One of my favorite wedding day make-up looks is the simple, rosy-cheeked, classic bridal look. It’s timeless, gorgeous, and let’s the bridal (and bridal party) look lovely and natural. The best part of this make-up look is that, with the right products and a light hand, it’s a super easy look to create on your own (and save money by not hiring a wedding day make-up pro).
Want to give it a try? Here’s a round up of products to create a classic bridal make-up* – either by splurging, by saving, or by mixing and matching.
Ah, the honeymoon – think of it as your reward for surviving the wedding planning process! I always recommend trying to pack for your honeymoon at least a week in advance – that last week of wedding planning is notoriously hectic. To help you out, I’ve compiled a little list of what to pack in your honeymoon beauty bag*:

Today’s post was inspired by a request from someone who follows me on Twitter (you are too, right? Because y’all – I’m funny. I will be your everything.). Anyhoo, I was asked to come up with a bunch of potential gifts for the groomsmen and also do up a few ideas for ladies. So I came up with this mini round-up of great bridesmaid gifts (all for under $30):
In an ideal world, we would all have closets full of Jimmy Choos and gallons of Chanel No. 5 at our disposal. But this is the real world and if you’re reading this blog – it means that you’re probably planning a budget wedding. And planning a budget wedding often means deciding where you should spend and where you should save. One easy place for the ladies to save is on make-up. Yes, it would be lovely to hire a professional artist who uses only the best products BUT you probably can’t afford that. Luckily, I am here to help you. I’ve rounded up my favorite affordable bridal beauty finds for you (They’re also great for your honeymoon!). Go forth and enjoy!
I’m not done talking about my under $5,000 wedding in Texas! And today, I’m talking specifically about my bridesmaids (or BMs for those of us who like the potty humor). I have to say that my bridesmaids were probably the most awesome ones ever. Seriously. Don’t be jealous.
A key ingredient to a fabulous bridal look is… great skin. Really. If your skin is radiant, your make-up will look amazing, your hair will shine, and your photos will be stunning. But let’s be honest, getting great skin can be EXPENSIVE – if you don’t know where to score a deal. The key to gorgeous skin can be achieved at home AND on a drugstore budget – just use these brands religiously.
You may or may not be a make-up girl on a regular basis but I promise you, you will want make-up in your wedding pictures. Making sure you are adding appropriate amounts of facial color for the pictures you have chosen is important. Doing your own make-up can be really fun and cost effective. Utilizing other make-up artist resources prior to your wedding date can help prepare you.
You saw it in a magazine; you saw it on a friend, now you are looking at yourself with an orange… tan? Spray tan “gone wrong” is not what you want put in your bridal announcements. The appropriate pre-spray tan steps can be given to you at the TIME of your wedding or now.
One of my favorite trends right now is the fresh, natural look of make-up for brides and the ladies in the wedding party. Chalk it up to the more casual direction that weddings are taking or Kate’s signature look – I don’t care, I love it. The best part of natural make-up is that, with the right products and a light hand, it’s a super easy look to recreate on your own (and save money by not hiring a wedding day make-up pro). Here’s how to do it!
