Beauty Makeover Shopping Spree!

Lynnette is one of our nearest and dearest friends.  I can’t really speak enough about how much I love this woman.  She is truly awesome.  So when she asked me a few months ago if I would help her buy some skincare and make-up products, I said absolutely, yes.

Make-up Styling for a Wedding, Part IV: Game Time!

FRIDAY EVENING
I arrived in Seattle the Friday morning before the wedding on Saturday.  That evening, they hosted a fun barbecue at a park with the most spectacular view of the city.  Afterwards, we drove to Poulsbo out on the Olympic peninsula so that we could get an early start Saturday morning.  I had insisted that we do a make-up run-through sometime on Friday, so about 11 PM in our hotel room, we finally had our chance.

To come up with this list, I mentally walked through her make-up application.
