If you're anything like me, you've been trying to figure out how much makeup you need to look pretty, without looking like a... er... heavily makeup-ed gal. Pinterest, YouTube, you name it, we've tried it, but it's missing something.

Do you know how many "smokey eye" tutorials I have watched? And still, I end up looking like a fairy punched me in both of my eyes. (You know, black and blue, but still sparkly.)

I have an answer for this, AND the "nothing to do in Grand Junction" dilemma. Girls' Makeup Night. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a Mary Kay party. No one is trying to sell you product. You BYOM (Bring Your Own Makeup) to the party and an actual expert shows you what's up.

Meet Abigail, owner of Abigail Holmes Artistry, in Grand Junction. Abigail studied beauty in Los Angeles, focusing specifically on makeup for special effects, period looks, bridal, editorial, and film. Her clients literally span the country from Seattle to Miami.

Abigail is doing group makeup classes, and she'll even come to you! If you are having a bachelorette party, girl's night out, or just want to hang out and drink wine while you look amazing, this is YOUR thing. Here are a couple of before and after photos from a party she did:

I'll be honest, every time I hear about something like this, I'm sure that I can't afford it. Not the case here, friends. If you have a small group of ladies that want a fun, girly get-together, Abigail will come to you for only $20 per person. Seriously. That's it.
