My 5 yr old T-ball-er!!
I mean, look how cute this little guy is in his uniform??! Luckily, he tells me every game that I miss, that he'll "hit a home run for you mommy!" Awwwww!!!!
So like I said, wedding season is in full swing. Have you been watching Tori and Dean's sTORIbook Weddings on Oxygen?? If not, I am a big Tori Spelling fan (started with the Tori and Dean Home Sweet Hollywood episodes, then actually read 2 of her 3 books- and I DON'T read, so that's a big deal!), and love that she is celebrating one of my favorite events to work- weddings!! If you're obsessed with weddings, and all of the planning that goes into them, then you'd love this show.
Unfortunately I am really bad at taking photos of the brides and b-maids I have worked with, because A. my digital camera is kind of a dinosaur and not taking great pictures lately and B. by the time I'm through with my faces, I'm too tired to even pick up a camera!
But I have done a couple weddings in the past week and wanted to share some pics I actually took the time to photograph. Wish I could cart a professional photographer around in my back pocket at times, but my amateur skills will have to do for now;-)
Bride Kim's BEFORE shot. Wish I looked this good before makeup!
Kim's AFTER shot on her wedding day with lots of false lashes applied!
I had the pleasure of working at Travis Salon in Atlanta, and they couldn't have been nicer or more talented! The owner, Gary, did an amazing job on Kim's (the bride) extensions. If you are in the market for more realistic looking hair, he's got the skills and know how!
I had to include a shot of her hair in the back- doesn't all of that hair look super natural??!
I loved how this turned out. It looked like she was born with this hair.
I also worked with another bride this week, Carrie, who we loaded on the lashes for! I just love it when brides go for the falsies....
I used around 9-10 individual clumps of Ardell lashes for her lash line- these are my most favorites!
The brochure for the "Beauty Inside and Out" event,
along with my notes on my "Mature Makeup Tips" I spoke on.
In addition to the brides I've worked with, I was honored to be asked to speak at Smokerise Baptist Church in Atlanta to a large group of ladies during their "Beauty Inside And Out" event. I spoke on the positive influence the art of makeup can have on females and their self confidence. I was also joined by a speaker on nutrition and yoga. So these ladies learned how to take care of themselves on the inside, as well as the outside!
Each table decorated so festive with Easter accents and orchids.
I got one of these flowers to take home to remember the event by!
Me spreading the word about how makeup can enhance our individuality!
Me answering some makeup questions after the event was over.
JennySue giving a quick demonstration on concealer tips.
In my speech, I focused on how God doesn't make mistakes in how we are all created, (which includes our faces and our bodies), but that we are all responsible for taking care of ourselves and enhancing our individuality. What better way than with makeup?? I love doing talks like this and inspiring women to feel better in their own skin and taking the mystery and difficulty out of makeup. I had so many sweet ladies come up to me afterward and tell me how much they appreciated the info I gave to them and how they were going to go home and experiment with my tricks!
Comments like this make what I do all worth while. But I still wish I could attend every single one of my son's t-ball games!!
