I'm not going to rattle off the "I've been so busy" excuse since you can probably imagine what life must be like 5 weeks before someone's wedding. Since I've been missing from the internet, some things have happened...
A rental agreement has been signed for our very first home together..
You can imagine the fun/excitement that has given us the past few weeks. Kyle is keeping our little nest company until after the wedding, then I'll make my big move over there.
I've been spending a lot of time on wedding prep, picking up the last few gifts for our wedding party, etc. Every chance I get, I've been taking yoga classes and working out to get ready for my fitting (next Monday!). 2013 has just been a whirlwind!
While finalizing some of the "day of" plans, I finally decided that I will just be doing my own wedding make up. I love having an expert's touch, but all in all I just want to feel like myself at the wedding. I have never left a professional make up session feeling fully comfortable (I always wipe some off here, add some there). I plan on doing a few trials before the wedding of course, so I went out and picked up the supplies I'll be needing.
Please know that it is not 100% necessary to go spend tons of money on new make up. I have had my eyes on these products for a while now, and figured they'd come in handy on the big day!
Here's what I bought:
Benefit Confessions of a Concealaholic kit- I literally don't own concealer so this was a must. It comes with some fantastic tools including mini brushes. For deets, I recommend watching a tutorial on youtube, they give great descriptions of the products included!
Benefit Brow Zing kit (in medium)- My brows are an unruly pair. This kit includes a pigmented wax and a professional powder for enhancing one of our face's biggest focal points.
Covergirl Blush- I don't for the life of me remember the name and I am at work or I'd check...haha. I do know it is a peachy hue, perfect for my freckly skin.
Benefit Starlet Lashes- These are to pump up my eyes on the wedding day. I love the pin-up look the half set gives.
NYX Natural eyeshadow pallet- This pallet has exactly what I'm looking for when it comes to bridal eyes. Matte colors (perfect for pictures) and a few sparkles in warm, summery colors. VERY excited to use this set!
I also snagged Covergirl 24 hour felt tip eyeliner and a lash blast waterproof mascara the other day. So far, I love those products as well!
This week is an exciting one for my fam and I, so I'll hopefully be back this weekend to say hello! Oh, how I've missed you blog world!
