Bridal Diaries, Jenny

I met Jenny at the Williamsbrides event in February and we hit it off! For her trial we did a makeup lesson and wedding trial in one. Jenny was married at the same venue where I had this wedding styled photoshoot, remember? Congrats David and Jenny!

Isn’t this dress amazing!?

NEW Face Chart!

NEW FACE CHART Feb 8 2013Face Chart Feb 8 2013 pink star NEW FACE CHART

OLD Face Chart Feb 6 2013 pink star burst

Can you spot the differences? I changed the Lindsey Jones Makeup Artistry logo and moved it down to the right. I also changed my font from Trade Gothic LT Std (Like Shu’s) to Geosans Light which you can get for free here (thanks Pugly Pixel)! I also put more social media action onto the bottom of the chart. And instead of using a vertical bar | to separate my info, I decided to go with two forward slashes instead // (which I could have sworn I used to see a lot on Nowness). Face drawn by my favorite graphic designer, Tabitha Emma. As far as functionality goes, I changed the Lips section to just “Lips:” because I found that I just didn’t need that much space. Also, I found that I was highlighting and contouring a lot more so I gave myself two different lines for that. I used to have the name and date at the bottom, but that made it very difficult to find in my files!  So this time I didn’t put “Name & Date” with a line, but rather just left space at the top. That way I can write whatever I desire, whether it be a designer’s name and shoot date or a brides name and her wedding date. I’ve already started using the chart for my first two bridal makeup trials of 2013 and it was so refreshing to see a new, fresh and functional layout!

Look + Listen, Lovers!

valentines day calendar with heath 14th

With Valentine’s Day less than two weeks away, I hope you’re getting into serious preparation mode! Here’s a little timeline to help you stay on track for your Lover’s Renzevous… and remember, nothing feels better than planning for outrageous confidence and sexual prowess!

NOW // Book all beauty appointments and make restaurant reservations. Consider where you and your lover would like to dine! If you need help deciding, Yelp is a great resource. If you’re going to cook for your lover, consider trying out the recipe ahead of time so you’re feeling confident the day of. Also, do you have a cute apron? Hottie in the kitchen!

10 DAYS // Research and shopping phase. At 10 days you’ve left plenty of time to find that perfect Valentines date night outfit AND lingerie (please don’t leave this part out). Consider what the weather will be like, what nail polish color you’ll rock, hair style, makeup and everything else that makes you feel super-duper-hot.

ONE WEEK // Facial. One week leaves your face adequate time to heal so that you don’t have any peely skin or post-facial breakouts. But not so soon that you’ll lose that post facial glowiness. See Elena Rubin for the best facial in NYC.

2 DAYS // Brazilian, Brows… heck, let’s keep it real- BODY WAXING. Again, need to leave yourself a couple of days to heal if there is any skin irritation but not so far out that you’ll have little in-growns or new growth. See Marta at Haven for the best Brazilian.

1 DAY // Mani/ Pedi. Fresh, fresh, fresh.
