Yesterday, Michael Reinhardt did my makeup. I had gone to the show without blusher (horrors!), and I asked him to give me some color. He did my whole face, and along the way applied Ondine to my cheeks. He had made my eyes pop with a smoky brown look, and the Ondine gave me color, but not so much that I looked "clownish." Of course, Michael would never do that, but it was the perfect accompaniment.
I swatched all the shades heavily, using a sponge-tipped applicator to apply them. I took my photos in full, morning sun. I didn't realize how bruised I've become until I started examining my arm in full sun. I'm fairly blue and yellow in a lot of places. I apologize for my motley arm; it's likely to be this way for another week or two.
Cheeky Chic will be available at Le Métier de Beauté counters until it sells out. I purchased mine at Neiman Marcus. If you'd like help, give Michael or Chae a call at (202) 966-9700, extension 2258 or 2236. If you have fair skin like I do, this is your cheek palette.
I will show you more of my new treasures as this week progresses. I also hope to show you The Countess soon. The Kaleidoscope Eye Kit Michael designed is extraordinary. I skipped La Strada because I'm waiting for The Countess to arrive.
