We had a very busy weekend back in Hendo and Ashevegas (Hendersonville and Asheville for the uninitiated). My makeup trial was Saturday and my bridal shower was Sunday. First of all, the shower.
My aunt and my mom went over board on the shower of course. It was a beautiful shower and it was really great to see everyone. The highlight of the day was the card from my cousins, Allyson and Brent. Brent, who is a famous artist, designed the card.
It says, “Regarding your human matrimony: Congratulate!.” The inside says, “Matrimate!” Everyone’s gifts were more than generous though and we got a lot of great stuff for our apartment. The one thing I did not enjoy was the fact that I was sitting in the middle of the room with an audience.
That made me very uncomfortable and I didn’t quite know what to do. I also couldn’t hear people very well, which was embarrassing. It was a really great day overall though.
The day before was my makeup trial. I went to a place in Asheville that does airbrush makeup. I told the woman there that I wanted pretty natural eyes with red lips. When I didn’t like the first result, they toned it down from there. This was the result.
The eyes aren’t exactly natural. I’d like just a bit of liquid liner instead of what she did, which was put on the liquid liner then spend 10 minutes putting black powder over it. Hopefully it will turn out well for the wedding since I’ve already paid for it.
