Me and MOH K at her wedding (Photo by Kristen Gardner)
I experienced first hand how long my look would last, how it photographed, etc.—as well as just how nice and luxurious it felt to have my makeup done for me. Melissa was available for my date and lives close by—decision done. I even thought I’d skip a trial altogether, but Melissa recommended that I still do it—I knew I wanted a different look for my indoor, winter wedding than I had for MOH K’s summertime, outdoor affair, and she mentioned that my skin would be pretty different in February than in June. Here’s some inspiration pictures I’m bringing to the trial. First off, a smoky eye (definitely with some falsies):

Maybe a bold lip? This could be a fun way to bring in the coral color I like:

Maybe both? I feel like I can be a bit more dramatic with the makeup since we’re doing something indoor and at night—and you know, because I love makeup. I want it to pop, especially since my hair will be up.
What was your inspiration for wedding makeup? Did you want to look like your everyday self—or glam it up a bit?
