Long Post: Airbrush makeup, my dress, and news

I'll start with my makeup trial. A few ladies wanted to know how airbrush did for acne prone faces. I have to say I'm a huge fan. It felt light, although a little stiff in the beginning, it didn't irritate my skin, covered my scars very well, and it lasted through a whole day of dresses, tailgating, college football, and puppy kisses. My makeup artist also put on fake lashes. They were called "shy" and were really easy to wear without looking too dramatic. I don't wear a lot of make up on a daily basis, so I asked her to give me a look that didn't seem too outlandish for someone like me. I think I want to go a little lighter on the lips, and I also want to see if she can curl the lashes. Although I liked the fake lashes, I feel like my eyes seem more open and wide if I curl my lashes...and felt like the fakes didn't really give me that effect. Otherwise, I think she did a great job. As someone who doesn't normally wear makeup, I'm not difficult to please, so I told her to do whatever.

    Next up is my dress....it fit! Which was a relief. I hadn't gained any weight, but hadn't lost any either like I had planned to. We played with different veils and sash ideas at the dress shop, but I haven't really decided on anything yet. If anyone has opinions, I'm open to them! I'm in love with it and so happy it came in early so I didn't have to worry about it.

    And the last part: news. I got the job I had an interview for! After a phone interview, skype interview, and 4 more in person interviews with everyone from the regional manager to the founder of the company, I got the call today. I'm incredibly excited and grateful. We'll be starting out in Nebraska on a really high note. Unfortunately, because I'll be so busy with work, I'll have to hire a planner to finish up the last details of the wedding, but that's okay...now that I have the extra funds to do it. Which leads me to my last point...I will be deactivating on WW. I've decided that with this job, as well as various other reasons, I need to use my time more constructively, and I don't see WW as constructive anymore. My wedding is almost done being planned and most of the girls I connected with on here are married. So that's it! I'll make one more post about my shower in a couple weeks if anyone is interested, but other than that, I'm on occasional lurker status. Thanks ladies!

    Makeup looks great!! I did individual fake lashes, it added volume and they can be curled for a bit more drama Smiley winking And they're a bit lighter feeling too, if you want to try that route. Your dress is amazing! I love the sash in your picture. And congrats on the new job!!!

    Your makeup looks nice, the eyelashes aren't too overpowering, I didn't like fake lashes for me. Also your dress is beautiful!

    I'm so happy you got the job! It's so cool that before you were really concerned about going to Nebraska but it sounds like you'll be starting out a nice life there doing something you enjoy. Everything happens for a reason!

    Best of luck with your new job, I'm bummed I won't see you around much...but please post a BAM!

    I love your dress. It's one of the prettiest I've seen.

    Congrats on the job, you guys will definitely be starting on a high note. Don't lose that momentum!

    And despite your differences with people on WW (sometimes myself included), I hope you'll come back and do a BAM.

    Thanks ladies! I will post a BAM!

    Ashley: Yes, I will be working in Omaha, he will be working in Lincoln. We're still debating on who should be the one to commute.

    Chantel: Yes definitely! The company I got the job with is actually based in the Tampa area, so I will be back and forth a lot. I will actually be there for a week of training on the 15th!
