Maid’s Musings: Makeup & Marriage

Kellie writes her own fashion blog, Playing Dress-Up, and runs Whatshername Vintage, an Etsy shop specializing in all things vintage. Most importantly, Kellie is Bicoastal Bride's maid of honor, and is very excited to be a part of her sister’s wedding planning!

So, ladies, you’ve got your dress. Coordinating accessories have been selected. You’ve found the perfect pair of shoes. But there’s still another very important aspect of your wedding day look to consider – makeup!

Whether you’re an avid makeup user and product addict in everyday life, or prefer to go 100 percent natural, it can be difficult to pick the perfect look for your big day. There are endless possibilities when it comes to makeup. Do you want something soft and feminine, dramatic and glamorous, or beachy and natural? No matter what your personal preference is, the right colors can help emphasize your best features and highlight your personality.

Since there are so many options when it comes to bridal makeup, I can’t exactly help you narrow down your favorites. I can, however, offer up a few bits of inspiration from some lovely celebrities. Hopefully, these pictures will at least give you a few ideas about looks you’d like to try!



If none of these looks appeal to you, or you’d just like to try out some makeup techniques for yourself, may I recommend Lauren Luke’s excellent video tutorials?


Not only can Lauren guide you through a variety of celebrity-inspired looks, but she also has her own line of makeup palettes that coordinate with her videos! She even has some bridal-inspired tutorials, if you’d like to DIY on your wedding day. Check out her YouTube channel, and happy makeup-ing!

  8. Trying to find an innovative and lucrative [B][URL=http://www.tiffanysfree.com]tiffany[/URL][/B] business? A business on sterling silver jewelries may just be the one you are [U][B]tiffany sets[/U][/B] looking for. It's never that too difficult to find reasonably priced Tiffany wholesale jewelry to get you [U][B]pandora bracelet[/U][/B] started on your way to being financially independent. The Internet is actually a good place [B]pandora bracelet[/B] to start. You virtually spend nothing to find the supplier you are seeking. No need to be technically knowledgeable to find [U]tiffany & co][/U] your valuable information, a simple understanding of how to operate the computer and use a reliable search [B]tiffany charms[/B] engine is all you need.

    Once you find your tiffany wholesale supplier, your quest [U][B]pandora bangles[/U][/B] doesn't end there. You need to understand jewelry selling basics and selecting the styles that are most appropriate [B]tiffany & co[/B] for your niche market as well as having the eye for designs that will [U]tiffany][/U] most likely sell. You must also learn the tricks of finding out which jewelry pieces are [B]pandora bracelets[/B] of superior quality. There are an abundant source of suppliers for Tiffany wholesale jewelry, you just need [B][URL=http://www.pandoraforyou.com]pandora[/URL][/B] to have that discriminating taste in ensuring you get to the best source. In this business, if you start with low quality [U]tiffany co][/U] pieces, your business will suffer.

    The key to a profitable and lucrative business is to build a [U][B]pandora bangles[/U][/B] large customer base. In order for you to get customers to comeback you must be [B][URL=http://www.tiffanysfree.com]tiffany sets[/URL][/B] able to please them with the quality of your items as well as the attractiveness of your designs. Always find unique [U][B]tiffany pendants[/U][/B] and stylish designs, you wouldn't want to sell everybody else is selling. If your pieces are just ok and plain you may have difficulty [U][B]tiffany bracelets[/U][/B] keeping faithful customers. Aside from having quality merchandise you [U][B]pandora bracelets[/U][/B] also should be pricing them reasonably, not too expensive but not too cheap. Always make [B]tiffany rings[/B] your customers feel special in finding the best priced jewelries they [U][B]tiffany bracelets[/U][/B] can find.


    Finally you will have to decide how you want to sell [B]tiffany co[/B] your items. E-commerce is of course very interesting but then in-store is also great [U][B]pandora jewellery[/U][/B] because nothing can beat the appeal of seeing the Tiffany jewelry pieces in person. It basically ends [U][B]tiffany jewellery[/U][/B] with how much you can invest in the business e-commerce will be favorable if you want to cut [U]pandora beads[/U] down on overhead expenses. On the other hand in-store selling may just make up for expenses of maintaining a [U]tiffany engagement rings][/U] showroom because customer find tangible [B]pandora beads[/B] stores are easier to trust.

  9. If you are an avid fitness walker or have been looking for [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt sneakers[/URL][/B] different weight loss methods, than I am sure you have heard of MBT shoes. Also known [B]MBT shoes[/B] as the anti-shoe, it is a range of footwear that helps improve posture, work [U]footwear etc[/U] a lot of different muscle groups, and aids in burning more calories. But the biggest stumbling block [B]mbt shoes review[/B] for most people when deciding to buy these shoes has [U][B]footwear etc[/U][/B] been its price tag of $255. Until recently, only the [U][B]footwear etc[/U][/B] affluent and wealthy could afford these sneakers. Now days though, you [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] can get the same quality styles for more than 40% of what people paid for [U]discount mbt shoes[/U] them just a year ago.

    Buying MBT shoes on clearance is a great way [U][B]MBT[/U][/B] to save a bunch of money. Just because they are sold at [B]buy mbt shoes[/B] a discount does not mean it is an imitation or a damaged style. Most of the [U]mbt shoes clearance[/U] models available at clearance prices are [B]mbt shoes best prices[/B] just discontinued types that retailers have an abundance of, and are reasonably priced.

    Receiving the anti-shoe at discounted prices is not something that takes very [B]mbt walking shoes[/B] long. However, one must implement some simple steps that will help you pinpoint your [B]mbt shoes cheap[/B] selections. One thing you should do first and foremost is [U][B]MBT shoes[/U][/B] to know your foot size. Go to any retailer and they will properly measure your width and length for [U]MBT shoes[/U] you or just use the chart yourself.

    After you know your size, start looking on [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] line for some of the best places to buy MBT shoes on the Internet. On the first [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt sandals[/URL][/B] couple pages of Google, you'll find the best on line retailers that sell the anti-shoe, but try adding the words [B]mbt sandals[/B] clearance, discount, on sale to your normal search of "MBT shoes."


    Retailers know that [U]MBT[/U] they have to do what they can to stay in business during this economic meltdown. Some [U][B]mbt walking shoes[/U][/B] people may shy away from MBT shoes clearance items, but most [B]mbt shoes review[/B] will find these styles more than satisfying to meet their [B]mbt walking shoes[/B] fitness requirements as well as saving a substantial amount of money.
