So for such an important day, I knew I couldn't chance it. I love doing my own make up and I know what colors and applications look best on me. Plus, I have experience applying make up for professional pictures. I did my own for our engagement pics and our recent bridal session.
So I figured I should probably practice before the big day and last weekend I did just that. Needless to say, I'm super happy with the results!
Because I LOVE all of you little lambs SO much, I'm going to put up a picture of me with no make up. Please, do not be afraid. I rarely go out of the house looking like this (and trust me, I'm not fishing for compliments, I know I look like shit without make up).
I must really effing love you guys. So not cute.
And here is the end result! ::drum roll please::
I'm a new woman!
I took this one on my computer after I added a bit more eyeshadow.
Not the best quality picture, but this was easier to do than use my point and shoot.
Close up. I'll do it a touch darker on W day.
Again, from the computer, but the colors showed up nicely.
I'll probably add a bit more blush, but other than that I'm totally happy with how it turned out. I'll also have one of my bridesmaids carry my make up bag with me in case I need to touch up (which I'm sure I will).
Do you guys want me to do a post about the products I used an a little tutorial? If you're interested let me know, I'm happy to write one up.
Are you doing any beauty DIY for your wedding day or are you leaving it to the professionals?
