Getting Pretty: Hair and Makeup Inspiration

So I made the decision to do my own day-of makeup and/or let my bridesmaids help. After doing research to see how much professional makeup costs (for one day of wear!) I decided although airbrushed has an awesomely professional look and I definitely don’t have those skills myself, it was more worth it to me to spend that money on makeup I can use all the time (and get really awesome at using). I love some of the higher-end brands I’ve invested in lately a la MAC, Tarte and Urban Decay (beyond my everyday Maybelline and CoverGirl).

For my makeup I want to look “sweetly rosy” mixed with “classic bombshell”.

Rose red lips and rosy cheeks with neutral but dramatic eyes.

I want the bridesmaids to rock essentially the same look, but the red lips to be replaced with fuchsia.

For my hair, Theo expressed that he doesn’t like it all up and would like it down. I think a nice compromise to keep it out of my face and feeling a little more dressy would be to have it half-up with some kind of pretty braid ( or twist?) and curls combo.

I would love to see those little sweeties with a fun little detail on the top of their heads…maybe a curled ponytail or a little ballerina bun.

I haven’t thought too much about Bridesmaid hair..I guess I’m pretty open to whatever they want to do! Any suggestions?
