*Note: Some of the next few entries are going to be catch up posts. I didn’t blog a lot before (or after) the wedding, but I would still love to get everything in here, so please bear with me and enjoy some of these posts from the past.

2 weeks before the wedding, the last time I was in NH before the big weekend was when I did my makeup trial with my sister Kerri. She did the following makeup for me based on what I was looking for.

I knew I wanted shades of brown shadow with brown liner. I wear eye makeup well and I wasn’t scared to go a little bolder. Kerri was worried that it would be too dark, but after the trial, I think she was convinced. This was very close to what I was looking for and I was happy with the results.

When I was back in New York, I made a date with my friend Megan to hit up Sephora for some materials. I love makeup, especially good quality makeup, but damn it’s expensive! I made the decision to do my own makeup to save money, I’m not sure if I saved any money, but I at least got to keep all of the makeup that I used on the wedding day as opposed to paying $60 to $100 for just the application.

This is the makeup I used to achieve my wedding day look. Missing is the lip gloss/lipstick I used and the eyebrow pencil because I borrowed them from my sister and I don’t have them anymore. I spent about $100 on makeup, but it was worth it because I am still using it today.

Like I said in previous posts, I don’t have my professional wedding photos yet, so this is the best picture I have of what my makeup looked like. I have to say though, I was extremely happy with how it all came out. I thought I did a great job and it looked nice and natural.

I’ve been off getting married!!! Sorry I haven’t blogged, well I guess I’m not that sorry because I really haven’t had time, but I wanted to put up a few pictures, especially for my friend Katie who does not have Facebook and is dying to see some, so here are a few to hopefully sate you.

I can’t believe I’m married and the wedding is over! It was absolutely perfect and it was without a doubt the best weekend of my life! Now we are off to Denver! Here we come Great American Beer Fest! 😀

I’m doing my own makeup for the wedding. I know some may think it’s crazy, but I feel completely confident that I can do an amazing job! I’m pretty good at doing my own makeup and I know what I can pull off and what I can’t. I haven’t bought the makeup yet, but I think I am about ready to go ahead and make the plunge. I’ve been doing lots of research, or rather picture hunting to help me make my decision on what I want it to look like.

I’m going with an overall brown theme. I love these pictures here, I think the top picture is my favorite. I love the eyeshadow! I like that it’s shimmery, but a little bold at the same time. I don’t think I’m going to use black liner, I think I will stick with brown, so it’s a little more subtle. I am going to practice with both black and brown though just to make sure I get my desired look.

I like these other two pictures, but I think the top picture is a combination of these two, which is why I like it the best. It may seem a little dark to some, but in my opinion I pull off eye makeup really well and I’m not afraid to go a little bold. I don’t think it will be too much. That’s what the practicing is for anyway. I will be sure to update you and take pictures when I do actually do my trials. Probably sometime this week!

Anyway, it’s Labor Day and I had a super lazy day yesterday, so today Derek and I are ready to get down to business and knock out some more wedding tasks.

I had THE BEST bachelorette party anyone could’ve asked for! I went out with an amazing group of ladies who I absolutely LOVE so much and we had the BEST time ever! I got way too drunk and literally spent 12 hours yesterday recovering. I will be sure to recap ASAP!

19 days till the wedding!!!

Hope you all have a good Labor Day!
