Did Someone Say Free? Did Someone Say Makeover?!!!

Hey everyone!  I've had a very busy month this last month.  To top it off, I've been sick, sick, sick... Not the usual kind of sick.  It's the good kind, if there is a good kind... We're expecting baby number three this February!  Today begins my second trimester, and I'm hoping that means the end of me getting sick every time I smell spicy food, bend over, or even put my hair in a ponytail (so weird I know).

I recently decided to take time out from kids, schedules, and throw-up to rope Lauren and Susan into one of my beautifying schemes.  Last month, I took pictures of a wedding, and the bride and bridesmaids had their make-up done for free at Clinique in Dillard's.  They all looked great after, and I thought it'd be fun to see how someone else would do my make-up.

Here's some fun pictures from that day.  Also, as you can tell by the pictures, this was right before Lauren delivered her sweet baby boy. :)

And here's a few close-ups after we went home.

In case you're wondering what we thought... Lauren said she wasn't crazy about her eye make-up, and she didn't like that they didn't use under eye concealer.  She didn't hate it though.

Susan thought her make-up was too heavy on her eyes, and would have liked it more if it was lighter.

I didn't like the amount of face make-up they used on me, but I liked the lip gloss (which rubbed off by the time I got home.

Last, my husband took one look at me and said I was scary.... so there's that.

All in all, it was a fun experience, and I had a good afternoon hanging out with my friends.  I might even try it again.  I'll just make sure to wash my face before going home to hubby.  ;)

P.S.  My husband read this before I posted it, and wanted to clarify that he doesn't like face make-up, which is what made me look scary... Would it be totally wrong if I posted a list titled "don't say this to your pregnant wife"?
