This Saturday, August 20th, I had a good reason to have shaky hands during a makeup session, I maquillais my sister! One time charge of emotion in my child's room, with his background beautiful wedding dress! My sister agreed to share the photos with us on the blog these moments in beauty and I am very grateful, given its discretion.
After spending the morning at Geneva manicure and haircut for our buns (see articles and tutorials here and here ), we had a little (not much!) late and had very very hot ... It was a day heat wave, but what chance have the sunshine after 2 weeks of this weather. Fortunately, we had a rehearsal makeup a few days before, which allowed us, despite the pressure to spend all this time rather more relaxed manner.

Make-up for 5 years my best friends for their wedding, I was rather surprised that this year my sister asked me to make up for his. Because it seemed to me never really convinced in the past by my prowess makeup too pronounced and not enough natural. This is true, it goes back to our homes when we were students and I liked the straw at the time. Radical change of register this time: with the wedding, I had no room for error! After some experimentation carried on pink and brown colors, she chose a very soft makeup in gray, who put her beautiful and big brown eyes in value.

I probed some Swiss bloggers so they can recommend a nice but mostly pro place in Geneva. Unfortunately, although there are a plethora of micro institutes in Switzerland, there is really no nail bars can accommodate several people at the same time (ie my sister and her two witnesses) in the heart of Geneva, in a modern minimum and offering quality service.
Lees Executive Institute that seem out of the 80s and believe draw pictures with their ultra vulgar claws, it does not inspire confidence in me. Based on their website that stood out, we went to Swiss Nail Spa, located in the city center in front of the Time.
We all chose the three New York Express manicure including exfoliation, lotion, cuticle care, filing and nail polish (OPI or Essie) for 45 CHF. The price is very competitive, the work was very neat and friendly welcome. While the place is not very nice or very large (the term "SPA" is an exaggeration chouilla) even if an effort is made to make it nice and pretty.
I chose this day for a raspberry colors of OPI (Baguette Me Not) and my sister chose a French manicure for a few extra francs.
