You guys how sassy is Instagram LIVE? I’m LOVING it. Valentine’s Day we broke down a date night look & then Thursday we did a live Q&A while Kelsey & Shawn did my make-up & hair.

So now I’m going to share the EXACT make-up products + how to use them.

The real secret to great make-up? A great base. Stay hydrateddrink your collagen, use face and eye masks & moisturize with oils. I also LOVE to use my ice roller before doing makeup to help de-puff my face. Taking care of your skin is crucial for prevention.

With that, let’s dive right into make-up:

PREP:

{ PRIME }

+ Slather face & neck with rosehip oil & caffeine sunscreen

ROSEHIP OIL

If you follow along on Snapchat, you already know this oil is A MUST. Rosehip oil helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, eye bags, fine lines & more. Studies have shown that it can also help to reverse the adverse effects of prolonged sun exposure. Need I say more?

CAFFEINE SUNSCREEN

I’m obsessed with a good caffeinated sunscreen ( << been using this everyday, every second lately because the caffeine tightens …

Well hello.

Welcome to our wedding PART 1. I can assure you there are a lot of photos so this might be a four part-ish series. I figured the best day to kick this off was the day of love, NO?

Since I’m a detail freak I want to be sure I share a bunch of them with you guys.

Here’s PART 1. A BREAKDOWN of the pre-wedding set up.

The day started with me very much hungover. You could definitely have guessed that if you read about my blackout, diva moment.

Basically I woke up looking like Sloth from The Goonies because I was SWOLLEN! Immediately I called down to the spa & they sent up a sheet mask…which THANK GOD for because BOY DID I NEED IT.

If you know me you know when I wear a mask, I commit. So this mask did not come off my face for hours. Unfortunately I forgot my trusty steel ice roller…UGH. So before makeup started, I proceeded to stick my face in a bowl of ice ( what up ICE FACIAL ).

The whole thing was very efficient because the swelling definitely went down.

For the beginning, the vibe …

You could say I’m late on picking a wedding band but what the hell else is new?

To be honest I left the whole ring thing to the last-minute. Before leaving for Cabo, I ended up buying a “wedding band” at a drugstore as a place holder, & rocked it for 2 months! I figured it was time to put some effort into my wedding ring…

Thankfully, Jared the Galleria of Jewelry invited me to tour their store so I was able to get really hands on with the whole thing…and let’s face it, you guys know I love to get hands on.

After playing around and styling their wedding bands, I compiled three easy tips for the non-traditional bride, super simple & to the point.

Ready? K:

3 NON-TRADITIONAL WEDDING BAND TIPS:

GET YOUR VIBE RIGHT:

Vibe is muy importante. Do you hear? Everyone is different. Your wedding band should reflect your style. For me, I feel like my engagement ring is VERY me so I don’t want to overwhelm it with too much for the wedding band.

In fact, I thought on very simple terms when picking the wedding band. Jared the Galleria of Jewelry had a …
