I’ve been trying to plan a party for my bridesmaids for quite some time. Because there are a bajillion of us, it’s been hard to get a time that works for all of us. A friend of mine sells Mary Kay and she doesn’t live in the city, so that was another person to coordinate times with.
But last night the stars (and our schedules) aligned and we were able to all get to my apartment at nearly the same time and have our party. We had chicken, pizza, salad, and screwdrivers. And we had music and good conversation.
But most important was the reason we were there. We were there to sample Mary Kay products. This event was all about skin care. We will get together next month and that will be all about makeup (I think) and then we will get together one more time.
The end result is that each girl will have a color palette for her makeup especially designed for her skin tone and the color of the bridesmaid dress.
If you know someone who sells Mary Kay, by all means, host the bridal makeup party. It’s like playing big girl dress up. And if you live in central Illinois or further north in the state, I can give you the hook-up on a great consultant.

The Kettle ladies vary in their knowledge of makeup, so starting with the basics was a fantastic idea. We learned about skin care and how choosing the right foundation is actually an important part of skin care.

|Personal Photo: BM Law all tuckered out. She’s the old lady in the group. Not in age, but in behavior. I should have juxtaposed this with a picture of Momma Kettle dancing to Michael Jackson music at that same moment.|
The ladies really enjoyed the products and a couple of them bought some stuff. Yay for Mary Kay converts! Next month, we’ll be playing with eye shadow and lip color. I can’t wait!
Did you do anything to prepare your girls for their makeup for the day of the wedding? Are you a Mary Kay fan?
