    Hey Tonir,

    I am also fair-complected, with blond hair and blue eyes. I tanned prior to our trip since we traveled in January, the dead of winter, when I am the palest :)

    I also desired a natural look, but one that could make my eyes "pop" on my big day and also enhanced my natural coloring (hair, eyes, and skin). When looking for makeup tips for the type of location/climate conditions we were marrying in I found many sources suggesting brides to AVOID the shimmery makeup for eyes and face, as in wedding day photos outside brides can look oily/sweaty. Of course, I didn't want to go for a sweaty/oily look but rather a polished but 'naturally done-up' look.

    I went with a matte contouring palette (I don't typically contour my eyes w/ my everyday look but since I wanted my eyes to pop I went with a subtly-contoured look). I used a matte silver/gray on the lid, a matte charcoal (black would've been too dramatic for my coloring), and a matte white-ish color to highlight the inner corners of my eyes & my brow bones.

    I also opted for fake lashes from Sally Beauty supply & in their store they provide a helpful pamphlet that guides you through selecting the right lash length, thickness, shape, etc. for the look you wish to achieve. I was really pleased with the outcome on my wedding day, and I also chose to do my own makeup since this was what I was most comfortable with. If you would like to see a photo, just message me or email me at jennalynn544@hotmail.com & I can try to find one to post for you.

    HTH somewhat :)
    I absolutely LOVE my life & ADORE my little family :)

            Hello everyone!

            I am trying to plan my hair and make up for my big day this coming May. I am fair complected and have blond hair/blue eyes. I generally see a lot of ideas out there for darker complected ladies. I did find some ideas for both my hair and make up. I also like my hair up but my fiance likes it down, I found some compromises to make us both happy. Here they are...

            Make up:

Are you Italian?

                  i love the posted pics. I am still undecided on how i want my hair done; i do know for sure i want it up. i have my hair up 80 percent of the time and when it is down it is down to start with but up by then end of the day/night.

                    Simplnsweet- I am Italian-American. My dad is from Italy and so is my fiance's dad. I am from Palana, IT (Abbruzzi) and my fiance's dad is from Luca, IT (Tuscana). We are not beach people so that is why we thought of a European destination vice Mexico or Caribbean. We chose a location that we thought was beautiful and was not where we are from. I am booking this site unseen but I am so excited about everything. I just booked my hair appointment at a salon right up the street from my hotel. I have also talked to people who have been to Positano and no one has said anything bad. That makes me more excited about it all.

                    About the hair, I wear my hair up when I am home or on weekends. Its only down to go to work. I hate hair in my face so the half up-do works best. I also think it is a romantic look. I have to be careful with make up because I am fair but I definitely want to play up my baby-blues. I also have full lips and with my fair skin, I mostly weare mauve and more pink lip glosses so I don't look like a hooker. I know ladies with more olive skin can wear darker lip colors and it looks great. Again, yes, I am Italian but my mom is of Dutch descent so I got all of her genes when it came to my skin color, hair and eyes.
