Look Picture Perfect at your Destination Wedding!

It's challenging to find vendors when you are planning a destination wedding - especially a Makeup Artist.  Just because you are getting married on a beach (or in Italy) doesn't mean your makeup shouldn't be as perfect or as picturesque as your surroundings! 

A great option is booking a personalized makeup lesson with a Makeup Artist in your area.  You can choose whatever look makes you happy and a professional Makeup Artist can help you choose the best products for the climate and location and teach you how to apply them with confidence and precision.

A Destination Wedding Makeup Workshop would also be a fun activity for you to do with your bridal party/family so they can look their best too!  The best part is, you will have a skill that you can use the rest of your life!

A Peek Inside a Makeup Artists Shopping Bag

On yesterdays trip to Sephora I was on a mission for new Waterproof Mascara that adds VOLUME!

The winner - DIORSHOW - BLACKOUT - WATERPROOF(A Sephora Exclusive)

DiorShow Black Out Waterproof Mascara

I am still in love with Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof to prime lashes before I apply falsies but for those Brides, Maids, and Moms that would rather go falsie-free I needed a product that would give big fabulous lashes but not run when the tears of joy do!  Not only did the DIORSHOW - BLACKOUT - WATERPROOF make my lashes superlong but it did not transfer or smudge the rest of the day or come off when I washed my face!  It gives a shiny patent leather sheen to the lashes and separates while building volume!  Seems just about perfect to me!

Beauty and the Beach

Do you ever have a hard time packing your beauty products before going on a trip? I have a list of must-have beauty products that are perfect for any vacation - espcially your honeymoon! 

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover – Travel Size
Perfect for removing your waterproof eyemakeup remover while providing moisture to the eye area that may become dehydrated during traveling

Philosophy Hope in A Jar Moisturizer (To Use At Night) – Travel Size
Light moisturizer to seal in your tan while you snooze

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20
My favorite tinted moisturizer with the sun protection you need (even in a cool climate) - easy to apply with buildable coverage and a no-makeup look

I recommend purchasing a shade darker of your every day concealer

Too Faced Aqua Bunny Bronzer
Love this cream bronzer - goes on very sheer and gives you a natural highlight

Lip Fusion Lip Conditioning Stick SPF 15 “Bitten”
I'm obsessed with this tinted lip balm - sheer color like you've just had a popscicle with sun protection and a minty aroma

Stila Convertible Color “Lillium”
One of my go-to double-duty products give the lips and/or cheeks a natural glow

Sephora Eye Palette “Walking On the Moon” Or “Not That Shy”
Sephora eye shadow Palettes come in dozens of combinations - these are the most wearable/natural cool and warm options

Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes "Black"
waterproof eye pencil is a must for those romantic dinners out and sexy room service desserts

Maybelline Waterproof Mascara
no smudge formula that will take you from the pool to the jacuzi and back again
