FOTD – Halloween & Wet n Wild Red Velvet Lipstick Review

On my lips is Wet n Wild’s Red Velvet lipstick.  I rarely ever wear red lipstick but when I do this is my go-to one.  It’s a matte finish so you have to make sure your lips are nicely moisturized and not chappy cuz matte lipstick + dry flaky lips are not cute. Because it’s a matte finish, the formula is quite drying so by the end of the day you will probably need to pull out the Vaseline.  Another thing I like is how this lipstick stains your lips so even if you wipe it off to eat or by the end of the day your lips are stained a nice berry color.  The best thing about this lipstick is it’s only $2.99 CAD!  I have every single color in this matte line and I LOVE them.  They are all so pigmented and opaque.  The only bad thing I have to say is this particular color bleeds around my lips a bit so I have to use a lipliner when I use this color.  The other colors I have no problem with.  Overall I give this 4.9/5.  LOVE!

Hope everyone had a happy Halloween!!! 🙂

I woke up before the crack of dawn for my bride today.  Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy.  My whole ‘put-on-makeup-look-my-best-at-all-times-cuz-I’m-only-young-once’ motto went out the door!  Hahaha. I stumbled out of bed, barely brushed my teeth, (sorry Adeline! muahah) slapped on some eye cream n moisturizer and out the door I went. 

Everytime I have to wake up early (before 10am) for work, I always ask myself ughhhh whyyyyyyy did I agree to this!??  But I love what I do and I wouldn’t wanna be doing anything else!  It’s kinda like going to the gym…you don’t really wanna wake up for it and you have to drag yourself there.  But once you’re there it’s all good and you’re glad you went and when you’re done its so rewarding and you love it!! Haha. That’s how I feel about waking up early for wedding gigs. 🙂

Adeline had a bridal trial with me a few weeks ago.  I have never met a bride who loves a good smokey eye more than myself!  Yay! My kinda girl!!  🙂  Don’t be afraid of a dramatic smokey eye for your wedding.  It’s super sexy and photographs awesome.

Here is the finished look for Adeline’s big day today:

I also had the pleasure of doing the mother of the bride’s makeup as well and she looked so so beautiful. But unfortunately I forgot to take a picture.
😦

It was so nice meeting you and your mom Adeline! Thank you for the yummy food and remember to send me pics!

Common Courtesy

If you’re going to be 30+ minutes late please have the decency to call and let us know you will be late.  Don’t wait for us to call you. We ended up cancelling the shoot but like I had nothing better to do than to stand around and wait for you. You wasted my time and gas.  It is rude and disrespectful. Thanks. #endrant

I focused a little more on contouring my cheeks today and wearing my favorite Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in ‘Cherish Devotion’

Happy Thanksgiving! 

I’m thankful to be doing what I love as a living and I’m thankful for all the beautiful clients I have had the chance to meet and work with.  Thank you for a great year so far!  xx
