It’s not every day that I get my makeup done by a renowned stylist and makeup artist (among other talents!) like William Squire of Your Signature Style. And in my own backyard with wine and lively chit-chat among friends and family!
With less than a week to go before we set sail on Crystal Cruises, William stopped by to do a little practice run on my face before our presentation aboard the ship. (He’s got the tough job, lol … I just have to sit there and get pretty). During our voyage, William will be giving a series of lectures covering style and makeup in film and beyond. In honor of this cruises’s Film and Theatre Festival theme: DORIS DAY (!), he will be recreating Ms. Day’s Pillow Talk period make up … on me! He’s already given me some wonderful tips, and this personal session in the natural light of our back yard also gave our daughter Julia a chance to assist the pro. Julia lives and breathes all things makeup and aspires to be a makeup artist. She was in her element! I can’t wait to perform my tribute show, It’s Magic! The Life & Music of Doris Day aboard the ship! And what a lucky girl am I, that William will be on hand for a little once-over at half-hour.
Joining us for our little makeup fete was good friend and Entertainment Manager for Crystal Cruises, Christopher Escamilla. Husband Loren took the pics and poured the wine
Can I just say how much I enjoyed being pampered?
Not only did William leave me looking positively stunning, he also left me and all my girls gift bags with his brand new AMAZING lip gloss, Billy’s Brilliance! Not only is it the perfect shade for all skin tones (just a hint of color with a light shimmer), it’s the perfect consistency and it LASTS! 🙂 The really cool thing (not apparent in the below pic) is that the top is also a mirror, so you can check your pretty pout when you’re all done applying!
Billy’s Brilliance is William’s latest addition to his growing makup line. I’m already obsessed with Billy’s Blues!!
So I’m doing really well with my packing for our 12 days at sea. I’ve got my mascara and lip gloss ready to go… Only about 114 other things left!
