Nutcracker


Last night was pretty magical. My husband, his family and I went to go and see the Nutcracker​. 

Living in the city has been quite an adjustment for me, it’s a very fast paced lifestyle compared to what I was used to as you could imagine. But I couldn’t help to think to myself last night ..driving through the city on the way to the show, how beautiful and how blessed we are to be in the position we are in. How I do hope to be back to my country roads in the near future, I know that God is just preparing us for His plan. He knows that I’ve always been very comfortable and a homebody and I just have to remember that this is His way of pushing me out of my comfort zone. Every time I get anxious, I just remind myself of that fact. It truly is a beautiful city and I was blessed to spend this time with them. 

 It was an absolutely beautiful show, and I had never been in the Benedum center so I was blown away by the beauty of the building. 

  
I was blessed enough to be able to wear a vintage dress that my husband purchased for me over two years ago. Check out Quinn Edgells vintage clothing line- FEATHERED. All of her items are absolutely beautiful and reasonably priced for the quality of what you are getting .  Having lived in West Virginia, there was just nowhere to wear such a beautiful and extravagant dress . 

  
But I would say last night was very fitting. Need to even mention how gorgeous my husband looked ?  I couldn’t quit staring at him all night.

Dress – 1960s vintage ivory sequin dress from feathered . Check them out on etsy! 
Glossy nude heels- forever21 

I really couldn’t justify spending money on getting my hair done with my background experience in cosmetology, so I thought why not wing it and try an updo myself! This hair-do you was very simple and easy, if you’re interested in a tutorial comment below.

Bye Bye Dry Skin!


vichy

Okay so, I know it has been SO long since I’ve posted anything BUT I just had to write a review on this product!

I have been struggling with dry skin all of my life,and in only a matter of TWO days my dry skin has been non-existent ! I used to always have to exfoliate and then moisturize before every foundation application and at night, or I would just be so flaky! Not only has this amazing product kept me looking hydrated and healthy but it has also given my makeup a flawless finish/ “dewy look” if you will. (which I LOVE). A lot of people say the dewy look makes it just look like oily skin, but I beg to differ. If anything it gives girls a beautiful glow while also allowing them to look hydrated and refreshed!

I signed up to start receiving an ipsy bag which I believe is only $10 a month. You fill out a profile and your interests and skin type, and they send you generous samples of different brand products. I have a very nice collection of high end products and HAIR products as well. It is truly a great investment, and I didn’t have to pay a fortune paying for full sized products just to find this great cream! The sample sizes, I believe are very generous. I have made each product sent last for a few months! Definitely give this brand a look! I believe the average sized cream runs between $23-25 depending on which site you purchase it.

I’m telling you ladies, this cream is a miracle! Before, I would use a moisturizer and by the end of my work shift, my skin had already flaked up! With this moisturizer , I truly don’t even think I would have to apply it everyday if I didn’t wash my face at night! It’s wonderful! Hope this helped you all!

Make up of the day


/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/8bb/61176711/files/2014/12/img_3953.jpg

This holiday calls for new makeup! Loved playing around with my new pallets and can’t wait to share what I used to achieve this!

For the concealer I used the temptu palette -amazing for dark circles and blemishes
Foundation – Jane Iredale bb cream #3 I find this to be the absolutely best for coverage , and it always leaves my skin with a glow, not only those things but it is actually good for your skin! Jane Iredale is all mineral makeup , which I love because I don’t feel guilty falling asleep in it .

Cheeks – I used Victoria’s Secret bronzer to contour my cheek bones

For the eyes I used my new NAKED palette which I’m absolutely obsessed with. The colors apply beautifully and always add such a glimmer . I’ve never found anything to be as amazing as these palettes. They are long lasting also even without primer !

I used the NYC liquid liner for my cat eye and Mary Kay long lash mascara .

Hope you all enjoyed the look of the day! Email me for questions or if you are interested In getting your hair or makeup done for an event ! Taylor and I would be more than happy to assist you !

Before and After – bridal makeup practice!


wordpress

Recently, I have had the pleasure of partnering with the lovely Alison Clem. She is the owner of the Riversong spa, and I am officially working with her! We are promoting mineral makeup such as Jane Iredale, and for  limited time, Glo Minerals. We are also promoting an organic skincare line called, Eminence . The first time I tried it , I was instantly hooked. We together, will be doing anything from spa treatments such as – facials and body wraps, to eyelash extensions.

However, the most exciting of all is – BRIDAL makeup! Pictured above is my cousin Genna, and she was kind enough to be the model for my trial run through learning how to airbrush! I will never go back! The finish was flawless . Amazing coverage but lightweight at the same time.. how can you beat that? This is not your typical bridal look but, Genna wanted deep colors for a more ‘ edgy ‘ look. She was in love, and that;s what is most important!
