Mari and Derrick got married! And I am so grateful that Mari asked me to do her hair and makeup for the big day. She is my very best friend and I have used her face for practice for so many years. In the last 10 years, I can't tell you how many times she has said "bug, can you do my eyes?" as we were getting ready together. :) Thanks for the practice Mar!
For the makeup we used Belletto Studio airbrush foundation and it really did stay all day. We did a little bit of touchups right before her ceremony, but her foundation stayed on so well. I credit this to not only good makeup, but I LOVE Final Seal by Ben Nye. This is a finishing spray and it will hold your makeup on all day. I spray a fine mist on when the entire face is complete. It is a must-have for brides, but I use it on myself any time I have put a of work into my makeup and need it to really last. I also like Model in a Bottle and Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray-but nothing as much as Final Seal.

It was the most perfect day! It could not have gone smoother and I was so happy to be a part of it. Mari and Derrick were smiling from ear to ear all day and it was so much fun to watch.
