Look :: Mary Kay Makeover!



Outfit details: Shirt - Salvation Army. Shorts - Ann Taylor. Sandals - Target. Watch - Michael Kors. Lace flower - Forever 21.





Yes, I just showed you another photo of me without makeup... and a photo of me with more makeup than I normally wear. I can't help but admit that I was pretty self-conscious about putting these out for the world to judge, and now I'm feeling even more self-conscious because I just got all vulnerable on you. At least now you know that I'm normal and not super confident 100% of the time.

It's more like 92%.

Anyway, I recently had the pleasure of attending a Mary Kay glamour event! As you've gathered, I'm not normally a makeup gal, but maybe that's beginning to change as I'm starting to experiment a bit. At any rate, I couldn't pass up the chance to hang with gorgeous ladies in a room decorated with pink! And I loved learning from my girl Brittany. I mean, this was my first time wearing lip liner and eyebrow pencil! Can you believe it? I'm all grown up... almost.

Other fine females in attendance were Evette, Alana, Toryn, Maria, Gina, and Glenna, who helped take a whole bunch of these photos. ♥














After a day of pampering, I couldn't help but indulge in leftover pizza and cheap wine at home. Welcome to my life... it's a good one!

  2. Get out of here with this! I'm actually in training to be a Mary Kay consultant right now and ordering my starter kit this weekend! (Such a small world). You have to let me know how you like the company since so many people seem to bash it all of the time.

  8. Koodos to you for posting these before and after photo's, you have great skin without all that make up so I don't know what you were worried about!

  9. Looks like lots of fun! I haven't been to one of those things in years.
    I find the camera really likes a lot of makeup. You wouldn't believe how much I cake on before a photo. But in real life it looks weird. Youre so pretty and young you really don't need to wear much more than lipgloss and mascara to look beautiful!

  10. :D I used to be a Mary Kay consultant! They have the nice, fancy gear though. Those director chairs XD
    Those chicks go allll out, but sometimes a little lipliner is a good thing!
    Ps, I'm JEALOUS of your sandal weather!!

  13. I'm not a big fan of make up either...I like some eyeshadow, mascara and blush but I'm not a big fan of foundation. Though back in September I had a "make-over" by MAC so I started shyly to waer foundation every now and then (always at night, never during the day)! And lately I was sent to try on a BB-cream by Garnier which is pretty good actually because it gives a nice illumination on my face plus a uniform color.
    So yeah, I like your makeover, but it's not easy to apply it to your everyday routine especially if you're not used to wear lots of make up!!

  14. Wow your make up looks amazing!! I went to a Mary Kay event when I was younger and I HATED the way they did my make up. I seem to have a hard time finding places where I actually end up liking the way they do my make up.

  15. I love makeovers. I had one done by Dior in the Fall, and I had the best time! It's a great way to bond with girlfriends and try new things.

  17. How fun. You look beautiful to me with or without make up.

  18. You look gorgeous Steph! But I think you look gorgeous always. It really is fun to play around with makeup from time to time. I used to be more adventurous but now I just use the same three products every day. I've never used a lip liner or an eyebrow pencil so it would be a first for me too! Like your Mama, I love the hot facial expressions, and like Jude, I'm totally jealous that you're able to whip the sandals out already!! XO

  24. This. Was. AWESOME. And I adore you.

    1.) I think it's great that you shared the before picture, and regardless of your words just being willing to publish a picture of yourself you're insecure about (although have no reason to be because you're gorgeous) knocks that percentage of yours up a whole bunch. In short, you should be proud of your rockin self.

    2.) You look lovely with the make-up on! Even I don't wear lip liner and eyebrow pencil! I wear eyeshadow on my eyebrows and I just go to town with a tube of lipstick, all we-don't-need-no-stinkin'-liner style. But this is so charming and so profesh.

    3.) The event looks like it was so much fun. I've never been to a Mary Kay event - or really anything beauty-related at all. Isn't that sad?

    4.) You had me at Cabernet Sauvignon.

  25. Love this, you did a great job and as a sister consultant to me I say you rocked everything, great job, you look great this page is amazing, very good inspiration for a struggling consultant such as myself who is keeping her head high inspite of the obstacles. Thanks for the encouragement.
