At a conference in the magical land of Québec, Quebec. (I thought it was Quebec City, but like New York “City”, that’s apparently just to disambiguate.) So far it’s… been not much, really.
Remember when I said how strange it was, but coral seems to suit me, at least sometimes? It still does. Strange, because pinks don’t, oranges don’t (I think?), and it’s not a color I think of as going with my skin tone (glow-in-the-dark pale, but very neutral).
Sinful Colors Energetic Red:
The fact that this is named “Energetic Red” makes me think the people who name the colors are looking at photos. From this photo (and others), it looks red. It’s not. It’s intense red-leaning coral, slightly neon in fluorescent lightning.
And I said I would try some coral lipstick, and I did, and I’ll be damned. It’s okay. If said lipstick ever gets unpacked, I’ll show pix of that too. It looks weird to me, possibly because I mostly wear either lipstick the color of my lips or very dramatic lipstick… but not unflattering, I think? Who knew.
Anyway, now I’m pondering Conference Makeup and beauty/dressing/etc in academic in general, since I’m here for a week, more or less as a professor for the first time. <!> I’ll let you know if anything new suggests itself to me…
