Leah Meets Missicat's Eighties Challenge



Circa 1982.

Bit of background: I had a friend who sold Mary Kay Cosmetics. Would I mind posing for her so she could show potential clients the potential in her product?
Another friend took the pictures with my Nikon.
I'm very pleased with them.

I remember those pictures! I think you gave me one.
I treasure it because it's the only time I can recall seeing you wearing makeup!
And you looked mahvelous, dahling!

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Mizfit. I wish I looked like that today, too. Except I really don't care for makeup.

dfBag Lady, thanks. I was never very comfortable in makeup although I did wear if for a time. I'm glad I posed for my friend.

You look so pretty!

Missicat said...

No it doesn't count! You look great!! hehehe
I remember Mary Kay in the 80s - wasn't this the make up you had to mix with water before you put it on? Or am I old and confused?

Leah J. Utas said...

Tricia, thanks so much.
Missicat, the alternates were a bit, umm, well, y'know the Intrawebz is forever....
Mary Kay wasn't the one that required mixing. That's waaaaay too much work for me.

Nice pictures! I remember those hair days! :)

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Mark. Ah, hair. Mine used to look quite red from time to time depending on clothing and background.

Reb said...

Oh, I love those photos Leah! You look like a starlette.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Reb. I took the posing quite seriously.

tokaiangel said...

I agree with Reb, you look beautiful, like a starlet! Like a classic 1940s femme fatale. I see no 80s here! Must try harder :0)

TA - What a wonderful way to put it. Thank you so much.

Fortune Cookies said...

wow! look at you, you 1980's hottie! I've never been so fortunate.

Polly Kahl said...

Wow Leah, what a fresh, pretty woman. And I agree with the above, you are timeless. As Billy Crystal would've said in the '80s, "You Look Mahveluzz."

Leah J. Utas said...

FC, I've never been called a hottie. Thanks.

Polly, what wonderful compliments. Thanks so much.

Thomma Lyn said...

Wowie, I agree with Reb -- you look like a starlet! :)

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, TL. It was quite a bit of fun.

Crabby McSlacker said...

Wow.

ALMOST enough to rethink my "no makeup for me, ever" stance. You look so glamorous!

But then a lot of that is bone structure--even back in the 80's, coated with makeup, I wouldn't have looked so pretty. Thanks for sharing those!

Thanks so much, Crabby. I enjoyed posing for my friend.
