Putting On My Face...Bridal Beauty

While I'm still on the fence about what to do with my hair, I have a pretty clear vision of how I'd like my makeup to look on my wedding day.  I normally just wear black eyeliner, mascara, and some lip gloss.  In keeping with with my 'I want to look like myself' mentality, I would do barely there foundation with my signature black eyeliner on the top lid, with maybe a slight winged out tip.  I don't usually wear lipstick, but I've heard it's a good idea for pictures, so I may consider it.  But I do really love just a nude colored lip.   I also want to wear fake eyelashes, something I haven't done before - but I love how fancy they seem. And if you can't be fancy and long-lashed on your wedding day, then when can you?!  :)

I've only ever had my makeup done professionally once, so I don't have a ton of experience with it.  I'm scouring pinterest, and sites like the beauty department to get ideas.  I'll definitely be printing out pictures to bring with me to the salon.

I'm a little behind on the hair and makeup trial, so I need to get that scheduled, since we are at the 3 month mark.  Eeeek, so much to do still!

I love this look on Christina Hendricks - simple, but gorgeous. I dyed my hair red about a year ago, and I'm still getting used to switching makeup-colors that compliment my hair color.

Are you having your makeup professionally done?  Has anyone had a makeup lesson, and then done your own makeup on the wedding day?  It might be nice to learn how I should be doing my makeup.  I know a lot of places are using the airbrushed foundations now, so I may give that a try too.  Did you love your makeup on your wedding day?  Did it translate to pictures like you thought it would?  If you have any tips I'd love to hear them!
