left over student had drawn SJ's look to duplicate.
That's what's so fun about a make-over. You get to see how something different would work on you.
I am all about not re-applying sunscreen three to four times a day...I apply a hat instead.
by playing with the "after" pictures a bit. Adding sepia to one image was an interesting make-over too.
thing about digital camera: you can take as many shots as you want, and even try out new expressions.
I call this the: "Don't mess with a middle aged librarian in a hat if you know what is good for you" look.
Photo editing up the whazoo!

Blemish fix in Picasa really is this girl's best friend!
