Day Three: After
Color me shocked! The makeup that I was most scared about actually ended up being my favorite "after" look. While there was plenty of purple mess on my towel, it didn't spread to my face . . . and the resulting lilac stain on my lips complemented my flushed skin extremely well.
The rest of my makeup held up impressively also. When an one of our editorial intern saw this "after" image, he remarked: "Do you even have pores?" Hearing this compliment ensured that the concealer and foundation powder will have a permanent home in my stash.
I definitely would have headed back to the office like this. Hell, I would have scheduled a meeting just so that I could show up and say, "Oh, me? I just got back from SoulCycle. It was suuuuch a rough ride."
