Wedding Makeup

The products I used for my big day




Wedding season is approaching FAST! Just a few months away for some people. Unlike most brides, I barely thought about the decor - my #1 concern was WHAT MAKEUP SCHEME WILL I GO WITH?! Silly to some people, but for fellow beautyholics - this is major! I stressed about what moisturizer to wear, which foundation to go with, the lips, the eyes, and everything in between! After much research, Pinteresting, and trial and error I finally had a game plan. 

I've had so many people ask what products I used - so here it is!! A lonnnnng list of all of the products I used for my wedding almost a year and a half ago now! Time flies!
