A Real Love Story- Christal and Fields

As every one knows, the Makeup In The 702 LOVES weddings and brides. We get weepy at romantic comedies and some times loose it over love stories. When getting to know the lovely Miss Christal as she planned her hair and makeup look for her wedding, she told us that she and Fields love story involved a chance meeting, long-distance, and a surprise proposal……we were hooked!!! We are so grateful she asked us to be there on her wedding day as she and Fields celebrated their love and even more so that she shared her story with us.

” Fields and Christal met on September 24, 2011 in Las Vegas Nevada at a night club at the Encore hotel called XS. Christal and her family were in Las Vegas for an end of the year bowling league while Fields, along with a bunch of his friends, came to Las Vegas to attend a wedding that never ended up happening. Christal and one of her cousins spotted two good-looking men near the bar and decided to approach them in conversation. Christal and Fields hit it off and had a great time at the night club and decided to exchange phone numbers. After only a couple hours spent at the club, their goodbyes were said. Shortly after, a 4 month friendship via cellphone, emails, and phone calls began to brew. After 4 months of realizing that this “friendship” could potentially be something more special than that, Fields asked Christal if she would be in town for his friend’s police academy graduation back in Las Vegas. Christal, without hesitation, said that she would be able to make it. They met up again in January 2012 and on their second encounter with each other shared that they actually “fell in love” with one another. From there, their story of a wonderful fairytale began.

Fields and Christal started their long distance relationship between Nebraska and California for 1 year and 7 months. In April 2013, Fields was promoted as a Regional Sales Director for GNC and had to transfer to Oklahoma City where the relationship between the two continued. For a total of 3 ½ years, Fields and Christal pursued such a fun-loving relationship together. On December 12, 2014, Fields visited California to spend time with Christal and the two went to the mall because Fields wanted to buy Christal a dress that “so happened” to match Fields’ suit as a birthday present. He decided that he wanted to take Christal to dinner for her “birthday” at the same spot the two enjoyed months before at Orange Hill Restaurant. Towards the end of dinner, Fields stated that he needed to use “the restroom.” Minutes after, Christal’s immediate family and friend started pouring in as Christal was on her cellphone at the dinner table and they started singing “Happy Birthday to you.” Christal was surprised and stunned to see her family and started becoming emotional. Following her immediate family were two of Fields’ friends, one from Arizona and the other from Las Vegas. Then Fields’ parents who he flew in from Nebraska followed behind and Christal started crying even more.



Last person to trail the bunch was Fields with a dozen red roses and a smile that Christal would never forget. Fields handed Christal the flowers, while the crowd was rooting the couple on, he dropped to his knee, stared at Christal’s eyes, and before the big question was popped, Christal yells out with excitement,

“Of course!”

A Real Love Story- Cassidy and Cody

2.11 Blog 1

Cody and Cassidy met through a mutual friend in high school in Westfield, MA. At the time, Cody was a sophomore, and Cassidy was a new freshman. They hung out with the same friends, and had gym class together, but had never formally met. A mutual friend offered to introduce the two one morning, and they started talking almost immediately. A few months later on January 31, 2009, the two agreed to make it official at a friend’s birthday party and they have been together ever since.

Since getting together eight years ago, Cody and Cassidy have grown together. They attended prom twice and were present for each others’ high school and college graduations.

They moved across the country together to start their adult lives in Las Vegas, NV in 2011, and eventually set their own roots in their first apartment in Henderson, NV in 2014. The two began raising a chihuahua puppy named Kahlua together in 2012, who is now 5 years old. They have grown up and found their paths in life together, Cody pursuing a career in Entertainment Engineering, and Cassidy pursuing one in Social Work. To them, this is just the beginning, however.

How he asked- 

1.22 blog 2
On Monday, September 15, 2014, Cody asked Cassidy to go on a date with him after class. They went out to find a nice dress for her 21st birthday, and had dinner at Naked Grill Sushi. Cody turned into Red Rock National Park on what was supposed to be the drive home, and explained that he wanted to take the scenic route home.
He brought Cassidy up to the lookout point where he instructed for her to look through the binoculars at the Las Vegas strip, which was lighting up between the mountains as the sun set. Cassidy heard a snapping noise, and turned around to see what it was, and found Cody on one knee, saying, “Cass, marry me.” She said yes, and the two talked and spent some time watching the sun set before returning home.

Cody and Cassidy got married on their 8 year dating anniversary, on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. Though they have been together for so long, they know that this is only the beginning. They look forward to starting this new chapter together, and celebrating it with their friends and family.

