Okay, show of hands…who out there has to DIY their hair and make-up like I did? With today's economy, there are probably a ton of you. As much as I love my professional friends and pampering, it just wasn't feasible to fly them out to Sonoma for my wedding. So what's a gal to do if you have to wing it yet you want that gorgeous, romantic, celeb-inspired look for the special day?
• First, get a lesson from the pro! Do a trial run on a special occasion like your engagement party or holiday party. During the trial, write down or video the steps to re-create the look.
• Next, get yourself some affordable beauty supplies. Ask your professional for recommendations- they can suggest the best curling iron for your hair type, or the right shades of makeup for your skin tone. Then compare prices online on sites such as Image Beauty and the like.
• Lastly, practice, practice, practice. On wedding day, you will look like the beauty you are with a star-studded look that you did yourself. Send me pics or join my facebook fan page to upload your lovely wedding day hair and make-up looks! Toodles!!
