Journey of the Official Bridal Makeup Look

I've been waiting for this for a long time, folks. My absolute favorite beauty YouTuber, Jaclyn Hill, finally put out a bridal makeup tutorial. Apparently I haven't been the only one requesting such a video for a long long time now. 

The girl is a genius and her knack for finding the perfect shadow combinations never ceases to amaze me. This is no exception. I don't know how she does it. 

Anyways, lately I've been trying to figure out what look I am going to do for the big day. Now, we've got 268 days to go, but since I'll be doing my own makeup, I wanted to figure this out early to allow myself time to perfect the technique so I'm not spending 2 hours on my face the day of. 

I had found a few looks that I quite enjoyed and even thought I had found THE ONE, but when T came home later that night, the first words out of his mouth were "why do you have so much stuff on your face? You look like one of those jersey girls"... apparently he isn't a fan of the smokey eye.

Back to the drawing board. 

While I was in Ohio recently, my cousin and I were playing around trying to go in a different direction, and we decided on the look below. Now, I need to work on my blending a little, but I thought this was a very solid option. But something told me I could do better.

Enter Jaclyn Hill's impeccable timing. Her tutorial was PERFECT, and although I had to substitute a few shadows to match what I had in my own collection, the final look turned out exactly how I wanted it. 

And of course I had to have a little fun since I was feeling quite beautiful (which is a good sign, right??), so I got a little creative...

Again, I had to substitute two or three shadows because I didn't have a few in my collection, so feel free to do the same! I also started out with the Rosy Outlook blush, but went over it with Mac's blush in Melba because I prefer a slightly peachier look to my cheeks.

My lipstick is in the shade Fig by Bite Beauty, and over it I am wearing their lipgloss in the shade Rambutan.
