Get My Look: Wedding Hair & Makeup

Hey Beauty Lovers! You helped me to choose bridesmaid hair for my brother's wedding, and now I have the first photo of how it came out.

This was the photo you chose from the original four:

For my photo:
Here is my copycat version! I had my hair done at the Robert Gerber Salon in NJ.

For the makeup I used:

  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Porcelain - I LOVE this product. It goes on light, but has an impressive amount of coverage. There is no overwhelming fragrance, and a little amount goes a long way. I find this color to melt seamlessly into my skin. (Check out Laura Mercier's Foundation Primer)
  • RMS Beauty Concealer (For a tip on applying concealer) I can't live without this product. If I had to choose just one makeup product to take with me, then this would be it. I love the consistency, the easy application, and the extreme breathability this makeup has. I have nothing bad to say about this concealer. It's perfect!
  • Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup Check out why it's my favorite!
  • Smashbox Blush - This color ("Radiance") is fierce! It shows up without having to swipe the brush multiple times over the compact. But don't be afraid, you can easily tone down too much blush by blotting your cheeks with a tissue or adding some setting powder over it.
  • Nars Lipgloss - I was so impressed with these glosses the first time I tried them that I had to buy two! This hot pink color "Angelika" is great for a retro vibe or a Katy Perry kind of pop of color. They last; they go on smooth; and the colors look the same on your lips as they do in the bottle. The one issue I had with this gloss was it's long-term consistency, as it tends to get a bit sticky after a while.
  • MAC mascara - Clump-free, Precise, No smudges or flaking. What else could a girl possibly want in a mascara? A great wand, and a neat application. This is one of my most recent favorite mascaras. As a girl with dark undereye circles, I can't stand mascaras that flake off and leave debris under my eyes. With this mascara I had none of that nonsense, and someone even asked if I had applied false lashes to my lower lid!
  • Jane Iredale Pencil Eyeliner - This dark brown liner is a standard beauty staple in my regimen. I really like the way Jane Iredale makeup goes on and this product is especially creamy and smooth. Be sure to sharpen your makeup pencils regularly, as it keeps them primed and ready to go, and it's the only way to sanitize them.
  • Ardell Lash Clusters... lots of them! (Check out my before and after photos with false lashes!) You can find these at CVS, Walgreens, and even some grocery stores.
What do you guys think of my bridesmaid makeup and hair?
