Today I’m shooting my first ever makeup reel on Instagram for @trestique, so I’m off to get my brows and hair done so I can look my best for the shoot. While I’m still a novice when it comes to makeup, I am so excited to share this tutorial on Instagram (with a post coming next week with more about the products).
For my readers here on the blog, I’ll go ahead and give you a little Saturday morning surprise with early access to my code: AVIDPEN20 for 20% off your order of $30, this new code will also live on my Code page under Shop in case you need to refer back to it later. Be sure to check out the reel dropping on Instagram this afternoon on @theavidpen and I’d love any likes and comments you send my way.
In other news, we’re planning on quite the full weekend with the makeup shoot, more planting (we’ve been working on planting peonies and a hillside of lavender for the past few weeks), a delicious Sunday night dinner at EPIC, and another little photoshoot on Memorial Day. (Fingers crossed!)
What are your plans for the long weekend? Let me know in the comments below.
