Our Eyes Show Our Age....The Limbal Ring

I recently read a article from Allure Magazine,  What Is Your Face Telling the World? .  The article is about how quickly people judge others and form opinions about them in a matter of seconds. It shows the significance a first impression makes. Is it right that people make these quick judgments? I say no, but apparently, we all do it. Reason enough to visit The Juicy Beauty Word for your beauty tips, right? Anyway, the thing in the article that caught my eye, was the visibility of the limbal ring.  What is the limbal ring? The limbal ring is the dark circle around the colored part (the iris) of the eye.

Spring Bridal Makeup at Normandy Farm

Photo by Danielle Coons Saturday, May 2, was an absolutely beautiful day for a wedding at Normandy Farm in Blue Bell, Pa! The color theme was purple. The makeup style w as a dramatic smokey eye with an understated lip. The bride chose a plumy smokey eye and a nude pink lip.  Fiber lash extensions made everyone's lashes long and gorgeous! The bridesmaid's smokey shadow choices were pink and gray or gray green or purple. I did all three shadow combinations and did mostly a pink nude lip. I used a peachy lip on the bridesmaid who chose the gray green smokey eye which complemented her red hair nicely. Blush was soft rosy pink with a touch of luminizer. Bronzer was kept to a minimum on their beautiful light skin.  The bride wore her hair down and softly curled with the front pulled back in a poof. The bridesmaids wore side swept ponytails that were softly curled. They all looked fabulous! Here are a few photos: Photo by
