in may

Petit Punch VieuxMay was a month that was filled with beauty, at least in regards to my blog posts.

Floral Wedding Make-up 5I shared a make-up and wedding hair tutorial for our upcoming anniversary photo shoot, and because it’s wedding season.

il_fullxfull.597864654_fcynThere were five fashion posts last month. I think that is the most that I have ever published! I showed you what was in the store, in addition to an OOTD specifically for men. This Etsy post had a lot of lovely comments from you, readers.

Terrarium Kit DIY 1I also experimented with wood and succulents. I had a Cellphone Holder DIY, Reclaimed Barn Wood Shelving, and a Terrarium Kit DIY.

Bedroom QuoteLast, but not least, this trend of grace also extended into my personal life when I made the beautifully terrifying decision to let go of a job that I have had for the last four years. Beauty is only skin deep.

floral make-up : how to

Floral Wedding Make-up 5For our fifth wedding anniversary this year, my husband and I will be having a photo shoot at the same locations and in our same ceremonial outfits that we wore five years ago! 

When we eloped in 2010, I did everything as frugally as possible. I purchased my dress for $9.99 on eBay, bought my shoes online, found my husband’s suit on the sale rack at Sears, took our own photos, went to a nearby Justice of the Peace, had the reception at hotel (which my siblings paid for), and did my own hair and make-up. I think that our most expensive item was my daisy bouquet and my husband’s corsage. Truthfully, we ended up making money off of our wedding. Much like a Kardashian, minus the deceit and publicity.

Also unlike a Kardashian, I strove to keep things simple that day. I am a lucky girl in that I have a sister who is an esthetician and a mum who was a hairdresser. Yet, I didn’t go to either of them for our wedding. My choice in make-up boiled down to what I was used to applying on a daily basis. This year, I would like to change that, since my preference in make-up, hair, and fashion has also changed. Now, I am a bit of a flower lover. :-)

This will be my Floral Make-Up look for our wedding anniversary session.

Floral Wedding Make-up 1Steps:

1. After washing your face, apply your base products. (I use Benzagel to firm and tone my skin, and Neutrogena lotion over top to keep it clear and moisturized.)

2. Take your foundation and a sponge and apply it evenly to your face and neck. 

3. Next, apply the eyebrow tint. I use the same brown eyeshadow as on my eyes, mostly because it matches my brows, but also because I hate pencils. Sweep away any fallout with your foundation sponge.

4. Now for your eyes. Using the palest eyeshadow, cover your entire upper lid to the underside of your brow, as well as the tops of your cheekbones for extra shimmer. 

5. Next, take the light pink shadow and apply it to your upper lid and crease of your eye.

6. Do the same with the purple eyeshadow.

7. Repeat this step once more with the brown shadow. However, be sure to go lighter on your lid and a little heavier in the crease of your eye. Then, using a smaller brush, carry that color down to the underside of your bottom lid. Wipe away any fallout.

8. Take your eyeliner and make a large sweeping cat-eye. This will probably require a few coats.

9. Once you are done lining your eye, put mascara on your top and bottom lashes.

10. Next, apply blush to your cheekbones. I decided to go a little heavier since I want my cheeks to stand out.

11. The second last step is to apply powder to your entire face. This will aid in sealing your make-up.

12. Lastly, it is time for the lipstick. My favourite is my MAC pink lipstick, but red or a dark purple would look just as nice.

Floral Wedding Make-up 4Don’t be alarmed if you seem to attract the birds and the bees with this floral make-up! Not the metaphorical kind of course. Although, that would be nice as well. ;-)))
