Bright Eyed Makeup Tutorial

split2

WOW. That must have been one of the longest breaks I’ve ever taken from the blog!
The last couple of weeks have been a really exciting whirlwind. I’ve been working on some awesome¬†things with the Biz for one that I CANNOT WAIT TO SHOW YOU!

I also had a last minute trip to Hawaii last week to support my husband in his tournament! A few years ago Nick and I were both hacking away at our dream careers. It seemed like neither of us were able to do it on our own so we decided to team up. We made a deal that if Nick took some time off golf to help me get my business off the ground then I could be in more of a position to help him. I know it was hard for him to do that but I was so grateful that he believed in me enough to take the chance. Now that we are in a position where we have a team that can help run things we’ve been able to switch some of our focus back to him and his goals and so far he’s seen more success than ever. It’s really exciting!

It got me thinking about all of the times growing up that I heard that I should establish my career before getting married or having a family, for us it has always been the opposite. I don’t think I could have done any of it so far without my boys.

On to the tutorial! This has been my go-to everyday makeup look lately!

Makeover Monday – Alicia

Hello! I hope you all had a LOVELY Holiday!

I’ve been wanting to do this beautiful woman’s makeup for along time! I just love her face! Her skin is so soft and smooth and she has one of the prettiest smiles I’ve ever seen (I know the before and after don’t show that off but if you watch the video you’ll get to see it in all it’s glory!)

What I used:

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisture (just on the outside edges of her face to even out the redness a touch)
IIID Foundation in Medium (sunlit + stone + pink grapefruit + pearl) I find when you have a lot of natural red undertones it can be very difficult to pink a foundation that doesn’t turn you into a completely different person! To me the tone of her skin is gorgeous and I don’t want to change it, I want to enhance it. That’s why I love using the yellow based highlighter because it brightens and evens her complexion without looking like a mask.

Brun on her brows

Lip liner is actually a sample I’m testing that isn’t for sale yet but it’s pretty similar to this Brow pencil

Lip Color is Nude Stix Love

Kat Von D black Liquid Liner

Brun & Soft Brown on her lids
