Make up and hair

Recommended Posts

In my opinion the dress is one part of the look but you have to add in make up and hair that will make the look/day. I, like many brides, want to look like a million bucks on my wedding day. I do not want to look like "every day me" but " classic, fancy, beautiful me".


First, I have dirty blond hair (which I'll highlight to add depth), blue eyes and porcelain skin. That's a nice way of saying pale with rosy cheeks. I do tan a bit but I've avoided tanning beds and over exposure to the sun over the last few years. I will, however, be going to the tanning bad to get a glow before heading off to Italy. I am only doing this to get a little color so I will not burn when we get to Italy and are in the sun everyday. I will continue to wear my 30 spf sunscreen and sunglasses.


Anyway, here are my hair and make up inspirations. I like pink and mauve lip colors and I want to make my blue eyes pop, going to do a smoky eye. Since I know only how to do my "everyday" make up, I will be going to Sephora in April to get a lesson, application and buy the goods. I will of course practice and post trial pics.


I am not doing my own hair, I booked an appointment for that at a local salon. I am excited about that because it is only a block from my hotel. Please keep in mind, I am not staying at a resort. There seems to be more resort weddings in Mexico and the Caribbean.
