An Autumn Wedding | Pictures of the Day & My Make Up

After taking a little break I thought I’d do a bit of a change of pace with my posts today. I have been trying to get myself out of a real funk recently and one thing that still helps is looking at our wedding album.

I didn’t think being married would change anything. I thought we’d bumble along the same with my just having the hassle of changing my last name. Honestly though, something has changed. I can’t really put my finger on what but it feels different. It feels secure. I don’t know if it was the nerves before the wedding that have now settled, but it’s a nice feeling.

I won’t go in to detail about the whole day as it would end up as a mammoth post but I loved planning the little touches and ended up with a look and feel that I was really happy with.

The theme was a sort of woodland/rustic/vintage vibe and it worked so well on a sunny day in a October.

Make Up

Make up wise I chose to do my own with help to get the light smoky look on the eyes. I am so glad I did my homework for a good base as I had a mega cluster of spots that popped up on my chin on the day so really needed the coverage! I went for Armani Luminous Silk in the end, as after LOADS of testers, it sat the best on the skin and photographed well with no flashback. I am obviously biased but I think it looks great in the photos!

I used:

Primer- Benefit Porefessional

Concealer – MAC Prolongwear in NW20 (a bit darker than the foundation shade I usually go for but it sits well on the skin)

Base – Georgio Armani Luminous Silk in 4.5

Bronzer – Collection Bronze Glow Matt Powder in Terracotta

Blush – No7 in Soft Damson

Eyes – Smashbox Eyeshadow Primer / Naked2 Palette / Benefit They’re Real Mascara / Sleek Eau La La Liner in Cocoa 327 / Sleek Brow Pencil in Dark

Lips – Vaseline / Sleek Eau La La Liner in Lingerie 214 / Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Beige Trench 02

Our photographer put loads more pics on his blog here if you want to see more amazing shots of the day (my sister may kill me as she hates the ones of her with no make up but I just love them all!)

Have any fellow bloggers/readers been married recently and still love looking at your pics? Are any of you getting married soon and can’t wait? As always comment below and let me know what’s in your head.
