Hi lovelies! Today was so much fun. I had my wedding hair and makeup trial with the amazingly talented Alicia Wheeler. It was fabulous to get all glammed up and figure out all the little details of how I want to look on my big day. First, let me start by saying that I am really OCD when it comes to my hair, makeup, and nails. Whenever I am getting any of them done professionally, I have to decide whether I will keep my mouth shut about details that are bothering me and be miserable, or be honest about things that I would like changed/fixed. It often doesn’t go over well when I mention changes I would like, even though I am always super nice about it! The reason that I bring this up is that Alicia is the only hair and makeup artist I have ever met who is as detail-oriented and perfectionistic as I am. She wanted me to tell her everything I liked and didn’t like, so I felt completely at ease giving her the feedback I often feel like I need to keep pent up inside. The hair that I decided to go for is loose, romantic curls which will be accented with a small jeweled headband. The makeup features soft brown matte eyeshadow with dramatic black winged eyeliner (we will go a little smaller with the wing on my wedding day) and fluffy, feminine lashes. We used subtle contouring and highlighting on my cheeks and nose. My lip color is a pretty muted mauve. I felt like a glamorous mermaid bride!
What do you think of my bridal look??
I am wearing a dress from J. Crew with a vintage gucci watch and a couple of necklaces from Rocksbox (don’t forget you get your first month free with code emilyxoxo5 at checkout).
PS – Did you notice in almost every photo, Penelope is staring up at me, awaiting direction? I love how this little wild child has learned to look to me for reassurance whenever she is unsure of herself.
