My First Wedding!

I did my first wedding!! Hooray! I was invited to help with the make-up for my friend Amy's wedding. I did the make-up for (4) bridesmaids. She had her wedding at a really neat bed and breakfast up in Idyllwild. It was so beautiful up there that day! There was such wonder and sparkles in the air! What a special day! And I was priveleged enough to be a part of it! I felt so special being able to be there and amidst all of the excited hopeful emotions. This day marked my hope for me becoming a make-up artist. I can't express how filled with joy I was to help out! It was so much fun and I was able to make people feel comfortable and to beautify them for such a special day! I had an absolute blast!! You know the feeling when you get when you start to see the Christmas decorations come into the stores? And you know that Christmas is approaching, with all of it's wonderful lights and everyone's spirit is filled with vibrant vitality? That was how I felt when I drove back home! I knew then that this was definitely something that I want to pursue and is something that I just love to do. ♥

Below are the Before's and After's of the (4) bridesmaids that I was privileged enough to beautify! ♥ The awesome graphics are designed by my hubby! (The photos have not been re-finished or re-touched.) Please leave a comment and tell me what you think!!




Tauna is also a model! Check out her Myspace page:

Tauna was awesome and wrote a blurb for my blog:

"Jodi is such a sweetheart! She does amazing work and is very professional. She came up to Idyllwild on relatively short notice to do makeup for 4 bridesmaids with only a couple of hours to do it in. Everyone looked great and the bride loved the natural looks that Jodi gave us. Having had my makeup done by plenty of Makeup Artists being a model, Jodi does an excellent job. She has a gentle touch and a great personality that you're sure to get along with." - Tauna Carson

Have a wonderful night filled with blessings & joy!

Let's have some fun ♥

I was playing around and trying out a look that I am going to do on my friend tomorrow. I might change a few things for her....but we'll see. I'm going to take pictures of her when I'm done so I will be posting pix.

Have a great Friday!

Hugs & Kisses,

Funky :o)

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day so far! And I hope that you enjoy our AWESOME 3-day Labor day weekend! <3

Okay, on Wednesday night, Matt stayed home from work because he had an awful migrane that put him down for the count. I stayed home from our Church's pot luck to be with him. When it got later, I decided to play with my make-up and see what I come up with. My intentions was to do the nautral eye look with the pop of bright red lips. Well.....below is what came out. It became an icy look. I have a lot of highlighter on my cheeks, chin, nose and forehead. I have a ton of white eyeliner underneath my eye that it actually coated my lashes...which looked super cool. Matt took pics of me and the look somewhat came through to the camera. It's different and I totally like it! Remember, this was at the end of the day and my foundation was a day old. Lol. But it worked! :D

Eyes: Natural-skin color, very soft shimmery eyeshadow
Thin black eyeliner line with a small thicker wing
White eyeliner- a ton! Inside my eyelid & underneath and pulled down a little and out to the black wing (triangle)
Silver glitter eyeliner on bottom lash line
Thick black mascara but only on the top lashes

Cheeks: Bronzer for contouring
Soft pinkish/brownish color on top & apples
Lots of highlighter on cheek bones

Lips: Icy light purple lipstick
White eyeshadow
Glossy light pinky/frosty lip gloss
Silve glitter eye liner around the lips to outline (not sure if I like that or not! looked cool in person though.
