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.

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.

As the temperatures drop and we start to pull out the long sweaters and warm boots, it’s also a good time to take a look at our beauty routine to make sure we are getting the most of your efforts. You know my mantra! “Good skin and good color go hand in hand!”
Here are a few tips on keeping staying fabulous and bursting those winter blues.
Drinking plenty of water is a go-to piece of advice all year long for those of us living in this beautiful Las Vegas desert, but it is also so important for everyone else who has a bit more humidity. During the winter months the hot showers, cold winds and dry air can leave our hands and lips chapped and cracked. Of course popper moisturizing is necessary; by staying hydrated you are addressing the problem from the inside out.
This winter you will be seeing lots of pretty peach and coral tones on the cheeks. Obviously the color of your blush will depend on your natural completion, but go for more pink and peachy tons over gold’s or bronze. During the winter months it is totally normal for our com
Stick to SPF
This one might also sound like a summer skincare tip, but it is so important to continue the protection into the winter. The dark clouds and gloomy days can lead us to drop our guard a bit during the winter months, but sun burn and sun blistering can be quite common for those enjoying the outdoors in the low temps. Protect your hands and face from the suns harsh rays by applying a moisturizer with at least 20 SPF every single day.
pletions to be lighter or a bit paler, so don’t fight the winter and embrace the rosy cheeks.
Pamper your locks
Hot steamy showers, dry hot indoor air and static cling can wreak havoc on your mane, and can leave your hair dry, brittle and frizzy in the winter. Even shampooing with the wrong product can strip your hair of moisture. This season, go light on the washing try to skip a wash every now and then. Since big, waves and tousled tresses are making a big comeback this season, it’s a perfect opportunity to give your hair a break.
Chic Top Knot
Quick, Easy, and Glamorous! This effortless up do is a winter beauty staple. Because it only requires a pony holder and a few bobby pins, its casual enough to be worn with jeans and a chunky scarf. But it’s also perfect for statement earrings or a sparkly headband because it is so elegantly simple. Whether you jazz it up or dress it down, be sure to incorporate the top knot this season.
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!!
Taking a little side step from weddings this week it is our pleasure to introduce you to fashion photographer Richard Julio.
Welcome Richard! To get started can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your experience working with Makeup In The 702?
“I am a nationally published fashion and portrait photographer based in Las Vegas Nevada, specializing in both commercial fashion and professional headshots for models, actors and corporate professionals. As a fashion photographer, I need to be able to rely on my entire team to be prepared for anything. My friends at Makeup in the 702 are always prepared for anything and can pull off whatever I or my client needs. Working with other professionals also allows me to bounce ideas around to see what will work and what may not, having that experience to tap is key when on the job.”
What would you like potential client know about working with you?
“For any client I always recommend planning out your photo shoot. The best place to start is by asking these questions. What clothes are you going to wear? Will you need to buy anything, if so when and will you have it in time for the shoot? What types of shots do I want to photographer to definitely get?”
What are some of the misconceptions about your service?
“Lots of people nowadays think you can Photoshop anything. To some degree that is true, but the tradeoff is that fixing some things in post-production doesn’t look as good as getting it right in camera. How can a client be prepared, simple things like making sure clothes are ironed ahead of time and getting a good night’s rest before hand can really make a big difference so that you avoid looking tired with bags under your eyes. Professional hair and makeup styling is worth the investment as well. Having a professional makeup stylist that can blend, contour and cover up blemishes in invaluable in photography. In addition, a professionally done hair style will last longer and have more versatility throughout your shoot. When hair is properly dried, smoothed, or set; it has memory. That curl, volume, or sleekness will fall right back into place after clothing changes or action poses, or be able to easily be switched into a completely different look quickly. All these things are a great way to look your best and get the most out of your photos.”
What are the benefits of using your service?
“I work hard to produce high end images that look ready to be published in a magazine. That means you get stunning images and tailored customer service to fit your needs.”
Where do you find your inspiration?
“I find inspiration in many different genres of art such as movies, music, theater, painting, other types of photography etc. Most of my focus however is on the fashion industry, following what trends are popular or up and coming is important as a fashion photographer.”
Thank you so much for spending some time with us today and sharing your insights with us.
We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into Richard’s world please take a moment to visit him online and discover the world of fashion photography through his lens.
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.
