Here Comes The Bride: Tonya’s Wedding Hair & Makeup

Sometimes dreams do come true. My very close friend Tonya found her prince, Ted, and they were set to marry the weekend of Cinco de Mayo. I was flattered when she asked me to do not only her wedding make-up but also her hair. Wait… yikes! You want me to do your hair?? Um, sure I do my own hair for events plenty, but I haven’t done a lot of updos on other people’s heads. However, Tonya has naturally curly hair, which I knew would make the updoing a lot easier. I told her she could count on me.

A few weeks before, Tonya came over for a run-through so we’d have a game plan the morning of the big day. We had already been pinning hair and make-up inspirations on Pinterest for months, so we had good starting points. Tonya and Ted’s wedding was Mexican-themed, and she wanted to wear big, colorful flowers in her hair. For the make-up, we would go classic but bold enough for the photographs.

Judicial Review: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer

When I first saw the color selection I wasn’t going to bother: even their lightest shade looked way too dark for me.  But for under $10 what did I really have to lose by trying it?  I am SO glad I gave it a chance!

Judicial Review: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream ShadowI’ve been wearing Bobbi Brown eye shadows for as long as I can remember, but for some reason I never tried her Long-Wear Cream Shadow.  However, this particular summer has been so brutally hot that no matter what I did my shadow was creasing by lunch time.  I decided to give Bobbi’s Long-Wear Cream Shadow a shot.

This product has nice variety of shades available, some shimmery and some matte.  I took Sandy Gold and Heather home for a test drive. Continue reading
