Help Me Get Ready for New Years!

Hi Bellas,

It's almost 2011, are you excited?  I'm so ready to take on a whole new year with new opportunities for growth and improvement.  But first of all, there's one little event we need to get through first...New Years Party!  I wanted to share with you all some of the hair, makeup, and clothing choices I'm debating on for tomorrow.  Let me know what you all think!

Bridesmaid Makeup - Simple Silver with Polished Skin

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another bridal post.  This time around, I had a client that came to wanting to get her makeup done for her friend's wedding.  She was a bridesmaid and wanted to make sure she looked great too.  Interestingly enough, she didn't go with the artist the bride hired.  Instead, she picked me because she had seen my work online and liked it.  I've also done a lot of Asian Bride (she's half Asian, half Caucasian) and she wanted someone who could match her skin.

Christmas Makeup Look

Hi Bellas,

For those of you that celebrate Christmas, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday this weekend.  I went home to visit my parents in Orlando, and it was nice to have a few days of relaxation and family time.  This year, I tried to film a Christmas look, but for some reason it didn't save.  At least I got pictures!

FOTN - Intense Purple Look

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another look!  I wore it for an entire day...literally.  From a 7:30am early wedding, up to about 9:30pm at night after doing a photoshoot meet and greet.  The look lasted pretty much all day with just minimal touch-up.
