Lashes 101 for Destination Brides

When I complete a makeup application the last item I always grab for are lashes. A must have item that is perfect for all brides on their wedding day…a day wedding, an evening wedding, a destination wedding, and even a wedding at the justice of the peace. With so many voluminous and dramatic styles like goldglam leaf, snow twist, farfallina false, minx, criss cross, synthetic, hand crafted feathers, and faux diamonds all with alternating lengths to choose from, it’s almost like shopping for the perfect clutch handbag or stiletto shoes.

Family Holiday Road Trip

Because I had some free time and hubby & the kids were home from school and work we decided to have a fun family day. When I was young my family use to do road trips. We would just get in the car in go. No GPS No Maps just go where ever the driver decided to drive. We would stop in enjoy the city we rode into, stop in eat, shop, pull over in go to a fair or festival, or what ever we seem to find. I have taken my family childhood road trip game into my kids life and when we have down time in find ourselves getting bored at home we go on road trips.

So we are off...

I am in utter shock after hearing of Brittany Murphy's passing. Another life taken so soon. It puts life into a whole other perspective. Time to focus on your loved ones and don't wait to say I love u because tomorrow isn't promised. This is so sad and it seems like a lot of lives are being taken this year.
I loved her in Don't Say A Word and Clueless. She will be truly missed. My prayers go out to her family, Chris Henry's family, and my lil 16 year old cousin's best friend's family after their losses also this week.
Be safe and Happy Holidays.

Rocker Rehearsal Dinner Makeup

written by Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

Wedding rehearsal dinners can be just as stressful as the big day for most brides. WHAT TO WEAR, HOW TO WEAR YOUR HAIR, HOW BOLD CAN YOU WEAR YOUR MAKEUP, are a few things brides tend to worry about. So, I try to make it easier and give my brides a completely separate makeup look from her wedding day. I love applying an edgy glam bold look for the rehearsal dinner. Continue reading here
