For the second installment of 90s Ladies Week, I draw inspiration from one of my most beloved movies. A modern adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, starring one Alicia Silverstone. Maybe you’ve heard of it. Yes, I’m talking about Clueless – the movie that defined a generation and introduced my sixteen-year-old self to the genius of Azzedine Alaia, the ever adorable Paul Rudd, and a host of notable quotables that remain on the tip of my tongue thirteen years later. Does this convo ring any bells?
Tai: Do you think she’s pretty?
Cher: No, she’s a full-on Monet.
Tai: What’s a Monet?
Cher: It’s like the painting, see? From far away, it’s OK, but up close, it’s a big old mess.
Don’t be a Monet like Cher’s nemesis, Amber (not to be confused with my bestie, Amber – who’s a total Betty). My new favorite foundation, Make Up For Ever’s HD Invisible Cover Foundation ensures that you look flawless – in any light, from far away, up close and even in High Definition. The oil-free, medium-to-full-coverage formula creates a soft-focus effect that softens lines and blurrs imperfections. Available in 25 shades to match all skintones. My color is #173, coincidentally named Amber.
On Friday, while having dinner with Señor Spoiled Pretty, he couldn’t stop commenting on how perfectly luminous my skin looked. I’m paraphrasing, of course – but this was a big deal, as Graham hardly comments on my makeup. Thanks to my hubby’s ringing endorsement, HD Invisible Cover has become my foundation of choice. Hopefully, moving forward, his compliments won’t be so sporadic*.
Make Up Forever is available at Sephora.
