For my birthday in February, my sisters got together and gave me a girls day out! They organized a fun little Saturday with brunch and then a makeup class with Brideface.
I had heard of Brideface through several friends who used them for their wedding and all of their reviews were always glowing – and their wedding day faces were too 🙂 I wasn’t sure what to expect from the makeup class but my sisters told me that we would be bringing our own makeup and the ladies of Brideface would be showing us how to use what we have. Great idea!
If any of you are like me, you have several years worth of makeup that goes untouched. I find myself wanting to “switch up my routine” about once a year and perfectly good products go right into my archive basket. I was able to bring ALL of this stuff with me on Saturday and some of it is coming back into the rotation!
The class was awesome – Nancy was our instructor and it was equal parts hilarious and informative. We went through each part of putting your makeup on (brows, eyes, lashes, etc) and talked about what is good for each of our faces while utilizing the products we have. My younger sister is blonde with piercing blue eyes – what Nancy recommended to her was obviously different than what she recommended to my older sister and I – both brunettes with brown eyes.
She even introduced us to new products that you can buy from Walgreens – the best stuff doesn’t always need to be expensive!
Overall, it was the perfect girls day and I HIGHLY recommend doing this for a friend, mom, or sister. For the men readers out there (there are likely 2 of you), this would be a GREAT mother’s day gift for your wife or mom and a couple of her friends! Find out more HERE!
