Fight the Frump Friday

This is my first foray into Fussy's Fight the Frump Friday. Though I've lurked for awhile. Find more at Fussypants.

Today is all about a key make-up trick.

Match your lipstick to your nail polish.

I can't stress enough how important that is. It gives you an "I care how I look" appearance. And all us SAHM's know how important it is to appear put together before we walk out the door.

You know how much you like it when the other, not-so-put-together moms envy your style and grace when you walk up to the park. It makes you feel so good.

So here I am the other day, before I put my face on (as we say in TX - where I grew up).

I even allowed a close up, for posterity.

Scary isn't it. I can't believe my son even came that close. He's a brave one, that kid.

Lucky for him, I took the time, just that extra few seconds, to show that I'm not frumpy. I love the results...*

See how the colors really tie together and give that put-together look? It's amazing what it can do for your self esteem. The right cosmetics can even camouflage that facial hair while you wait for your waxing appointment. See? You hardly even notice my gnarly beard.
