Well, I have just been the worst beauty blogger ever. It has been months since I last posted! I have done some really fun makeup on some really lovely clients since then, and I am looking forward to sharing them with you!
Up until the end of September, I had been keeping very busy with my beautiful friend Ursula’s wedding. Ursula put me to WORK for her big day! I was a bridesmaid, the master of ceremonies for her reception, and I also did the makeup for her and her adorable mom, Martha. I was really honored that she entrusted me with such important duties on her wedding day. Along with Ursula’s other bridesmaids, we planned a super fun Mexican themed bachelorette party (Ursula is originally from Mexico and was unable to get married there, so we wanted to bring her home to her) and had a blast on her big day! I did the makeup for Ursula’s engagement photos, her bachelorette party, and her wedding day.
It was a different experience working on Ursula because she is severely allergic to makeup. She can tolerate some makeup on her eyes for a little while, but it cannot be applied anywhere else on her face or she will have an allergic reaction. I am totally devoted to a foundation, concealer and highlight and contour routine, so this was definitely a change for me. I wanted to make Ursula look glamorous and play up her features, but I had to make sure I didn’t send her to the hospital! For her wedding day, we decided to go with a soft gold eye with subtle definition and a flick of some old Hollywood liquid liner. I would have killed to put some MAC Ruby Woo on those lips, but alas I had to honor the allergy.
l I have posted some of the pictures below, I hope you enjoy them!
