Mascara is about the only thing I use with any confidence. And Blistex.
I'll be leaving my cosmetics to professionals on my wedding day.
I'm not down with the make-up lingo so dont even know how to describe what I want. (ummm.. make me look hot, but in a natural yet dramatic and timeless way please)
A picture speaks a thousand words so have started collecting pictures of women who's make up I would like to emulate on my wedding day.
Here is my first one.
The girl from the Veronika Maine advertisements. I not only love her make up but also digging her hair... (although perhaps I'd ease off on the trendils).. but really like that loose, relaxed style pulled back low at the nape of her neck.. As for her makeup, whatever it is it looks good.
Clockwise from top left: 1. dress by Temperly London headpiece from Pickle & Macaroni, 2. dress by St Pucci Couture, flower corsage by Johnny loves Rosie, 3. Lace dress and shrug from Ausgusta Jones, headpiece by Ryan Wilde, 4. Dress by Jasmine Bridal, feather headband by VV Rouleaux
They have given fairly traditional dresses a twist just by adding an interesting or unexpected head piece. Love it.
This wedding was originally posted on Once Wed.. and I implore you to check out the rest of the photos.. It has been seen on many blogs since because its so bloody awesome.
I love her hair. It looks relaxed, loose and carefree. I want my hair like that at my wedding.
I also love her cardigan.
And these photos have made me question what sort of wedding dress I want.. We are aiming for an outdoorsy back to nature sort of thing, so I thought beading, lace and that sort of stuff was out.. but maybe it can work...
