Life: It Wasn't Me

I love murder mysteries. My husband hates them. C'est la vie. More narrowed down, I love those shows on television that are the more investigative type that shows from beginning to end that tells both sides of the story. Sometimes, they tell you upfront who did it and work their way back. Other times, they keep you guessing until the end. I like the soothing voice of the narrator. He or she doesn't express drama, they just read the script as it progresses through the show.

I, normally, will have on one of those shows when cleaning house or blogging. If you miss a minute of it, you can still keep up with what is going on when you start watching it again and most shows end in an hour. I do read books and like the fairy or vampire suspense killing who done it type. I don't really like it when I figure it out too early on, but I do try to figure it out as I read it. Same with the television shows, I try to figure them out and why they would do it before the end of the hour.

I turned on the show today and thankfully it's one I haven't seen before. The actresses and actors are particularly good in this one. The show seems to have picked out great look-a-likes and showing new attorneys. The history is unfortunate of this family and things took a turn for the worse. It's a tragedy for all no matter how you slice it. It's not the normal high on drugs or wanting more money than they have type of situation. I didn't figure it out before they let the audience know the direction it was going.

I am particularly drawn to the defense attorney. I am a redhead and the attorney is, as well. Matter of fact, all the ladies seem to have red hair. This is strange, but coincidental for the show as it is based on people's lives. This defense attorney though, not only has very pretty red hair, her makeup is gorgeous. I love makeup, as I previously mentioned in another blog. Many of the people in the shows that tell their part of the story in special inserted clips have plain makeup on or the infamous dark deep black eyeliner. The fact that this attorney either paid for her looks that day or she learned the art herself, really has me captivated.

I stopped my writing each time she came on the screen to watch her. To really look at her techniques and coloring. I then started making mental notes about monotone color scheme using sienna, corals, and clay colors. I couldn't tell you what she was saying, blah blah blah is about all I remember. However, her look, that I remember. This appears to be universal redhead colors, as when I wear the colors I believe it flatters my skin tone and hair, much the same as it flatters hers. I believe this would be the redheads' version of a nude, but seen, face as tans and browns would be for darker hair. I do use this color palette every now and then and hope it looks as good on me as it does on her.
