I do sometimes. I have always hated the fact my hair was thin and fine. I can never do the styles others can and it makes me feel really nervous about my hair on the big day.

I just wanna look perdy. :/

I frequently go without makeup. Now that I’ve been prepping for our wedding, I’ve noticed myself putting in a little more effort in the mornings, but Mr.ND and I live apart and I’ve got no one to impress at school (other than interview/guest/presentation days, but if I’m dressing up then I’ll do my hair/makeup) so I just shower and go, usually. I just try to remind myself that if I’m going to do anything, it should be for me, not because I feel like I have to. That, and I suck every minute of sleep out of the morning that I can 🙂

I realized that recently too! I used to be strictly wash and go and now I put a lot more thought and time into prepping. I felt pretty pathetic going into Sephora for the millionth time with a coupon and realizing I have NOTHING to buy because I’ve already purchased an entire arsenal within the past 4 months.

My makeup obsession started when I found the look that I wanted and then bought all of the makeup and brushes to achieve it. But then I kept on buying and now have 3 Mac eye shaddow palettes, and another eyeshaddow palette from Coastal Scents. I’ve probably spent over 300.00. Now that I have all of this eye shaddow, etc I am constantly playing around and trying different looks. Sometimes, I wish I had just went and paid for a makeup trial.

As for my hair- I plan on having it professionally done, but am obsessing over pictures for inspiration.

@skyeatnight: Do you mean for the wedding or just in general?  I think for the wedding it stems from just wanting to look your absolute best, but as for in general, I always am looking for ways to scrimp on my lengthy makeup routine haha.

It makes me laugh that when our parents got married 25+ years ago, nobody had professional hair and makeup done. My parents’ wedding pictures show both of them with their poofy 80’s hair, styled at home, and so does my future in-laws’ pictures. Yet my mom is insisting that I need to have my hair and makeup done at a salon on my wedding day!

I’m definitely way more obsessed w/ my hair, makeup, skin, body… FI was more than a little shocked when I told him how much it’s gonna cost for me to get highlights, mani/pedi, various things getting waxed, airbrush makeup, and updo for the wedding.

Fiance always tells me I look hot when I’m makeup-free and walking around barefoot in sweatpants and an old tank top.  Makes me wonder if it’s worth all the fuss for the big day!
