It’s December 1st which means Christmas is just 25 days away! And, just as exciting, it’s the start of Blogmas!! For those who don’t know, Blogmas is a Christmas blogging challenge which sees us participants (nearly 100 of us!) aiming to blog every day of December. I joined the challenge without thinking about how much university work I would have in December, so I am unsure whether I will fully complete the challenge, especially with all the Christmas festivities.. But I’m determined to give it a damn good go!
So for Day 1 it’s just a general winter post, and I thought why not combine this with an idea about Christmas weddings. I was asked to participate in a wedding type post by Lover.ly – an online wedding dress boutique, that has the most beautiful dresses you can dream of. They asked me to combine a post featuring my favourite make-up items to wear with a dress, and how I would style my make-up on the big day.
I opted for this beautiful dress as I just love the simplicity of the dress yet with its extravagant skirt. I think it’s so stunning and opted for some neutral make-up products as I think wedding days are all about showing off natural beauty, especially for winter weddings. The Bare Minerals Foundation is light and natural, yet with a fabulous coverage. I chose the Bobbi Brown Rose Shimmer Compact Blush as I love these rosy shades, and it’s not Christmas without a little shimmer, am I right? For the eyes I chose theNaked Basics Palette which I love. The shades are perfect! And they have the most amazing pigmentation so you could create a really dramatic eye for the wedding day. Of course, I would opt for a sublte smoke but wouldn’t go for anything too extravagant. Although I would heap on some Benefit They’re Real! Mascara as lashes are very important for wedding day pics. Finally I would add the finishing touch of MAC Cosmetics “Playland” Lipstick which I think compliments the shimmery blush perfectly.
How would you wear your wedding make-up?
Are you taking part in Blogmas?
Lots of love,