Sending Cassidy and Cody all the love in the world!!!!!

A Real Love Story- Catherine and Ryan

2-3-love-story-2The absolutely  charming Miss Catherine and her hunny Ryan came from Canada to celebrate there love in a classic Las Vegas wedding this past fall. When chatting with her about her wedding day hair and makeup, you could just hear the love and excitement bubbling out of her over the phone. So we asked her to share a bit of her sweet story.

Ryan and Catherine paths had crossed a few times in the past, but neither were looking for love or partnership at the time. It was when they both took a chance that they realized they were perfect for each other.
“Ryan’s aunt and my mom are best friends. 3 years ago they decided they wanted to set us up. We had met briefly at Ryan’s uncles 50th birthday party years prior, but I was still skeptical about going on a “blind date”. Our first date was awkward, we went to Tim Hortons for coffee, and we were both shy. About 30 minutes in Ryan said that he was ready to go. In my head I was like “this is a bad sign” but then he told me he wanted to see me again that weekend. That weekend we fell for each other, and I never believed in finding your “soul mate” but he is my soul mate. Over the past 3 years we moved in together and got 2 dogs. We are the type that can finish each other sentences. In June, Ryan and I and my best friend and her boyfriend went for a walk in Johnston Canyon. After seeing the lower and upper falls, on the walk back down Ryan proposed. It was so exciting to travel to Las Vegas to get married with our family and friends.”
And because what love story isn’t made better by adding an adorable picture of some dapper fur babies!!! These are the doggie gents that help make Catherine and Ryans love a family affair.

A Real Love Story- Ashley and Johnny

When we first chatted with Ashley over the phone last summer, she was just bubbling with love and excitement to celebrate her anniversary with her sweet Johnny. When she told us that they were married when they were just teenagers,  and that their love and devotion to one another has grown over the years we just had to share her sweet story.

My husband and I are traveled to Las Vegas to celebrate our 12 year anniversary and his birthday. Up until our actual anniversary on September 29th, he had no idea where we were even going on the trip. All he knew was he needed to take some time off work. He still didn’t know that once we land in Las Vegas later in the week that we took a helicopter to the Grand Canyon to go white water rafting and that I rented his dream car, a Ferrari Spider, for him to drive while we were in town. Every detail of this trip was a complete surprise for him, including the anniversary photo shoot we’re doing in the Valley of Fire where I have Makeup In The 702 for my hair and makeup services.
love-story-1-13-5I’ve known Johnny since we were kids. He lived in Northern Alabama and I grew up just outside of Memphis, TN, but because of our churches, our families were long time friends. He was actually my long distance “boyfriend” when we were in elementary school and was the first boy to ever give me flowers. Eventually our childhood “romance” fizzled out, but we always sort of kept up with one another. Sometime after I turned 16 my family decided to move to Alabama. Johnny and I reconnected at church one night, exchanged AOL Chat screen names and we’ve been together ever since. He was my saving grace at a time in my life when everything was different from what I had known and helped make my transition to life in Alabama more bearable. He quickly became my best friend and my favorite person. We had been dating for 7 months when he proposed. We were very young (people who know us really well are laughing at that understatement!) when we got engaged and were still young when we married two years later. We got married on September 25, 2004, at just 18 and 19 years old. 😉
love-story-1-13-3We were a very young married couple doing our best to build a life together. We both worked full time jobs while we put ourselves through college. We juggled work responsibilities, studying for college and a new marriage. In the midst of all of that, I decided to pursue a dream of mine and began a small business as a wedding and special event caterer. I say all the time that deciding to get married young is definitely not for everyone or the faint of heart, but I can’t imagine our life any other way. We have literally grown up together and have had each other’s back through it all.
I am rarely at a loss for words, but every time I attempt to express my love and respect for Johnny, the words always seems to allude me. He is one of the hardest working individuals I’ve ever known and has the biggest heart for helping others. I love being his wife and I love the way he loves me!
 These photos are from our 10 year anniversary shoot with Erin Lindsey Images in Huntsville, AL (where I wore my wedding dress for the first time in 10 years!).

To put it mildly, this year has been absolute dynamite for the Makeup In The 702 family. Just sitting down to make the list of our accomplishments in 2016, and it’s hard for me to wrap my head around the amount of growth and evolution that has happened in the last 365 days.

12-30-nye-6 In the first quarter the makeup artist and hair stylist received their 1000 review on Wedding Wire. This award and recognition is HUGE for our team. It is a direct testament, in the words of our clients, that every day Makeup In The 702 and our team strive to provide 5 star service.

