How sweet it is..

My dear friend and ever so talented photographer, Amanda  hooked me up with her sweet baby cousin.. or second cousin-inlaw once removed..   What does once removed even mean?  Were they asked to leave and then later invited back?  Because, if we’re allowed to ask family members to leave.  I gotta list you know. Okay not the point.  (But I will be googling this later)  Peyton is lucky enough to be related.. or sorta related to an awesome photographer, so she was able to get some great sweet 16 photos done.

Peyton had never had airbrush make up done before, and so of course we had try that out.  Also because it was like a a million degrees, Texas summers you know.  So airbrush makeup has better staying super powers.   Peyton also has amazing eyes.  We really played those up, and made them pop.   Peyton had so much great hair and she chose great casual loose curls that fit her and the setting so well.

BB VS CC

I’ve been asked a qarter of a billion times about the difference between CC cream and BB cream.  And if they’re even worth it.  Since I’m not above self promotion, I figured I’d explain it on here, so whenever someone asks me- I can just send them right over!

Now, keep in mind that not all brands are created equal.  They don’t all offer the same benefits.  And like all makeup- one size does not fit all.   Your best bet is to try products at stores with good return policies.  Sephora, MAC, Target, and a couple of drug stores will allow returns on used products.  Unfortunately- you have to be your own guinea pig.

With all that said- We’ll start alphabetically

BB Cream.  (Beauty Balm, and occasionally called Blemish Balm) BB Cream is essentially a tinted moisturizer that’s started a new healthier lifestyle.   It contains SPF, and usually skin beneficial antioxidants.  BB Cream is also adds a little more coverage than a regular tinted moisturizer but not enough for fuller coverage foundation.   Although it does contain a certain amount of SPF, it’s generally not a good idea to skip your facial sun screen if you plan on being in the sun at all.  With sunscreen we usually apply it all over the face, neck, ears, and chest.  Due to the actual pigment in a BB cream you’re less likely to apply it to those same areas, leaving them vulnerable to harmful SPF rays.  Because the BB cream is less opaque, you can usually get away with using it over your sun screen on the days you don’t want to actually wear foundation.   Especially now that Summer is just about here.  Its a great alternative to wearing a full face to the pool/beach/lake.

CC Cream (Color Correcting)

The name says it all.  CC Cream usually has all of the same benefits as a BB cream (although usually offers less coverage/pigment) it does focus more on color correcting issues.  CC cream is great for people with dull, red, or skin with dark spots.   CC Cream also focuses more on long term correction.  So not only are you correcting skin discoloration issues immediately, a good CC cream is packed with vitamins and ingredients that can treat and fade skin issues.

Both the CC and BB cream can be used as a sort of skin primer. (under your foundation).

So if you were to ask me which one you should purchase I would have to say “it depends”.

Which it really does. On a daily basis I would use my CC cream under my foundation to help even out my skin tone, and even on days when I’m just around the house -makeup free. I would definitely use the BB cream on those days where you just don’t want a ton of makeup on but you also don’t want to sporting blotchy skin!

I guess what I’m saying is- arm yourself with both!  Do your research on ingredients.  And find which works best for you!

Raven Maven

How do I love Catherine.  Let me count the ways.

It’s not often I meet someone with as dry of a sense of humor as me.  But when I do.  You better believe I hold on to them tight.  Well probably not.  I’m not a touchy person.  But I do like them a whole-whole lot!  And I do.  I really do like me some Catherine.

I loved getting to know Catherine and her family.  They were all so.. sassy.  I love sassy.   SO much so that I got up super early so that I could head out and have Catherine, her mom, and sister ready to go by 9am!  (Crazy as it is, her wedding was on the same day as the wedding I just posted about the other day!)

Catherine has the best dark raven hair.  And just a gorgeous smile.  She chose to do a sleek and classic updo with a smooth bun.  As well as traditional foundation with a gorgeous pink lip.  Check out that dress too.  Love it!

Tweeeelllvee Wedding haiiirs!

That title, my dear friends was in the tune of the 12 days of Christmas.  In honor of our lovely Christine.  The lovely and amazing event planner Barbara with Barbaras Brides sent Christine our way.  I knew right away that Christine was going to be a doll.  Barbara sends me the best clients.  I know I say that a lot about the vendors I work with, and it’s starting to make me think they like me!  I mean, you only want to send your friends the best of the best right?  And that’s Christine.  So very kind.  I met Christine at her makeup trial.  (She had her hair stylist come in from Houston to do her hair).  We spent most of the trial chatting.  It was lovely.  Especially for someone like me.  Who will talk your ear off.  Christine needed us to come out and do hair and makeup for her 8 bridesmaids, 2 moms, and 2 flower girls.  That’s 12 hair.  Almost all of the bridesmaids added on airbrush makeup services as well.  So needless to say, it was a busy day.  But luckily I work with the best team of ladies.  If you’ve worked with me you’ll know my lovely and amazing assistant Chelsea.  If you haven’t worked with me, then you’ve probably worked with Tavia.  She is the right hand lady of LucieMarie.  I brought Tavia along for this group which is a rare treat.  I hardly get to work with Tavia because she’s busy with weddings of her own.

So Chelsea and I worked on all of the hair while Tavia powered through some airbrush makeup.  (with the exception of the bride.  Because I did her trial, I did her makeup on her wedding day).  It was a busy but super easy day.  Everyone loved their looks, and pretty much wanted us to do whatever we wanted.  I was having artistic freedom overload!

Christine chose airbrush makeup for it’s longevity, a natural eye that still “popped” and naturally dramatic lashes.

A super special thanks to Rebel with a Camera for sending me these pictures.  I love not having to bug photographers for pictures!

Katy

Where do I begin with sweet and soo soo pretty Katy?

Let’s begin by mentioning that one of my favorite people and photographers shot this wedding.  Magan with Urban Grey   referred me to Katy a while back.  She always sends me the sweetest of clients so of course I was excited to work with her.  It’s one of those thing where you’re really hoping the trial goes well.  You don’t want your friend to look bad for referring someone who does bad work, and you don’t want someone to think you do bad work!  Stressful all around.

You know what’s not stressful?  Katy.  Katy is a doll.  So stress free, so sweet, and easy going.  I had a lot of fun working with her and her bridesmaids on her wedding day.  I will say though.  That not everything was a peaches and roses.  Peaches and roses.  Is that even right?  Well anyway.  Not everything was dandy.  ( I have this uncontrollable need to use non-boring adjectives.  So I can’t just say, everything was not awesome.. dang it.  SEE?!, awesome would have been perfect.  )  Katy struggles with perfect skin syndrome.  Like  She doesn’t have pores.  Or wrinkles.  Or blemishes.  Her skin is perfect.  Ugh, and her hair.  Shiny.  Who has perfect hair and skin?!  Katy.  That’s who.

For Katy we did her hair in a romantic and timeless updo, airbrush makeup with natural looking lashes.  Her bridesmaids also chose classic updos as well.

On with the show.
