a Bachelorette party

Liz and I had a joint her birthday/ my bachelorette party the Saturday before we flew out to Vegas.  Check out this awesome sign she made out of glitter.  i love it!

all the girls getting together for a group shot before hitting the town.

a makeup makeover

so my sister irene has been going on and on and on about how i need to get a makeover at Sephora.  they basically sit you down and you tell them what you are looking for (i.e. a natural, dewy look, etc) and they will find some new products for you.  it doesn't cost anything but you need to spend $50, which hello i spend that anyways!

we met Jasmine who is a MAKEUP FOREVER lead makeup artist at the Sephora in Las Vegas and i let her know that i wanted a heavier makeup look with a retro feel for my wedding day makeup.  here i am pre-lips on the trial day.

i loved the makeup and the tricks that i learned (applying foundation with a brush gives it a heavier look) from my session.

here we are post makeup session (the second time around).  irene was going for a mod-60s twiggy inspired look with big eyes, big lashes, pale face and nude lips.  i wanted a darker, dramatic look for my wedding look.  here are the products i ended up getting from my makeover:
