Get Your Face On Party

Because I'm feeling brave...

I'm joining the Party over at The Stories of A to Z. Its a Before & After party, but its not about furniture this time. Its my face. Ahhhhh. Wait... please don't run away.

She is bearing it all for the world of blogging, well her face at least. I had so much fun looking at everyone who linked up to the party. It would be unfare not to join and I love playing with makeup. I use to work at M.A.C. (well technically I'm still employed there, just "on-call") so I've had a lot of fun applying makeup on other people. This brought me back to those days. Not that those days were long ago at all. A year maybe...?
 I'm not a full face of makeup kinda gal, only sometimes. Most days, its concealer, eyebrow powder, tinted chapstick, and mascara. Anyways, here it goes. I'm feeling brave. (deep breath)

BEFORE. I got dressed, but thats about it. I haven't even brush my hair yet.
(p.s. I'm cameraless today, so these are all taken with my scotch taped iphone.)
Time to bust out the goods.

Can you see me in the mirror? I'm waving at you. 
I dont know if you can tell from this photo, but my eyes are done (without mascara yet), and I have little dabs of foundation on my forehead, nose, and chin. I'm almost there. 
I love the "mascara face". Does anybody not look goofy putting mascara on...? I doubt its possible. 
And if you're wondering what in the heck I am doing in the little picture on the bottom left... I'm bronzng my cleavage. Hey... every little bit helps. Its a little trick I use to do to my bridal clients. But dont put too much or it will make them look really far apart. ;)

And thats it folks... Much better I think. Now if only I did this every day. Nah, I'm too lazy.
I decided to wipe off the natural color lipgloss and go for some RED. Ohhh la la. Sometimes a girl just needs some RED lipstick. My favorite: Mac Red, by M.A.C. obviously.
 I have that song stuck in my head now...
"Red red wine you make me feel so fine
You keep me rocking all of the time". 
Maybe that means I need a drink. Yes, wine will be great right now. Off I go. 
Don't forget to go over and check out everyone else's Before & Afters too! It's really fun to see people without makeup on.


  1. you look beautiful! I am sooo jealous of your stash!! I only have one mac palatte and it is 2 pans shy of full.

  8. So cute! Love the smokey eyes! I used to be a make up artist too and I have done a ton of weddings! Its so much fun but I too am way too lazy to do "full" make up every day. Actually I'm too lazy to do "partial" make up every day. lol. Gotta love MAC...my fave!

  9. You are too cute for words! Thank you for being brave enough to link up and share your tips. Your makeup "palette" looks like so much fun to play with. I think I'm having makeup envy here! Love the cleavage tip. I'd forgotten about that one and need all the help I can get in that area so I'll be re-implementing that strategy.

  10. You are beautiful, both before and after...I would kill for your gorgeous cheek bones! Beautiful!!!

    Blessings, Grace
