Portrait of a lady...well, me

A photographer had been hired not only to take pictures of last week's party in full swing, but also to take everyone's portrait as they walked in. They say the camera never lies so this one is telling me never to put so much makeup on again:

Yes, but don't you think I look slightly orange as well?

I didn't think so... but I'm also not familiar with your every day look. :)

Let's just say it's a lot less colourful than this. It's not that I think I look hideous covered in all that makeup, it's just that I'm not used to seeing myself like that.

You should have some idea of my everyday look -- we traipsed around Liverpool together that one day some years back, remember?

Wow, so it's taken me FOREVER to reply to this, but I do remember! ;)

Ah, that'll be the stole. I've had it in my wardrobe for ages, now I've finally had an occasion for wearing it!

Thanks.

I don't see makeup - you look good.

Thank you. But you know how it is, no one ever likes their pictures...

What, like D-d in your icon? Her picture reminds me of one of those pinups of moviestars of the 30s and 40s my mum used to keep -- very stylish!

Nice fur — looks like seal!
And you look lovely. Make-up can look different under different light. Sometimes what looks too much in one light will be fine in another.

looks like seal!

Does it really? It's a fake, though.

I do wear fur, but only if it's a by-product of the meat industry. I don't agree with the idea of breeding and keeping animals for their fur; but I tend to see it differently when their meat is eaten, their bones made into glue, their skin turned into leather and their fur turned into hats and coats.

Nice picture! Your hair looks so vibrant!

Thank you; that's probably because of the way the lighting was set up -- at least, I don't think it's that vibrant in normal daylight conditions.

Wow, G, very glam! You look very good in the pic!

Glamorous is the perfect word...

Well, it seems to be the consensus, anyway...

I think you look great, but you are right about no one ever liking their pictures. I find that I tend to like a picture better when I go back and look at it a few years later. Also, any time you do something that is different from your normal (make up) you won't look the way you picture yourself.

Very true. It's not every day I'm dressed and made up to the nines, and seeing the end result recorded for posterity...it just startled me, is all.

The flash appears to be quite low down. However, I do second all the comments on how glamorous you look!

Ah! That must be what's bugging me! Thanks.
