We went to the Homestead this weekend for our final planning trip before the wedding! This time, we brought our officiant… just because (more on that later). Ostensibly, we were there to go over some final details of the timeline, menu choices, and logistics with our coordinator (ugh, there was a problem with the cake… again, more on that later). And we met our new, local, start-up florist (hmm, more on that, too)!!!
I also had a makeup and hair trial. Here were my inspirations:
Eva Longoria’,Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags for Men and Women on Sale;s loosely pinned up hair with some wispy pieces,Cheap Louis Vuitton Handbags & Louis Vuitton 2015 Bags.
Here, Rachel Weisz wears it as a faux bob. Perfect for a vintage-y wedding. However, there’s a fine line between wispy and prom ringlets, so I wasn’t sure if the black porn hairdresser could pull it off. I also had the vague notion of having it pinned to the side so I can let it down in to a side pony tail for the reception. Like this:
So here’s how it went down….
(Top left) Everyday face and undone hair; (top right): The hairdresser curled my hair with a 1 inch curling iron, spiraling around the iron to create the loose waves, teased the top a little, then pinned it to the side very loosely (bottom left); she also did my makeup and made me look really tan (why?) and put on a frosty pink lipstick (I was surprised to like it); I also took down the pins to see what the side pony would look like (bottom right).
Overall she did an okay job—but not $280 worth of okay. I don’t want to have to pay that again if I can do it myself. So I’m strongly considering DIYing (at least the makeup; the hair, with some adjustments will work—what do you think?).
I like the idea of the rosy cheek and frosty pink lips a la Miss Portman’s goddess look:
So I tried it out this morning before work. I definitely think I need to go darker on the eyes,Cheap Louis Vuitton best bags – Louis Vuitton for sale, but I didn’t want to scare anyone in the office:
What do you think? Should I DIY my own makeup or just leave it to the pro? I’m going to do a DIY hair trial too (keep you posted).
