We are finally married! It was a long day full of families, stress, and more happiness than I could have ever imagined.
I really want to tell you guys all about the day itself and of course about my makeup and hair and skincare leading up to the big day itself.
So for the biggest day of my life (so far) I really wanted my makeup to look perfect. I had been practicing my makeup for months and these are the products that I had finally narrowed it down to:
I really fell in love with the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation. It feels so good on my skin and the coverage is amazing. The formula makes it feel so much better than any other liquid foundation I have ever used.
I knew that I wouldn’t make it through the whole day without crying. (Although I would like to point out I made it through the temple ceremony, the luncheon, and the first part of the ring ceremony without crying.) This meant that I had to have a really good waterproof mascara. For me that means the Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara.
The only complaint that I have about this mascara is that it doesn’t give my lashes the same length as the regular Better Than Sex Mascara. Otherwise, it is one of the only truly waterproof mascaras I have tried.
To me there is nothing more classic than the Urban Decay Naked Palette. This was gifted to me by my great sister-in-law a couple days before the wedding and I was instantly in love. I originally planned to use the Ulta Beauty Gilded Gold pallet but I really fell in love with this one instead.
My go to eyeliner has been the Ulta Beauty liquid liner for the past few years and I figured if it’s not broken then don’t fix it. I know that it goes on really well over my shadow and gives me the really precise line that I love.
This was probably the part of my makeup I was the most excited about. Since one of my colors was red I really wanted to find a lip color that matched it. Luckily one of my friends happens to sell LipSense and they carry a color that was perfect.
Normally Chris doesn’t like when I wear lipstick because when I kiss him it gets on him. However, Lipsense really gets it when it comes to lip stains. This stuff doesn’t budge all day so it was perfect for my wedding day.
The Day Itself
So for me the day before the wedding was far more stressful than the actual wedding day. This was the day that we had people flying in, flowers were arriving, it was my moms birthday, I had to get jewelry, and we took our bridal pictures. (Shoutout to the Sleepy lotion by Lush for helping me get some sleep that night.)
The day of the wedding I woke up around 5 to get ready and be to the temple by 8. We did the ceremony and took pictures with family afterward for a couple hours. Straight from there we went to the family luncheon with everyone. After we finished there I was lucky enough to have family that was taking care of everything while I took a little cat nap.
After that we did a ring ceremony and reception that seemed to fly by. I am so glad that I have a family of people that can plan and execute or else it would not have gone off as smoothly as it did.
Let me know what you guys think!
