Ask any military wife what her favorite military event is,
chances are one of the top responses you’ll get is the ball. The ball is so
popular because it’s literally a mandatory date night that generally includes
dinner, dancing, and dressing up… and maybe even some showing off 😉 It’s certainly a great time to get pampered –
after all the ball only comes around once or maybe twice a year. Not to
mention, if you’re a military spouse, you probably don’t get date nights very
As a military wife myself, I have a soft spot in my heart
for helping other spouses get pampered for the night. Last December, I had the opportunity to work
with 3 spouses of Phoenix Recruiting Battalion to get glammed! None of us met prior to the night but it was definitely
a girl’s night to remember. Smokey eyes, red lips, and perfect foundation were
the 3 different looks requested.
My hotel room allowed me the perfect makeup setup. I laid
out all my makeup on the oversized desk and setup my director’s chair and ring
light. The words “this is legit makeup” was the first impression received by
the spouses. When I was told that this wasn’t something they typically do (none
of them had their makeup done for a ball before), I wanted to make their night
super special. By the time we were done, these glamourous gals were ready to say
hello to their man in uniform!
It was certainly a night to remember, and I’m looking
forward to more makeup at the next ball!
