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.

Bridesmaid Makeup Inspiration:
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?
