♥ "the best thing is to look natural- but it takes makeup to look natural." ~calvin klein

tonight i visited antonio, my favorite makeup artist at mac cosmetics,
and we played around with makeup & discussed different techniques that i 
may want to try out for the wedding.

basically, i have already decided that i am going to do my own makeup on the big day, 
because every time i have ever had it done professional, i  have waited with closed eyes 
and baited breath only to open them and find a darkened eyebrow that i did not expect-
an eyeliner too thinly drawn, or an eyeshadow color that is totally unbecoming of me--
 and also because i want to look like myself on that day.

unlike the disappointing makeup experiences of my past, tony made up my face
exactly how i would do it myself- (so much so that nick did not even notice)
 and expressed total confidence in my ability to do something very much
 like what he did. let's keep our fingers crossed.


12 ♥ love notes.:

  1. Stunning makeup. Simple is my fave.

  2. I have faith that you can do it yourself. Heck, if Kate Middleton can do it, we all can too :)

  3. That's a very beautiful, natural look. And since your makeup always looks flawless when I see you, I'm sure it'll be great on your wedding day.

  4. It looks beautiful! And I completely have faith in your abilities!

  5. You look so beautiful, Sami! This is perfect wedding makeup. You always do your makeup well - I'm sure you'll look even better on your wedding day.

  6. you guys are the sweetest.

  7. Your make up looks perfecto!! It is so important to find the right look for the big day, and natural is always best. I had an artist (since I am hopeless on my own) but if I could have done it on my own I totally would have!

  8. You look beautiful! I think its a good idea to do your own makeup- I hate when brides look NOTHING like themselves! It drives me crazy! I think the look you tried out looks beautiful- natural but with a glamorous kick :)


  9. your make up looks amazing

  10. great idea Sami! And I may have to go see your guy too over at MAC :)


♥ tell me how you really feel!
