I don’t want to brag…but it is kind of a well known fact that I have one of the most beautiful groups of friends…ever! I know I may be biased…but it’s true! Family, co-workers, pseudo strangers stalking my Facebook profile…lots of different people have brought it to my attention and I have to agree…I just have an extremely attractive set of gal pals.

This is good news for me because one of them asked me to do their makeup for a wedding she was attending and because she is so damn pretty it makes me look like I might actually have some talent! 😉

This is Lindsay. She’s beautiful. And this is before she had even an ounce of makeup on her face!!

So, as you can see, I have a lot to work with here!

I took into consideration the event Lindsay would be attending: afternoon wedding reception, technically it’s fall but its not quite ready for a fall palette but it’s too late in the season for a summer one and she was planning on knowing very few people at this event.

I wanted her to look good, without being overdone. I wanted a day time look that could carry into evening. And I wanted to find a way to represent the seasonal transition into fall.

This, is what I came up with.

Wedding Makeup with love

I was just so pleased with the way it all turned out!!

She arrived with an already flawless complexion so I decided to mix a bit of foundation with one of my favorite BB creams, to give her just a bit more coverage without making it feel too heavy.

I stuck with the classic bronze colors to bring out her very blue eyes and because I am not a fan of falsies I stayed away from those and plumped up her lashes with my favorite mascara instead!

Can we talk about those lips? They are perfectly shaped!!! It only took a quick swipe of lip gloss to accentuate those.

**I’ve included a full list of the products I used below….but, first, a couple more!!**

Oh, and I caught her cracking up while saying, “I’m not a model!!”
