McKenzie's Inspiartion Shoot

McKenzie is wonderfully talented and crafty, and she is also on trend with the latest and greatest beauty tricks.  Looking over her latest "inspiration photo-shoot," I knew that  McKenzie was not only a woman to call on for event planning, but also someone who could style a Bride, or a model for a gorgeous look!  I wanted to get McKenzie's take on her favorite beauty products, here's the scoop:

Kira:  What look, or who is inspiring you right now?

McKenzie:   Leighton Meester (as herself and Blair Waldorf) - Gossip Girl is my "Cheetos on TV" - pure fluff with no nutritional value. Leighton Meester carries herself with class on and off the show, and always has that sweet yet smart look too her, plus her handbags, shoes and hair are to die for!

Kira:  No matter what, you always have this in your makeup bag:

McKenzie:   MAC lipgloss. I have at least 20 tubes, almost all of them in the same color - they're in my makeup bags, my car, my desk, coffee table, bedside table, suitcase, everywhere. I love the color of Little Vi, I love the texture, consistency, the fact that it doesn't have much scent. The way it matches my skin tone. It's the best!

Kira:  What is your fave new beauty product?

McKenzie:   My favorite new beauty product... I borrowed some Love and Toast lotion from a friend and I am a convert! I am in absolute adoration of Honey Coconut hand cream and eau de perfume. It's my new signature scent!

Kira:  What is an essential part of your beauty routine?

McKenzie:  The most essential part of my beauty routine is a toner/moisturizer double punch. After being introduced to Lush toner, I am a forever fan!

Kira:  Let's hear more about your event planning - Where or what was the most exciting event you've "worked," and what made it  so  awesome?

McKenzie:  To date, the most exciting event I've worked has been a wedding at Gale Woods - the community of family of friends coming together to set up, the pure joy on the faces of the bride and groom, and the World's Greatest Polka Band playing = incredible.

McKenzie:   My favorite part about being in the wedding industry is helping brides and grooms create a day that really is a reflection of them - typically through custom details like decor and paper goods, and helping them find vendors that they love, leaving the couple to enjoy their big day completely.

  2. The traditional weddings look wonderful. We will also be marrying in next year and want to have a fusion wedding (traditional+modern). First of all will reserve one of most suitable New York wedding venues for that. Do you have any ideas for the décor, please share here.
