Instead I ended up with incredibly heavy green-glitter eyelids and a seriously annoyed look on my face. How "golden and smokey" translated to green, I will never know. My only guess is that the over zealous young woman at Bare Escentuals heard me say "My bridesmaid dress is green" and that somehow meant "I would love for my eyes to match it exactly but with loads of glitter."
Personal PhotosIn the grand scheme of my MOH's wedding, my street-walker level of makeup was really just a blip on the radar. The evening however was not a total failure, we still danced all night to the piano-playing/lounge singer styles of a Richard Cheese sound-a-like.
I realize that my personal photos do not capture the true depth of how green and how glittery my eyes truely were. So I did some digging around on the Bare Escentuals website and wouldn't you know it, there was a photo of what my eyes looked like and a link to a You Tube tutorial... I am not kidding.
But it makes you wonder, why didn't I just do my own makeup?! Anything making you think that since you've been the one doing your own makeup all these years, why risk it on such an important day? I certainly am...
