Makeover takeover

Wednesday, June 1, 2016

My makeup bag typically consists of 5 products and my routine typically takes about 5 minutes. Fancy event?  add about an extra 10 minutes. 

So when I have to go to an extra fancy event like this indian wedding weekend in Texas a few weeks ago, I've lately been indulging myself to a makeup and hair session.  To me, they are so worth the time and effort and I get about 2 hours to relax, sip a glass of wine, and indulge in uninterrupted instagram browsing, text chatting with my bff's, or just read a magazine. Blowout bars and now makeup bars are popping up everywhere so that everybody can get that glam look! Here, makeup and hair cost about $100 including tax & tip and products for each session.
My Thursday Night Makeup -  I asked for "dramatic but still natural"
Saturday's reception makeup with Ryan from Blue Mercury. Even looks perfect in the sun!
Ryan at Blue Mercury worked makeup magic. So awesome that I came back 2 days later for him to do my makeup for the wedding reception (which was black tie festive). I asked him to give me the rundown of the tools of the trade and he was happy to oblige!
  • Lune+Aster Real Glow Primer. 
  • Laura Mercier Silk Cream Foundation. 
  • Nars Radiant Concealer. 
  • Bronzer and contour Gienah from Nars. 
  • Blush is Nars Taos
  • High light is Laura Mercier in Starlight 
  • Lip its Brown from Bobbi Brown
  • Lip liner is Chocolate from Bobbi Brown 
  • Nars mascara: Audacious

The final look! 
I wish I woke up like this...
The brows, the contouring, the flawless skin? Thank you ryan! My other half was seriously rolling his eyes at the amount of selfies I was taking during the night. LOL.  I don't care -  how often does mama get to treat herself to a made up face?!
another selfie...
 Also want to give props to the 2 girls at the Hair Bar in south lake who did curling iron magic on my tresses in literally 10 minutes. No lie - that's a record. And I have a thick head of hair. Thanks ladies!
