- Wedding: May 2014
My husband doesn’t like makeup. Or “fancy” hair. He prefers me “just out of the shower”.
I prefer myself with lots of makeup on.
I did a makeup trial I was in love with and came back. He was upset and said I looked better without any makeup. Why couldn’t I wear no makeup on our wedding day?
He had resigned himself to the fact I’d be heavily made up for our wedding. But I switched it up and went for a subtle look on the day of the wedding.
My hair was complex to do but looked natural. My hair is SUPER thin so I needed extensions – of the same length of my hair – to clip in and add thickness. My hairdresser told me doing a non-updo would take A LOT of work – my hair just isn’t meant to go loose! But it was how i pictured my wedding. What could I say? He told me where to buy the clipon extensions, I followed orders, and looked great. My excellent hairdresser took the train from New York to do my hair, my mother’s, and my sister-in laws. he did an awesome job.
It might not have been *my* favorite makeup look (the hair was perfect, thank you Mark!!!!) but I couldn’t have been happier with how happy my husband looked when he saw me. 🙂
And years from now I’ll have memorialized myself looking “natural” on my wedding day. 🙂
