So yesterday it really hit me, like for real for real. I was running around town like a chicken with its head cut off. Here's what I got into:
So the arsenal included a combination of Foundation, Illuminator, Blush, Lipstick, Lip gloss, Eyeliner and Eye Shadow.
Here's my face before - no makeup, blank canvas.
The makeup artist Erica Nicole used a flat Foundation Brush to apply the foundation in my shade.
Then used a loose powder to set the look.
Above is my face after foundation applied.
Then she used the Illuminator to warm up my face and applied smoky eyeshadow to my eyes.
Above is the complete look! She topped off my lips with "Fierce" - their intense burgundy red lip color. Thoughts?
Next up, I hopped over to the Monif C. showroom in midtown to see what options they had for my red carpet look.
The first look they pulled for my was the Zoe Charmeuse Dress in Blue. I love the asymmetrical style and the vibrant color.
Next I tried out the Marilyn Convertible Ruched Dress which was really sexy but I was a bit self-conscious about my midsection.
It's super convertible. There are like 40 ways to wear this dress. Love it!
I tried on the Zoe Printed Dress as well, which I thought was awesome but in the end, I ended up loving the blue one best! This is going to be in my top three arsenal for the big day.
Big Thanks to Monif C for allowing me to stop in! They have some AMAZING piece, and you can check them all out on the Monif C Website. Stay tuned to see if this dress makes the final cut.
Thoughts? Should I go with the "Zoe" Dress in Blue?
