When I was a missionary in Taiwan (wow, ten years goes by so quickly!) I remember there were these girls who worked at the malls and department stores at the makeup counters. The thing is, they had so much makeup on, you could never recognize them in the real world. Sporting super powdered faces, garish lipsticks and eye shadows they would wrangle all the women walking by into letting them apply a quick makeover. You could always tell which entrance the women customers came in.

So, the thing is, color can be fun! N. is one of my favorite clients. She and her daughter return each year to kick off the holidays with family pictures. N. confided that she has been told that colors would look great on her, but her work environment makes colors go to grey very quickly, so she has not indulged very often. Well, when you're making pictures is the perfect time to let loose and try something out of the ordinary. This splash of color and texture is just right to show off N.'s youthful complexion.
