bridesmaid bouquet- clearly chosen to complement my eyes
So I’m back from the big Palm Beach wedding, which was amazing. And, because someone is watching over me, the ceremony was moved inside. That morning, it was in the 90’s and humid and, instead of baking in the heat, the bride walked down a gorgeous chandelier-draped aisle indoors. Perfect. Done. But I did walk over from my hotel to the event location, as well as sit through photos galore (some on the beach), the ceremony, and much crazy, sweaty dancing (the true sign of a great wedding)and, you ask, how did my makeup hold up?
Well, as I mentioned I had planned inPart 1 of this post, I first used L’Oreal Studio Secrets Face Primer, which glides on like a dream and didn’t cause any noticeable breakouts. Go get that. I then dabbed L’Oreal True Match Liquid Makeup on some trouble spots and patted on Mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky. Then for the eyes and the true test of waterproof makeup- the Maybelline Smudge-Proof Waterproof Eyeliner, though not the easiest to slide on, stayed on throughout the affair and the Maybelline Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara did as well. The mascara even gave me insanely long lashes, so my only complaint would be that it also made them a bit hard and unnatural feeling. Then again, for under ten bucks, I’d say its a good option.
My only miss would, then, be my lipstick. I first applied RevlonColorStay Mineral Lipglaze in Eternal Blossom as a base (readers will remember I did complain about it drying out my lips, but liking the natural color), and I figured it would be fine as a glue to the shimmery sheer Sally Hansen Diamond 12 Hr. Lip Gloss I got recently. Anyway, that little trick didn’t work so well. I’m not sure if the gloss on top deactivated the long-lastingness of the Colorstay, but in either case, I did find myself reapplying the gloss throughout the day. All in all, though, I have to pat myself on the back for doing my own hair (updo with a front poof, kind of 30’s style, helped by a ton of Elnett) and makeup with successful results. Let’s just say I did the Brooklyn Dolls proud.
