    Today I had a wedding to attend, so here are some photos to share the makeup I wore. I kept it neutral in color and did a soft smokey eye, nothing too dark. For my outfit I work a black shift dress that I have owned for a few years that I only wear on special occasions.

      hey mandy, hope your feelin’ better, you look beautiful! your date is a cutie Smile how to you like the model in a bottle? does it make a substantial difference on the longivity of your makeup?

        Thank you Stephanie, I am feeling better recently Smile And thank you… he looked pretty handsome that day in his suit!

        I like the Model In A Bottle Eyebrow Sealer a lot. I prefer it over clear mascara (what I used to use) because it actually holds my eyebrow hairs in place so they aren’t messy, and keeps them from fading (I fill them in with powder + angled brush). I have the Model In A Bottle setting spray as well, but use it only occasionally because I find most ‘setting sprays’ don’t do much in terms of keeping me from getting shiny within a few hours.

      I was hoping for a full outfit picture – how did the opaque hose work out?

        We tried to get full outfit pictures, but the person operating my camera kept getting blurry shots so I didn’t end up with a decent photo of us all dressed up Frown

        I had a really hard time finding pantyhose! First was trying to find my size (a small pair) and second was finding something opaque but not unnaturally colored. When I couldn’t find opaque nude tights, I settled for semi-sheer black tights, which didn’t look too harsh but they did a pretty good job concealing the bruise since they weren’t nude in color Smile So everything worked out in the end!

      You look gorgeous! I love neutral smokey looks on you. Your hair looks fab irhgt now and your date is cute too!

        Thank you! Neutral smokey looks (or neutral brown shades all over) have been my go-to recently because they look good with any outfit and are pretty easily to throw together. The Chanel eyeshadow palette is so convenient because it has all the colors I need so it makes getting ready a no brainer in the morning.

        Also, thank you! I need to touch up my outgrowth for my hair soon which is a bummer as I love it when it’s faded to this point… and my wedding date did look pretty handsome in his suit that day. Smile

      Is that the famous Hawk or Raptor I can’t remember what he wanted to be called. XP He’s a cutie! I love your hair and I’m also glad that you’re sticking with it! Big Smile

        It is not him.. unfortunately he and I went our separate ways a few months ago. This is someone new that I’ve recently been spending time with. Smile
