Lindsay + Hal

Hello MYD Beauties,

copy-of-0002-lindsay_hal-copy

Lindsay and Hal said I do with a touch of sophistication and lot of romance. With the timeless The Umstead as the setting, it wasn’t hard to immediately fall in love with the  wedding day. We loved Lindsay’s big romantic curls and elegant gown. The touch of silver in the bridesmaids dresses and white flowers gave their wedding the perfect amount of sophistication. Did we mention the ice cream? How could you not fall in love over the perfect ending, a Mr. & Mrs. ice cream cone!

Megan S and Valentina did a great job on the brides hair and makeup, and the bridesmaids looked great with the help of Dee and Kelsi!

Did Somebody Say Pool Party?! 

Hey MYD Beauties!

I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for pool parties, the beach, & laying out getting that nice summer tan!

First off, I want to start by saying obviously you don’t have to wear makeup to the pool or beach. If you’re comfortable not wearing any that’s awesome! Let your skin breathe! However, I personally just feel a little more comfortable with a little something on. Obviously you don’t need a full face of makeup at the pool, so here is my favorite go to makeup look for any pool party or beach trip with friends! Even if you’re not wearing makeup sunscreen is super important!! This is a must for anybody that’s going out in the sun. It should be apart of you’re morning skincare routine, but especially if you’re planning on being in the sun all day!


My go to is a BB cream or tinted moisturizer.  This is a great way to hydrate your skin and add a small amount of coverage. It shouldn’t be a thick, cakey layer of foundation. Just a very light weight, sheer coverage, hydrating moisturizer! I will also add a small amount of bronzer on my cheeks and the frame of my face. Also, a little bit of highlight on the tops of my cheekbones! For both the bronzer and highlighter I prefer a cream product in the summer just because it will last a lot longer! I keep the eyes very simple… just a coat of waterproof mascara!

This look literally takes me five minutes and is great for the summer! It’s the perfect amount of makeup for the “no makeup” makeup look.

XOXO, Caitlynn

MYD Wedding: Rachel | The Jefferson Inn Southern Pines

Hello MYD Beauties,

copy-of-wdgb-069

A storybook wedding is the best way to describe Rachel’s wedding day at The Jefferson Inn. We love Rachel’s effortless makeup and hair, how beautiful are her blue eyes? The pops of purple pair perfectly with the white and green floral accents. The wedding cake is every little girls dream, we all remember craving our first initials in a tree. Top this wedding day off with burgers and french fries and we are officially in love.

St. Patty’s Day Inspired Emerald Green Smokey Eye

Hello MYDBeauties!

I was totally inspired to do something green in celebration of the upcoming holiday. This smokey emerald green look is perfect for a night out. This look works well on people with deep brown eyes, but feel free to get creative! I prepped my skin with Dermalogica active moist moisturizer & Laura Mercier oil free primer before using MAC studio fix foundation set with La Mer translucent powder. 

img_6780

For the eyes I prepped with MAC Soft Ochre painpot. In the crease I used a combination of MAC Soft Brown, Haux and Sable. All over the lid I used MAC Bottle Green, and placed Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow in Mermaid on the center of the lid. I then tightlined my eyes with Makeup Forever waterproof black eyeliner and used a good coat of IT cosmetics superhero mascara on the lashes. 

I used Nars Deepthroat on as my blush, Makeup Forever pro-bronze fusion to warm things up and Becca Champagne pop to highlight. For lips I used MAC boldly bare & MAC Modesty. 

Let me know if this look inspired you for your holiday festivities! Until next time!

XoXo,

Dee
