Engagement Party Photos Woot Woot!

Me and both of my Maids of Honor!

Our engagement party was an absolute BLAST to say the least. We kept it to just close family so my fiance's family and my family could meet each other. Everyone got along great! Booze, food and fun galore.

My friend Nicole did a killer job on my hair! Loose curls which she didn't even hairspray - they stayed perfect until the next day - I even SLEPT on them! I usually wear my hair straight, so I wanted to look a little different for the party =) A touch up and some highlights didn't hurt either i'm sure!

I had a false eyelash debacle that you wouldn't even believe, it was honestly awful! I'm usually a pro at applying them, but for some reason these lashes did not want to stay attached to my lid. My eyes were turning into a gluey mess and the lashes were all bent and messed up. Finally, I got so frustrated that I just didn't wear them - and i'm kind of glad I didn't! I wore my Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hour lipstick in Eternal Rose (see review here) and I think that did the trick to perk up my look! The lipstick shade went nicely with my dress, and I barely had to reapply throughout the night. Other than the usual foundation,concealer,etc I loaded my face up with Benefit's Moon Beam to get that dewy/luminous look. It looks great in photos!

Just wanted to share a few photos with you guys. Hope everyone is having a kick ass summer so far! <3

  2. Omg, you look STUNNING! And how adorable are your mom and gma?! Great genes in your fam ;) I had a similar eyelash crisis getting ready for a date night not too long ago.. I have no idea what the major malfunction was but I did glue one of my lids open at one point lol! It seems like the more frustrated you get the worse it makes the situation.

  4. @Jessica - thanks so much! It really not "me" - I usually wear black to everything, but I thought I would try something different =)

    @WitchHazel - thank you doll! you're so sweet =) and yeah, I don't get it, I'm usually awesome at putting lashes on and these did NOT want to stay. I got the same brand and everything, not sure what the hell happened!