12-30-nye-5    12-30-nye-3

12-30-nye-1We were so delighted to represent some seriously big league, international cosmetic and beauty brands at their conventions here in Las Vegas. The incredible guidance and education on beauty, skin care and over all health that we were able to take part in has already made a significant impact in the ways we serve our clients.






Even typing that I got goose bumps, so I’m going to do it again WE OPENED UP A STUDIO!!!! After more than 10 years in the business, providing our services 100% on location, we finally have a place to call home (and what the hubby is most excited about- a place to store all of our gear)!!

Stay tuned for more exciting news on the Makeup In The 702 Studio and announcements on upcoming events in the space.

From new trainings, incredible partnerships and collaborations, photo shoots, rebranding, awards and recognitions, like i said, its hard for us to really grasp all the wonderful things that have come to be this year!!!

While beauty and makeup with always and forever remain my favorite parts of a wedding, cake (and really any thing yummy for that matter) comes in a VERY close second place. Here’s a round up of some of the loveliest and most scrumptious looking cakes we’ve come across lately.

 We can’t get over how whimsical and stunning this simple cake is with the help of colorful pompoms.
Can we all agree this is one phenomenal cake? All the marvelous layers of different shades of pink are having us do double takes.
A soft texture on the base layer of this cake and the multitoned flowers are the perfect amount of detail to make this a beautiful dessert without going over the top.
This beauty is practically blooming with pink petals and flecks of gold detail that are both timeless and tasteful.

Rose Gold Makeup That is Almost Too Pretty to Wear

December 16, 2016

Comments Closed

This article originally appeared at Glamour by Julianne Carell.

Rose gold: You’ve seen it everywhere. All over your Instagram feed, in the hair of your favorite celebrities, in the home section at Target; heck, it’s even the color of your iPhone and MacBook. Nope. It’s not trendy or anything is the biggest understatement of 2016. And you better bet the gorgeously flattering color is coming for your makeup next. For fall, it’s popping up in highlighters, nail polishes, eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, and more. Obviously, we couldn’t be more stoked.

12-16-rose-1Laura Mercier Face Illuminator in Indiscretion, $44

At first glance, this looks like frozen yogurt swirled into a makeup compact. But once you get over the hesitation to touch it (it’s too pretty!), you’ll be glad you did—you’ll end up looking like the diffused, glowy-skinned girl of your dreams.

12-16-rose-2Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow in Recharged, $22

The best part about this rose gold glitter is that it comes in liquid form—meaning wherever you choose to put it, it won’t budge. For hours. It’ll look particularly magical in the inner corner of your eyes, layered on top of your existing shadow, or alongside the wing of your cat-eye liner.

12-16-rose-3Huda Beauty Textured Shadows Palette Rose-Gold Edition, $65

This is the dreamiest eye shadow palette we’ve seen since Urban Decay Naked Smoky. And trust us, the photo does not give the sparkliness of it justice. Our favorite combination? Layer Rose Gold on top of Henna for the prettiest smoky eye ever.

12-16-rose-4RMS Beauty Nail Polish in Solar, $15

We can’t think of a skin tone this wouldn’t look amazing on. Plus, the 6-free, vegan formula means it’s safe for your fingers and the animals.🐰 Win-win.

12-16-rose-5NARS Hardwired Eyeshadow in Outer Limits, $25

Sure, this eyeshadow might look like New Year’s Eve in a pan (not the most practical for everyday…) but once you touch it, you’ll see just how well the color blends out for lower-intensity looks.

12-16-rose-6Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Lip Topper in Skinny Dip, $16

This “lip topper” is like lip gloss but better—it’s pigmented as hell, stays on forever, and wearing it looks like you just drank pure unicorn water.

12-16-rose-7Algenist Reveal Concentrated Luminizing Drops in Rosé, $38

A highlighter with skin care benefits? Yesss. This one prevents wrinkles and revives dull-looking skin at the same time.

12-16-rose-8ColourPop Eyeliner in Get Paid, $5

Not sure if rose gold is your thing? This eyeliner costs $5, so you won’t break the bank figuring it out.

12-16-rose-9Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder Radiant Finish, $56

Here’s another too-stunning-to-ruin powder to fantasize over. And if you decide to take the plunge on it, it comes with a cute kabuki brush to help you do the job.

