Friendship Friday: Ms. Meagan G.

Friday, July 18, 2014 Permalink 0

Holy Wedding Season.  Wedding Season is in full swing and my lovely friend Meagan was invited to a wedding and wanted to get herself some Girl Get Glamorous hair and makeup.  I was in!

Meagan and I met and became friends doing stand up together.  Not only is she very funny and very pretty and a very good friend to me, but her hair also holds a curl from a hot roller like nobody’s business.  Meagan is my living doll, folks.  She’s my doll!

We discussed a Brigitte Bardot inspired look and I promptly plugged in my hot rollers.  That’s right.  We were about to hot roller the heck out of that hair.  Dreams do come true.

I blew her hair dry using Living Proof Full styling cream.  Then after it was dry, I sprayed Suave Keratin infusion dry shampoo throughout, to give it extra grip and volume.  At the crown, where I really wanted the volume to be huge, I added a bit of Bumble and Bumble Pret-A-Powder to give crazy texture and hold.  True happiness is big hair.

I scrunched all the powders into her hair and got those hot rollers ready.  I hit her roots one more time with the hair dryer, just to really make sure the dry shampoos absorbed before putting in the rollers.  Then it was Hot Roller Heaven!  I got Meagan’s hair all curled up in the rollers, then let them sit while we started makeup.

For skin, I used Chanel Lumiere foundation in shade 20, Clair.  It’s a long lasting matte foundation that doesn’t look flat on the skin.  Matte felt right with the look, but I still wanted Meagan’s skin to look fresh and last all night.

A cat eye feels essential to the Bardot look, but I wanted to add a little color punch to it.  Sometimes a cat eye feels too “daytime” and this wedding was at night.   I decided to do a contoured beige and brown eyeshadow look with the cat eye, and big lashes! I lined the inside of her eyes with L’Oreal Silkissime eyeliner in Black and Highlighter at the inner corners.  For the precise cat eye, I used the Lorac Front of The Line eyeliner, which has an ultra fine tip.  Perfect for neat-looking cat eyes.

For cheeks we went with a soft peach, I used Too Faced Sweethearts blush in “Peach Beach” (full review HERE).  I have used this blush on so many different people and it looks so flawless on everyone.  It’s one of my favorite, favorite blushes.  I contoured with my It Cosmetics “My Sculpted Face” palette, using the lightest contouring shade.

The lips were also LUXE.  We used some fancy makeup!  I used my Tom Ford lipstick in Abandon, a perfect soft peach.  I probably should be greedier with this lipstick, because it’s one of the fanciest things I own, but I knew the peach would be perfect with Meagan’s skin.

With the makeup finished, it was time to take the hot rollers out and they did not disappoint!  I teased the crown so it would stay up all night and finished with Elnett hairspray and a drop of oil for shine.  I loved the finished look, it feels very Brigitte Bardot meets Michelle Pfeiffer!

Yes, I know this is the 3rd pic of this hair.  But I can't handle it.
