yesterday i had my makeup trial with my beloved makeup artist (slash friend from high school -fun fact: i have been telling her for the past seven years that when i get married she would be the person to do my makeup on my big day. i can’t believe the time has finally come for me to make good on my promise!). as you can imagine we had the best time and i am over the moon excited for her to recreate the look in january.
going into the appointment, i naturally turned to pinterest to find inspiration. if i could describe how i want to look as a bride, it would be classic, romantic, and california-girl inspired. at the end of the day, i still want to look like me, just enhanced. after all, the last thing i want S to think as i walk down the aisle is, “who are you and what did you do with my fiance?”
luckily i was able to find a few photos that reflected my ideal makeup aesthetic and brought said looks to my appointment with janelle.
though she’ll add fake eyelashes for a little extra glam on the big day, the final product was pretty natural (most similar to the largest photo on the left). so much so that i’ve already ordered a few of the products she used to incorporate into my everyday routine. below are some of the goodies she used to create my bridal look. i can’t wait to see how everything else comes together!
