Choose your formula wisely. In typical long-lasting lipsticks — think two-sided wands with liquid lip color on one end and a shiny topcoat on the other — silicones in the top coat suck moisture from your lips. Newer, all-in-one formulas fix all that by locking in moisture, leaving behind a more velvety finish with no topcoat needed. For long-lasting results, silicones are still king, but look for formulas with natural oils, aloe, and vitamin E for extra moisturizing power.
The entire Makeup In The 702 family wishes you and all those you hold dear, a 2016 full of health, happiness, adventure and abundance.
The last 12 months have been a whirlwind ride for all of us and we are so excited for what the next year holds for us.

Joe and Laurens story started more than 5 years ago with a chance encounter on the streets of San Francisco and is made up of equal parts metal and magic. Lauren and her best friend took a trip all the way from London to San Francisco to see their all-time favorite band- Faith No More. As chance would have it the girls were standing in line next to Joe and a friend of his, who had also made a long distance adventure out of the concert- traveling from Atlanta. Lauren and Joe hit it off while waiting in line for tickets, the two were inseparable during the show and the rest of the weekend- they even got to meet the band after the concert!!!
They stayed in touch after their journeys back home to London and Atlanta, and it was just a few weeks later before the duo had plans to meet up for another concert in Amsterdam. Over the past 5 years Laura and Joe have taken trips to visit one another and take trips together as often as possible, and in October of 2014 Joe decided it was time to put a ring on it!!!
Lauren, your love story is almost as beautiful as the love you and Joe share. It was an absolute honor to be part of this lovely day. We are so happy for the both of you and wish you a lifetime of rocking adventure.

Danielle and Craig’s story began in the halls of the UNLV Architecture program when they were freshmen in 2004. They were in several classes together and team mates on various projects while they were students and from there a strong friendship grew. The pair stayed in touch via social media, but the magic really began in 2009, when Danielle came back to Las Vegas for a visit.
For their engagement photos, the incredibly talented photographer Chelsea Nicole took the duo and their adorable pit-bull terrier Shadow out to the lake bed and captured some really breathtaking shots.
Because of their shared background in design and architecture they came up with a PERFECT theme for their wedding- “BUILT ON LOVE” with accents of Lego incorporated into the wedding- how clever!!! Craig and Danielle got married in a lovely fall ceremony last month at Legends Ranch, and we cannot wait to see how it all “stacks up”…….sorry, we just had to!!
As the seasons are changing and the temperatures are dropping, the warm sweaters come out and the coffee becomes pumpkin-ized, beautiful pops of color can be found all around Las Vegas too!!! We are talking about the fun pops of pink, red, yellow and orange accents that our beautiful fall bride Lindsey chose to doll her bridesmaids up with.
We met up with Lindsey and her delightful bridesmaids at the Bellagio on the morning of her wedding to start the day off with pampering and primping. These lovely ladies were such a good time!!! There were silly jokes and stories being told, thoughtful champagne toasts being made, and once Lindsey gave her best girlies their thank you gift and a touching heartfelt note- plenty of happy tears.
Once Lindsey and the ladies in her bridal party and family were dolled up and ready to roll, they headed to Canyon Gate Country Club for the excitement to begin. It was at Lindsey and Cody’s wedding ceremony- performed by Angie of Peachy Keen Unions- that we saw one of the most personal and touching wedding traditions to date- a ring warming ceremony. If you’ve never heard of it, you are not alone, but the concept is simple enough- at the beginning of your service, the officiant lets those in attendants know that the wedding rings will be making their way through the guests, with an invitation for each of them to hold the ring, say a silent prayer or set an intention for your new marriage and then pass it on to the next guest. Eventually making it to the couple at the front for the exchanging of the vows.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with this beautiful bride and her fantastic bridesmaids. We wish Lindsey and Cody all the love, happiness and excitement in the world.

Good day mates! Yep, you guessed it we have a story today that takes us from “the lucky country” Australia to the city that was built on luck and good fortune, Las Vegas of course! Today we have the pleasure of introducing you to Stace and Dill who packed thier bags to elope here in the wedding capital of the world! Now, when you are coming all the way from Australia to get hitched in Las Vegas, you know it’s going to be in fine style! Stace and Dill were elopers who somehow convinced their near and dear ones to join them on a (long) trip to Vegas … and on the plane there, told them it was because they were getting married!
Both the bride and groom got ready at Cosmopolitan and chose to do their first look right on the Strip in front of the hotel.
What an amazing idea this elopement was from surprise ceremony at the Neon Museum to the Strip photo tour to end the night.

