I don’t wear make up on a daily basis and went for a really natural look. I wanted a more even skin tone to camouflage my blemishes. No make up trial as I met my hair and make up team for the first time the morning of my Destination Wedding.

Here is my inspiration! I love a glam look! Love the soft pink or nude lips for when im wearing my wedding dress & a bold lips for when I change into Nigerian traditional wear. I plan to hire a makeup artist that does airbrush makeup for my big day.

My MU trial didn’t go well but on the flip side; I was able to see “what I didn’t like”.  So on my wedding day, my Glam Squad was a success. 1621779_10202867515183008_385820728_n

I don’t wear a full face of makeup so it was a big shock to see what I looked like at my trial. I was super nervous after it cause I hated how it came out. I told her the changes that I wanted to make and she really came through! I would just be honest and tell her what it is that you don’t like.

fabange:  Looks like she could have used warmer tones on you with red/yellow/orange undertones… It’s definitely clashing with your natural beauty. I’d say go with something with more golds or copper hints, a bolder eye (you have gorgueous eyes), and nude lips……..

This is my inspiration.  A very vampy look with a dark red or purple lip.  I like very classic style Hollywood glam makeup looks with cat eye liner.

These were my makeup inspiration photos that I shared with my MUA. I don’t wear face makeup often at all and I wanted to look more natural than dramatic and not “feel” the makeup (or else I’d bother with my face all night). We tried the airbrush makeup at my trial and I didn’t like it so I went with traditional makeup the day of. So glad I did!
