Wedding Wednesday: Wedding Beauty: Hair + Makeup + Tan

For my wedding hair I knew I wanted to wear it down- it just feels more like me. My hair is naturally curly, I smooth the roots with a straightener and then touch up the curls with a tapered barrel wand to create a bohemian-inspired messy wave look. I have ashey blonde, balayage with face framing highlights via Bloom Hair Lounge. I also included my Barefoot Blonde  clip in hair extensions in shade "Peanut butter and Jealous" to create move volume. I always knew I wanted some sort of floral crown. I originally thought of a fresh flower crown but when I came across this piece from Twigs and Honey via. The Sentimentalist, I knew it was the piece for me. (For a more affordable head piece option, I wore this one from Etsy for wedding showers and my engagement photos. To add a touch more interest and dimension, I did a small fishtail braid to a piece of my hair. I love how it turned out. Other products used: Leave-in Conditioner, Hair Oil, and Hair Spray.


For wedding makeup, I honesty went with my everyday routine and just made everything a little more bold. For face I use Bare Minerals in shade Medium Beige, the Two Faced bronzer in shade Milk Chocolate, and highlight I used Becca in shade "Opal" For eyes, I went with my holy grail Lancome Eyelash Extender, L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara, Maybelline Drama Matte eye liner in shade onyx for the waterline, and Urban Decay eye pencil in shade "Underground" for under my bottom lashes. I finished off with a triple eyeshadow combo from the Urban Decay Naked Pallete (on sale!) and misted with the Urban Decay "All Nighter" makeup setting spray. For lips, I wanted very neutral, nude lips. I used NYX butter gloss in shade "Creme Brulee" and that was it! I did my own makeup because I wanted to save money and look like myself! I like how the finished product turned out!

For my tan, I did a spray tan from my favorite place, The Browning Studio. This local business owned by the beautiful Brandi Browning, is a beautiful one stop shop for all of your beauty needs. I have tried a lot of spray tans over the years, and none compare to the bronze glow of The Browning Studio! For a quick spry tan refresher for my other wedding events, I added Loving Tan two hour express in shade dark.
