mGa: Getting Beautiful

We did it! 5.10.2014 came and went. It was the most magical, perfect, beautiful day of my life. I've been getting a lot of questions about what my day was like, who my vendors were and what were my favorite parts of the day. I don't want to overload you with details, so once a week {or let's be honest, when life allows - we close on the house we built next week!} I'll be posting about our wedding! 

First up: Getting Beautiful.

Maggie Kerr of Wide Eyed Beauty

I knew that hair and makeup were going to be a huge part of my big day. I needed to feel beautiful and confident. I wanted to look like me, just a better version. I partnered with Gina and Maggie of Wide Eyed Beauty, they are both Ford makeup artists,to make my hair and makeup dreams come true. They 500% exceeded my expectations.  

Maggie Kerr, kindly gave me a list of her must-haves for my bridal look!

-Laura Mercier Primer
-Cle de Peau Concealer
-NARS Pressed Powder {to keep shine down}
-NARS Cordura duo eye shadow {Maggie used about five different shadows, from different brands on me, NARS Cordura is a great one-stop-shop to get a similar less intense look}
-Laura Mercier Crème Liner in Noir
-YSL Waterproof Mascara in Black
-NARS Mata Hari Blush
-NARS Casino Bronzer {I use this everyday!}
-MAC Pearl Cream Colour Base as a highlighter {the best highlighter because there isn't any pink or orange in it like the majority of other brands' highlighters}
-MAC Dervish Lip Pencil
-NARS Sweet Revenge Lip Gloss

I have started wearing the Dervish and Sweet Revenge combo on a daily basis. The lip pencil acts as a stain. It's feminine, beautiful and perfect for work! 

Gina and Maggie provide on-location hair, makeup and manicure services. For pricing, booking and additional information contact them at:

Now that it's over!

Post wedding blues...equate to online shopping while... waiting at the doctors office. Don't worry my nose just decided to swell shut causing my ears to feel like they were exploding, but isn't this case cute? 

I can't wait to share with you details of my big day! Coming soon....

#adamlovesmolly beauty edition


It's hard to believe that we are now in the single digits for the wedding countdown - NINE DAYS.

I found my wedding clutch (it's from GiGi New York and has my new initial on it. A beaded and sparkly clutch wasn't my style and I will use my GiGi clutch forever - plus it has a tassel), rehearsal dinner dress and shoes, jewelry for the wedding, and picked up my dress from the seamstress last night {it is PERFECT}!

A few weeks ago I had my makeup trial. Maggie Kerr of Wide Eyed Beauty could not have created a look that I adore more - it was perfect! I created a Pinterest board for my wedding look and had Maggie and Gina Barrington join it. Here I pinned exactly how I wanted to look: "bronzy, glowy, contoury, with bright cheeks, a natural lip, and a smoky eye that suited me" - totally easy (ha). Maggie nailed it and I felt so beautiful! I'm not ready to share MY look - it's a secret for the big day - but I will walk you through my trial steps and products in my next beauty post!

To contact Gina and Maggie email them at I'm just going to brag about these two for a minute. They work on the beautiful people and when I say beautiful people I mean celebrities and models. Some recents: Anna Wintour, Sophia Bush and Juliette Lewis. Both have most recently worked on looks for shop bop (my favorite store) and Nike!
