West 18th Street Fashion Show

The past few weeks I've been involved with helping my sister, a local designer ( prepare for the West 18th Street Fashion Show in Kansas City. It's been so cool see the process from start to finish, with her proposals and sketches finally becoming realities!

On Saturday, we were able to work with two wonderful companies on hair and makeup for all of the models. Amanda Williams, of Dollface Aesthetics not only did all of the makeup, but applied fantastic fake lashes for all of the models. She also specializes in eyelash extensions which are really popular for brides these days. These extensions are a more permanent solution for eyelashes, lasting around 4 to 6 weeks. Thanks to Amanda for all of her help with the models. Contact her today about make up for your own wedding. I personally love that she's a redhead with fair skin like me, so I won't end up looking like a clown. (Which I did, on my wedding day. After the makeup artist left, I washed my face and started over. Lesson learned? MAKE-UP TRIALS. )

The ladies from Bangs Salon on the Country Club Plaza gave all of the models fabulous runway hair. They were very efficient and these updo's stayed up ALL NIGHT. Also a key factor when you're thinking about your wedding hair. I know at their salon they also have nail services but it's so nice to have vendors come to you when you're preparing for your big day.
