I’m definitely not your go to beauty person, at all, period. Don’t ask me how to contour, or how to find the perfect red lip and don’t dare ask me to put make up on your face. While in Dallas over the weekend, we got all glammed up before the ACM’s at ERA Salon. The hair was perfection (which I am loving and will have my girl Rachel help recreate for you in an upcoming hair post) but the makeup, the makeup was life changing. I don’t really ever wear a ton of makeup. Maybe some tinted moisturizer, little blush, touch of bronzer and mascara. I don’t think I’ve ever lined my lips properly, done my eyebrows or put on the perfect cat eye. I’ve most definitely tried, but it never works and I never feel STUNNING.

I got some amazing tips this weekend that I’ll be applying to my morning routine. Like making myself have badass eyebrows. Or a pouty Kylie Jenner wannabe lip. And yes, this whole look was done in Mary Kay cosmetics by the gorgeous Mariela who made me feel so beautiful. I snagged this lip liner and lipstick to touch up my look throughout the night and may be my new signature lip. It wore very well and survived lots of eating and drinking throughout the day and into the late hours of the night.

I you didn’t catch my first look for the weekend, check out yesterday’s post as well as all the important work that Mary Kay is doing with the #DontLookAway campaign.  If you or someone you know are a victim of domestic abuse text LoveIs to 22522.

    You look gorgeous! I never know how to put on makeup either – whenever I have it professionally done (like all of 3 times) I always find it amazing that it looks so good. Then I get home and I’m like wait… how did she do that? I love the cateye look on you!
