What's Right with This Picture?
O, The Oprah Magazine | From the May 2005 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine
Deborah Gear, 52
What she sees: "I'm all washed-out and wrinkly."
What Bobbi sees: "Deborah has the most amazing stature; she holds her body beautifully. She has a long, graceful neck, and an open face with wide, engaging eyes. I don't see the crepiness that bothers her at all; in fact, the texture of her skin is remarkably velvety and smooth. It's the perfect kind of skin for applying makeup. I think what's making Deborah feel washed-out is her fair lashes and brows, so black mascara is huge for her, and I'll use a lot of it. (She would really benefit from having her lashes tinted; it might make her feel more awake even before she puts on mascara.) A little shadow on her brows will define and darken them; I'll add a navy liner to give her eyes some depth. The first thing I noticed about Deborah is that she exudes confidence and friendliness and a kind of vitality. Deborah, you say you're how old?"
