- Wedding: October 2012
So I one of my bridesmaids (who is also my cousin) is doing my makeup and hair for our wedding (she has gone to beauty school). I asked for hair down and lots of barrel curls, and not too stiff or “crunchy” looking. The pic of my hair was after about 2 hours in hot weather and one car ride. I really like it, but I am going to ask her to volumize it a bit more and use more hair spray after it is done (she only used some before curling each section). Also, about 3 weeks before the wedding I’m going to get a trim, color, partial highlights and some layers in the back (gotta get rid of my grey hairs!).
She did my eye make up too. I’m pretty good at doing the rest of my face (I used Maybelline dream smooth mousse foundation, MAC concealer, MAC studio fix, an eyebrow filler (I am going to shape my eyebrows more), some mineral blush, and some bronzer. I’m also going to use MAC pro longwear lip creme in sweet ever after and some MAC lustreglass in love nectar (my lips aren’t pictured).
Here is my hair:
This was my eye makeup inspiration:

I’ll probably also be using longer lashes and I need to shape my brows like I said. I think it came out pretty good and I feel a lot better about it now that we tried it out 🙂
