FOTD: Wedding Makeup

One of my best friends got married a few months ago in August (I posted about it in my personal blog where you can see more pictures) and we all got our hair and make up professionally done. Some people might argue that paying for a professional make-up artist is a "waste of money" but in my opinion - and as someone who personally loves doing my own make up, I think its absolutely worth it. Especially for something as big as a wedding! Professional photographers are not cheap and I don't know about you, but I would wanna look my absolute best for the photos regardless if they're for my wedding or not! When I started blogging years ago I kind of got to know Lani, a Hawai'i based make up artist, so when my friend told me that she's getting married in Hawai'i she was the first make up artist to come to mind! Her work is amazing and if you don't believe me, you can check out her instagram @lipsnlocksbylj BTW don't mind the giant pimple that decided to grace me with its presence the day of the wedding! -___- My makeup was definitely on point that day and it lasted me the whole day/night even in that island humidity.

Princess Jasmine

When I was growing up, Princess Jasmine was my favorite Disney Princess frankly because I thought I looked the most like her! I've been wanting to dress up as her for Halloween one year but never really found the perfect costume for it. I ordered one last year but the top was SUPER tiny and I just didn't feel like it looked like her so I threw it in the closet. I decided to use it this year but ended up making my own top by sewing some fabric over an old strapless bra. It's pretty poorly made since I did it last minute so if I ever use it again I'd probably re-do the top but it held up enough! The headband I bought from Hot Topic last year, too, and the necklace is from Wet Seal. For shoes, I don't own any gold flats, but I used my favorite brown/gold Michael Kors Bridget thongs. Wish I got a better shot of my makeup for a FOTD post, but I need to work on my photography skills!

OOTN: Girls Night Out

Two years ago, girls night out meant a night out at the club, and granted I am not that old, but I really can't handle those nights out anymore! I think I partied hard enough to last me a lifetime. Nowadays girls night consists of "late" dinner (around 8) and a few glasses of wine. One of my favorite wine bars in the Phoenix area, Postino's, opened another location in Tempe and we went this past weekend to have one of our regular girls' nights.
