Bridal Makeup Trial!

Oh hey, it's been awhile! A lot has been going on, and last weekend I did a trial run on my friend Jamie's wedding makeup. She is marrying her sweetheart at the end of November and we took our OTHER friend's wedding last weekend as an opportunity to test out some looks. I was so excited (and nervous) when she asked me to do her makeup for the big day.

Jamie doesn't normally wear much makeup, so she wanted it to look very natural. Since I'm not really a makeup artist, I asked her to just invest in a good foundation. the MAC counter we went! Originally, I wanted her to look into Makeup Forever HD foundation, but there is no retailer in sight in middle Georgia. After some good research, we went for MAC's Studio Fix Fluid foundation. The girl at the counter immediately matched Jamie's skin to the right shade, and I couldn't help but get myself a few things while we were there. 

Introducing my very first MAC products:

Brown Script

Naked Lunch

All That Glitters

Okay, so enough of me...let's get back to Jamie. On our first trial, we did some purples and lighter shades in the inner corners, but she felt it was still a little much for her. So for the next day, we went with all neutrals and the result was a very fresh face, exactly what she was looking for!
