Getting ready for our wedding was so much fun! We did hair (and makeup for the bridesmaids) at Lanphier Day Spa in Darien, CT, where I grew up and where our wedding venue was.
I ended up doing my own makeup, which I know was risky, but it turned out great! I’ve always had a love for doing makeup and have always been the designated makeup artist for my friends. I wasn’t thrilled with my trial, so I spent about a year practicing and searching for the perfect lip color to make sure nothing went wrong on the actual day. I love a mix of smokey eye and a pop of pigment on the lip so I don’t look washed out, since my skin is so fair.
I used a mix of these products in this order:
Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer as my base – I always moisturize before putting any makeup on: https://www.perriconemd.com/skincare/moisturizers/face-finishing-moisturizer-super-size-MP0090.html
