Rome 2009
June 8, 2009 Penny Sadler

Rome is a visual feast. It’s ancient and it’s modern. And can anyone ever say enough about the famous Roman light? The city positively glows. It’s almost impossible to take a bad photo there.

Life is lived in the streets and piazzas and you never know what will happen. What great people watching! I love the faces of the Italian people. The skin! Those eyebrows! sharp, angular and strong. Anyone who knows me as a makeup artist knows weak brows are one of my pet peeves. The brows define the face. Whenever a makeup look changes significantly you will see the brows change. Think Greta Garbo, Betty Davis, Audrey Hepburn, Twiggy, Brooke Shields. What would they look like with different eyebrows? Can you imagine it?

What did I see in the streets…purple everywhere…loved the purple suede platforms. Did I say platforms? In every possible heel height and color. Beautiful Italian fabric in prints and florals, tunics, leggings(still?) dresses over everything, oversize belts, lots of bling, makes Dallas look plain; fishnet stockings, boots, ankle boots, motorcycle boots, gladiator sandals. And black – even in the heat the Italian girls look cool, hip and elegant in black. How do they do it?
