Bridal Beauty

When I was a bride I remember spending hours looking on Pintrest and in wedding magazines about what I wanted my ‘wedding day look’ to be. I had had my dress for months, had already started practicing walking in my shoes and my jewelry picked out. I was a few weeks out from my makeup trial and I was just panicking about what I wanted my makeup to look like.

On a day to day basis I don’t wear too much makeup. I’ve worn false eyelashes once before (my senior prom!) and my only true makeup staple is lipstick. I knew I wanted to look natural but I still wanted to look more beautiful than I did everyday. I also knew that with the Savannah heat and humidity I needed something to really stay on my face. No one wants a melty bride!

A couple things I considered when choosing my look:

Airbrush foundation was a must. Again, with the Savannah heat I wanted my look to last all night.

Lips were crucial! I love lipstick. Lipstick of all colors. I own probably 30+ tubes. BUT- my groom hates it. So I knew I had to choose something subtle yet feminine and that wouldn’t completely rub off on him during our first kiss.

I wanted a little drama with my eyes. Not a black smokey eye but something to really pop!

All of these things I shared with my makeup artist during my trial. And what she created was absolutely amazing! I could not have been more happy with how my trial and my day of makeup looked. And let me tell you, that airbrush foundation is bullet proof! The morning after I hopped out of bed and was immediately ready to go because I still had make up on. Win!

Here are a few style boards I created to help our brides out there conceptualize their own wedding day look. Enjoy!
