wedding belles

i have been MIA lately...but i promise i have a good reason! i recently was a bridesmaid for my best friend's wedding!

i thought i'd share a few pictures (big thanks to my sister who snapped pictures for me with my camera!) since the scenery was beautiful AND because i did all the makeup for the bride, mother of the bride, two bridesmaids, and myself! i had no plans or any ideas ahead of time on what i was going to do so i just picked what i thought fit them personally right at the moment they sat down and hoped for the best. luckily everyone raved how much they loved how they looked! phew!
i also did my own hair for the wedding. it was my first time doing any kind of fancy updo and i think it turned out ok. not exactly how i envisioned what i wanted but not too horrible either.
more details of the back. i just curled sections, twisted the curls and pinned to the side. i added little blossoms from a floral branch from walmart.
dusting some nars albatross all over for that soft glow!
myself and two of my best friends/other bridesmaids. these ladies did their own makeup! i didnt touch them ha.
closer look at makeup. i didnt go too crazy...since we were wearing purple i decided to rock some plummy eyes and raspberry cheeks.

neutrogena healthy skin foundation
mac msfn med dark
bonnebell glimmer bronzer
nars laguna bronzer
nars crazed blush
mac ccb in hush
nars albatross

mac pp quite natural
UD toasted and hustle

the rest of the bridesmaids! our styles are all very different so i had to take that into account when doing makeup. one girl preferred intense cool shades for e/s and another wanted a very shimmery natural look.
the dinner...roast beef, red skinned potatoes, sesame chicken, green beans w bacon, rolls and salad. yum!
the whole bridal party! it was such a beautiful wedding and the weather couldnt have been more perfect...i wish all the best to the lovely couple!
