Achieving Perfect Makeup For Special Events ♥

Hi Babes!! It's been too long right? So many crazy things have been happening and I feel overwhelmed with thankfulness. And me and Adam tie the knot in just 6 sweet weeks! I can't believe I'll finally be his Mrs. Best feeling ever. It's such a breath of fresh air to be in a relationship that's so healthy and where we support eachother as companions and love eachother with passion. I feel very fortunate. But anyways, we got our pictures back from the amazing Tessa Barton.


We haven't gotten our formals back yet but the engagements are sooo amazing and the formals will be even better. We got pretty creative so you guys are in for a real treat for those ones. I wanted to post all the items I used to achieve this perfect airbrushed look with the makeup I did myself for our engagements. I really love doing make up and love finding out what's the hottest new brand! So below this picture is a list of all the items I used and direct links incase you want to try out some of these goodies! Thanks for looking bebes!! xx

Face: bareMinerals BARESKIN Pure Brightening Serum Foundation / I LOVE this foundation, I applied it with my e.l.f. Powder Brush ($3.00 I'm in love). You have to shake the foundation prior to using it because it has only a few ingredients and no additives!! Which is my favorite, cow jelly on my face and in my make up is a NO GO. 

Concealer: e.l.f. Concealer / I love this concealer, its cheap and it does its job! I just got my from a local drug store and I've been using it ever sense! It's super blend-able and not cakey at all! =)

Bronzer/Blush: BD1 Blush/Bronzer Duo from Flower Beauty / Okay so I discovered Drew Barrymore has a make up line that is carried in Walmart and it's amazing! She carries this duo, it's blush and bronzer in one and I love it! The bronzer is matte, which I'm a fan of and the blush is a warm peachy shade! My favorite! I've been wearing it all summer. I love to contour with the bronzer on my nose, cheek bones, jaw and where 'the sun would hit my face'. 

Airbrush: Aero Minerale Makeup Mist shade Honey / SO IN LOVE WITH THIS. If you want that perfect airbrush finish for an important event or pictures this is your jam! Not only is it affordable, but it's super easy to apply and gives the PERFECT finishing touch to your make up! So in love. 

Eyes: NYX Suede Collection / I love the warm tones in this eye-shadow pallet. Not only is it super affordable, but it's perfect for your crease and the shades are so pretty! I used this in the crease of my eyes and to highlight some of my face.

Eyes Continued: bareMinerals shade Camp / Prettiest shade EVER. Especially if you want a dewy shimmer. I love it with my brown eyes, but I'm sure it'd look beautiful on any colored eyes!

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo shade Dark Brown / Favorite brow product ever. Not to mention it has lasted for YEARS, I apply this product with an angled brush and and top my finished blended product with Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Genius Clear Waterproofing Gel. This stuff keeps your brows in place and helps mess them up for a messy more natural look ♥

Eyelashes: Ardell Natural Lash - Black 120 / I applied these to my upper lashes for a more dramatic look for our pictures and so they would show better in the pictures! They looked pretty but natural! I topped the look off  with a coat of Maybellene New York The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara. It's amazing and has 2 wands, one for your top lashes and one for your bottom lashes. It's important to apply a coat of mascara when using falsies because it helps blend everything in and make everything look perfect ♥

Lips: NYX butter Lipstick shade Candy Buttons with NYX butter Gloss shade Creme Brulee over the top! Such a pretty duo together. It creates a buttery yummy look. I always line my lips for an extra pop with NYX Lipliner Pencil in 810 Natural

Highlighter: Naked 2 Palette shade Booty Call / This has been my go-to palette for the past year. I love it and it creates the perfect shimmer and glow for highlighting and bringing out those areas that need a little pop! 

Hope you guys enjoyed this! LOVE YOU.
