Going to the Chapel...

This wedding took place in the cutest little white chapel with the most lovely bridal room filled with vintage pieces. I wish I had thought to take a few pics of it! It perfectly suited the bride Katt, who wore a vintage gown and wanted the classic red lip. It was so fun making her up for her special day!

Prom Updo

I got to do prom hair and makeup for a friend's senior prom and guys, how gorgeous is Skyler? The prom was Titanic themed and so we decided to do an updo and I completely love how it turned out.

So first I put Suave Dry Shampoo in the roots and teased the top section of her hair and pulled the top half up and secured it with bobby pins. Then I sprayed Redkin Wool Shake Slush (discontinued but you can still find it on Amazon) through the bottom section of her hair and curled it with a one inch curling iron. I then pinned the curls up to hide the bobby pins from the hair I already pinned up and created the updo. I kept some sections loose and just adjusted different sections and curls till it looked the way I wanted it to look and then sprayed and curled the front pieces around her face. I then sprayed everything with Big Sexy Hair Spray and Play Harder Hair Spray.

twisted silver

I almost never buy jewelry and I tend to keep things pretty simple, but I recently stumbled upon Twisted Silver and fell in love. I like that their stuff is super versatile and you can dress it up or down and mix and match. These are my new favorites necklaces and I really never want to wear anything else.

so I made a face mask

So I, myself, me…the cooking disaster made a face mask! I think a combination of stress and little sleep and hormones and a trip to the zoo (I am convinced the wind blew an excessive amount of dirt into my face) has left me with the biggest breakout ever. It's not pretty guys. And I just ordered new face products to change up my skin care routine, but they aren't here yet so there was just no avoiding it, I HAD to make a face mask. So I chose a tried and true one, with two ingredients. Meet "the super easy face mask that even felicia can't mess up."

So the good thing about this is you probably have both ingredients in your house right now. Aspirin is known to reduce redness, swelling, and pain while helping to clear up the situation! And Honey is just great on so many levels and will thicken the mask.

Step 1: use just enough water to dissolve tables, I used six and they dissolve very quickly so a little water is all you need

Step 2: add honey to thicken and mix with a spoon. (I used one spoonful of raw, local honey)

Step 3: I washed my face with warm water first to open up my pores and then applied the mask and I left the mask on for about 12 minutes before washing it off.

And that is it! It was so easy and I really could see a difference in the redness and sensitivity.
