Bridal Beauty Diaries: Esther – Hair and Makeup

Posted by

Initially, I was unsure about whether I would be doing my own wedding day makeup or hiring a professional, so I visited a Bobbi Brown makeup counter to see if I could find the right look and do it on my own. While I did make several purchases—including the long-wear cream shadow stick in Golden Pink, blush in Nectar, and eye shadow in Champagne Quartz—I’ve booked a makeup artist. I do not want to have to stress that day about doing my makeup, especially getting that eyeliner on straight! Since I do not have an extensive makeup collection, I’m very happy with my Bobbi Brown purchases. I am looking forward to using them to do my own makeup for the rehearsal dinner and other special occasions leading up to the big day.

The day of, I definitely want to play up my eyes while still looking natural—which probably means more bronze/brownish eye shadows to go with my skin tone. I have always been curious about doing a smokey eye, but since I’ve never worn that look, I’m afraid I won’t look like me. I’m also considering a bright pink lip since I’ll be even more confident about my smile, thanks to my Invisalign treatment! It's great that I feel I can accentuate my smile more now without being so self-conscious. I have a few pins on my wedding makeup board on Pinterest.

I’ve also booked a stylist for my hair. I’m going for a natural and soft look—loose waves and probably a half-up, half-down hairdo. I’ve been keeping my hair pretty short (above the shoulder) for the past couple years, so I’m growing it out as much as possible until the wedding. Here are a few wedding hair looks I’ve pinned. I’m thinking about wearing a jeweled hair comb on the side but am still looking for a good picture of what I want!

Disclosure: I have received complimentary treatment from Invisalign in exchange for blogging about my bridal journey and treatment, and all opinions expressed are my own.

  • Another great idea is to have a sister, bridesmaid, or friend who's especially good with make up to act as your make up artist. Takes the pressure off the bride and also saves a little money. Can't beat that! :)
