For my best friend’s wedding last weekend, I decided to save some money and do my own makeup. I needed to get a little something for my eyebrows (safe to say my relationship with my eyebrows is long and complicated and merits its own post), so I popped over to the MAC counter to grab some tinted brow gel (as recommended by a friend after she saw what I did to my face with an eyebrow pencil). Where I totally spent twice as much on makeup I didn’t know I needed as I would have spent getting my makeup done by a professional. BUT. The brow gel is amazing and I’m finding that I much prefer it to the eyebrow pencil I didn’t know how to use properly. Definitely recommend it if you need a little eyebrow relationship therapy. As for how my DIY makeup turned out at the wedding, I’d say it turned out good enough, and that my exceptionally voluminous updo distracted from any sort of blemishes I might have missed. Plus, let’s get real: no one’s looking at the bridesmaids.

I don’t even know what I’d do with this, but a sticky note made of tracing paper sounds like something I should probably have around.

This chandelier is almost an Anthropologie parody, but I kind of love it.
