Ok I will play.  I still felt like myself, just improved.  I spent more on makeup so that I could be comfident and just feel amazing on my big day.  I think it was worth every penny (although Darling Husband didn’t think so, men just don’t get it πŸ™‚  I also think that having a good photographer helps because they know how to place you and the lighting and angles that will make you look your best.  Ahhh if only I could look like this everyday πŸ™‚

@Tina.Baker:  Wow.  You look incredible in your wedding photos.  You’re makeup artist really made your eyes pop.  They look so much more blue on your wedding day.

@Tina.Baker:  You look beautiful!


@MrsFutureG:  I think all brides look gorgeous on their wedding days!  I teach 5 and 6 year olds and showed them our video highlights and they all said that doesn’t look like you!  I said which one looks better, they pointed to the wedding and said that one!

Here is a normal photo

And on our wedding day

I like playing with makeup, so I’m used to the transformation. Sometimes I do not feel like myself at all, other times I feet like myself just with improvements. That said at the wedding I felt like myself, just better.

Normal life (minimal makeup) :

Wedding (full makeup done by a professional)

(ps. this is just the best closeup of my makeup currently available. It’s not exactly the picture I’d chose to represent my big day.. but whatever)
