Make-up by Meredith

Hi friends! I can’t believe it’s already Friday! I really can’t believe that its May 1st tomorrow! Craziness! I hope time slows down a bit so we can all enjoy the nice weather.

Tomorrow fiancé and I are having our engagement pictures taken and I couldn’t be more excited! Remember when you helped vote for us to win this engagement session? I am still so thankful for everyone’s support!

In honor of our engagement picture photo shoot, I decided to team up with my friend, Meredith, who is a make-up pro, and get her opinion on how to do my make-up for the shoot. Meredith, being as awesome as she is, offered to help me with picking out some new make-up (can you ever REALLY have enough?) and then helping me practice applying it for the shoot.

She did one of my eyes and I practiced on the other. Here are some pictures I took of the final result. Let me know what you think!

It’s hard to take self pictures, but these are the best I could do!

I am loving how my eyes turned out. I want something simple and classic. I don’t wear too much make-up as it is, so I wanted to keep it to a minimal, but I also want to look nice for the pictures. I think this is a great compromise.

What do you think of my engagement picture make-up?

All in all it was a great make-up tutorial! Mere is an awesome teacher. She recently started her own blog, which documents various product features as well as make-up sessions she does. Check out her blog and say hello!

In other news – so many of you asked where I got my Engagement Party dress so I wanted to share that with you. It is from Nicole Miller – you can check it out here. It was a little pricey, but I loved it, and I splurged a little for the party. It was a special occasion! I obviously got it in white, but I love the new aqua color too. Maybe I will dye the white dress after the honeymoon!

It was a great dress, I was totally comfortable in it and I loved the fit and style. Worth every penny!


In other OTHER news – I finally signed up for the Oddyssey Half Marathon! It is a week before the North Face Endurance Challenge I am running (with some other beautiful but it will be good practice so I will be ready to go! I have talked with Lauren about running together and Melissa as well. We might have a little group of runners! If you want to join us, shoot me an email and let me know!

    We had so much fun doing our engagement pix. My friend is launching a photography business (she was a photographer at one of the papers I worked at) and did our photos in Savannah, Ga. I just ordered them and cannot wait to hang them on the walls!!

    Love the make-up! Looks very classic, but adequate! I want Meredith to put some eye-lashes on me – will she?
