Wedding Bells!

Edit: Add items I used on myself and others...

Howdy all!

The wedding was a lot of fun. I can't even imagine how my wedding (if I ever have one) will be like... I mean, I was just doing makeup for the maid of honor, and I was majorly stressed out... from all the girls in the room, and the wedding time approaching super fast... if I were the bride, I would be freakkking out!

I went with one of my bestest friends, Adaeze. She's Nigerian btw... unfortunately, I wasn't able to take many pictures since I had to keep the girls shine free during the photos before the wedding... but at least Adaeze and I had a good time.

We both bought our dress at Nordstroms.com for less than $30... and I wore these super cute Jessica Simpson patent pumps... one of my new obsessions... shoes! Anywhoodle, on with the pictures..

The gorgeous maid of honor. We stuck with a simple smokey eye and nude lips... I don't quite remember what I used... sorry!

I think I used Satin Taupe e/s all over lid, Carbon e/s to smoke it out in the crease and outer v, highlight (forgot name of shadow). Graphblack Technakohl liner on waterline, Blacktrack Fluidline on upper lashes, Shiseido Mascara Base, and another mascara.. forgot name. I applied Brew to her lips, Emote Blush to contour and the coral colored blush from the Fafi Collection on her apples.



And since I had some extra time, I did Adaeze's eyes and cheeks. I wasn't all too prepared with her skintone... otherwise I would have packed more blushes.. but we made due with the things I brought. I ended up using Scarlet Red blush on her apples, and smokiefied her eyes... and she's been generous enough to allow me to record her in an upcoming tutorial... but that's later (tease I know).



And some extra random pics...

What I used:

FACE
Strobe Cream
Studio Tech NC37 (yep I've been tanning)
Studio Finish Concealer NC35
Solar Riche (I think that's the name) Bronzing Powder to contour
Spaced Out Blush on apples

EYES
UDPP
Brule e/s all over lid & highlight
Typographic e/s in crease & outer v
Graphblack Technakohl Liner on waterline
Engraved Powerpoint Pencil on upper lashline
#32 lashes
Shiseido Mascara Base
Shiseido Lifting Mascara

LIPS
I forgot... lol
















And of course... can't forget some of us acting a fool...





I was going to post some stuff about shoes but I can't find the right pictures online. I'll have to take pics when I get home. Anyways, hope this suffices for now... hope y'all have a great day!
