  • Wedding: February 1997

When I was married, I was used to wearing almost no makeup. While I had my hair done, it never occurred to me to have makeup done. I did my own makeup, which included some powder to keep the shine down, some eyeliner and some lipstick. I did apply some false eyelashes, which didn’t last long because they came off between the ceremony and the reception (likewise, I pried off my fake fingernails and tossed them out the window on the drive to our honeymoon!). So, this is me with no foundation, no blush, a bit of powder, eyeliner and lipstick:

I never wear make-up, I haven’t really learned how so I just don’t bother! First pic is my usual look. Kept the same shirt for the wedding day make-up! I opted to get my make-up done at a MAC counter in a department store. There was no charge, only a certain amount of product to buy (+/- 45$ in my case, make-up only took 30 min), so I bought the lipstick in order to re-apply throughout the day. It turned out much better than I expected! Since I never wear make-up, to me it looks weird when I do wear some, but I really liked it.

  • Wedding: August 2018 - Lake side

I wore very little makeup. We got married at a remote lake side cabin, there was no power or running water. I just put a small amount of makeup on hours before we drove out to the location.

Those are your  own eyelashes?  ! They are amazing.  You whole look was great, elegant with  no hint of clownishness.
