Hey everyone! I must apologize once again for a weekend without new videos- I traveled back to the area where I went to college for a wedding. Congratulations Jessie & Shane! They're both friends of ours and Tyler was an usher in the wedding. We had a fantastic time, but once we got home we both just felt drained of energy. Even though it's summer- it's still a very busy time! If I'm traveling on the weekends it kind of prevents me from being able to do tutorials- because weekends are usually when I shoot them because that's when I have the time. There will eventually be more tutorials in the future, and I'll of course have other types of videos up this week- including my 20,000 subscriber celebration video! :D Plus reviews, favorites, etc.
Now to make this somewhat beauty-related-- Here's the look I did for the wedding. The "accent color" on my dress was a little pink belt, so I used that as the accent on my eye look as well. I used my Cover Girl eyeshadow quad in Drama Eyes (It's a product I mentioned in my Summer Drugstore Faves blog entry). I used the white shade all over my lid, then used the burgundy for a wash of warmth in my crease. I defined the outer V with the black shade, and gave a light dusting of the white shade under my brow for a highlight. Then comes the really fun part- I used my Glam Couture shadow in Palace (a sparkly magenta- I used it as part of my Intense Teal shadow tutorial- I show the shade right at the beginning). With a fluffy crease brush, I used a very light dusting of the shade near my brow bone, overlapping the other colors a bit. It gave a pretty wash of color and sort of a unique touch to the look.
On my lips I used my Jordana Easyliner Lip Liner in Baby Berry and topped it off with my NYX Goddess of the Night lip gloss in French Kiss. For blush- I used the ELF Studio Blush/Bronzer compact- mainly the bronzer side as a cheek contour, and then Cover Girl Cheekers blush in Plumberry Glow to keep with the pink theme. Oh and as far as my hair goes, I sort of pulled out some side bangs, and then teased and bobbi pinned a little "pouf" right behind that. then I made sort of a messy bun in the back and secured it with a clip.
Now for a few fun pics! Here's me and my pal Brittany at the reception. Isn't her hair adorable? And such cute earrings too. So stylish! :)
There's the newlyweds Jessie & Shane! This is at some point between the wedding & the reception when we stopped by a pub in Shane's hometown. That's Ty peeking his head into the picture haha :D This place actually served hot chashew nuts- like they were being heated by a lamp and they were the most amazing things ever!!
This is a random pic I took at the reception-- It's amazing what happens when you reach your arm out and yell "picture!!" on the dance floor! This one just cracks me up. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have a great week ahead! :D
