A bridal boo boo turns into bliss........

Hi beauties, I know that's it has been a while since I've blogged something and it is not that I have forgotten about you but I am actually pursuing a Master's Degree and I also switched jobs (a promotion) so needless to say, life has been mad busy. In the midst of failing horribly to find balance, I had to do bridal makeup yesterday (Saturday, May 7, 2011). Seeing that I hadn't done any work lately, I considered this an opportunity to remind myself that I needed to still find balance in my crazy life.

This bride, who is actually a second or third cousin of mine had a Moroccan themed wedding with turquoise and yellow for the wedding and burgundy and orange for the reception. It was a beautiful, scenic, quaint and simple beach wedding. Yesterday was also our annual carnival Batabanoo (Google it and check it out) so the traffic was insanely crazy. Thankfully I left home early enough to make it to the bride's location on time.

Upon arriving on location, the bride was still in the midst of having her hair done so I thought I'd help (after setting up my makeup of course). The hair went well then it was time to start makeup until..................................................................oops!!!! I left my makeup brushes at home and couldn't go back to get them. Can we say EMBARRASSED, upset and frantic?!?!?!?!?! I was flipping out but had to maintain composure and tap in to plan B quickly! I've heard many times before that your fingers are the best tools so guess what I did??? Used um!!!! Yes, I used my fingers to apply a full face of bridal makeup. There's a first time for everything right? This was a true test of my training and creativity......

By the way, ALL of the pictures were taken with my cellphone....

Thanks ms. Viva Glam. I was stressed out because I left my brushes at home but was too happy about how everything turned out!
