I like a natural, light looks, even when I’m more “done up”. The only real difference between my everyday makeup and my wedding day makeup was I used an expensive primer, I wore false lashes and I spent a lot more time making sure I looked perfect.

I wear a good amount of makeup daily as well, so I know what you mean! I just went heavier on the eyeshadow (did more with it) and wasn’t afraid to use more mascara than usual! I felt gorgeous, so I guess it worked? Oh, and I don’t normally wear lipcolor, I usually just wear chapstick.

@mandigrl04:  That’s exactly what I was going for. ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t want to look like I was trying too hard or like someone else, but I did want to feel pretty & special. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was the same with my hair. I don’t normally curl it, but I wanted softer curls and some romance.

@lovekiss:  My everyday is very similar to yours.

 I’ve been playing with makeup looks, even though my wedding is still a ways off, I’ve been wearing it the same way for like 10 years. I figured better start early ๐Ÿ˜› This thread is very helpful! Come on bee’s, more before and afters!!!
