    So I never wear makeup. I dont even own one piece of makeup. Ive thought about trying it from time to time, but my hair takes so long to do (so thick!) that I couldnt imagine spending more time getting ready. LOL

    Anyways, so I figured more than likely I probably wouldnt do wedding makeup. Well my FI's cousin is starting her own business doing facials, waxing, makeup, etc. She also loves wedding planning and is trying to branch off into those services to.

    Well my FI designed her business website to help her get going, and she wants to do a favor back by doing my wedding makeup. Ive seen her work on herself, and weddings shes done in the last year and they always look good. Shes coming to the wedding (obviously) so I figured why not. You only get married once right? (Shes also going to be my day of coordinator, and has been so helpful in the planning. Double bonus!)

    So last night we did the trial makeup. It was so weird seeing me with makeup on. At first I was like woah.....I dont know what I think. My FI was hestitant at first, but when I put my glasses back on he said he liked it. By the end of the night he said he was getting use to the different look and loved it. Yay :)

    I think I really loved it myself. I thought my eyes looked great, especially wearing glasses you want them to pop behind them. The rest I thought maybe was a little much, like maybe Id like it a little bit lighter.....but after a few hours I really did love it. We went out to meet friends after that, and everyone said how great it looked. Some even said they would of did more smoky eyes.

    So tell me what you think....

    Try not to mind my crooked glasses, they need an adjustment badly.

      WOW, MELISSA!!!

      You look beautiful! I love the way she did your eye make-up so that they "pop", your skin looks like it is absolutely glowing, and the little splash of just the right color on your lips finishes the pretty picture! (Oh, and I know how frustrating it can be to have bent glasses, too, but I hardly noticed because you just look so great underneath them!)

      Give your cousin a big hug, a high-five, and tell her she is on the right career track because if your wedding trial make-up is any indication, she is in the right field!

      Congratulations

        The make-up looks great on you! I think she did an excellent job and didn't try to do anything drastic since you don't normally wear make-up, the colors are great!

            Looks great. Maybe you could blow your hair out the day before to save time?

              I think it looks great. Do you have a no-makeup photo so we can do a comparison? It looks very natural and I think will be beautiful on your wedding day. I don't even think it looks like you are wearing much make-up .... natural beauty!!!

                    Melissa, I think it looks so great!! I would totally do that look for the wedding. Really beautiful! Maybe start wearing some make up so you get used to it & feel like you look more like yourself on the big day. It's just your natural beauty enhanced! :)

                    I went to Sephora to get a smokey eye makeover the other day & the make up artist said not to worry about it looking like too much. She said to keep in mind that deeper rich colors really won't look over done in photos b/c you want your eyes to pop & with the flash (& even in natural light) a deeper smokey eye will look better.

                      it looks awesome on you!!!! The only thing is I love your freckles and they all disappeared when you got the make up on. But really natural and looks fantastic!
