Wow! I have to say that I think my initial reaction would probably had been a strong urge to strangle her.
It’s pretty awesome that the girl in the shop just shifted conversation to you and helping you get what you needed without missing a beat or even batting an eye. That part would have relaxed me and probably would have quelled the urge to strangle my wife. All in all that sounds like it must have been a pretty nice experience.
I have only tried makeup maybe a handful of times but want to try again. What I would really like is for my fiancé to teach me how to do my makeup as she is awesome with her own makeup. She always looks stunning when she gets done with her makeup. Unfortunately me in makeup is a big problem for her so I’ll probably never get to have that experience.
Glad your makeup trip was an unexpected pleasant surprise!
