Lets face it, everyone wants to look their best on their wedding day. Some want to get all done up and others rather look natural and more like themselves. There are so many options and looks you can choose from. It all depends on what you want and what your theme is.
Make sure you pick someone who knows what you want and is good at what they do. Regardless of taste, you shouldn’t look like you have it caked on. I was very lucky to have my friend Jennifer Lombardo do my makeup for my wedding. She is seriously awesome at what she does and I thank her for making me look gorgeous. She just got back from fashion week a few weeks ago, how exciting! I always say, a bride should look like a flawless version of herself. That is exactly what Jen did. She made me look flawless and it lasted all day.
Personally, I don’t feel you should be covered in makeup. Less is always more. But thats me. I know when you have a certain theme its hard to be natural, especially if you’re going glam or have decided to go with a certain time period. However, your true beauty should shine through and with tons of makeup thats hard. If you choose someone who is excellent at the craft then you should be fine. Have fun and be comfortable, thats the most important thing.
Here are some inspirational face off’s for your big day along with a few people I know that seriously looked gorgeous on their wedding day. Enjoy!
