Vote for my wedding look! Take the poll – Lips

My wedding is 5 months away–and you know I’m feeling the stress right about now. I am starting to plan my wedding look — color story, if you want to be specific — and I pretty much have settled on a rose gold eye with black accents, and gold liquid liner accents around the outer corners. I will be wearing corner lashes that will not look too fake, but just enough to add some length. I am having a hard time coming up with a lip look that goes well with my eyes and I want YOU to help me choose. Please vote for your favorite look below! Feel free to add comments as well if you want to add some suggestions. TO VOTE: Please view the 5 looks below and at the bottom there is a voting section where you can click on the name of the look you like.

This can be because of over-extravagant clothing, excessive makeup, overpowering perfumes,… Continue Reading
