Hello beauty lovers!

I wanted to catch you all up on some of the makeup I’ve done lately. The first one was for a mother of two and nurse, Melissa A. She and her husband were celebrating their 28th birthdays with a joint “white” party in Silverlake, and she wanted a sexy smoky eye with a bright lip. After reviewing some choice photos on Pinterest, we decided on this combo:

Happy Wedding Wednesday everyone! My friend and fellow beauty blogger, Christina of Beauty Queen Blog gave me the brilliant idea of bringing you all a wedding-related post every Wednesday. This very first WW post is my own wedding makeup that I recreated for the video. SPOILER ALERT: Dylan totally makes an appearance in this vid. Since our wedding day (July 28th of this year), everyone has been asking me how I did my own makeup for my wedding. Why didn’t I hire someone else or have one of my many makeup artist friends do it? Was it stressful?

The fact is, the process of putting on makeup is therapeutic for me. I truly enjoy sitting there crouched on a stool chiseling my face into perfection! The morning of the wedding was so relaxing for me– I just sat there in my robe and played with makeup until it was time to meet Dylan at the church. I am the WORST model. If I had anyone else doing my makeup they would have thrown their brushes at my head because all I do is peek open one eye the whole time and ask them if I could see how it looks.

I have to admit though, I felt a lot of pressure for my makeup to look amaze-balls that day. I gave myself two trial runs just to be sure. I just didn’t want to let anyone down! I was really happy with the end result. The makeup was bold and bridal at the same time- it truly was ME.



This video is also cool because I show you guys how to use an airbrush gun in it! If you guys want a detailed tutorial on airbrush makeup, please let me know in the comments below and I’ll make it happen.
