As I've mentioned before, black and white is easily my go-to color palette. What is quite different from the norm, however, is this fantastic red lipstick! I have always been a little shy when it comes to makeup. I don't know any of the tricks or proper application for even the most basic of basics (I was a very lucky adolescent and evaded the all-too-common plague of acne) and generally in the morning I swipe on some eyeliner and I'm done. Thus, this departure with some red lipstick is exciting! I was definitely antagonizing Sarah the whole time we were shooting asking, "do I have lipstick on my teeth? Oh no! My sweater touched my lips! Is it smeared?!" But like a good friend and patient photographer, she was never without a few comforting words and the occasional supply of a mirror for reapplication. That's what friends are for, right?
