First and foremost, I told you once and I'll say it again.

What good is a lifestyle blog if a gal can't make a point of sending well wishes to some wonderful people?!

So Happy Birthday, big brother! I hope that you have a great, relaxing day :).

As for today's post? I know, I know.

This marks three engagement posts in a row. I promise this will be the last one!

But I couldn't tell you all about our proposal, without telling you about the hair and makeup that went with it :).

I really don't think I could have picked out a trendier outfit to now be forever immortalized in my life history.

I mean, an off the shoulder dress? Tassel Bracelets? Lace-up wedges?

It's just all so on trend!

I really wonder how I'm going to feel about this look by the time the next decade rolls around...

For right now, though? I'm completely diggin' it!

By now, I'm sure you realized that my pretty thing is usually something super feminine. Maybe flowers or a coffee - anything that gives me all of those heart eyes this week.

So did you really expect anything different for this week's pretty thing? :)

Before this night turned into our engagement celebration, all I knew is that this was our first summertime date night.

So I wanted a full-on smokey eye and I really wanted to play with Urban Decay shadows. I was just really feeling the original Naked palette and wanted to play with colors that I don't usually use!

So for this look, I first placed Naked in my crease as the transition shade (a.k.a. the base shade to help all of the other colors blend easier.)

I then used Hustle on the outer half of the lid, Midnight 15 on the inner half, and then a bit of Creep to smoke out the outer V.  I used Strange from the Naked 3 palette on the brow bone and inner corners.

I paired the eyes with bronze skin, glowing cheeks, and my all-time favorite nude lipstick to really make the eyes pop!

Now that we're in full summer mode, I really wanted beachy waves to pair with this look. So these curls are a touch different than my usual go-to style.

For these curls, I used a one-inch curling iron and curled my hair in the traditional way of clamping the hair and rolling upwards. However,  I clamped the hair about one inch up from the bottom, leaving the ends out of the barrel.

It's such a simple change in technique but I love the tousled outcome!

(This is also a reallyyyy good trick for when you need a haircut and want to protect those fragile ends!
