Here’s my second option for new years eve. This doesn’t photograph as pretty as the gold dress, but it’s still such a gorgeous/elegant option!! I think I’d do the same makeup/hair as the gold dress for this one as with outfit #1.
Accessorized this outfit with…
Pim + Larkin Necklace, BCBG Clutch, DV Black Heels
Dress (click here)~ this is on sale too now!! Darn it…but at least you guys can get it for less!
Vegas Makeup is my favorite Kind! I get to do some fun, funky and trendy tricks and just have FUN. During my normal life I keep to a normal makeup routine without much variation. Here’s a bad picture below. The lighting came out super yellow and you don’t get to see some of the more fun colors I picked. *sigh * I need to learn to bring my camera more often. *shaking head * So try to ignore the bad yellow lighting. =(
Anyway~~ I did some shading, highlighting…and used a VERY heavy hand =P I also curled my hair, which is a TOTAL rarity these days!
Here’s my fake eyelash trick below! I always wear TWO strips (different kinds) on each eye. It makes my lashes look fuller and my very small eyes bigger.
(can you see the difference??)
I LOVE fake eyelashes and buy them in bulk in Koreatown. I rarely have a reason to wear them now…but it’s a big treat when I do get to put em on. ❤
This last weekend was incredibly tame and I basically watched Sons of Anarchy all weekend. This is not a show I thought I would like…but I’m pretty freaking hooked.
Sunday was an awesome day of just hanging out with Markel. We went to church, went grocery shopping, hung out in ktown, and then played at night with our new neighbors =)
Lunch with friends~
Korean BBQ dinner at home =)
I loved last weekend. I relaxed and just hung out at home~~ Can’t wait for this weekend (3-day weekend) to do a little hiking, organize our guest room (we’re still figuring out what to do with it) and play with Markel ❤
This weekend was filled with lots of mixed emotions…We had two deaths in the family and I celebrated my Bachelorette. Luckily I was able to spend the weekend with the best ladies who I love and who were incredibly supportive. xoxo Here’s a small sneak peak of our weekend.
I wanted to hire a makeup artist for my engagement shoot, but mine was busy helping a wedding out (she’s super fab and always booked). So…I attempted to do it myself! Here are some pictures I took of my makeup before I went to get my hair done at Dry Bar in Brentwood, CA.
Last pic of the day, after all the pictures~~ =) Exhausted, but Happy~~
Got my Hair Done at Dry Bar, here are some pics of that =) LOVED my stylist (Alex). He really gave me volume, curls and SUPER soft hair!
Over the weekend, Markel and I took our engagement pictures =) We went to Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills and really had the best time ever! The shoot lasted about 5.5 hours and at first…we were super nervous and high strung from running around all morning trying to get our outfits/props together. But once the shoot started, our photographer (Joanne Pio) was freaking AWESOME. She put us at ease and just had us act normal for the entire shoot. LITERALLY, an hour/two after the photoshoot, Joanne sent us 4 photos and 1 instagram photo of the day. She was INCREDIBLE!
We have one more shoot left at the beach that we’ll do later this month. I’m seriously SO PSYCHED for it!! xoxo
Please check out her page: Joanne Pio. She’s incredibly talented, easy to work with and her service is phenomenal. Can’t wait to see the rest of the pics. xoxo =)
