After combing through websites and Pinterest for the perfect hair style, I ended up with two finalists. I would have loved to wear my hair down since this is usually what I do, but being July and possibly very humid, I didn't want to take the chance with my thick, curly/frizzy hair. Plus I think wearing hair up (at least for my hair type) for a wedding is much more elegant and polished.
As far as makeup goes, I was oscillating between the smoky look and something less dramatic, since it will be an afternoon wedding and I'm most likely to smear the makeup everywhere (I'm a very weepy person, regardless of whether it's happy or sad. And raccoon eyes is not really an "in" look for a bride.)
There were some non-negotiables, though: waterproof mascara and liquid eyeliner. Two items I usually don't leave the house without. This brought up the discussion of durability and quality of organic makeups. While they definitely are superior because they don't contain toxic chemicals, their wearability and ability to last a whole day are still not fantastic. The two lines that Acorn Organic Salon uses are Honeybee Gardens and Shear Miracles.
Question of the Day: What's your take on organic makeup? Any other hair/makeup advice?
