I decided to wear my semi-new YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick #29 in Opera Rose, because it is called OPERA ROSE. The color is described as a "vibrant rose pink" on the Sephora website. It's totally opaque with one swipe, and seems to stain the lips very slightly. I kept my eyes muted and let my lips really be the focus of my makeup. I let my hair air dry (except for the bangs) and kind of do it's own thing.

I wore a blue dress that has a knot across the middle, and glittery gold heels.
My husband tied his necktie into a trinity knot.

Just to prove we actually attend the operas with my parents, here is a rare photo of them!
|My dad is 6'4" and my mom is 5'2"!|
I feel so fortunate I get to go to the opera so regularly with my family. It's always so fun and such a treat!
There are four operas every season (two in the fall, and two in the spring), so this was the last of the season. Next season will include Elektra, Madam Butterfly, The Merry Widow, and Faust. I'm already looking forward to them!
|They shine a "Detroit Opera House" light onto the side of the opera house that faces the parking garage.|
I don't know why the lipstick looks so purple in the full face photos. And it looks too dark in the arm swatch pic, too. Grrr.
Thank you for visiting today!
