Hey, darlings! Guess what we did last weekend! It was so fun, I’m not even over it yet! Bride and Breakfast and Colgate Optic White had its Beauty Workshop, the second leg of the Beauty and the Bride series. It was held in HD Makeup Studio and Academy, the perfect venue to talk all things beauty. We were so happy because all of our brides and besties took time on a Sunday to discuss weddings and beauty preps for the big day. Seeing the radiant brides with their bright smiles made our event worth it! The best part was the free makeup, hair, and beauty stations–I mean, who wouldn’t love that? Our venue was small and intimate, which also made it so much easier to get to know our brides and their besties.
Thanks to Passion Cooks, our venue was made even more beautiful! Their red and white flower arrangements and decorations brightened up the venue for our very special brides-to-be. The backdrop was just amazing! We couldn’t help but fall in love!
From learning about skincare from Dra. Kaycee Reyes of Luminisce, to talking about the different makeup and hair styles for your wedding day from Jasmine Mendiola, our day was nothing but productive! Not only did our brides get to ask them different questions during the Q&A portion, they even got to ask more personal questions during their one-on-one sessions with Dra. Kaycee and Jasmine! Let’s just say they made great use of their time with our speakers!
The best part was our beauty workshop after. Every bride loves free hair and makeup sessions, and thanks to MAC Cosmetics and Blo Blow Dry Bar, our brides got just that. We had foundation matching, eyebrow and mascara, and lip stations to make our brides and their besties look extra special and to learn a thing or two from the MAC Cosmetics makeup artists. They were able to find out their perfect shades and colors to match their natural and glowing beauty. They also got a great do, too! Blo Blow Dry Bar was there to give our brides a great hairstyle to match their makeup look.
Sunkissed Collective and Woodstock Cinema totally captured how G R E A T our day went! All our brides had so much fun talking with our photographers and videographers that everyone became instant friends. Woohoo
After their hair and makeup sessions, they got one-on-one beauty tips from Jasmine, skincare tips from Dra. Kaycee and photo posing tips from Sunkissed Collective. They even got portraits taken as a bonus! All our brides and their besties gave us their biggest and brightest smiles!
Passion Cooks sure whipped up such delicious treats for everyone! Honestly, I couldn’t stop nibbling on their Wild Mushroom Vol-Au-Vent, Ham and Cheese Quiche Lorainne, and Chicken Tortilla Cones! What gave it an extra kick was the Crème Brulee and Cream Cheese Espresso Brownies! It gave us even more energy for an activity-filled afternoon! Nom nom!
Thanks to our partners, our brides and besties went home with a really great goodie bag! They got tokens from Colgate Optic White, MAC Cosmetics, Blo Blow Dry Bar and Luminisce. Another addition to this was the beauty and skincare checklist from Dra. Kaycee and Jasmine! They gave some tips on what to do to take care of your face, and a checklist of what to do and not to do before the wedding day. I think our brides hit the jackpot with these giveaways! Don’t you think? Everyone’s smile was from ear to ear! Job well done!
Just like our Fashion workshop, we had another Instagram contest! Our glowing brides posted a photo of themselves, their besties or their favorite activity on Instagram with the hashtag #BeautyAndTheBride and #BNBxColgateOpticWhite, and five lucky winners were able to take home special prizes! The goodies for these brides and besties were never ending!
We were so happy to see how our brides got so kilig over the workshop! Getting dolled up is always fun for us ladies, right? It was a fulfilling day indeed! It’s always so wonderful getting to know more brides and their besties, hearing their stories about wedding preps and even knowing more about them. It was also another excuse to bond and hang out with our event partners, who were a big help making our brides shine and smile even brighter than usual! I’m so excited for our next workshop! You ladies should be too! Don’t forget to sign up for Beauty and the Bride: The Fitness Workshop happening on October 15, 2016 (Saturday). I just can’t wait to meet our next batch of brides and besties! This time, we’re getting down and dirty… with sweat!
