Having my makeup done was really fun and informative. Amy G at New Leaf is a great makeup artist and she taught me many tricks on how to apply and maintain your makeup. I have numerous weddings to go to this summer so I wanted a fresh face/smokey eye look. I feel like I am much better prepared to apply eyeliner and shadow now. I even indulged in a few Smashbox and Cargo products; some champagne eye shadow, a black eyeliner, and reverse lip liner which is a nude colored pencil that you apply around your lips on your skin to keep your lipstick in place. Great for bright reds that run onto your skin. Because I never wear makeup, I feel kinda silly when I do, like a kid who just went crazy in her mom's makeup box. I think a happy medium between the before and after is good for me. See you tomorrow with my new haircut and (hopefully) improved makeup skills!
