I’m pretty put together most days.
I have a crap-ton of hair and it’s usually brushed, straightened, or generally just…dealt with.

I know my way around a makeup brush and a pair of tweezers.

But for my wedding day, I need to call in the glam squad (my hairdresser, Christy!) to make me look supa dupa fly!
Wedding hair and makeup inspiration photos were some of the first “pins” I ever added to my Pinterest board! I was drawn to really romantic, messy but perfectly messy hairstyles like these:

For headpiece reference, I am opting for a fingertip mantilla veil. Here’s a sneak peek…

On to makeup! In my everyday life, I usually wear a tinted moisturizer, a few layered eyeshadows, some eyeliner, mascara, and blush. For my wedding day, I looked for makeup inspiration on celebs who share my skin tone and overall style. Enter Adele. Not only is her makeup always perfectly applied, but her look is completely classic and absolutely stunning. Exhibit A…

While I’m not graced with her high cheekbones or creepily symmetrical face, Adele and I have a lot of features in common. We both have fair skin, eyes in the green color family, and hair with various red tones, so by choosing her makeup style, I can really get a good sense for how those colors will look on me. Now, the question is—bold or nude lip? I’ll have to play with both options when I have my trial with Christy in September—but I’ll be sure to report back!
Did anyone model their makeup style after a specific celebrity’s?
