ALL About the Lips...

At left, the stressed-out face of a Drag Queen getting ready at the last minute and trying to be her own paparazzi! To view even bigger glitter-lips, click on the image to enlarge. :-O!

So New Year's Eve was slightly exhausting yet fun. The sad reality is that my drag is pretty darned uncomfortable. Yes, it looks fucking fabulous, but I sweat profusely in it and if I try to eat anything, I end up eating mostly glitter.

My friend Andy's party that I went to was fairly mellow: it was one of those caring and sharing type of parties, so Madame G. felt slightly out of her element. Last year I went to the same gathering as "Albert" and felt like I fit in much better with the general vibe there. But this year other guests enjoyed the Madame's presence, and since I LIVE to give pleasure to others, I guess it's cool.

I am grateful to have friends to celebrate the Holidaze with. In the past, the Madame has spent a holiday or two alone,with a big bag of chips and some salami and cheese on Ritz crackers... too sad.

Oh, btw, the Mango Bars were a huge hit! Woohooooo!

I'm glad it was a good celebration for you.
Happy New year!

How does Mdm G get the lips to look so plump? It must be the same secret known only to Julia Roberts! I can never put on lip liner and be comfortable. I feel self conscience like it is never done right. Does Mdm G have any make up tips? Inquiring minds want to know. Really.

Madame Glinka's makeup tip for the New Year:

ALWAYS apply your lip liner at least 1/2 inch outside your natural lip-area, for a fuller, poutier lip and a more kissable you! xxxooo

Regarding the glitter problem...I seem to recall that there is some kind of lip sealant you can use to make the glitter stay put. You know...that whole "color stays put until you take it off" thing? I'll have to take a peek around. Been a while since I tinkered with cosmetics. It used to freak out the kid too much.

So what's a little discomfort when you've got glitter lips like that?
Glad you spent New Years Eve with your friends.

Happy New Year, adorable you!

Note to self...remember at least 1/2" outside the natural lip line...(hee)

Sounds like you had a wonderful time - and what's a little pain when you look absolutely marvelous?

I'm so glad you had a Happy New Year's Eve! Any New Year's spent in the company of friends and/or loved ones is a good one indeed.

BTW ~ I accidentally took Madame's beauty advice last night ~ "ALWAYS apply your lip liner at least 1/2 inch outside your natural lip-area..." The martinis were flowing, the lighting was bad, and I looked like Meg Ryan at the Oscars, right after the injections... :)
