Look: For the Rehearsal

Well, this look was done for the rehearsal “day” for my cousin’s wedding. She’s 22 and the wedding was in Abilene, TX. First I went and got my nails done with my mom – I chose a Nubar color (blue duochrome) which is really pretty and I wore a black dress for the wedding, so anything would match. Then we went to one of their family friends’ house for a wine and cheese gathering. It was one of the strangest houses I’ve ever seen…and there was no wine, and not a lot of cheese. Very strange. Anyway, then we headed to the church for the rehearsal and a mexican restaurant called “Amanda’s” (mexican?) for dinner. It was a fun day overall. I wanted to do a look that was indicative of me while not doing anything that people would be shocked with. I dunno if I was able to pull off both (since you never really know what people will say about you), but I really liked it. It came out exactly how I wanted it to, so that always makes me happy!

Look: Entremauve Purple

This is a super duper easy look today. It’s kinda bright, and definitely very contrasting with the colors, but when blended well, it looked nice.

Look: Another Laura Geller Favorite

The only thing that sucks for me when it comes to mineral eyeshadow (MES) is just that…the mess they make! There’s a lot of fall out, but as long as you can maneuver around that, it’s worth it. Yeah, so I used the same shadow for the inside and the middle – since it’s marble swirled together, there are lighter spots and darker spots. I used the lighter baby/silver blue for the inner lid, and the darker navy for the middle.

Look: I <3 Laura Geller

There was no reason for me to actually do any makeup on this day, since we were just making the long drive home from Vegas, but I felt like it :-) We went to Sephora next to the Venetian because my friend Rachel had a gift certificate, and she wanted some help picking out shadows (duh, my specialty)! She ended up getting the Laura Mercier Sahara Sun Eye Mosaic (great choice…and surprisingly one I don’t have…yet).

ANYway, since I bowled so badly (which bummed me out), my fantastic husband told me he’d buy me some makeup from Sephora! OMG – this happens like once a year when he volunteers to buy me makeup! Soooooo sweet (and it totally turned my mood around…can you say bonus points?)! So I bought 3 new Laura Geller baked mineral shadows and two more of her mineral baked blushes. If you’ve never tried anything by Laura Geller, you seriously need to. Have you noticed lately that I’ve been using her Pink Grapefruit blush like all the time?! That’s because I’m completely in love with it…it seriously might be my new HG, and I never would have seen that coming! It gives me the perfect color, perfect sheen, not to mention great application and staying power. I highly recommend it, but beware if you have allergies because the first ingredients are talc and mineral oils. But for me, it’s the cat’s meow ;-)

Look: Gorgeous Golden Sun

I just couldn’t resist using my Dior Bronze Couture Palette again because it’s pure LOVE! Seriously so beautiful! Oh, and I’m looooooving the lip combo of the two Clé de Peau products. It’s funny because I was walking around that day thinking…I have over $100 product value on my lips alone…wow I’m feelin’ high class :-) lol!

Look: Yellow to Green

Greens are my favorite color to wear…in case you were wondering hehe. I based this look off of a loose Fyrinnae pigment I have called Boytoy (dark green). I ordered some samples from them a long time ago because they’re so cheap – samples at like $3.75 each is a steal! So after I put on the primer and base, I actually started this look with this color, then worked around it to build the fade. As you can see, it’s highly pigmented…really nice color!
