ACM Awards Weekend 2015

If you followed along on my Instagram or Snapchat at all this weekend, you might have seen my overboard excited self go to the ACM Awards. Mary Kay was the official beauty sponsor of the ACM Awards and I was so excited to be in Dallas on their behalf. It was such a fun filled weekend! From dinner at the cutest southern joint, Sissy’s to the extremely cool Grange Hall to the celebrities on the red carpet, we hit up Dallas’ hot spots on this #BeautyLovesCountry trip. But first, we enjoyed a makeup lesson and discussion with top makeup artist Luis Casco.
Luis taught us so much! I thought I knew how to apply mascara but I was wrong, I was so wrong. I thought I would share some of the tips I thought were awesome:

Beauty Tips:
–       Use waterproof Mascara over regular mascara to seal the deal. This acts as the curling iron for your lashes!
–       Try using eye shadow primer underneath eyes in addition to eyelids.
–       Use an eye shadow crease brush to apply lipstick! This type of blending brush actually makes for the best lipstick applicator. It helps diffuse a darker color!
–       Use a colored primer underneath specific eye shadow colors for a more 3D effect. Blue with blue, brown with brown, gold with gold, etc.
–       If you like the look of eye shadow lining underneath the eye instead of eyeliner, but hate when it falls on your already done face, here are two tips: 1) do eyes first and finish the rest of your makeup next , 2) simply tap your eye shadow brush to tap away any extra shadow before applying.

Artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Danielle Bradbury and more
had Mary Kay red carpet beauty looks, too! All in all, it was such a great
trip. And all for such a great cause! Mary Kay has teamed up with non-profit LoveIsRespect
to bring the campaign #DontLookAway, creating the first ever dating abuse
texting service that helps over 100,000 young people. Their efforts aid
domestic violence shelter programs, education and prevention. It is such a
worthy cause and I was happy to be part of the campaign.
