Wedding Bliss!

  My aunt got married this weekend and it was a blast!!!! Awesome people, yummy food, over all a great celebration! The venue was at a golf course overlooking the city. There was a gazebo where the ecstatic bride and groom shared their vows, and towards the end of the ceremony, the sun was ready to take it's rest leaving pink and orange clouds on the horizon. We all walked to the hall for the food and party. Beautiful speeches were given that even brought tears to a couple of my uncle's eyes. We are so happy for my aunt and her lucky husband that thinking about it just lifts my spirits up. When I talked to my aunt about her fiancée before the wedding, I could just hear the happiness in her voice and see the sparkles in her eyes. I know they're going to be happy together!

    The party was a success! The bouquet was thrown to the maid of honor, the bride's sister, after many attempts, which was hilarious! The garter was caught by the best woman, the father and daughter dance was beautiful, and the cake had personality! Lol! There was a lot of dancing involved, they might have been one song that I didn't dance to but for the rest, I was shaking my goodies like there's no tomorrow! Lol!!! It was great to see my family and friends, I am so glad I took time off from work to attend.
That's me applying the lip creams to my grand ma!

  The color scheme was olive green and I designed my makeup to match. I made sure to keep my lip creams, lip gloss and my Mally Evercolor Poreless Face Defender in my purse for touch ups! I also ensured to wear waterproof eye makeup just incase I get teary or sweaty from dancing. These are the products I used:

A photo with my aunties and cousin. I did my little cousin's makeup too!

Isn't she adorable?!?!?!?!

    So that's everything! I'll post a video to go along with this so you can see how I did my makeup! This look would be great for prom or any formal event. Heck! Wear it on a night out and you would look beautiful!

    The whole night was so much fun it lasted until morning! My aunt, her best friend, a couple of my cousins and I went to a casino after changing out of our party dresses... It was funny since all we did there was eat! It was still a blast!

    I am so happy for the bride and her lucky groom! Best wishes to both of them! And  for my brand new uncle: welcome to the family!

Question:  My aunt, the bride, had neutral eyes, rosy cheeks and pink lips. Basically, a natural look with a pop of color. How about you? What kind of makeup look would you prefer on your wedding day?
