Last week, I had a day off work and enjoyed a fun day of pampering at the salon & a visit to the make-up artist for a trail run for the wedding day up do and make up color selections.
I was past due on getting the works done on my hair. So, I went for it (all but the cut), full color (dark brown) & partial highlight (red). I've become more of a brunette over the past few years, and this visit's color is da 'bomb - I'm loving it, warm brown base color with shiny copper highlights.
Here's a sneak-peak pic of the up do for the wedding hair! I really like what Amy did with my hair. I wanted the simple front swoop to the side and then something nice in the back. Originally I thought I wanted a simple bun in the back, but I opted for pined up curls and I like the outcome. I'm still on the search for some small jewels to add to the back to punch it up a bit, but this is most likely the look I'll be going for on the big day!
Knowing that I didn't want to not look like myself on the wedding day, I asked Lisa to build a nice foundation with some color on my cheeks and a neutral toned eye with some depth. She did a fabulous job and below is a preview pic of just how much the right eye make up can really open up your eyes and make them sparkle! (Note - the left side is with no eye make up, the right is the wedding day make up!)
