Make-up and OOTD

Hello all!  Thank you to all of you that commented on my post yesterday and giving me your honest feedback.  What's so funny was a lot of you girls suggested false lashes...and I did have them on!  They weren't very harsh and blended in with my own lashes very well, so it didn't come off in the pictures that much.  I was surprised at how comfortable they were...I hardly noticed they were on.

The bridal consultant definitely was more conservative in her use of colors.  On the day of, I wanted to make sure I'm happy with everything before she packs up and leave.  I wanted more coverage on my face as well because last night after a couple of hours, I noticed the coverage itself was getting lighter and lighter.  Since I need the make up to be on for 10 hours, she definitely need to apply more.  My eyes are always an issue.  I really liked how Sephora did my eyes for my engagement pictures.  Too bad I can't go back to him anymore.  My bridesmaids, though, are all getting their make up done by Sephora...by the same guy.  So I'm super excited to see how they turn out.

I am extremely sick today so sorry for the oh so boring OOTD.

Have a great Tuesday, everyone!


  1. I hope you will feel better soon! I am all for natural makeups on the day of the wedding. Family members and friends will see you very close up :). Your trial makeup was beautiful.

  2. Oh you poor thing, feel better.

    I agree with Sydney and that's what I wrote in your last post too - you want to find that balance between enough make up for the photos to something natural enough to see folks up close.

  3. I'm sorry that you're so sick. If it makes you feel any better you look great. I'm dealing with a slight cold myself and it's not fun. Boo! to being sick. I hope you feel better soon.

  4. Oh, Cindi, feel better! Your outfit is still cute! I love that bits of pearl shirt...you and Kathryn both wear it so beautifully!

  5. Feel better! Oh and why can't you go to the Sephora guy again? Is there a rule about only using the same person once?

  6. I would never have guessed you were under the weather. You look still look great!! I didn't even notice the eye lash thing or lack of. I think you looked beautiful!

  7. I hope you feel better soon! Dave has been crazy sick since yesterday afternoon and I just feel terrible for him :( Also, I totally thought your eyelashes looked great in those photos maybe just a bit more brightening near the eyebrows would draw your attention the the eyes more, but I really thought it was great!

  8. I like your OOTD, I'd call it "effortless-chic", which is what i try to aim for each day at work, but i don't think i do it as well as you Cindi!
    Get well soon so we can see more anthro reviews..hehe.
