Weddings, debuts and proms

I grew up in the UK and didn’t have my own debutante ball or go to a prom. I had a house party when I turned 18 (I think) while my parents went out on a date to avoid the noise…Wait that was my 16th. So many years ago! Proms were always so “American teen-like” to me. So “Beverly Hills 90210″ (the original show)…So..’Pretty in Pink’ :)

At my old high school and sixth form college, we had a ‘Dance’ with a DJ once a year, and got to show up in our “clubbing” clothes, have some soft drinks, crisps (chips) and awkwardly hung out with the chaperoning teachers.… Click here to read more

Wedding Season – Summer updates

Is it really already the end of July? Can we have a couple more months (or 10) of summer, please?

Summer started with a big bang for us as we moved into our new house! (Twitter @MakeupbyMerry and IG @MsMerryB followers have been able to see the renovations and makeovers as they’ve happened). So, the big move is over and I wish I could say all the unpacking is done, but there are still a couple of boxes sitting around.

D.I.Y. Prom Makeup – Checklist

1) Start Taking care of your skin with a regular Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize and weekly treatment (masks/scrubs) regime, if you haven’t already done so.

2) With healthier Skin, less makeup and a flawless look will be easier and quicker to achieve! Don’t forget to drink water whenever you’re thirsty (or better yet, take sips before you even get thirsty, coz by then, you’re already dehydrated!)and wear sun block daily.… Click here to read more

Prom Makeup – TV Segment

HELLO everyone!  I’m loving the sunshine! :)

Yesterday, I was stuck in traffic en route to Rogers TV (a collision on Yorkmills Rd held many commuters up during morning rush hour. Hope no one was hurt!) and just made it a few minutes late to call time. As I was setting up, news came in that the show had a couple of last-minute(!) guest cancellations.  Daytime Toronto being a LIVE show -the team quickly started throwing in ideas for how to fill the sudden segment gaps. The show must go on and all that, and may I say, they pulled it together and produced a pretty darn good one :)

Guess who got roped in?… Click here to read more
