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.
The two of us at my birthday this summer
Lynnette is 47 years-old, has raised two beautiful daughters both in their 20s, is married to a wonderful man, and works full-time. As you can see from the photo above, she has bright blue eyes and great luminous skin. Let’s all hope we age as well as she has.
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.
Last time we talked, Jenn had responded to some make-up inspirations that I sent her. She was on board for a neutral palette of an overall peach overtone, with punched up eyes. Based on that information, I devised an “ingredients list” to cook-up Jenn’s perfect wedding make-up look. Some of the products she would buy, and some I would bring with me. To come up with this list, I mentally walked through her make-up application.
