Cause I’m all about the hair

Say hello to Bob…




I went with short, wavy, bangs because I was ready for something different.  I’m not sure I love it, but it’s okay for now. 

Now that I have the hair issue out of the way, I’m moving on to makeup.  I am on the search for a shade of lipstick that isn’t too dark, and isn’t too pink.  I am the world’s worst at choosing the right shade.  Any suggestions?  And while I”m at it, tell me what you think:  eyeliner or no eyeliner?  I’m not wearing any in this pic, but in my curly long hair pic I am.  Can you tell the difference?  I’ve been wearing makeup for nearly 25 years now and you would think I would know exactly what works for me and what doesn’t, but honestly, I have no clue.  Guess I need to make a trip to Tulsa and visit a makeup counter, there’s nothing close by here, except for Merle Norman, which may have to be an option. 

Okay, well it’s 5pm and my new hair and I have to make dinner, do laundry, work out, straighten the house and collapse into bed, all in the next 5 hours, so we’d better get to it!   Have a good night everyone.

  1. “Hello, Bob!”

    Look at that cute, sassy hair! (Yep, time to change the name of the blog.) You look maaaaahvelous, daaaaahling!

    Oh, wish I could help you on the makeup quest. I don’t wear it much, so I’m kind of out of practice, although it is fun to talk about. 🙂 I’m pretty clueless about choosing lipstick. I’d like to go darker than the rose-pink I invariably get, but red tends to look kind of weird on me. Re: eyeliner, it’s hard to tell because the lighting in this picture is very different from the long & curly hair picture, but I’d say yes. I have had pretty good luck in the past with the department store makeup counter “makeovers.” (Back when I had disposable income. 😉 Helpful hint: don’t let your kids give you a makeover. I do let mine do this every now & then for fun, and I end up looking like a partially noshed-on extra in a zombie movie every time. (They do love their lipstick, bless ’em.)

  2. Yes Jill, sassy indeed! I really like the pic w/the eyeliner, both with and without glasses. I think your make up looks great.

    Did you and Burts Bees Fig break up? I went out and got it when you said you were obsessed with it. Now every time I use it, I have good thoughts of you :))

    I used to be a make up hound, but I got more and more allergic, and now all I use is mascara (only one kind), blush, and lipstick. Trying to be content the way God made me. Which gets harder and harder as time goes by (and wrinkles magically appear.)

    1. I just recently bought some Burt’s Bees in Rhubarb. It’s a little lighter than the Fig, but I fear it is too pink, which is why I’m on the hunt for a new lipstick. Still love the Fig though! 🙂

  3. Cute new hair-do! And the bob is so versitile too.

    I say head down to Tulsa and indulge at the make-up counter . . . to treat yourself for all your hard work. Though I don’t think you need make-up cuz you look like a teeny bopper.

  4. I don’t see your long hair pic (and don’t remember it) but you look super cute!

    Make up is not something that is static. I wore it very young- took many many years off- and was lost! What looks best varies with your age and style at the age. Advice? I’m a follower by nature. I went to a few clinique counters (their makeup is best with my skin) and looked for a girl close to my age with her make-up done in a way that I thought looked nice. It was hard- cause for me alot of those gals wear… quite a bit more than I want to.

    Anyhow- the makeup girl did my face for me, sold be a (very) few essentials, and I picked up imitations for the others (eyeliner, et) at walmart and target.

    Good luck– The advice is to be supportive, but- you really look so nice in your pic. What you are doing is working! Of course trying something new even once can just be fun.

  5. LOVE the hair!

    When it comes to lipstick, I tend not to wear a lot b/c I’m inherently lazy about re-applying!

    My advice is to go to Tulsa and indulge – try different lipsticks (the inside of your thumb is a good spot b/c it’s as close to your lip colour as possible) and experiment. Try different brands than you’re used to as well b/c you might find something new.

    Good luck!

  6. Very cute! I’m very very very partial to Burt’s Bees in Cocoa. It looks dark but I’m gotten tons of compliments and it isn’t too pink. Other than that I’d say get you to a MAC counter (Nordstrom) or just find a MAC store and ask for a makeover. They will certainly sassify you!

  7. Your hair is adorable! Great summer cut. I hope you enjoy it. What did the hubs think?!

    Our mall just got a Sephora. & I was there today! Holy crap, I spent way too much. I love makeup. I’m all about looking as good as possible & my skin needs lots of help. I wish I had more $$ to spend & I’d have the very best of everything. As it is, I just replaced my 3 year old powder compact, got some “real” eye cream (I’ve been using Cetaphil cream on my eyes–I’m almost 40, I think it’s time I used a real eye cream!), got a new oil-free tinted moisturizer, & an undereye concealer (holy cow, didn’t know how dark the circles were until I tried the sample). I put the lipstick back but now I wished I’d gotten it. Will have to go back–it was On The Sly by Benefit. Truly, though, lipstick is a trial & error thing. You gotta go try it on.

    & I am all about eyeliner & mascara. If I could afford it I’d get my eyelids tattoo’d with permanent makeup, that’s how much I love eyeliner!
