So it's a little early, but I've already been saving pictures for my makeup inspiration. My mom did my makeup for all of my high school dances and I always thought she did a great job:
She is about the only person I'd trust to do my makeup because I can tell her when I don't like it. I'm that girl who will try to hide my tears and tell someone I love my hair/makeup/whatever because I don't want to hurt their feelings.While I don't want to hurt my mom's feelings, I feel like I can tell her when I don't like something and I can have her redo it.
I want fairly dramatic eyes for the big day - And if you didn't catch the theme in the pictures, I like colors that make my eyes look more green. I refuse to call my eyes brown because I think hazel or green eyes are so pretty! My inspiration pictures don't necessarily have the colors of eyeshadow I'd prefer, but they have the look I'm going for:
I'm confident my momma will be able to pull it off, and I'm excited for the few moments of relaxation spent with her (hopefully) before the craziness starts! I just can't bring my self to pay a fairly large amount of money for makeup
I'll be washing off (who am I kidding, I won't be taking time to wash my face!) that will be gone by the next morning when I have a mom that talented (especially because when I say the word 'bride' the prices go up $50).
Are you taking the DIY route or having a friend/family member do your makeup? Or is makeup something you're leaving up to the pros?
