It was such a pleasure doing Stephanie's makeup for her big day. I met Stephanie at my friend Corinne's bachelorette party (she's her aunt). Stephanie and her sisters were a blast to hang out with at the party and we had a lot of fun together. After I did Corinne's makeup for her wedding, Stephanie reached out and asked if I would do her makeup for her wedding as well. I was honored! I had a lovely time in the morning hanging out with her, her daughters (who I also adore), her niece Jessica, and her cute dogs. I was so happy to do Jessica's makeup again! She is such a total sweetheart and really cool to talk to and spend time with. Congratulations Stephanie! I hope you're enjoying your honeymoon (super jealous bc she's on a beach right now!) ☀️🌊
Happy New Year Ladies and Gents! It's been a while since I added any posts. I took the blog section away for a bit but I'm bringing it back! In the New Year I would like to take time to blog more, amongst other things. What's everyone's resolutions this year?
What did you do for New Year's Eve this year? I was at a family party and we played a dice game called Bunco. It was pretty cool. Yours truly won one of the prizes and earned $25 - watch out now! ;)
For my New Year's makeup look I wanted to center it around the most fabulous lipstick I received for Christmas. Christian Louboutin's Rouge Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour. Look how gorgeous this thing is. The packaging is amazing. The color I got was the classic red bottom color Rouge Louboutin. So gorgeous and classic.
Now, because it's Christian Louboutin I held it to high expectations. I will say though although it's not advertised to be a lipstick with staying power, it lasted on me all night. I only retouched once and I didn't really even need to. With me, that's important in a lipstick. The other important aspect is smudging. I absolutely HATE when I buy a lipstick and it smears all over my face. What's the point? This lipstick did not smudge and I was very happy about it. The only thing that I think would hold someone back from purchasing this lipstick is the price. It costs $90, yeah I know. That's a lot of money for a lipstick. But it's Christian Louboutin and that comes with the territory. If you're a lipstick enthusiast, you love Christian Louboutin, and you can afford your bills this month, then I say go for it! It's definitely a good luxury lipstick. It's a definite MAKEUP for me.
Did you do your makeup all fun for New Year's? I would love to see pics or hear deets in the comments section below! Happy New Year, everyone!
Bride-to-be Paula 👰🏽 came with one of her bridesmaids/ one of her best friends from childhood, Cassie, to my apartment for Paula's makeup trial this past weekend. They were literally the funniest and sweetest girls ever. I had the best time doing Paula's makeup as she and Cassie cracked jokes. The 3 of us had so much in common and laughed and talked throughout the entire trial.
Christina did Paula's hair at her home salon and it was exactly as Paula described to me that she wanted. She looked so beautiful! Christina had such a wonderful time with them as well. After our appointments with Paula and Cassie we were texting and gushing how amazing they both were!
I loved how easy going Paula was with her hair and makeup looks. Sometimes when we get our makeup done we can focus on the smallest things, but not Paula. She looked in the mirror and saw immediately how beautiful she looked. Ladies we have to remember how beautiful we are. Look in the mirror today and give yourself a compliment. Don't focus on that pimple, the sunburned nose, or the bags under your eyes. Practice self love today!
Christina and I are so excited to join Paula, her family, and friends on her big day on October 15th this year! Congratulations Paula and we can't wait to see you in the fall! 🍁🍂
