For Better or For Worse?

Envy and Retrospeck Eye Makeup

During my time off between Christmas and New Years I made my way to Sephora for my free wedding consult (I had a coupon to waive the $50 purchase).  So with a girlfriend in tow we headed downtown to see what look they would come up with.  To sum things up, I absolutely loved what Emily from Sephora did with my skin but I wasn’t sold 100% on the eyes.  I don’t own foundation and usually don’t wear anything on my face, and if I do it is a tinted moisturizer and a light powder.  So I didn’t want anything cakey, but I was looking for nice even coverage that would photograph well and last all day.

Plum Fun

MAC Smokey Eye with Shale/Blackberry

Our friends were celebrating their engagement Saturday night (Big Congratulations!!) with their family and friends…no better time to get dressed up and play with some makeup!  I like this one a lot, it’s no wedding look, but it’s a lot of fun for the everyday and sooo easy.  A smokey plum eye goes great with every skin tone and hair color and looks beautiful whether young or mature. I actually did this exact look about a month ago on my fiance’s mother (minus the lashes).  It opened up her eyes in a big way and more importantly made her feel great.  I’m glad you loved it Cindy! Everyone else, let me know what you think!

I Do?

Brown MAC Smokey Eye

With the wedding less than three months away, the questions surrounding hair and makeup are creeping in closer.  One thing at a time though – makeup first.  I have stayed away from the insanely bright colors and have been experimenting with warmer options that are classic that won’t leave me wondering “What was I thinking!?!?!”

I have a couple looks to start with, and I’m not sure I’ve found “it” yet.  But let me know what you think and if you like one better than the other!
