Invisalign Update: 1 Year Appointment

Yesterday, March 3, was the last day of my initial treatment of Invisalign! I went to my orthodontist and had my teeth scanned for refinements. I will get those trays in six weeks. Here are my before-and-after photos.

Lower teeth

Upper teeth

I had a lot done in the last year!

I started Invisalign on February 28, 2013, had a septoplasty on April 8, 2013, and then on July 23, 2013 I had two dental implants placed. I changed my trays weekly and had 13 attachments. I did not use Acceledent or have the corticotomy surgery.

After I finish with my refinements I will have my teeth whitened, have the two crowns placed on the dental implants, and have the upper central incisor re-crowned. I will also get retainers.

I am so thrilled with where my teeth are at and can't wait to see when they are finally done!

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks for reading!

Current Favorite: Hot Pink Lips

I have been loving hot pink lips for about a year now. I love the way they pop with a neutral eye and give you an extra fun twist on a daily makeup look. Check out some of my favorites!

Colors from left to right are:

Milani Color Statement Lip Liner 05 "Haute Pink"
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm 220 "Showy"
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm 205 "Elusive"
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain 001 "Honey Douce"
Milani Lipstick 14 "Rose Hip"
Maybelline The Elixir 075 "Fuchsia Flourish"
MAC Amplified Lipstick "Girl About Town"
Maybelline Volume Seduction Lip Gloss in "Proud Pink"
Maybelline Vivds Lipstick in 870 "Shocking Coral"
NYX Butter Gloss BLG01 "Strawberry Parfait"
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss LG160 "Tea Rose"

Some of the colors aren't very opaque. The Revlon Kissable in Honey Douce is a very light mauvy-pink that goes well by itself. The NYX "Tea Rose" gloss works well over Revlon "Elusive".
My top three favorites of this group are the Milani lip liner, Milani lipstick, and the MAC lipstick. The Milani lip liner is great for an all over lip color with a light gloss on top. It stays on really well throughout the day but I usually have to freshen it after eating. I'm wearing it here:

Here is "Girl About Town"

So if you want to try something new this spring and summer find a fun hot pink lip stick and rock it out, girl!
