It was very bright out, and the sun was shining directly at me. Just about anyone will advise you that high noon is the worst time to take portraits, whether of yourself or others, and they're totally right. But I'm super excited about these photos because I used settings on my camera!!! Normally I shoot on auto and do 100% of the adjustments with computer software, so this was a thrilling departure from the norm. For me, that is. I know you're probably underwhelmed, and you'll be even more so when you learn that all I actually did was change the ISO from 200 to 100. I mean, um, SOMETHING VERY IMPRESSIVE. JAZZ HANDS.
Sorry for the fake out re: jazz hands. Today my cardigan was the exact same color as my lunch. I ought to get some sort of prize.
The Painted Rogue's recent wishlist must have made me green with envy. (Get it? Gosh, I'm hilarious, even though that doesn't totally makes sense.) Just sayin': I have Benetint, albeit as half of this weird duo thingy, and in my experience it is a useless product. When I wear it on my lips, nothing happens. And it barely shows up on my cheeks (not pictured). But then Syl comes along and uses Benetint as fake blood, and I'm like, "Why is it having efficacy?! Is this even the same product???" Mysterious. I do want to like it, not least because of the gorgeous photo on Benefit's website:
Anyway. How're you doing?
