Long time no blog….let’s just say planning a wedding and working a full time job is not an easy task. Luckily I had a lot of people helping to make our wedding everything I dreamed of and more! Today I wanted to focus on something that was one of the most nerve-wracking parts of the wedding, my hair and makeup.
Let me just start out by saying that I do my hair in basically two ways, in a ponytail or down and curled, so the idea of doing a creative updo or a half up half down hairstyle for my wedding just didn’t seem right. I wanted to look like myself just an amped up version if that makes sense! For makeup, this is where I was really worried. I have never gotten my makeup done and liked it before so I was really nervous that I wouldn’t like it on our wedding day. Thanks to Summer my nerves proved to be nothing because I loved my hair and makeup!
I chose Make Me Up Summer for my hair and makeup and I couldn’t be happier! I wanted to share my inspo photos and what I asked for when I was talking to Summer, my makeup artist, and Heather, my hairstylist, so you might be able to do the same! Summer was amazing throughout the whole process! I had girls changing their minds about hair and makeup, additions, and schedule changes and she was so accommodating!
Now for my hair and makeup! I wanted a classic and simple look that still looked like me. Summer did an amazing job understanding what I normally do and then adding some products that I loved already. I went in for a trial and we had so much fun! On the day of, they arrived so early because of our schedule *serious godsend* and it was great! I was a stressed out mess that day of so having them there was so nice.
All in all, the wedding was perfect and I felt like me, just a little more glamorous! Exactly what I wanted. If you’re in the DFW area, I seriously cannot recommend Make Me Up Summer enough!