12-16-rose-10Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom Lip Color in Barely Bloomed, $7.49

The trick to pulling off rose gold lipstick? A little goes a long way. Dab it in the center of your everyday nude or pink to make your lips look slightly more plump.

Winter Weather Makeup Tips for When Your Skin Is Super Dry

December 9, 2016

Comments Closed

Article can be found in its original form, here at Teen Vogue by Alyse Whitney.


 Prep your skin at night

Starting with moisturized skin is like keeping your car oiled — it’ll be easier to run foundation over it when you get ready. Powerful masks like GlamGlow’s ThirstyMud or celeb fave Wilma Schumann Hydra-Gel Red Wine Treatment Masques provide deep, intense hydration with nourishing ingredients. Use them once a week and see how much your face needs it.12-2-winter-beauty-2

Wash your face with gentle ingredients

Another skin care prep comes from washing your face every day. Go for something gentle, like La Roche-Posay Micellar Solution — which removes makeup, tones, and cleanses without rinsing or letting water dry out your skin — or First Aid Beauty’s Milk Oil Conditioning Cleanser, which removes makeup and dirt while smoothing skin with avocado and coconut oil.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

The last step before grabbing your makeup is obviously using a great moisturizer. Makeup artist Suzy Gerstein suggests looking for “products with moisturizing and anti-inflammatory ingredients to combat the flakiness and irritation that characterize winter skin.” If you have oily skin, try a gel product, like First Aid Beauty’s Skin Rescue Mattifying Gel that absorbs immediately and minimizes pores. If you have combination or super-dry skin, try Skyn Iceland’s Arctic Hydrating Balm that uses cryogenic technology from the Arctic to repair and moisturize skin. No matter what you use, just make sure it’s absorbed before you start putting makeup on.

It’s prime time12-2-winter-beatuy-5

You don’t need a primer if you’ve followed all of the above steps, but it doesn’t hurt. You can combine lotion and primer with Lush’s Magical Moringa lotion that has argan and rose hip oils, or go for the glow with the whipped, pearl-filled lightweight Becca Backlight Priming Filter. The point is to get an even canvas for your makeup, something you can also achieve by adding drops of Cover FX’s Custom Cover Drops to your favorite moisturizer. Two birds, one stone.

Opt for lightweight coverage

When your skin changes, it’s a guess and check system to see what works for you. Suzy suggest working in thin layers and seeing what the skin needs, like a few drops of face oil (or even almond oil) in your foundation. You should “experiment with different products, and see how your skin absorbs them throughout the day,” whether it’s a CC cream like Jane Iredale’s Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer that gives your skin a soft-focus effect while locking in moisture and calming redness, Tarte’s BB cream that has a built-in primer and up to 12 hours of staying power, or your own foundation that you sheer out a bit with a tinted moisturizer.

Keep your smile happy, too12-2-winter-beauty-3

OK, we don’t mean your teeth, but it’s important to exfoliate your lips to get rid of all of the dry, dead skin so you can wear gorgeous lipstick. The Santa Lip Scrub from Lush tastes like chicka-cherry cola (remember Savage Garden, guys?) and its slight red tint will go perfectly with a bombshell red lipstick. We love the Red Door Red from Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick line, which seals in moisture and makes your lips look fuller and plumper — even in the winter.

When your lips get dry and you’re out having fun, don’t touch up with lipstick! “If you’ve done a bold matte lip for a night out, rather than touch up with the lipstick you’ve used, which can start to feel dry and yucky as the night goes on, throw a tinted lip balm into your bag in a bright shade and touch up with that instead,” Suzy suggests.

Don’t go overboard on other makeup12-2-winter-beatuy-4

With your skin so sensitive and dry, it’s better to ease up on product use in the winter. A little blush or bronzer on your cheeks will do, but really, the rosy redness from the cold weather will go a long way naturally. Focus on your eyes, using waterproof mascara like Benefit’s Roller Lash to make ‘em pop while not crying black tears from the wind hitting your face, strong brows, and a simple eyeshadow like just one shade from your Naked palette.

Set it, but don’t forget it

Using a setting spray is always the perfect finish, but take it one step further when you’re trying to hydrate with Jane Iredale’s Pommist Hydration Spray, packed with pomegranate and white tea leaf extracts, or Urban Decay’s cult-favorite Chill Cooling and Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray. Now your makeup won’t budge, and your skin will stay fresh all day… until you repeat the process all over again.

Suzy also suggests filling a rollerball with virgin, cold-press coconut or argan oil to roll over the cheeks and any dry patches for quick touch-ups. Sigh, is it spring again yet?
