We’ve been inspired to update our studios’ playlist to something a little more new. Here’s our second hint for our big announcement on Friday! Any ideas as to what it could be? Follow us on social media with #mydbeauty and tag us with your best guess!
Here at Makeup for your Day we LOVE big hair! That is why for our announcement on Friday we have to go BIG! Any ideas what we will be announcing? Follow along on #mydbeauty on our instagram and facebook pages. Comment below with your best guesses!
We’ve got two looks to inspire you today whether you are going downtown or just having some green cupcakes at work. These two looks should help to keep you from getting pinched!
Our talented artist, Valentina face charted this look and it is perfect for work or a daytime event. Who doesn’t love a good green eyeliner?
I love how the different green hues transition into each other! This look is actually easier to achieve than you might think. To create the ombre wing effect I simply used an angled brush that I sprayed with a spritz of water to intensify the green pigment. I laid the light color down first and then slightly overlapped with the darker green to create a transition effect. I then added an even darker color green just on the wing to create a small amount of depth. Top it off with your favorite mascara and you are ready to go!
The next look Valentina created is a sultry green and gold look. This would look amazing for an evening out!
This look has a lot of layers. I first started with a “transition shade” that was slightly darker than my skintone throughout the crease. I then packed in some of the darker pigment do the outer corner of my lid. I then patted on the matte green shade on my lid, then popped some gold shimmer pigment on top! I finished the look with a bold black liner. For a more intense look you could pop some of the green pigment on your lower lash line as well. Top this with your favorite set of falsies and enjoy some green beverages!

February is Bridal Show Month for Makeup for Your Day! Our final bridal show for February was back in Durham at The Cookery! This venue is also historic and has a very unique and urban feel to it.
This event had a live band and the guests were encouraged to visit every vendor for a chance to enter a raffle!
Guests could watch a painting in progress
Guests enjoyed music from a live band
Yummy options from Donovan’s Dish
Guests could enjoy live music, a full bar and some yummy flatbread options from Donovan’s Dish.
Megan and I had so much fun chatting with brides and their fiances about their upcoming wedding plans! We met guests who were just recently engaged and some that were just putting the finishing touches on their events.
Bridal shows are a great way to get to chat with vendors and see venues fully decorated. If you find yourself at a bridal show in the future, please make sure you stop by and chat with us! My favorite part of it all is meeting couples and sharing in the excitement of planning a wedding and getting to know them.
That wraps up our bridal shows before we enter this 2016 wedding season. We’ve got a lot of work to do catching up with all the brides we met at the shows this season! See you at the next show! -Kelsi
February is Bridal Show Month at Makeup for Your Day and I will be documenting all of the shows we went to! Megan and I were back in Durham again for a bridal show at the Museum of Life and Science.
I think that this venue brought out the inner child in me. We were set up in the weather room and I don’t know how many vendors can say they could chat with brides next to a tornado!
Our models for this event were actually employees at the museum and were such a treat to chat with. They talked about how great it was to work for the museum!
There was live music, food trucks and live animals, all of which could be brought out at an event. I met a lizard and a snake at the bridal show! How cool is that!?
I also got to try some honey lavender ice cream from The Parlour ice cream bus! It was so delicious! Also, who doesn’t love running up to the ice cream truck for a sweet treat!
Megan and I got to chat with some great brides who had come to the museum. Some were already planning on having their wedding there, others were getting a feel for the place. I am sure after this fun night, the choice would be easy!
Our booth was located next to Jessica of Jessica Arden Photography! She’s a good friend of Makeup for Your Day and a very talented photographer from Durham!
I will continue to document the bridal shows we attended this February on the blog! Catch up with us tomorrow to see where we will go next!
February is Bridal Show Month at Makeup for Your Day and I will be documenting all of the shows we attended! We were invited to be a vendor at The Rickhouse in Durham. This show was fun because it was on Valentine’s day, so it seemed extra romantic.
I really like this venue because it carries so much charm and history. We had a great view of the brewery! Megan and I came out for this show and we got to chat with some great vendors and meet some of the fun brides-to-be!
We had our flowers provided for this show by Tre Bella and they were so gorgeous! I love the way they looked next to the brick background.
We had a great view of the big dance floor that The Rickhouse has. I feel like Durham brings out the unique creativity in people! At this event I got to meet Riley Mclean and see his tin types! What a cool way to take a portrait!
I will be documenting the rest of our February bridal shows this week! Tune in tomorrow to see where we went next!
February was Bridal Show month at Makeup for Your Day! We kicked it off at the Carolina Inn Bridal Show in Chapel Hill!
Caroline, Abbey, Megan and I started our day by making over our two gorgeous models.
I had so much fun at this show because we come to the Carolina Inn several times a year for weddings, and it was great to see the place totally decked out. Several of our artists & stylists were able to come to the event to meet all of the brides that came out to the show.
We even got to hang out with Heidi Dawson, the director of catering for the Carolina Inn and a good friend of the Makeup for Your Day team. One of our resident stylists, Megan is getting married this year and was able to attend the show with her fiance, Anthony!
One of my favorite parts of bridal shows is the food! I don’t know that I have seen so many different food vendors in one place before! We had cake, pie, chicken and waffles on a stick, and there was even a s’mores bar. Yes.. a buffet where you could make your own s’mores. YUM! Jen and Susanne had to grab a cheerwine and donuts!
I will documenting all of the bridal shows Megan and I went to in the month of February on the blog over the next few days! Please tune in tomorrow for more!
