The prettiest Fake Bridal EVER

When I saw how these photos by Jessica Janae turned out from our bridal makeover I nearly fell over. She is such an amazing artist.

THEY ARE SO GORGEOUS! It took me 100 years to pick the ones I wanted to post! Feast your eyes on these morsels of loveliness….
(also, and let this be a lesson to you, I did her lashes outside in the wind and we didn’t wait a proper amount of time for them to dry  before changing her dress etc. so they got a little messy)

    Ooh, are you going to include the eyelash application in the tutorial? Because that would be awesome.

    She is gorgeous! Also heads up re the Free People dress. The link is to their “foiled” version which is only in purple and pink, but the bride is wearing their basic version which comes in like 10 colors including the cream: .

    BUT they’re on sale at Macy’s! I got the cream and the dark red one at Macy’s for $44 each! They’re super soft and flowy. They’re also on sale at but for $74:
    Still better than the free people price of $98 so I thought I’d share :).

    The contouring is beautiful here! And you can’t even tell she’s wearing false lashes.

    Please yes, to the eyelash tutorial! I’m enamored with those lashes, but not sure I could actually get them on 😉 A video how-to would be so helpful.
    BTW, I’m 41 and have learned so much from your blog. I feel like I can learn here instead of feeling like a nerd at the fancy make up counters. Keep up the great work!

    Beautiful beautiful beautiful and more beautiful!! This reminds me of one of my older sisters and how she picked some wild flowers on the beach to use for her bridal bouquet when she got married. 🙂 By the way, did I mention how beautiful this is? 😉 Beautiful girl, beautiful dress, beautiful makeup, beautiful pictures!

    I cannot get over how well her makeup was done! I have a similar complexion and would have loved to look that good on my own wedding day!! good thing I’ve found your blog so I can look good EVERYDAY! Thank you for including women of different skin tones in your makeovers! That alone has won me over as a fan.
