Wedding is right around the corner and I had my hair and makeup trial today. I was thrilled with the results! I actually liked my hair better than my inspiration pics– so a definite win. I also really liked the makeup although it looks weird to me to wear so much because I don’t often wear makeup anymore. I’m wondering if the eyeliner/falsies are a little “too much” but my mom and bridesmaid said they didn’t think so via the pics.
Please excuse the outfit and the over-the-shoulder-in-the-mirror shot for the back of my hair 🙂

You look beautiful, the make up is perfect. If I’m being 100% honest though make sure that on the day of the wedding, the top of your hair is a little more even. You look great though!

Oh how gorgeous! I think it looks amazing. to me the lashes are a little long but thats just my opinion, you look great!

Yay! You look great!
When I have worn fake eyelashes I usually wanna take them off within the hour. I have found that the smaller individual lashes that you can apply are much more manageable. Especially if you arent used to wearing them.

You look awesome! So pretty, and I love love the hair!
To be totally honest though i’m not loving the lashes, but I don’t like fake lashes on anyone so yeah. It looks like they’re making funny shadows on your cheeks….

@kingytobe: you’re totally right. i did notice that when she was done but i didn’t care enough to make her fix it for today 🙂 I think i’m going to have her do the whole top a little bit higher.
re: the lashes… the choices are not these lashes or none. There is a “less dramatic” option that I’m thinking of taking. I figured I’d go for the more dramatic today and see if I wanted less, vs. getting the less and wondering if i’d want more on my wedding day. I like how they look from a distance, but when you look close (like the first pic) I feel like they’re a bit startling.

The hair and makeup is stunning – but I second the lesser lash look. They look good with your eyes open, but closed or from the side are really going to stick out & look quite noticeable. You look gorgeous!!

You look breathtaking!!! I love the color on your lids, I have similar skin tone, what color is it as your eyeshadow??

i love it!!
the only thing i find with lashes is the the inside ones drive me insane, so i cut them so that they cover the outer 3/4 of the eye.. but they look beautiful on you:)

@NYshoppingirl: I’m not sure what color the eyeshadow is because I had it done by a makeup artist do it. I know it was mac brand and it looked like a dark bronze in the container but it went on a bit lighter.

@corgitales – How exciting that your big day is just around the corner! You look very natural and beautiful. The only thing that I’d consider adjusting is the length of the lashes. You don’t want to have shadows under your eyes because of the silly lashes, eh?! Enjoy the rest of the planning process!
