Upon the start of your appointment, if you were to ask anyone on the Makeup In The 702 team what their goal for you was, any one of them would say “To make you look and feel like you on your most beautiful day”.
But when we turn that question around and ask our clients what they are looking to get out of their appointment or even what makes them feel beautiful on a given day, the answers don’t come as easily. So today we wanted to share a few places we find inspiration and think you will too for your wedding day hair and makeup look.
Instagram or social media in general are in invaluable took for scrolling through beautiful images from photoshoots and real weddings a like. Whether you are looking for ideas for decor, dishes or dresses, there is no shortage of beautiful things to be found there.
A few of our current favorites:
The Red Carpet
Next time you’re planning on parking it in front of the TV to watch all that is hot and happening on the red carpet with your girlfriends, make sure you add “note pad and paper” to your list of supplies along with champaign and pop corn.
Take a look at the various cuts and neck lines of the dresses- is there something that looks similar to the what you have our heart set on? How are the celebrities and stars wearing their hair with those dresses? What new trends in jewelry and accessories are you seeing?
I want to be on the record as saying, HOW ON EARTH DID WE PLANB WEDDINGS WITH OUT PINTEREST?!?! My goodness!!! Not only is is an endless resource for gorgeous inspiration and unique images, if you’ve got a few minutes you can also find instructions and directions on how to create the wonderful things you find and make our wedding dreams come true.
As you get closer to your wedding date, save your favorite images to your phone photo roll in a special album so they are easily accessible (if you are getting ready for the wedding in one of the hotels on the Las Vegas strip WiFi is notoriously bad).
Celebrities and Magazines
Much like scoping out the red carpet to see what the newest trends are, so much great inspiration can come from keeping an eye on celebrity magazines.
Is there an actress or singer that you’ve heard you that you look just like? How many times have people said that you remind them of Naomi Campbell or Megan Fox? Is Beyonce or Kate Moss your forever hair crush? Look for photos of those lovely ladies in the rolls they play and in formal settings. Use those as a guide for what direction you go in for your wedding day look.
When you think of beautiful things, remember to think of your self as well!
This is just a short list of places were ideas can be sparked when you are looking for how to proceed with your wedding planning. We hope that these are able to help you find the the inspiration that leads to your perfect look on the day of your wedding!!
