@GMelanie:  Not really! 🙂  DH lived in Culver City for some time, so I know that weather well.  I say just go with your gut on what you love.  Are you thinking up or down hairdo?  Up and out of the way might help if it happens to be one of those hot days.

I think it depends on your dress. Some dresses just suit up-do’s and others look better with hair down. But if it’s going to be or especially if it’s humid then an updo might make you more comfortable and hold it’s style longer. As for make up I would say for an afternoon outdoor wedding go with something natural. Matte natural eyeshadow and a pretty lip colour would be nice and natural light can look quite harsh so make sure your base is matte and as flawless as possible.

Good luck, I am sure you will look beautiful whatever you choose :0)

@GMelanie:  For your makeup, sephora sells a really good make up setter. Just mist your face with it after application, and your make up stays put for hours longer. I travel a lot for work and use it to prevent smudging and shiny face issues. I have combo dry/oily skin too. I would pick some up and test it a few days to make sure you like it!
