Here's some of what I used to create this look! 👇

Eye Shadow: Urban Decay "Smoky" Palette
Foundation: Urban Decay "All Nighter" liquid foundation
Contour: Too Faced Cocoa Contour "Chiseled to Perfection"
Lips: Jeffree Star Liquid Velour Lipstick "Mannequin"

Would anybody be interested in watching some short Instagram makeup videos? I've been thinking about trying it out!

Here's { BRIDE TIP } No. 5 on this chilly Sunday afternoon! ♡ Get your hair and makeup done professionally. Haha, you knew this one was coming! I can't tell you how many horror stories I've heard from clients and friends about how they decided to "save money and do their own makeup", or decided to let their "friend in beauty school do their hair for free" - which is great until they look back at the wedding pictures and regret it. Trust me, I get it! I know how expensive weddings are. It's not cheap to book a beauty professional to do your hair and makeup. But as a professional and also a new bride, I have to tell you - spend the extra and treat yourself to get your hair and makeup done.
It's so worth it. Heck, I'm a makeup artist, and I stressed myself out a little as I was doing my own makeup on my wedding day! 😂 Take that extra worry off of your mind and I promise, you'll be so much happier with the outcome! 💕

Have ever been bored with your hair? One of my favorite things to do for somebody that has never had color before, is to change it up with some baby lights!

It adds a natural "sunkissed" look without complete changing your color.

I did the baby light method on Elena, and I have to say, I'm a fan! Can you believe she's 14? She's looking so gorgeous. 😍

I had to post this picture before November is gone. Look at the beautiful fall colors in the background!
I gave my brunette sister some blonde balayage, and I'm a huge fan. Everybody goes for the icy white blondes now, (which I love) but I decided to create a warm blonde on the baby sis. It's perfect for her skin tone, and it gives her hair so much dimmension! 💕
My family is the best for letting me play with their hair! Dad, you're going blonde next. Haha! 😂

I'm finally sharing { BRIDE TIP } No. 4! ♡ Trust your own style, and let your creativity be expressed in your wedding day.

I am 100% positive that my mother looked at me like I was crazy at least a hundred times during the planning process. 😂 I was one of those girls that had been dreaming about my wedding since I was young, and my Pinterest wedding board was full before my husband and I were even engaged. I wanted my wedding to be whimsical and different than everybody else's. If you have a dream, make it happen! For my wedding, we made our own bouquets, I had Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin playing at the reception, and I designed my own dress.

Don't convince yourself that your crazy ideas aren't possible. Take the opportunity to show how individual and unique you are.
