This was so fun!!!!!!!
Sephora is one of my favorite places to ‘hang out’ and coincidentally it was where I reconnected with Greg (my husband to be) a few years ago. I had my first Sephora makeover and was purchasing a few items, he was behind me in the line purchasing lipstick for his daughter Grace. I was a bit embarrassed about my striking look (aka raccoon eyes) but it didn’t stop us from chatting in the middle of the mall for what seemed like hours. Little did I know the next time I scheduled a make up session would be in planning for our wedding :):):)
For my bridal makeup, I want a soft look with blush tones. I brought a photo of what I had in mind and Kacie(MUA) was very accommodating and listened to my ideas.
I was very happy with the results..I might tone down the eyes just a bit.
So full of surprises!
One of the perks of having a small wedding is that you can include special details on a much smaller scale. For the invites we wanted to create a vintage-y, romantic look that would also be a keepsake for our parents. The idea of printing on cloth really appealed to me. Greg wears pink very well, I think it’s cute that he calls it ‘faded red.’ So I came up with the font layout on top of a ‘faded red’ hankie design, printed it on cotton, folded it handkerchief style, enclosed in a cardboard sleeve, and placed a kraft-colored heart seal on the back. It was meant to be a quick sample idea of what I had in my head, but we both liked how it turned out, we didn’t change a thing. So here they are:
What is the deal with false eyelashes….? Why are they so uncooperative !!!😫
Last night I tried to apply and failed twice.This morning I was determined to get these spidery saucers on my lids and was finally successful👌. The trick is to apply ample adhesive on the corners of the false eyelashes and holding them down until the glue dries.
Make up Forever was the brand I used(I was kinda excited about that)….. They have many styles to choose from at Sephora, I went with one of the more natural looks.
I’m not sure about wearing these at my wedding.. It does feel kinda odd, I might practice a few times to see if I can eventually forget that I’m wearing them and go from there.
They do add something extra, not sure if I’m sold just yet.
