Make Me Pretty!

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?


  1. I have actually always done my own makeup and my sister has done my hair for events and have done a great job but this time I want to treat myself so I am going with a pro for both my hair and makeup.

    My eye makeup turned out a bit like the second inspiration picture with the purple shadow and it came out very nice.

  2. The jury is still out on this one for me...if I manage to find someone that can handle both hair and make-up, then I'd give her a try. Otherwise, I'm comfortable enough to do it myself...with some help from my Maids!

  3. hi laura! i'm shanna and i found your blog through weddingbee :-) i think your mom did a fabulous job in the past and you'll be in great hands with her! i'm going the diy route for both make-up and hair a)because i'm a bit of a control freak, and b)i'm a morning bride and if i don't like the work they do the morning of my wedding, i'll have no time to fix it myself!
