Okay bees, so I really didn’t know how to title this thread. haha
But my point is this…are you going to do your hair and makeup close to how you wear it on a daily basis? Or are you going to get over-done with an elaborate updo, when you normally don’t do much with your hair and makeup?
I decided to get some opinions because even though I do wear makeup daily, and figured out my “final wedding makeup” I feel like I might have too much trouble getting “overly glam” on my wedding day. I was thinking that maybe I should stick with my normal hairstyle, my straight bob since my hair is short, instead of curling it, and doing something close to my everyday makeup, but adding false lashes.
I do want to feel like myself and be comfortable, and make sure that I don’t have any problems with my hair or makeup the morning of, since I’m doing them both myself. So what do you think; be myself just a little more glammed up, or go all out and be special for my special day?

My makeup will look the same, it will just be of better quality, and better applied. I like my makeup look, I just don’t have the products that make is untouchable.

My hair is naturally straight and I always wear it down. On my wedding day it’ll either be half up half down curly or down and curly. I also only usually wear eyeliner and mascara….so I am going to be more glammed up in that aspect with the works.

I don’t know anyone who wears an up-do on a daily basis..lol but maybe it is just the crowd that I run in :-p// I will be wearing my hair down and wavy (neat waves) by request of Fiance. I usually get my makeup done by a pro for special occasions so there is not much that I will change. Def not my daily look, but nothing that makes me look like someone else.

I normally wear heavy makeup and get all done up so I’m hoping the makeup people do more of a glamorous look and go more dramatic..but not sure how its gonna work out cuz that’s usually my everyday look!lll I say go dramatic its the only time you can be super glammed out and all eyes on you:) it also depends how ur Fiance likes ur makeup ,my Fiance has only one request and that is to go super dramatic!LOL

I definitely still looked like myself. I had an updo, but it wasn’t a super-formal one. I kept my makeup very soft, pretty, and natural (we got married at 10 AM, so a full face of dramatic makeup would have looked weird).

@MrsNeutrino: lol, yeah. I was thinking the same thing. I have long blah hair, and will have an updo done, so thats definitely different.
As far as make up went, I dont wear make up usually on a daily basis, but my wedding day make up was fairly light and natural, so I do think I looked completely like myself.

@agirlwithdreams7: I saw your wedding makeup the other day and LOVED it! You look so beautiful, your application and choice of colors is amazing!
I usually go all out with my makeup even if I just take out the trash 😀 I don’t really know what I could do, the “regular” bridal looks are all too natural for me. The only thing I don’t do often is false lashes, and I definetely will wear some.
I cut my hair a couple of months ago, now it’s about shoulder length, and I can’t wait to have it long again. I do curl it from time to time, wear it up/down whatever I feel like. I think I’ll go for long, curly and down on the day of.

I mostly wear my hair up so an updo was an easy option, obviously a little more fancy than every day but nothing over the top. My hair also would look like crap by the end of the day if I wore it down. I wear make up on a daily basis but had it done. Nothing dramatic, just good quality and done to look really good.
I think looking somewhat like yourslef in the pictures is a good thing!

I had my makeup done for my sis wedding and i looked like a tranny 🙁 everyone agreed! So yeah, gonna do my own make up! my hairstylist and I have become pretty cool over the years. So i am gonna have him do my hair but nothing crazy, nothing he hasn’t ever done before. he charges like NOTHING so its worth it to have several trials done. It is very important that i look like myself on my wedding day!

I wear a messy bun everyday so I will definitely wear my hair down and curled for the big day. I’ll also have more glammed up make up but I still want to look like me. I wear make up everyday so I can amp it up a bit and it won’t be out of character. But I don’t want to over do it because I want people to say that I look beautiful not that my makeup does.

I never wear makeup, but I wore my hair down, which I never do normally. Darling Husband loved it.

I got all dolled up with natural makeup (compared to my usual non makeup look) and my hair up. I don’t think I looked too different, but my mother and Darling Husband seemed to think it was like “WOAH”. And it really wasn’t. 😛
