Long Lasting Lips

Booking Brides {Summer 2013}

While it is only January 9th...2013 seems to be already booked up! My phone calender has too many little dots notifying me of events to come this year.

Looking back, I had an amazing 2012. I was blessed to meet some amazing women, and getting to work with them on their special day was such an honor! Honestly, every single girl I met was stunning-personality wise as well as just straight up good looking. It was so cool to connect with strangers, and once we met, there was a comfortably-like we have been friends for years. Hearing about their proposals, listening to their dreamy honeymoon plans... I love every moment I get with my brides!

Adrianna // ModCloth // San Francisco

Meet Adrianna. This little lady was super sweet, her mood was bubbly and intoxicating. While I curled her hair in the ModCloth studio she told me stories of her summer...and divulged her dreams for the future. I was inspired by her happy-go-lucky spirit...she had the best smile!! Her makeup for the stylebook was simple and chic: Grey smokey eyes, plum blush, and a berry lip color.

Try Christian Dior's '3 Couleurs' in Smokey Black 091 to get Adrianna's eyes!

Keep It Red

Target is a dangerous place. period. Often times I find myself running in for cotton balls...and leave with $120 worth of bathroom accessories, cosmetics, candles! Things I always really need. My last visit to Target resulted in purchasing a variety of cosmetic brand's long lasting lipsticks. I wanted to compare Covergirl, Maybelline, and Revlon's formulas, to see which was the best. I opted for nudes and raspberry tones and over the past week I have fallen for Maybelline's Super Stay 24 Color in Keep It Red.

While I adore the color, it's really the formula that I appreciate. I personally don't have time to touch-up, and I want to feel confidant with my lipsticks. Maybelline's Superstay 24 Hour Color had no feathering, fading, or caking. The others either dried my lips out, or where harder to apply. I felt free to eat, drink, and kiss with no need to look in the mirror the entire day! Other bonuses, people seemed to ask me more about what I was wearing when using Keep It Red, and the applicator was the easiest to apply to my lips.

*Tips for best results when applying a long-lasting lip product: Exfoliate your lips the night before and hydrate with some eye cream. Ensure your lips are dry and free from other product before a long lasting application. Allow a few moments for the color to dry before applying the conditioning balm. Remove with an oil-based makeup remover like Lancome's Bi-Facil Double Action makeup remover.

What gets you the most in trouble at Target? The cosmetic department? The bathing suits? The home decor section?
