Angelina Jolie is Mrs. Brad Pitt

And her gown is absolutely gorgeous! I am not really super crazy about them but I admire them for the way they have set an example to the world on how to love children whether they are biologically yours or not. I just love the way they love their children!

Who could miss the recent news that’s been circulating everywhere about the couple’s sort of secret wedding totally sealing the deal with I do’s. I totally adore Angelina’s gown, not only because it is made by Luigi Massi, the master tailor at Atelier Versace but because Angelina Jolie made sure their kids are also seen in it. Notice those sewed colorful designs on her wedding dress? They are their children’s creations making her wedding dress extra special.

The wedding was said to be very private as only 20 of the couple’s friends and family members were present to witness them exchange vows and celebrate with them. Of course the kids played very important roles in the wedding. Eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10 (who also baked the cake), walked their mom down the aisle; 9 year old Zahara and 6 year old Vivienne tossed petals gathered from the garden as the flower girls; and 8 year-old Shiloh and 6 year-oldKnox served as ring bearers. The kids also helped write their parents’ vows. The wedding was held at he chapel of Château Miraval, the family’s estate in the French village of Correns.

Beginner Makeup Tips and Tricks

I personally love to wear makeup, just a simple one. I have to admit that I cannot leave the house with a bare face. I’d feel so naked if I’ll do. My usual routine is Sunblock cream, BB Cream/liquid foundation, eyebrow (if I have the time), eyeliner and a quick mascara to open my eyes and a lipstick then I’m good to go! I rarely put on some blush.

I know a lot of women doesn’t like to put on some makeup for various reasons (time, lack of skills, skin issues, or they’re just not used to it). Some even think they don’t need it, not for any reason. Of course I respect that. But I truly believe that whether we love to put on some makeup or not, it is important that we have the knowledge how to do it because there will be a point in our lives ladies, that we will have to put on some face colors by ourselves. If you feel that you don’t have the skills and the knowledge to do makeup by themselves, this one is for you.

beginner makeup tips

Makeup can either make you or break you so be sure that when you decide to put some on, at least know the basics. Youtube is a great source I must say! There are tons of tutorials uploaded from the basics to the most awesome and complicated makeup tricks. As much as I am awed with all the talented makeup artists (professional or not) I have this knack for tutorials for the beginners. I always look for a makeup tutorial that is easy to follow and I’m glad I found this simple tutorial by TheMakeupChair. I just love how simple yet detailed the video is. This is just very basic so I hope this will also help you as much as it did help me in getting my makeup done.
