Wedding Wednesday: My Makeup

I didn't have a makeup trial, but was confident that my makeup artist, Lucky would do a great job. She is the makeup artist for Mexican singer, Belinda and did Katy Perry's makeup for the MTV Latino Awards when they were in Guadalajara a few years ago.


When Lucky arrived, she asked me if I had any specific instructions for her. Yes, I did! I wanted my look to be natural, with a vintage, rock n roll flare! I also told her that I usually rock light gold shimmery eye shadow, thick black cat-eye liner and mascara.

Lucky applied the base stuff, I'm thinking primer, concealer and foundation? I don't wear those products because I really don't know how to apply them, eek, embarrassing, I know! I just moisturize..lol. Anyways, she did a great job matching everything to my skin tone. She also covered a  heat rash I had on my cheek, brilliantly, it didn't show up in pictures, phew!

Lucky picked some gold shimmery eye shadows and asked which I preferred, they ranged from light to dark gold. She recommended that I wear a dark gold, to pop! I went for it! Oh yeah, I was also looking forward to wearing fake eye lashes for the fourth time in my life. Yeah, I should wear them more often, they are so much fun and glamorous. 

She applied the eye liner, asked me to look in the mirror to see if I like it. It was nice, but not thick enough, and not as exaggerated as I would have liked it, so I informed her and she applied it again! I told her that I usually do mine like Amy Winehouse, but a little tamer, hehehe.She filled in my eye brows, just how I like them! Oh, and my lips got to rock MAC's Wonder Woman "red" lipstick, to top off my vintage inspired look.

Don't be afraid to tell your MUA your vision or any inspiration for your makeup, it is YOUR WEDDING! ;)

I mean i don't know what stuff is called and what order they should be applied, like my friend told me conceealer should be applied last after the eye shadow & liner and ALL my life I have been applying it first. heehee. OMG I am all about eyeliner! I don't walk out the house without it... heehee. and wonder woman red lip stick is perfect touch!
