The Place To Be…
This was my first time going to the Matthews Estate White Party in Woodinville WA…but because we had so many clients booking make-up and tanning before I decided that it must be “the place to be”…so I decided to check it out.
(I also have a few recommendations for making it an amazing experience next year when you attend this fabulous event)
Held in late August you are sure to get great weather and it is a fantastic way to say good-bye to the summer time and get ready for fall and “back-to-school”. The Matthews Estate Winery is a beautiful venue and holds an enormous amount of people, so they wont turn anyone away at the door. This is great if you decide to go last minute, but it does mean you will pay more.
- Suggestions #1.) Get your tickets in advance so you don’t have to pay the premium price
It was a little hard to get a drink right when we got there, so that leads me to my next piece of advice.
- Suggestions #2.) But a bottle of wine to share with your friends when you arrive so you don’t spend the first hour in line…and get there early, because the sun sets at around 8pm and it is so pretty it is nice to be there while it is light out
- Suggestion #3.) Have dinner before hand with some friends, and you can have a glass of wine or champagne to start the night then too
The parking lot was an issue although I did get a very nice calf workout walking thru what we all called “The Puyallup Fair” to get to the winery . I managed to keep my shoes in tact and my dress white:)
- Suggestions #4.) Make arrangements for transportation…I am now totally addicted and in love with Uber. Definetly try it out!
We got lots of pictures, had laughs with friends, and listened to music…those were my favorite parts. I will go again next year and make sure to make adjustments to my plan. Now here is my advice on how to look flawless in White!
Advice for looking Flawless in White
1.) Everyone looks better with a little color in their skin. I am not saying you need a deep dark tan, but a little glow is beautiful when you wear white
2.) Get your tan the day before or the morning of the event…if you need to get your tan the day of the White Party make sure to do the “One Hour” Tan with the pH Prep Spray to make sure it looks even and stays flawless after your shower.
3.) Make-up for the event…Airbrush make-up is meant to last all day so you can plan to get your make-up done early like noon or 1pm, then go to your hair appointment, then go home and get dressed…it is much more relaxing getting make-up done early before traffic gets bad and parking becomes an issue in Kirkland
4.) Prepare your skin the day before or the morning of your event. Pluck your eye brows, wax the baby fine facial hair you might have, moisturize your skin and exfoliate lightly to keep it fresh and glowing. Make-up goes on and stays on fresh hydrated skin so much better
5.) Shimmer lotion or spray…make sure your shoulders, collar bones, and shins look glowing with a little body oil, body bling lotion, or shimmer spray added…you will look flawless in photos