Like many brides, when we first spoke with Paula about bridal hair and makeup, she shared with us that she wanted a natural and elegant look for her wedding day hair and makeup. Armed with that bit of information, her stylist Crystal, and makeup artist Kiera were able to get right to work creating her perfect look.
Paula and Leshon held their ceremony in the chapel at Canyon Ridge Christian Church. The service was absolutely beautiful, full of personal touches and intimate details. The couple’s niece surprised them with a beautiful song while the bride walked down the aisle. The couple’s nephew also sang a song while they braided the God Knot. The event was full of prayer, singing and plenty of happy happy tears.
Following the ceremony the newlyweds and their bridal party headed over to Floyd Lamb Park for pictures. The incredibly talented photographers from Moxy Studio Photography and Cinema found a lovely, peaceful area overlooking one of the ponds that had beautiful, soft afternoon light. The bride’s bouquet, the boutonnieres and all the floral arrangements were put together by the always impressive Layers of Lovely.
After capturing some lovely moments at the park, the bridal party headed to the reception to get the party started!!! They arrived to the reception that was being held in a family member’s back yard where all their family and friends awaited them. This was the happiest, friendliest and welcoming crowd we have met in a long time. From the moment we met Paula and the lovely ladies in her family and bridal party, to the heartfelt and personal touches in their wedding ceremony- the love and joy shared between Paula, Leshon, their family and friends was so visible and contagious to all who witnessed it.
Congratulations Paula and Leshon!!! Here’s to a life time of happiness and abundance.

Planning a wedding is largely about the details and the logistics whether your planning a small garden event or a destination wedding from abroad working with a professional planner can greatly reduce the anxiety of planning the most exciting day of your life. Today we have the pleasure of introducing you to a vendor we love, Paulina Clute. Originally from New Orleans she now calls Las Vegas her home, her “Mardis Gras” flair is a perfect fit for our city! So without further adieu…..please meet Paulina Clute, of Paulina Clute Events, LLC.
Hey Y’all, I’m Paulina…the ringleader behind Paulina Clute Events, LLC. I first fell in love with the idea of being a wedding planner at 17. I assisted a high-end wedding planner on a huge wedding in New Orleans, where I grew up. I was hooked. Though it took me until last year to officially launch my own business, it’s really always been my passion. Since then, we’ve figured out some great ways of tailoring our services to exactly what our clients are in need of. We offer all customized planning packages. From a full service planning experience, to a day of coordination package, there really is an option to fit everyone’s needs and budget. In this last year, I’ve been privileged to have Makeup in the 702 as part of my vendor team on numerous occasions. On a day where there are so many things to make sure are perfect, it’s a treat to not have to worry about all the girls hair and makeup. The artists will be early, my clients needs will be met, and the end result will be flawless.
What would you like a planning couple to know about your business?
Planning a wedding is an exciting and stressful time for the newly engaged. There are so many avenues to be navigated. Having someone on your side to walk you through the process is invaluable. A lot of couples see a wedding planner as an unnecessary expense or luxury. In my opinion, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Though you may not need/want a wedding planner to be there at every turn, at minimum, a day of coordinator will ensure that all the details you’ve planned out over the last year are executed.
What are the benefits of using your service?
There are so many benefits to hiring a wedding planner or day of coordinator. First of all, if you’ve started the planning process, you know there are a million details. You’ll probably find yourself making tons of phone calls, sending email after email, scheduling appointments and meetings, and worrying if you’re making the right decisions. That all ends once a wedding planner steps in. With our complete wedding planning package, you only call, email, or text me. I handle all of the back and worth communication. The middleman is cut out. Appointments and meetings are scheduled to your convenience….after all, you are the customer. We’re here to give you advice. To help you choose the right photographer to fit your style, the right florist to create the bouquet you’ve always dreamed of, and the perfect DJ for your kind of party. Because this is what we do week in and week out, we know what vendors are going to be best for you. It’s more than just seeing a great photo online and deciding on a photographer. We see behind the scenes. Is this photographer intrusive during the ceremony? How quickly and organized do they get the family and group photos done? Maybe it’s helping you word your invitations because your parents are divorced? Or calling the guest that RSVP’d a plus one, when that wasn’t indicated on the invitation. We’re here to help you at every turn. To make sure the correct song is played when it’s supposed to be. To ensure your new husband has a Jack and Coke in hand. To remind the caterer that Julie at table 5 has a gluten allergy. All the details that you’ve thought about while laying in bed at night, your wedding planner is there to make sure doesn’t get overlooked or forgotten.
It must be quite a challenge to come up with new ideas, Where do you find your inspiration?
After every wedding is wrapped, I sit down and have a meeting with myself. I go over the day. What were the highlights? What worked best? Where can we improve? It really is my last event that inspires to push through and raise the bar for the next one. There is such high I feel when I finally get in my car (at whatever ungodly hour it might be) after a wedding and think, “I just helped make all of their dreams come true! Now let’s do it again, only better!” I also love the fresh ideas being brought to me by my new clients. I love hearing my clients vision, then sitting down and researching how to make it come to life. I’ll find myself laying in bed at night thinking of a creative new floor plan, then next thing you know I’m on my phone pulling up diagrams to see if it will work. It’s so fun to be able to incorporate my past experiences with new clients dreams…and make them come to life!
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers today?
As you begin the wedding planning journey, please don’t forget what it’s all about. Of course, you want this day to be more than you’ve ever dreamed of, to be the best day of your life…but you must remember the reason you’re doing this. The ultimate goal; that is to commit your life to your partner, to begin your life with your soul mate, beyond that, you’re just throwing a great party!
Thank you so much for spending some time with us today Paulina! Please take a moment to visit Puaulina Clute Events online at www.PaulinaCluteEvents.com learn more about the amazing services she provides.
