It takes courage to say, "sure, okay," when someone surprises you with omigodIloveyourlipstickIhavetotakeaphoto! Without-warning sidewalk photoshoots are an hourly thing with fashion-types in this age of street-style worship. But when someone's keen to take a snap of your face, and you didn't know it was going to happen while you were getting ready for work that morning, and whoa, the nut with the camera is standing waaay too close... beautygeeks props to you, lady!
This is Terri Sparkes. A hairstylist at Blo Blow Dry Bar, and a freelance colourist with a thriving housecalls business in downtown Toronto, she was brave enough to say yes when I geeked out about her gorgeous lipstick and waved my camera around. (Terri and I actually met years ago when she was a colourist at Langton Salon on King St. East, so maybe that was a factor in her allowing me to snap this pic.)
Terri's cheerful lipstick is, sadly, a shade that doesn't seem to be available in Canada. If you love orange or coral and happen to be tooling around south of the border, though, you should easily be able to snag L'Oreal Paris Infallible Le Rouge lipstick in 479 Coral Seduction.
Would you mind picking up an extra one for me, please?
