My Big Day And My Face.

My Big Day And My Face.

Since having children my focus has definitely moved away from clothes and onto make up to make the best of myself. Somedays I feel like nice clothes and a toddlers jam sandwich hands is madness. Also I really believe jeans and a Tshirt can tick all the boxes if your hair/make up is on point. 

So I made the rather brave decision that I would do my own wedding make up. I had a make up trial with my friend and also had a lesson at Shu Uemura in Harvey Nichols and I just felt that I wouldn’t be happy unless I did it myself. (Bridezilla alert number 1)

However I am still torn between a variety of looks. I know that I should look like a bride on my wedding day but I’ve never looked like a bride before (maybe bride of Chucky after some heavy nights out) This whole wedding I’ve been torn between looking like me and looking like a bride.

So I had my first go at wedding make up.

I used Laura Mercier primer, Shu Uemura foundation and concealer, EstΓ©e Lauder bronzer to contour, naked 2 eye pallet, Bobbi brown blusher, Shu uemura brow pencil and Mac Shy Girl on my lips. I’m having eye lash extensions for the day also. This is my ‘bride’ look. 

However I feel that a bright lip is much more me! (Make the most of those lip fillers hey!)  Is it completely mental to decide on the day? Go with the flow? Or is decision making while vomiting with nerves frowned upon? Time will tell my friends.

    Really loving your wedding make up, I wish I could do my own make up that well. (Mind you my acne fucking ruins everything anyway)

    Looking forward to your next blog entry x

    Your makeup looks lovely. But I love the bold lip option. I think it’s totally ok to decide on the day. If you tried both beforehand you could just see how you feel πŸ™‚

    I love the idea of a bold lip! We get married in October and I spoke to my bridesmaids about going for a bold lip and they said no 😞 I might do a bold lip for the evening however 😊 I’ve had the same struggle with looking like a bride and looking like me, I think I’ve gone for the me option which I’m ok with! I’ve also opted to do my own make up for the wedding. I hope all goes well with the big day when it comes xx

    I am getting married soon and have decided to do my own face and wear a bright lip! I usually wear very bright or dark lipsticks and will tone it down slightly but nude is just not for me! Go for it! Xx
