@lorealparisusa Being a L’OREAL Paris Pro Makeup Artist it’s always great to hear who our new spokesperson is. They couldn’t have picked a more perfect GENT to represent skin care for the guys. Gerard Butler is definitely a GUY’S GUY and eye candy for the ladies.

Bridal Glam Makeup on a Budget

Brides are spending so much on their weddings that the last thing she wants to worry about is cutting back on their wedding day makeup. Your wedding day is a day for you to shine and when you walk down the aisle you want to know that your makeup will be just as flawless as the carats on your finger. Whether having a ceremony at home, or a destination wedding abroad, bridal makeup is just as important as the wedding dress, the wedding photos and the wedding cake. So how do you look as fabulous as a Hollywood celebrity on your wedding day, but on a budget? Here is where a glam girl begins:

My favorite budget makeup is L’OREAL PARIS cosmetics. To create this glamxurious look I used the following items:

*L’OREAL PARIS Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base

*L’OREAL PARIS Studio Secrets Professional Color Smokes Shadow in Blackened Smokes

*L’OREAL PARIS HIP High Intensity Pigments Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Black

*L’OREAL PARIS True Match Blush in Baby Blossom

*L’OREAL Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black

*L’OREAL Colour Riche Lipcolor in Sea Fleur

Our last night in Milwaukee, was fun. I tell you what. The people in Milwaukee can drink. I thought New Orleans was a drinking city with the drive thru windows that opens at 10am but after being their I was so wrong.

Some of the L’OREAL travelers, the BA’s, and the TECH peeps got together and went out to get drinks. I couldn’t do much becuase of my feet (pics below). So, I was moving a little slow and had to keep my feet up on the stool. But you know I don’t turn down complimentary cocktails :)))

L’OREAL Makeup Tour

All of my L’OREAL tour info is coming in slowly. I will be flying out on August 4th. I will not be home for my anniversary this year which is on August 5th. But these are things that I have to deal with. Because of my busy schedule I always have to miss out on something. But hubby is understanding.

I am actually excited about being on the road and I get to see my girls who I don’t see often because we all live in different cities. I don’t know if Debra and Veronica will be there this year. So I will just keep my fingers cross.

I have 12 hour days again and I don’t have to worry about traveling with makeup since L’Oreal takes care of all that. All I need is black pants and shoes and a bag to put makeup that they will give at the end of the tour. So no drama at the airport with lots of luggage. I will bring my laptop so I can stay in touch with you guys. Don’t have my hotel info yet and car service info yet but I am sure they will send me that this week or so.
